  • This chart shows the DB2 UDB for iSeries strategic directions. As you progress through this course, you will be able to relate the V5R4 enhancements back to these strategic initiatives. SQL is the industry standard for database access and programming. While the heritage of application development on the iSeries platform has been to use native interfaces, more and more application developers are using SQL as a programming language as the result of the DB2 UDB for iSeries strategic investment in SQL. You can see the trend toward greater use of SQL in the upper graph on this chart. SQL is the strategic database interface for DB2 UDB for iSeries to accommodate all the porting of third-party applications and tools , a . Almost all of which third-party solutions utilize SQL-based interfaces for their data access. As you can see on the lower right-hand graph, DB2 UDB for iSeries actually is the first DBMS to fully comply with the Core level of the SQL 2003 Standard. The beauty of the IBM DB2 UDB family is that we can all share from this, and DB2 UDB for iSeries will continue to leverage the technology leadership position of IBM and maintain close compatibility with the other DB2 UDB family members. Additionally, DB2 UDB for iSeries will continue to leverage and build on the strengths the iSeries. Those strengths include reliability , /availability, total cost of ownership, scalability, and usability.
  • As mentioned earlier, the iSeries Navigator V5R4 enhancements contain some of the most notable DB2 enhancements. Ignoring the DB2 OnDemand Performance Center & Health Center, most of the enhancements listed on this chart are pretty minor. With many of these enhancements, just adding a graphical interface for system commands such as Copy File (CPYF). Onto the more significant enhancements… ============ Delimiter option on creates allows the user to control the naming mode that iNav uses on Creates since the SQL & System naming mode have differences in object ownership and authorities.
  • The Database component of iSeries Navigator is the major driver of DB2 UDB simplification in V5R4 with the addition of new tools and streamlining of existing tools. This new combination of tools is known as the DB2 OnDemand Performance Center. The system-wide Index Advisor is one of the new tools in V5R4. Index advice from the DB2 UDB query optimizer is not a new capability in V5R4. Feedback on suggested indexes in past releases could be found in optimizer debug messages within a joblog or a database monitor collection. However, this feedback was only available if someone manually started a database monitor or turned on debug messaging. Even if this was done, an analyst had to deal with the complexities of extracting the advised index details of various joblogs and database monitor files. The new Index Advisor eliminates these hurdles with a click of mouse. No user intervention such as starting a database monitor is needed since the query optimizer automatically logs index advice for all queries to a repository in V5R4. Just right click on your Database name in the iSeries Navigator tree and select the “Index Advisor” task and you’re given the output displayed here. Even better is the fact that index advice provided in V5R4 by the SQL Query Engine (SQE) query optimizer is more intelligent and complete. The Index Advice given in past releases only focused on filtering criteria of a query and ignored the join, grouping and ordering criteria. Again, this design required manual intervention from an analyst to take the DB2 index advice and then review the associated query to supplement the DB2 index advice. Look closely at the Index Advisor output and you will also see that the optimizer also provides advice on the type of index to create. Some queries may benefit from a traditional radix index while others would benefit from an encoded vector index structure. =============== SQE still does not advise indexes for IN & OR predicates SystemWide Advisor Repository - QSYS2/SYSIXADV Index Advice can be done at Database, Schema & Table level
