I need some help with DB2 database. I am new to DB2 and would like to perform a backup of log files. I right-clicked on a specific database and selected "Configure Parameters" and under "LOGS"  there is an option "LOGARCHMETH1" and its value can be changed. Could somebody help me understand the meaning of these values and its purpose:

1. Userexit
2. Logretain
3. Disk
4. TSM
5. Vendor

In DB2, how many important/critical log files are generated during transactions and what are the names of these log files?
