- the current hardware z15
- or the current operating system z/OS 2.4 ?
As of today there are no APARs/PTFs needed to tolerate such a migration.
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…Continue

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…Continue
