After starting DB2 compression for a segmented
tablespace containing multiple tables, the actual
space savings turn out to be less than the
pre-compression estimate. What would cause this
occurrence?

1.The pre-compression estimate was based on running
DSN1COMP against an image copy of the tablespace.
2.The compress dictionary does not exist since the REORG
was performed with the KEEPDICTIONARY option.
3.The full compression does not take place until the
next time the DB2 sub-system is stopped an re-started.
4.The tablespace's compression dictionary is based on
the first table loaded and may not be optimal for the
other tables.
5.The application program that inserted rows into the
table had the COMPRESS option set to NO
