We all would agree that the DB2 logging facility is a vital part of DB2 andDB2 recovery. It produces information rich data which can also be exploited in many functions other than that hoped "Never" for recovery. In this Technical presentation I intend to cover the Features and functions of the CA LOG ANALYZER product and their many uses in working with DB2 Logging Datain Recovery to Replication Auditing to AnalysisTopics Covered1) The Analysis and management of DB2 active and archive log data sets, image copies, and bootstrap data sets (BSDS).2) Generating complete DB2 recovery information in an easy-to-read format using detailed audit and exception reports.3) Generating SQL UNDO/REDO DataThe UNDO feature can generate SQL to undo unacceptable changes to data.The REDO feature lets you redo changes on multiple subsystems.This is a fast and easy way to propagate changes from one DB2 subsystem to another DB2 subsystem or to another relational database management system or Datawarehouse system.4) The comprehensive reporting facilities to make log analysis easy. 5) Review the Data wizards available for generating reports easily. 6) look indepth at using CA LOG ANALYZER as a tool to aid with your Auditing requirements using the The SMF Audit Trace Reporting facility
