New privilege for IMPORT into a restrictive database

Granting DATAACCESS authority works but is not a desirable option as the user would get access to all tables. Granting CONTROL or INSERT/SELECT, without DATAACCESS, returns SQL0551N. As a result customers are left on their own to pursue and figure...

Defaut DATA BUFFER value in LOAD.

Wells Fargo requested if it possible to come up with a lower default value for DATA BUFFER without specifying DATA BUFFER in the load command. For example a registry variable like LOAD_DEFAULT_DATA_BUFFER=1000 that would take effect whenever the l...

Automate life cycle management of data

AUTO_REORG uses reorgchk output, like F2 criteria. The problem is that F2 does not take into account pagelevel dictionary. The size can be important, like 5K out of a 16K page, and therefore F2 criteria is always below the 70%... and tables will k...
