Automate restart of IIDR tasks when RRS terminates

We had issues with RRS recently which were solved via a maintenance cycle. During those issues, our IIDR Capture and Apply tasks failed and required manual restart. We have the option TERM=N enabled yet the Capture/Apply tasks were not restarted w...

ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE not detected by IIDR QREP or CDC

If 'ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE' is executed against a table that is actively replicating, any changes made to the source data will not be captured or replicated until ‘ALTER table DATA CAPTURE CHANGES' is executed. This would cause the target...

Encrypted Emails from ASNMON on Z

In our replication environment ASNMON is running on Z to monitor Q Replication processes on a significant number of Z systems. In case ASNMON records an exception, ASNMON sends emails to admin accounts. The mail server team generally requires encr...

Requesting Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal to Temporal Table

This RFE/Idea is to request Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal source to Temporal Table target. The existing Q-Replication only supports from Temporal to Temporal tables. For reporting within FTM (Financial Transaction Manager), there is a...

The Q-Replication apply programm shall be able to call the Db2 High Performance Unload (HPU) utility by the HPU stored procedure

Hello, in enterprise warehouse and OLTP areas of DB2 installations exist often very big databases with several tera bytes (often 100 of TBs) of data. For example we have several OLTP databases with more than 20TB and tables with billion of recor...

ASNMON improvements on z/OS

In a customer that has installed Q Replication, I've been working in deploy ASNMON task on z/OS side as replacement of IBM Infosphere Data Replication Dashboard tool that was deprecated. The ASN.IBMSNAP_CONDITIONS tables is used to configure the a...

Q-Replication Apply program shall be able to recognize if a column-organized table contains already a dictionary

Hello, the current implementation of the Q-Replication apply program for an automatic LOAD operation on column-organized target tables does not recognize if a dictionary already exist. A column compression dictionary is used to compress data...

LOAD should not be restarted when Apply fails during SET INTEGRITY

When setting up Replication for a DB2 Table for the first time Apply will use a LOAD FROM Cursor to do an initial copy of the tables data. If there are constraints or generated columns defined for that table Apply will issue a SET INTEGRITY comman...

Db2 LUW - SQL replication should optionally use TRUNCATE when performing a Full Refresh of large tables

Db2 LUW SQL Replication (10.2.1) When you run a Full Refresh of a subscription set, the asnapply utility issues a DELETE FROM <target table> prior to the refresh of the data. For large tables this has a significant and unnecessary overhead...

Prompt customer need to reduce prune interval

In a busy Q Rep env with many bi-di Q subs, there may lots of P2PNORECAPTURE signal insert into IBMQREP_SIGNAL control table by Q Apply program. As per design, Q Capture delete up to 10000 rows at a time for one prune interval. When the average P2...
