This presentation introduces and discusses DB2 for z/OS V8 system
performance monitoring and tuning issues and recommendations. It will
focus on key areas of bufferpool, group bufferpool, lock/latch
contention, system address space CPU and EDM Pool Tuning; identify the
key performance indicators to be monitored; provide rules-of-thumb to be
applied, provide tuning advice for common problems.

DB2 9 for z/OS Migration Planning and Experiences [part I & II]

This presentation will cover deprecated/removed function, new post GA
function to be delivered, planned stability, planning for rebind and
access path change, VSCR, CPU improvement/regression, LRSN spin,
improvements to COPY and RECOVER, object level recovery from system
level backup, reordered row format, etc. In addition, the presentation
will share early customer migration experience. Share lessons learned,
surprises, pitfalls. Will provide hints and tips, address some myths,
provide additional planning information and information on new

DB2 Trends & Directions

This presentation will talk about technology trends and tracks for DB2
for z/OS. It will represent DB2 for z/OS Development's current thinking
on some of the functions and features that are candidates for the next
major release. It is still early in the development process, so the
details will change. The intention is to give you some information on
DB2's future technical directions.

We hope to see you on December 11th for this free educational event.
