Static SQL presents special issues for Optimization (different from Dynamic!) To manage the few (but significant) DB2 access paths that perform badly, DST relies on an "SQL Repository", integrating per-SQL performance data with package TEXT and EXPLAIN. This enables a meaningful access path switch report for REBINDs. Longer-term, we are escalating persistent issues such as range predicates and "unstable" access paths.
