One of our customers working with REORG jobs built using Automation tool 4.3 have normally problems of "Sort Capacity exceeded". In order to solve this problem, our customer is using a customized skeleton HAAREORJ with syntaax: //DFSPARM DD * OPTI...
Enable rebind of packages after a reorg in Automation Tool
I want to use Automation Tool to reorganise a tablespace to materialise a change to a UTS. I will issue the ALTER TABLESPACE MAXPARTITIONS nnn statement during the working day, which will put the tablespace into the AREOR state. I have a job profi...
Ability to exclude packages from the rebind utility
Currently, rebind statements are generated based on what objects have been runstats'd -when included with a RUNSTATS utility profile- or everything -when only using the REBIND utility in the profile-. However, this also includes packages that are ...
HAA - when doing a Pending Data Change, such as DSSIZE, reorgs are generated at partition level instead of being escalated up to TS level
Changing the DSSIZE on a PBR. The entire TS must be reorged to apply the pending data change. I have coded the object set to accomplish this. The automation tool should have the intelligence to do this. I need also to do this for a DPSI index, cha...
Db2 Automation Tool allow users to generate utility control statements using LISTDEFS.
There are many options that can be used with LISTDEF utility however Db2 Automation Tool does not provide this flexibility.
For instance we need to use DEFIN...
Add SORTDATA NO, RECLUSTER NO capability to generated reorgs for PDC PBR
PBRs having pending data change can be quite large resulting in a lot of temp storage needed for sorting data. Since the reorg is at TS level, this can be quite large for tables with huge CARDF. The following keywords should be able to be selected...
Making the real-time stats externalization optional
The Automation Tool issues the ACCESS DATABASE(*) SPACE(*) MODE(STATS) command whenever the REALTIMESTATS option is used in an exception profile. This default behavior causes some problems: Since the ACCESS command is issued to every DB and TS in ...
Detect like-named objects and convert to non-part objects on current SSID
Object Profile contained some like-named objects that were added to the profile when they were Partitioned and now they are no longer Partitioned. This would require us to update the Object Profile for those objects and resubmit the job.
Add Support for BLKSZLIM keyword of TEMPLATE utility
Using the Large Block Interface provided by z/OS, the performance of the Db2 COPY utility can be greatly improved when image copy data sets are created on tape. The Db2 Automation Tool does not currently allow the user to specify the BLKSZLIM keyw...
For RPN TS, each partition reorged need a separate IC tape drive, need a way to limit the number of tape drives per iteration of REORG for the IC
If 65 partitions of a RPN with NPSIs are being reorg at the same time, 65 IC tape drives would be required. That is excessive and probably all shops can't support that. Even when no NPSIs, this would be a problem. HAA generates LISTPARTS 4096 when...
