Q Replication for Z

Q Capture to fetch XML document once instead of twice regardless of how many targets are registered

The current situation with QReplication architecture is that if you have 2 subs for one table, Q Capture will fetch the XML document twice from the table, once for each sub. Once the investment has been made for a unit of work, and all that remain...

Encrypted Emails from ASNMON on Z

In our replication environment ASNMON is running on Z to monitor Q Replication processes on a significant number of Z systems. In case ASNMON records an exception, ASNMON sends emails to admin accounts. The mail server team generally requires encr...

Add an ability to start a q subscription via MODIFY on the Capture started task

Currently Q Capture subscriptions can be interacted with either via MODIFY command invoked on a Q Capture started task, or SQL insert statements executed on table IBMQREP_SIGNAL. For many customers, executing a MODIFY command to perform an action ...

Removed forced Requirement to force Replication Center to only run wit IBM JDK/JRE

Citigroup has a rule that only JDK/JRE that are supported by Citi are allowed to be used on all products that are packaged for general users. Currently the internal packaging team at Citi striped the IBM JDK/JRE from a Data Server Client 11.1.2. A...

Ignore log records for a dedicated subscription in IGNORETRANS

In very rare cases Db2 cannot provide log records for Q Capture, e.g. in case of a version mismatch, a compression dictionary error, etc. Removing the subscription and reloading the target is a practical approach. But in some situations (e.g., non...

SQLREP Capture and Apply

#1. SQLREP Capture Program problem There is no way to replay a single registration from DB2 log. Currently it is all or nothing when it comes to starting Capture from a synch point. This is a problem because customers want to have the ability for ...

Q Replication to Kafka Targets

Kafka evolves as a platform for real time data streaming, analytics, and event processing. For enterprise customers the challenge is to let data originating on IBM z flow to Kafka. Popular options are Kafka APIs, MQ, data replication. Only data re...

Prompt customer need to reduce prune interval

In a busy Q Rep env with many bi-di Q subs, there may lots of P2PNORECAPTURE signal insert into IBMQREP_SIGNAL control table by Q Apply program. As per design, Q Capture delete up to 10000 rows at a time for one prune interval. When the average P2...

Reduce the number of Db2 threads when replicating table with XML column

When a table with a XML column is replicated, we observed a high number of SMF Db2 accounting records, one for each row that a have a XML column. The records are due to Db2 threads created by the replication process. As the Db2 SMF records are g...

ASNCLP to support a VALIDATE(NO) option

When creating new replication configurations ASNCLP checks the existence of MQ Queues, qmaps, tables, etc. When deploying to production, we need to have pre-prepared and tested the implementation scripts. However, because ASNCLP validates that the...
