F08 - DB2 for z/OS Distributed Access - Best Practices and Updates

Topic: Cross Platform DB2 for z/OS & LUW

Subtopic: 2015

Come and learn the best practices and updates to Distributed Access on DB2 for z/OS 10 and DB2 11. As distributed environments become more complicated and important your organization needs a methodology for adjusting timeouts and other thresholds for high availability. We will go over the recommended driver and server configurations for workload balancing, high availability, and client reroute in a Data Sharing or non-Data Sharing environment. You will be exposed to new DB2 commands that can be used to dynamically add and remove members from a subset thus influencing the target members used to service specific applications, without taking a DB2 or DDF outage. We will also discuss improvements to DDF cancel thread, distributed correlation, location stats, and how to tune the system parameters based on this information. There will be some discussion on identifying these distributed threads as well.
