Antwort: [DB2-L] Real Time Statistics Informational APAR and CPU usage
Hi Max

>Good morning/afternoon/evening esteemed listers

exception, so's life, and my bosses would agree as well - OK you can

>I searched for fixes for RTS and I found a lot of them so I was wondering
if there's an Informational APAR for RST like the APAR II13767 for LOBs.Is there such APAR ?

Nope, you have to find 'em yourself!

>I'm planning to activate RTS in out test env to check how much cpu usage
so the other classic question: how much CPU do RTS eat ? This question was
posted in the past but I'd like to have some >recent values, if any.

I have not been able to measure it so I guess pretty low!

>I read in some post that some users are happily using RTS, other aren't
using them. For people using RTS, are they useful to cut CPU usage due to
RUNSTATS utility (if knew) ? Any particular issue >with storage (I saw
many PTFs dealing with storage) ? We aren't in data sharing .

Yep, it's the old answer "It depends", for me RTS is fantasic however if
you distrust non-catalog data then it is not for you (Wait for 9 when it
is integrated in the catalog!)

>Last question: a good hair shampoo ? Ok you can skip this
question......I'm bald.

OK, skipped!
