Tivoli Storage Manager v6.2.3 "Database Cache Hit Ratio is too low." error

Last Modified: 2013-11-14
I'm running Tivoli Storage Manager v6.2.3 and every evening I'm getting "Database Cache Hit Ratio is too low.       89.8 < 98       Increase bufferpool size value."

However all searches for solutions refer to TSM v5.x when it had a custom database. The solutions all revolved around managing the custom database. Now that TSM v6.x is using DB2 as far as I can see this issue has a totally different solution from 5.x that needs tackled from the DB2 side.

I'm not really that up to speed with DB2 although I am an Oracle DBA so do have lots of DBA experience. Can someone point me in the direction of the way to fix this issue please.
