SQLAdria Seminar – Zagreb 2011 DSNZPARMs for DBA's

A DBA is not always just a DBA. DBA’s are frequently called for all kinds of issues, required to know enough about all aspects of DB2 to track down the root-cause of problems . DSNZPARM is just one of these aspects. Today, both Systems programmers and DBA’s need to know and agree on DSNZPARM settings as some have direct impact on the application and the performance of it, some may have unintended consequences. Let’s explore some of those parameter controls that may affect application behavior.

SQLAdria Seminar – Zagreb 2011 Rev up your SQL Applications with Enhanced Statistics

You may have heard that Enhanced Statistics were added to DB2 for z/OS with DB2 9, and you probably wondered what they are and how they can help. This presentation will answer your questions about what the statistics are, how they are enabled, how they get collected, and what effect they will have on your SQL execution.
Disclaimer: I do not work for IBM, and the conclusions in this document are resolved from research done by my colleagues and myself. There is no guarantee of the correctness of any statement in this presentation, although I have done as much as I can to verify my conclusions.
