This course examines and explains the critical factors that affect Db2 for z/OS performance from a systems perspective. The effective use of monitoring and tuning tools is an integral part of all tuning topics throughout the course. This course is appropriate for Db2 for z/OS environments up to and including Db2 11 for z/OS.<br><br>This course is only available for one-company, on-site presentations.
DB2 for z/OS: Monitoring & Tuning for Systems' Performance
A sound understanding of Db2 and z/OS concepts is required.
- identify the Db2 and MVS factors that affect performance
- plan for Db2 subsystem monitoring and tuning
- detect poor performance using various techniques
- identify tuning opportunities
- carry out effective problem detection through the use of an established performance and monitoring policy
- Implement and interpret Db2 related trace outputs covering I/O tuning, buffer pool tuning, EDM pool tuning, IRLM tuning, thread tuning.
