Create join indexes in DB2

Enable to create a join index like SYBASE.. Note that it could be great to join row stored tables with column stored tables.

Restore with a new table name

Add a new feature to allow to restore tablespaces with new names of tablespaces and tables

Aggregate activity monitor

Add a table to the activity monitor for aggregating the data by statement text or section

ADMIN_TAB_INFO is sloooow and this has been the case for quite sometiome.

Extremely slow when used in a RP environment. Also used by check_upgrade which takes 7+ hours to run. Environment has 2million+ objects, 1 range per day for 3 years. Check_upgrade may be calling check for load pending which used admin_tab_info

RP Tables syntax

If the “INDEX IN” option is left off the index goes in the default TSP. There is no way to change this later

XMLPATH use of global index and s/b local RP index

Was required to rebuild the global index as part of recovery and it took 24+ hours. Should be using a local index

BAR Rebuild support for historical RP

Need ability to bring back only the active RPs then eventually the inactive RPs in a large DPF environment – 60+ nodes

built in or external audit utility for Referential TSs

Many problems attempt recovery due to MRT issues with referential table and/or table with parts in multiple table spaces. Need tool to state which table spaces must be recovered together due to relationships. This should be done at backup time aut...

Migration from SMS/Raw to AS

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!

HA for DB2/DPF using disk replication

Many challenges with node recovery. Current BP is to reboot all nodes in the cluster if any one fails. Many cases where db2 agent hangs on restart and requires a node reboot. Would prefer to see disk replication used for HA
