24 June 2008
11:15 - 12:15
SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2008 Optimisation Service Centre and Optimisation Expert

Objectives:
Learn the basics of using DB2 Optimization Service Centre and Optimization Expert for z/OS and how they can solve common SQL Tuning problems.

Outline:
Introduction to Optimization Service Center (OSC) and Optimization Expert (OE)
Tuning workloads
Individual query analysis and tuning
Access plan graph
Query Annotation
The advisors – statistics, query and index
Visual Plan Hints

Full Abstract:
DB2 Optimization Service Centre and Optimization Expert for z/OS are SQL tuning tools with tightly integrated tuning advisors and advanced tuning tools to address both individual SQL statements and SQL workloads. Tuning advisors provide statistics, indexing, and query-rewrite recommendations, while advanced tuning tools like query annotation, access plan graph, query report, and visual plan hint facilitate deep SQL performance analyses when needed.


23 June 2008
12:00 - 13:00
SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2008 Buffer Pool Tuning

Objectives:
DB2 buffer pools are a key resource for ensuring good performance. This is becoming increasingly important as the difference between processor speed and DASD response time for a random access IO widens in each new generation of processor. z/OS can be configured with large amounts of storage which, if used wisely, can help compensate by using storage to avoid IO.

The purpose of this session is to:
describe the functions of the DB2 buffer pools
outline four methods for measuring the performance of a buffer pool
make recommendations on how to set up and monitor the DB2 buffer pools

The session is intended for DB2 system administrators but may be of interest to any z/OS performance specialist. It is assumed that the attendee is familiar with DB2 and performance tuning but if that is not the case then the DB2 manual “Performance Monitoring and Tuning Guide” is recommended reading and can be found here:
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/db2/zos/library.html

Outline:
Bufferpool Functions and Operation
Instrumentation and Monitoring - Hit Ratio, Page Residency time, Reread Count
Buffer Pool Analyzer
Results from customer studies

Full Abstract:
This session will describe the primary functions and operation of the DB2 bufferpools including the parameters that are used to control their behaviour. Four methods for measuring the performance and efficiency of each pool are described along with their advantages and disadvantages. Recommendations are then made for how to use the bufferpools to ensure good performance. Lastly some resullts are used to illustrate the points discussed during the presentation


19 June 2007
14:15 - 15:15
SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2007 DB2 9 new SQL functions for application developers

Presentation will cover Intersect & Except, Instead of Triggers, Merge, Select from Merge, Update and Delete, Truncate, Order by and Fetch first in subselect; the new data types. Same presentation will be conducted at the DB2 Technical conference in Dusseldorf.
 


18 June 2007
14:00 - 15:30
SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2007 Native XML support in DB2 9 for z/OS

Presentation will be based on the material presented by Guogen Zhang at the Anaheim IOD and it will include some worked examples.  Simple demonstration wil be included in presentation accordingly to the network access.  Primary goal would be to show that XML in V9 is a straightforward extension of existing relational technology, is simple to use and it works well.
