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...
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

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...
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 ...
Reorging of TS with NPSI in the maintenance window causes increase elapsed time and shortage of DASD. Need the capability in HAA eliminate partitions over a certain row amount. We use 100M. Using this the reorgs do not abend. Each week the next se...
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...
