WLM threshold for used log space

We need an activity threshold to trigger an action whenever a specific activity consumes more than a given amount of transaction log space. I know that there is already some control mechanism by using DB CFG parameters MAX_LOG and NUM_LOG_SPAN , b...

Application connections storm slow downs the DB response

I've been assisting with an ecommerce site. During typical days, let's say non-peak/low volume of orders, the DB response is always good. However, the DB response time slows down for a few seconds, notably during peak season/high amount of orders....

new aggregated WLM threshold for LOCKLIST at workload/service class level

We have MAXLOCK db-cfg parameter which can be used to avoid a single connection (UOW) to consume the LOCKLIST space. But this parameter some times it not enough. I have seen LOCK escalation cases happening (which locked system tables, causing huge...

Lowering the limit for ACTIVITYTOTALTIME and UOWTOTALTIME

We should be able to trap the transaction that spent more than 10 seconds with a threshold. Can we change the low limit of the parameter ACTIVITYTOTALTIME and UOWTOTALTIME to allow a magnitude of milli second.

Enhance Db2 WLM to enable it to prioritize access to physical I/O

We have a Db2 AESE 11.1 fp4a mixed use (but no column tables) data warehouse on an AIX 7.2 LPAR that is limited to 75K IOPS by NetApp. When the threshold is met, high priority OLTP queries submitted by our 1000 retail store POS systems can hang in...
