SPEAKERS: Robert Vargo (Progressive Insurance)

This presentation will describe the numerous DB2 tools that have been written at Progressive Insurance. These tools enable us to manage our large and diverse DB2 workload. In addition, the presentation will detail methods that the members of the audience can employ to transfer these ideas to their own organizations. We will cover the basic framework that we have used to construct all of the tools. The tools that will be discussed will include a Call Attach replacement, a DBM1 storage monitor, a latch contention monitor, various "thread killer" utilities, a method to create DB2 IFI metadata, and a WLM boost technique.
