  • Server-based licensing for distribution to unlimited users
  • The most rapid path in the industry to providing controlled, direct data operations upon DB2 tables from within Windows, Java-based workstations, or Web browsers

DB2 High Performance Unload

DB2 High Performance Unload really can make a difference to your unload management tasks. DB2 High Performance Unload offers sequential reading and accessing of your DB2 data at top speed. It can scan a tablespace and create output files in the format you need them. The major capabilities provided are:

  • High speed unloads of DB2 data using native VSAM
  • Ability to unload from image copies as well as active tables
  • Multiple output files during a single unload with minimal additional cost
  • Multiple output formats, including the opportunity to tailor your own
  • Comprehensive and powerful SELECT statement
  • More efficient unloads of DB2 data
  • Help with batch windows constraints
  • Ability to unload multiple tables each to a separate file or a single table many times

DB2 Object Restore

IBM DB2 Object Restore can automatically restore previously dropped objects and all related dependencies. DB2 Object Restore is superior to certain other tools that are available in the marketplace since DB2 Object Restore eliminates the need for a duplicate shadow copy of the catalog to recover objects. This means that DB2 Object Restore saves DASD space. With DB2 Object Restore you can have confidence in cleaning up your DB2 system since you can now restore discarded DB2 objects.

DB2 Log Analysis Tool

IBM DB2 Log Analysis Tool provides the DB2 administrator with a powerful tool to ensure high availability and complete control over data integrity. It allows you to monitor data changes at a glance by providing the facilities to:

  • Automatically build reports of changes made to database tables
  • Specify reports by various database resource criteria such as date, user, or table
  • Quickly isolate accidental or undesired changes to your database tables
  • Avoid the processing overhead often associated with data change monitoring
  • Heighten confidence in data integrity while keeping DB2 for OS/390 systems at optimal efficiency
  • Maximize uptime for e-business availability

IMS Advanced ACB Generator

IMS Advanced ACB Generator is a functional replacement for the IMS-provided ACBGEN utility. It combines a number of features and functions to help you manage your IMS ACB libraries more effectively in addition to providing a high speed generation process. The high speed characteristics become more significant when processing large volumes of IMS ACBs. The more PSBs that are gen'ed, the greater the time reduction.

The Advanced ACB Generator reports information in a tabular format rather than the prose format used by the IMS utility. The more PSBs and DBDs generated, the more significant this method becomes. It lends itself to quickly desk checking results and ensuring all PSBs and DBDs you expect to process, have been processed. Consolidating what often is a massive amount of output into a few easy to read and check pages can be a huge productivity boost by itself.

IMS Database Repair Facility

IMS Database Repair Facility is a powerful tool to interactively repair VSAM and OSAM organized IMS databases containing pointer or data errors. The product's interactive capabilities let you make the repair in a short time, which means that the affected database need be taken off-line only for a brief period. IMS Database Repair Facility features both VSAM and OSAM pointer repair, pointer navigation, and a backout safety feature. Driven by an ISPF front-end, this tool is a powerful addition to any System Programmer or DBA workbench.

IMS ETO Support

IMS ETO Support provides a front-end to the IMS Extended Terminal Option (ETO) feature, providing capabilities to help manage, implement, customize, and exploit the benefits of ETO in your systems environment.

The IMS ETO feature allows terminals, printers, and LTERMs to be added to the system dynamically, reducing the need for IMSGENs, which can improve IMS availability. IMS ETO Support provides features that allow for the easy tailoring and customization of the IMS ETO feature to your specific environment. Once implemented, ETO Support helps you manage those resources in a more effective, dynamic way.

IMS Fast Path Basic Tools

IMS Fast Path Basic Tools can help you analyze, maintain, tune, and migrate IMS Fast Path DEDB databases without bringing up an IMS online system environment. This powerful package is the successor of the three DEDB components of IMS Data Base Tools Version 2 Release 3 (DEDB Pointer Checker, DEDB Tuning Aid, and DEDB Unload/Reload) and includes the following new features and functions.

Both DEDB Pointer Checker and DEDB Unload/Reload utilities now establish a DBRC interface with which these utilities can distinguish multiple area data sets and the concurrent usage environment of the DEDB area by IMS online systems, and can allocate area data to one or more area data sets dynamically. This new enhancement improves the integrity of an area being processed, especially those processed by the DEDB Unload utility. The DEDB Reload utility can now notify DBRC with the result of the reload operation to change the status of the area in DBRC RECON data sets, just like the IMS Fast Path DEDB Initialization utility.

In addition, DEDB Unload/Reload utilities support Sequential Dependent (SDEP) segments. They also support a user exit by which segment data can be manipulated. A new format of the unloaded segment record can be optionally selected to reduce the volume of an unloaded segment data set.

The DEDB Unload/Reload component provides several new utilities that:

  • Produce a DEDB Data Base Definition Record from a DMB member in the ACB library without rerunning the DEDB Unload utility when the data set is lost.
  • Provide application interfaces to produce or retrieve unloaded segment records. With the interfaces, the application program need not care about the format of the record, or I/O operation of the data set.
  • Convert DEDB unloaded segment records to HDAM ones and vice versa.

