The 1990s saw a lot of movement towards decentralization and distributed systems. Servers, databases and applications started springing all over. This put the scalability of system administrators, DBAs, programmers, etc to test. Consequently over the past few years now, we are seeing the reversal of de-centralization -viz. consolidation and virtualization. Increasingly over time, scalability of the human factor is becoming critical since it is one of the most expensive resources. In the past, where a few tens of databases was considered the limit of managability for a DBA, we are now seeing that limit stretched to a few hundred databases.DB2 autonomics is a set of features and functionality that either aid in or takeover some of the day-to-day and mundane tasks of a DBA allowing him to manage more databases reliably, effectively, efficiently and consistently.In this presentation, we will look into the various autonomic features of DB2 LUW and provide some best practices.
