Session 3. DB2 10 for z/OS: Performance Best Practices
Speaker: - Pallavi Priyadarshini - IBM India
Best Practices for Accessing IBM DB2 z/OS with High Availability
Here is a proposed abstract -
This session will describe the technologies that need to be deployed to ensure
the highest availability for application servers accessing a DB2 data sharing
group. Only implementing bits and pieces exposes applications to outages due
to a member failure or a member slow down. If configured correctly, application
servers will fully utilize the availability and scalability aspects of Parallel Sysplex.
Presentation will also cover best practices and new availability features that are delivered in DB2 z/OS server and the latest DB2 Connect drivers.
Session 4 :- Achieving Access Path Stability - Chris Crone IBM
Query performance degradation caused by access path change is a top challenge for the DBA. DB2 9 and DB2 10 offer some useful features to help stabilize access paths. This presentation will guide you through the information you need to take advantage of this new DB2 function - to manage, compare, and reuse access paths.
Session 5 - DB2 Migration Planning and Best Practises
We will share tips to help facilitate your migration, with planning information about migrating to DB2 10 for z/OS from either DB2 9 or DB2 Version 8. You’ll learn some surprising facts, pitfalls to avoid and lessons learned from those who have migrated before you, such as enabling fast start.
