Agenda for December 14, 2016
8:30-9:00 Breakfast & Announcements
Sponsored By IBM

9:00-10:15 "DB2 for z/OS Distributed Access - In the Mobile Age "
Presenter: Adrian Burke, IBM
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 recent customer incidents that could have been avoided with the correct proactive driver/server settings. We will also discuss improvements to DDF cancel thread, location stats, and how to positively identify these distributed threads for problem determination.

10:15-10:30 Break

10:30-11:45 "Avoiding L2 Performance PMRs"
Presenter: Adrian Burke, IBM
Root cause analysis of presumed, or actually DB2 performance issues can be quite tricky in today's diverse environments. Everything from CEC capacity, LPAR utilization, real/virtual storage, WLM settings, PARMLIB members, and DB2 parameters can play a part in performance degradation. Wouldn't it be nice if there were some tools (no-charge ones at that) which could quickly guide you in the direction of the root cause? Not just in text format but with graphs and trending lines that can visually depict the bottleneck and help educate management and colleagues. Many man hours have been wasted studying the effects of a system slowdown. This presentation will walk through a methodology for avoiding these issues.
