  3. 3. Abstract: Application programmers and DBAs both have an interest in ensuring good application performance. However, performance issues will inevitably arise and it can be difficult to decide where the problem is. In this presentation we will look at some key performance metrics and how they can indicate what type of performance problem is occurring. We will also discuss solutions to some common performance issues. The emphasis will be on interpreting what the monitor numbers mean, rather than on any specific performance monitoring tool. Ulf Heinrich (Software Engineering GmbH) - "Dynamic SQL Management and Protection” Ulf Heinrich is the Director of Solutions Delivery at SOFTWARE ENGINEERING GmbH. He specializes in DB2 recovery issues and database maintenance, focusing on the growing requirement for 24x7 operations and cost reduction. As a consultant at large customer sites, he has implemented database maintenance procedures and recovery strategies, and also experienced the pitfalls of recovery scenarios under real-world recovery pressure. His activities cover EMEA, as well as North America through SE’s U.S. subsidiary, SEGUS Inc. He’s involved in the development of SE’s maintenance and recovery solutions. Abstract: Dynamic SQL opened up some great opportunities facing today’s dynamic business needs. However, the downside is that dynamic SQL by nature is difficult to manage and to control. Especially in comparison to the capabilities we have for our static world, we lost control! There is no BIND, there is no REBIND and a RUNSTATS invalidates access paths even if it doesn’t touch the DB2 catalog. This presentation shows how you get back control of what happens in your environment. You get introduced to the various monitoring options that DB2 already provides out of the box, procedures you can implement to gain the same control and quality that we know from the static world and lots of hands-on tips and tricks that make your life in a dynamic world much easier. Rick Weaver (BMC) "A Row’s Life" Rick Weaver has over 30 years of experience in Systems and Database Administration for IMS and DB2 database systems, and has been involved in developing large, complex, mission critical applications in a variety of business areas for several Fortune 50 companies. At BMC since 1994, Rick has worked in Software Consulting, Professional Services, Product Marketing, and Product Management. Rick is currently Product Manager for DB2 Solutions, responsible for setting product direction and managing release requirements for the BMC Software DB2 for z/OS product line. Abstract: Abstract – Rows in a DB2 z/OS database get mauled and moved and wholly and partially duplicated. There are different ways to find them and different surroundings. And most DBAs find they need to understand these
  4. 4. transformations thoroughly to manage performance and recovery and even security. In this presentation, we take a lighthearted view of one row’s life to emphasize some of the internals of DB2 on the z/Os platform including impact of basic DML, Utility implications, and how various DB2 features (e.g. compression) impact the appearance of the row. Bullet Points • Have a high level understanding of the physical incarnation of data within a DB2 tablespace, log, and other resources. • See the impact of some data definition choices on the physical structure of a row. • See some differences DB2 Version 9 will introduce to row format and versioning. • Understand how the artifacts discussed can be used for recovery and other purposes. • Piqued interest in learning more details about physical page layout and logging within DB2. Scott Hayes (DBI) - "The Top 10 SQL Toolbox Commands You Must Run Today" Scott Hayes is an IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant and IBM Information Management Champion, a frequent speaker at IDUG and regional DB2 User Group Events, is the host of The DB2Night Show™ Webinar series, and author of the widely read DB2 LUW Performance Blogs.

  5. 5. volunteer and a member of IBM's Gold Consultant and Information Champion Programs. Abstract: Adding just a few tricks to your SQL repertoire can save a tremendous amount of time in administering and maintaining your DB2 databases. Advanced SQL techniques aren't just for developers; by combining these patterns with a solid understanding of the system catalog, DBAs can generate sophisticated sets of XML, SQL, DDL, and even programming/scripting code for other languages. Although vendor tools can generate certain types of useful data and code, DBAs also receive many "one-off" requests that may appear to require a lot of hand typing, but are actually well-suited for SQL automation. This session will introduce DBAs to powerful SQL techniques that generate data and code with minimal effort, leading to time saved and fewer errors. The examples provided come from the real-world experiences of a battle-hardened DBA. Note: Although that presentation is typically offered in the LUW track, the SQL tricks covered in the talk are also compatible with DB2 on z/OS. That said, the talk contains no z/OS-specific material (ZPARMs and whatnot).
