The Good, the Bad, and the Really Ugly: DSNZPARM (I09)

SPEAKERS: William Favero (IBM DB2 for z/OS Information Management Consulting)

It seems more articles attempt to introduce the DB2 community to a favorite DSNZPARM. This can turn into the classical "good new, bad news" joke. This presentation examines the "truth" about those hidden, not so hidden (opaque), and completely exposed DSNZPARMs. It will discuss which parameters can be safely changed to enhance your DB2’s behavior and which parameters you are better off just leaving alone. If you give this presentation a listen, you will leave with the ability to separate the facts from the fiction the next time someone speaks ZPARM to you.
