„Access Path Recovery for DB2 11 & 12 using RUNSTATS Rescue“

15. November 2016

What is the number one reason for bad access paths? Bad statistics!

Why do you have bad statistics? Bad timing is the number one reason, followed by manually updated stats and then forgotten about.

RUNSTATS Rescue for DB2 z/OS saves you when these events happen. The basis is a complete copy of all productive required statistical data in the DB2 catalog. This should be regularly executed and the data saved away. The best way to do this is to use a Generation Gengroup which automatically stores “copies” of the data. RUNSTATS Rescue then provides a front end where you can use a variety of inputs to get back you good access paths.

  • Dynamic SQL, Static SQL completely covered
  • Why PLAN Stability doesn’t save you when you need it
  • What’s new in DB2 12 for Dynamic SQL that still will not save you

„Compliance with compliments! Viable DB2 z/OS workload tracking“.

16. November, 2016

Audit and Compliance is a need that many companies want and have to fulfill.

There’s different ways and tools that promise to be able to do it, but what can they really do and what are the associated costs? This presentation introduces DB2 10/11 technology exploitation that delivers any DML, DDL, DCL being executed in a DB2 environment along with identification details. Learn how you can run Audit analytics against a long‐term repository, pinpointing who executed a query, when and from where. Analyze your entire workload to understand access patterns and abnormalities.

Don’t let ICIs put your DB2 application in the ICU!

How to discover incompatible changes in your DB2 System

The what and why of ICIs
If you’ve been paying close attention, you will have noticed that over the course of the past couple releases of DB2 for z/OS, IBM has been making changes that can modify the behavior of your DB2 application programs. The number of incompatible changes being introduced by IBM started off slowly in DB2 9 but has grown to a significant number today. So much so that there are ways to trace incompatible changes (using IFCIDs and ICIs, or Incompatible Change Indicators), as well as methods to repress the changes, even if only for a period of time.
Ways to deal with incompatibilities
This session will discuss the incompatible changes, their potential impact on your applications, as well as provide guidance on how to tackle the whole experience. And you’ll also see how SEG’s Workload Expert technology makes it easier to manage and control these incompatible changes. With all of this information at your disposal, you can make sure that your DB2 applications do not wind up in the ICU (intensive care unit)!
Customer experiences
Now that we all know everything about ICI’s, let us have a look at how the separatly licensable BIF/ICI Use Case of  WorkloadExpert can help you find where the “bad guys” are and how to continuously check that everything is ok. This presentation will show how you can find out ICI Details for static and dynamic SQL, and then we will show real customer results from a “BiF hunt”.
