Add Option to Migrate Datasets that were Recalled as Part of a Scan
Please add an option so a user can specify that the LAT job submitted migrates any datasets (thinking archive log datasets here) that it had to recall to complete the scan. An example would be where a user attempts to scan multiple days in the pas...
Add Ability to Pick/Choose Which "Warnings" Are Considered Fatal VS Acceptable
We would like to be able to pick and choose which LAT warnings are acceptable vs which require additional attention. Today, all warnings will generate a return code 4; however, some warnings (like ALAA061W) will completely eliminate a tablespace f...
Add Ability to Specify Archive Datasets as Input for LAT Scan
A user will run a scan to create an archive file, or several scans over time, each creating a file. When he wants to revisit these, he has found he is only able to specify the start and end times in his window. It seems that LAT will read through ...
The tool currently does not support reporting on tables if they have a clone table defined on them. The job ends with a code of 8 and message - ALAA506E-Base/Clone tables not supported
This means that we cannot run a summary or detail report agai...
Fast Apply - allow ALA@FSP to pass work to DSNTEP4 if unable to process query
We use IBM Fast Apply (program = ALA@FSP) to apply SQL statements we have generated (not coming from LAT as any undo/redo activity). The tool cannot handle everything that is supported by DSNTEP4. So, thought is to have it push the work to DSNETP4...
How can the objects be reported on when doing a QUIET TIME report using CORRID.
Using Quiet Time to recover objects for a CORRID. The report only has the available quiet times, but not the objects that were updated and need to be recovered. Need to run a summary report to get the objects.
Support for creating DB2 Load Data Sets in RECFM=VBS Format with embedded LOB data
DB2 LAT to support creation of load files in RECFM=VBS with embedded LOB/XML data. DB2 LAT supports log processing to create load files for tables with LOB/XML columns. At present DB2 LAT only allows LOB/XML columns to be extracted into PDS or PDS...
Reformat the SYSCOPY Report in INFOM ddname to be a single line instead of two lines
I would also like to see this on one line. Takes up too much vertical space. This would also be more readable with a columnized report. ICTYPE STYPE TTYPE OTYPE DSNUM LDSNUM HDSNUM LOGGED INSTANCE ------ ----- -------- ----- ----- ------ ------ --...
Improve handling of tables with structure changes in Log Analyzer Tool
The current handling of tables that have had structure changes (alters, drop/recreate) is extremely cumbersome and difficult to pro-actively manage, requiring TVFILE entries for altered tables and duplicate structures for tables that have been dro...
