Enhance automatic SORTHEAP management by fixing the defined base value as the minimum for STMM

As we had an issue with STMM reducing the SORTHEAP too much during lower load on the database, we would like to see the defined base value for the sortheap treated as the minimum value, that STMM would not reduce the sortheap below that value if t...

Improve Standby Replay Performance

In our environment, the replay on the standy database is not able to keep up with the speed at which the PRIMARY is able to process data. Our replay gaps often exceed 100 GB, and this means that any failover would be delayed. We use HADR for high ...

automatically activate a database when DB2 LUW is started

Full support for aggregate function with DISTINCT in OLAP SPECIFICATION

Use of DISTINCT with e.g. COUNT function in OLAP specification (PARTITION BY clause) returns error SQL0441N (SQLCODE -441). Due to the fact that Db2 does NOT support the use of DISTINCT option in such cases, we have a major impact with COGNOS gene...
