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...

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...

Db2 connect driver support

Db2 connect drivers should be supported with DVM IDF. This will be helpful when we want to join any data source with DB2 and then access it through IBM products like Data studio etc.

Enable DVM refresh via REST call

We run a signal DVM over multiple LPARs in some high availability environments. When new maps are imported into the share dataset, the LPARs that were not the target of the import need to be refreshed. If we use a REST call for the import, we need...

Enhance server to support parallelism for “UNION ALL” using the MRC capability.

UNION ALL of 2 or more Db2 subsystems uses a lot of memory

Enhance server to check for “UNION ALL” and skip buffering, allowing the data to flow back to client

Support the ability for the JDBC Application name to be passed through TOR to PEER

We currently have a need to use the JDBC Application name to set schema values on virtual tables pointing to Db2 tables. This works fine for a single DVM, but when we have a DVM-to-DVM (TOR-to-PEER) situation, the application name is not being pas...

DVM Inserts into SQL DateTime2 column

Inserts into Datetime2 datatype column is not supported via DVM. APAR number PH34676 has been opened for this. Opening this AHa icket to track APAR.

Allow for the creation of UDTF without the cross memory constraint to Db2

Currently when I attempt to create a UDTF, I must have a Db2 subsystem defined to DVM that is running on the same LPAR and it cannot be a data-sharing Db2 behind a DVIPA. Step one would be to eliminate the need for a Db2 subsystem to be selected i...

DVM Query Optimization Utility tool

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 ...
