use of wildcards for table selection with REORG,RUNSTATS etc

Certain utilities that most of the time operate on a (sub)set of tables like REORG and/or Runstats would be much easier to operate if the set of tables to be processed could be selected by means of wildcarding. The wildcarding should be enabled on...

Allow a WHERE clause for ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to delete data while moving a table

One of the most painful things to do is to delete a huge amount of data. One workaround for this is to export the data needed and then LOAD/REPLACE back into the same table, but this requires an outage of the table to accomplish. If a WHERE clause...

timeout option for log archiving sessions / db2vend on WINDOWS

We work with DB2 on WINDOWS and an external vendor (EMC Networker) for backups and archive logging. If network or the vendor have a problem, the archive logging forever tries to use the vendor process and in the meantime writes to a FAILARCHPATH o...

Perform rebuild of each index (for a table) in its own transaction

In the current design, all the index rebuilds for a table are performed within the same transaction (as the action that triggered them). If the transaction is interrupted (e.g. user interrupt or dropped session), then the entire transaction is rol...
