My votes: Db2 Automation Tool for z/OS

Showing 34 of 13285

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

HAA$UREO - Max Tape Vols/DASD Units should be created on HAA$DSD as separate fields

Seems having Max Tape Vols/DASD Units is dangerous. These should be separated into two different entry fields. VOLCNT is tape volumes, UNCNT is units. Also these should not be on a general panel, HAA$UREO. This should be on HAA$DSD. The fields rea...

Automation Tool incorrectly building RUNSTAT jobs when TS has NPSI being RUNSTAT

Unfortunately the product has been generating jobs incorrectly from the getgo for RUNSTATS. When using load balancing across 20 jobs, the partitions should be spread across the 20 jobs. This works when the NPSI is not having RUNSTATS. When the NPS...

HAA - PBR containing XML generated REORG that abended because XML running at the same time as an index in the base table containing the XML column in two separate jobs

Base table has index: Name Schema T DB Name TS Name Cols Rows Chks * * * * * * * * ------------------ -------- - -------- -------- ------ ----------- ---- MASTER_TRANS_MTR ZAP2 T DZAP2QR1 SQR1MTR 17 10 0 XQR14MTR Column Name Seq No O Col Type Leng...

HAA - RUNSTATS grouping all NPSI partitions into one job instead of spreading the objects across multiple jobs

Running RUNSTATS on TS with NPSIs. All partitions were put into the same job instead of being spread across the 20 jobs. This is true for Reorg, but not RUNSTATS.

HAA did not pick up the need for NPSIs to be reorged when TS was being reorged

SEMHNSA TS partition 278 having 2 NPSIs was triggered for REORG. HAA is run 6 times on Saturday and 4 times on Sunday since this TS is so large, 7 billion rows in some environments. REXX code rebuilds the RGNSA001 so that only 100M rows are reorge...

Need enhancement in product to be able to have entry fields to be able to specify for NPSI objects CARDF limit to select partitions, such as only reorg up to 100M rows using RTS LASTREORGTIME

Had to develop REXX code to prune the 7B row NPSI TS to 100M row per execution. Product should handle this.
