The Fillmore Group is presenting a webinar at 1pm Eastern today on
the “best of” 2019 replication enhancements, one of
which is Db2 for z Remote Capture (which allows you deploy
replication off the mainframe, saving the system resources and
their associated costs) and another is around IBM’s CDC Kafka
target. Info on the webinar is on our blog at
. Both presenters – Ed Lynch and Frank Fillmore – have
worked with a large financial customers to implement and tune
replication – I am sure they will welcome your questions
– hope you can make it.

Subject: [DB2-L] - O/T: DB2 z/OS data replication, CDC and Attunity
Does anybody have any experiences they're willing / able to share
of Attunity's or IBM's products for data replication, with DB2 on
z/OS as the source (and Kafka as the target)?
Some topics of concern to us are:
* The initial set-up time i.e. copying data from the source tables
where there are billions of rows involved. Are there any issues
with locking in the source tables? We're talking a 24x7 banking
environment, so performance is critical.
* The effects of re-compressing the DB2 data during Reorgs. Does
this mean having to re-build the Attunity / IBM "copy" of the
* Any adverse effects on DB2 logging?
