Do you set Db2 application performance thresholds?

Performance thresholds are not a new concept.  They’re easy to understand in principle, but why do people avoid using them?  Some users believe that performance thresholds can cause you to react to a quick fix and often make performance worse than when you started.  If you’re setting Db2 performance thresholds based on changing application conditions, you are trying to anticipate what is normal and adjust from that.  Maybe you ignore using thresholds because they can’t detect the anomalies…

Leveraging your Db2 Skills with Big Data

The Challenge

The idea of the traditional data center being centered on relational database technology is quickly evolving.  Many new data sources exist today that did not exist as little as 5 years ago.  Devices such as active machine sensors on machinery, autos and aircraft, medical sensors, RFIDs as well as social media, and web click through activity are creating tremendous volumes of mostly unstructured data which cannot be…

Management Overview: DB2 Continuous Delivery Function Level Upgrades

By Julian StuhlerBackgroundWith the advent of DB2 12 for z/OS, IBM has moved to a more agile approach for delivering new function to DB2 customers, known as “continuous delivery”. Major new releases of DB2 will now happen more rarely, with smaller packets of new functionality being delivered via the routine product maintenance process. This allows IBM to develop and release new features much more frequently, thereby reducing “time to value” – a familiar DevOps message.To allow DB2 customers to absorb this new function in a flexible and efficient way, IBM has also delivered a comprehensive set of capabilities that allow the “function level” of the overall DB2 system to be easily progressed while insulating individual applications from the impact of any changes via the “application compatibility level” set for each program.Read Julian Stuhler's article…See More

Traditional Db2 Development and Modern Database Development

This article is the first of a four-part series addressing Db2 for z/OS and modern development utilizing a Agile methodology and DevOps processes. In this article we define traditional versus modern development and how Db2 for z/OS, while remaining the premier database for high volume system of record applications, might be left behind when it comes to best practices involving innovation. Did you notice that “Db2” follows “Traditional” in the title of this article, but “Database” follows “Modern”? It is my opinion that Db2 for z/OS is not the first database that comes to mind when considering a DevOps development methodology. However, there is no reason why it shouldn’t be!The first thing we need to do is to identify what we mean by traditional versus modern development. In this series of articles, we will be speaking specifically of the waterfall methodology versus an Agile methodology and DevOps practices.To read the entire article please follow this link:…See More
