As more of our users begin to move portions of their application and data to public and private cloud environments, we are seeing an increased desire to present a complete picture of the data across mainframe and distributed platforms. Adding AWS ...
Use Data Stage data map as input to DVM Virtual Table definition
Currently Data Stage users who want to use DVM, must convert the Data Stage metadata maps to COBOL copybooks to be used when defining a DVM virtual table. It would be more efficient to the user to use the Data Stage metadata map as input to the DV...
We would like the IDAA Loader to be able to exploit RMF online VSAM datasets like with other SMF records i.e. SMF type 70. This way we could easily analyze LPAR performance from the last hours in shorter intervals than from SMF records. A similar ...
Exploit the data that RMF is generating in online mode
GISS wants to exploit the data that RMF is generating in online mode, that is, to exploit the data that RMF is holding online. Probably an easy way is to access the VSAM file where RMF keeps the data, but we don’t know the record layout. We see th...
Enable instances of a virtual table using a PSB/PCB using a PROCSEQ to use an alternate index (non-root)
Per IBM instances of a virtual table using a PSB/PCB using a PROCSEQ to use an alternate index are only supported for indexes on the ROOT segment. This severely impacts performance for DVM access to IMS data which performs well via IMS using secon...
Allow for a project view in Studio that only shows maps for a specific user and interfaces with both SCM and DVM servers.
The current Server tab shows all maps for a given DVM subsystem. The main premise of this Aha is that developers typically have a view within an IDE that contains just their project code (linked to their software configuration management system). ...
Enable HTTPS access to the JDBC Gateway admin console via key ring
JGate was most recently enhanced to allow secure access by adding a keystore and password to the startServer script. While functional, this is a security exposure. We would like to use a RACF key ring instead.
The SQL Select statement used to define a virtual table or virtual view can be a complex one with multiple levels of JOIN operators, predicates and SQL special functions nested together. It will be handy for developers to have a utility tool that ...
Enable DVM Studio to be able to quickly capture environment data needed for problem resolution
We are sometimes asked to provide detailed information for a Case we have opened on DVM. Information includes the current build, IN00, trace browse, map definitions and sometimes the underlying data that is causing the issue. If functionality was ...
Validate SQL should simply validate whether the SQL is valid to execute
Currently, while in editing SQL in DVM Studio, you can highlight the SQL and choose "Validate SQL". This option will run the same logic used when creating a view and flag, for example, duplicate column names as an error. In this case the flagged S...
