First Presentation Overview

Understanding Application Performance Issues before they enter the Mainframe

Networked applications add an increased level of difficulty in determining which components of an application may be causing performance issues or outrages. We will go over various networked components that front-end mainframe data stores. We will also go through a number of triages showing how problems are determined in a reactive fashion and the preferred proactive fashion.

Second Presentation Overview

Trilogy of DB2s Originating Address Spaces

DB2 SQL executes within three main DB2 address spaces, SSAS, DBAS and IRLM. To measure and see how it performs, we need to capture its activity from its "originating" address spaces. These vary depending on the source of SQL, making a trilogy. Let's see what they are and how they work. With a good methodology, we can "tune" any of them.
