Webinar präsentiert von SEGUS & SOFTWARE ENGINEERING mit:

  • Martin Hubel, IBM Gold Consultant & IBM Champion for IM

  • Roy Boxwell, Senior Software Architect

In this presentation I will show and explain the current number of limits within Db2 on z/OS:

Starting with relatively basic simple things like DSSIZE or PIECESIZE. Moving on to Linear Dataset limits (32 for segmented spaces, 254 for LOB). We then will have a quick look at how the COPYPOOL is looking before diving off to the world of PBGs, where you must be aware of MAXPARTITONS among other things. Then we will review SEQUENCES and Numeric Primary Key usage before finally delving into the abstract limit of Db2 within the Db2 engine including DBATs etc.
