DPF IXF Format(RIMS)

On DPF only, you can't Load a multi-partition table from an exported file with an IXF format. We've run into this a couple of times when we had to save off data before dropping/recreating a table. I can understand that there may be something in th...

Parallel Runstats collection on a partitioned-table(RIMS)

[JPMC EDW] Currently, when a Runstats is performed on a partitioned-table, each partition is processed sequentially. This can prolong the duration of Runstats operation, especially for very large tables where Runstats duration is concerning. Ideal...

Incremental Runstats (modify existing statistics based on delta from previous statistics).(RIMS)

Customer requests an incremental runstats support. Specifically the ability for runstats to modify existing statistics based on the new data that came in or was modified after the previous runstats was invoked.

Redesign of cleanup on remote cursor load of LOB data

Customer migrated from DB2 9.1 on Solaris to DB2 9.7 onLinux. As restore is not supported between different endianarchitecture, load by remote cursor was used for datamovement. There was one single table storing about 400 GB ofLOB data (BLOB), tot...

Support of RUNSTATS of range-partitioned tables on single partition

RUNSTATS on range-partitioned tables always runs on allpartitions. If all indexes are partitioned, a RUNSTATS of a singlePartition would be helpful.

Codepage option for db2move

DB2 to add support for alter table without going on need for reorg immediately and allow full access (read,write,alter...etc)

After setting compatibility vector to ORA, we expect alter table to not affect read/write access. In our test, we see that after dropping even a single column, table goes in reorg_pending = Y status and we can not use reorg inplace to continue ins...

How to move the thousands DBs which use a combination of SMS (syscatspace) and RAW to full automatic storage. Some DBs are 100+TB so unload/load is not an option. Need a date for elimination of SMS/RAW support to determine our priotiy!
