About this course

Course code TPZL1_CL213
Duration 4 Days

This course teaches you to perform, basic database administrative tasks using DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. These tasks include creating and populating databases and implementing a logical design to support recovery requirements. The access strategies selected by the DB2 Optimizer will be examined using the DB2 Explain tools.

Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using the db2diag.log file messages to direct your investigation of problems, as well as using the db2pd commands.

Prerequisites

You should be able to:

  • Use basic OS functions such as utilities, file permissions, hierarchical file system, commands, and editor
  • State the functions of the Structured Query Language (SQL), and be able to construct DDL, DML, and authorization statements

These skills can be developed by taking:

  • OS Training:
  • Linux Basics and Administration
  • Windows Systems Administration

  • DB2 SQL Workshop
  • DB2 Fundamentals

Delegates will learn how to

  • Administer a DB2 database system using commands and GUI tools
  • Compare DMS, SMS and Automatic storage management for table space storage
  • Implement a given logical database design using DB2 to support integrity and concurrency requirements
  • List and describe the components of DB2
  • Define a DB2 recovery strategy and perform the tasks necessary to support the strategy
  • Use autonomic features of DB2
  • Examine Explain output to determine access strategy chosen by Optimizer
  • Investigate current application activity that might indicate performance problems using SQL statements
  • Implement DB2 security
