Set Special Registers with profile tables for local applications
It would be nice to set the current explain mode (special register) with the help of profile tables (dsn_profile_table & dsn_profile_attributes) for local applications. In our case it's CICS. At the moment it's only possible for remote applications.
-- example insert in profile table.
insert into sysibm.dsn_profile_table
('cicsid', 1, 'Y');
insert into sysibm.dsn_profile_attributes
(1,'SPECIAL_REGISTER','SET CURRENT EXPLAIN MODE = YES');
-> After a restart of the profile all dynamic SQL running under 'cicsid' would be explained in the explain tables. (e.g. plan_table, dsn_statement_cache_table,...)