In summary, the IMS Fast Path Basic Tools package provides DEDB Unload/Reload, Tuning Aid, and Pointer Checker utilities that have been enhanced to provide:

  • DEDB Pointer Checker
    • MADS support using DBRC RECON information
    • Area data set dynamic allocation
    • DEDB Pointer Checker
  • DEDB Unload/ Reload
    • MADS support using DBRC RECON information
    • SDEP segment support
    • Area data set dynamic allocation
    • Improved format of DEDB unloaded segment record
    • User exit
    • Application interface to produce or retrieve unloaded segment records
    • The ability to convert DEDB unloaded segment records to HDAM database segment records and vice versa
    • Randomizing module interface supporting up to 16 different DEDB databases

IMS Fast Path Online Tools

IMS Fast Path Online Tools are the perfect extension to the IMS Fast Path Basic Tools. This new product contains:

  • DEDB Online Pointer Checker
  • DEDB Online Data Extract

The DEDB Online Pointer Checker functions as an online interface to the IMS Fast Path Tools DEDB Pointer Checker and DEDB Tuning Aid. It will access the DEDB area dataset online using Fast Path utility services. The output of this utility will be a set of sequential files which are input into DEDB Pointer Checker/Tuning Aid. Online Pointer Checker provides the following:

  • A summary report of pointer errors found
  • An option to produce a snap listing of CIs found to be in error
  • An option to take an Image Copy during execution, which will be similar to the IMS Concurrent Image copy
  • DBRC notification of the image copy
  • Dual Image Copy output datasets

DEDB Online Data Extract provides IMS DEDB users with an easy-to-use, flexible tool to extract data from a DEDB area, while the area is online. The product functions in read-only mode, and uses locking protocols to ensure a consistent view of the data.

The specification of which segments to extract will allow comparisons of data offset into a segment against supplied values; more than one comparison per segment type is supported and the ability to write a subset of the matching segment's data to the output file is supported.

DEDB Online Data Extract uses standard IMS data access techniques which ensure it will function correctly with all DEDB facilities, including datasharing, MADS, VSO, Shared VSO, EQE, and IMS V7 EEQE support. DEDB Online Data Extract can optionally write output data in a format compatible with the IMS Fast Path Basic Tools Reload utility.

This powerful utility can be used:

  • To satisfy data reporting requirements
  • To extract data to populate test databases
  • As an alternative to writing a customized BMP application program

IMS Hardware Data Compression — Extended

IMS Hardware Data Compression — Extended exploits OS/390 hardware data compression (HDC) and can help you take advantage of this feature to compress HDAM, HIDAM, HISAM, and Fast Path databases.

IMS HDC Compression — Extended functions can help you:

  • Analyze what compression savings are possible before creating a dictionary
  • Determine what compression savings the generic dictionary supplied with the product could provide
  • Determine what compression savings an existing custom dictionary could provide if used on a database other than the one from which it was created
  • Evaluate compression savings by segment and understand the distribution of compressed segment lengths (to help you prepare a DBD for reloading a database and minimizing VSAM control interval [CI] splits)
  • Create a dictionary and a compression exit routine, and reload DBD in preparation for implementing data compression

IMS High Performance Load

IMS High Performance Load consists of the following two utilities to support high performance reorganization reload procedures of IMS HD organized databases:

  • High Performance Load
  • Physical Sequence Sort for Reload

These two utilities support reorganization reloading of IMS HD organization databases including not only HDAM and HIDAM, but also PHDAM and PHIDAM introduced by IMS Version 7.

IMS Version 7 support including HALDB includes functions providing:

  • Reloading of PHDAM and PHIDAM databases
  • Support of logical relationships and secondary indexing of HALDB implemented with Extended Pointer Set (EPS) and Indirect List Data Set (ILDS)
  • Dynamic allocation of partition data sets using data set information in the DBRC RECON data set's DBRC support
  • A high performance alternative of the IMS Partition Initialization utility
  • Support of the migration reload to HALDB and the reorganization reload after a partition definition change
  • Simulation and reporting of HD randomization parameter changes for each partition and partition selection parameter changes for HALDB to determine the best value

IMS High Performance Load provides parameter optimization for high performance processing and ease of use.

IMS High Performance Pointer Checker

IMS High Performance Pointer Checker is a must for most database reorganization activities. Used on a regular basis, it can help you ensure your database pointers are error free and alert you to the need to perform a database reorganization. The utility also provides information to assist in the analysis of a corrupt database, thereby helping to reduce the diagnostic and repair time spent by programmers analyzing the problem. Used in conjunction with the IMS Database Repair Facility, this is a powerful set of productivity aids for any IMS operation.

IMS High Performance Pointer Checker reports space utilization, and detects and reports physical and logical direct pointer problems in HDAM, HIDAM, HISAM, HIDAM index, and secondary index databases. These reports pinpoint both the errors and their locations within the database. Also generated are a number of reports useful for tuning. In summary, IMS High Performance Pointer Checker:

  • Can help detect database pointer errors.
  • Reports location and type of error.
  • Provides reports and block dumps to aid in analysis.
  • Provides database statistics.
  • Collects data for analysis and report by other utilities included in this package. These include:
    • HD Tuning Aid
    • Space Monitor
    • Database Historical Data Analyzer

Note: New function eliminating PSB generation requirement is not supported in the IMS Version 5 environment.

IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution

IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution performs the same function as the IMS Prefix Resolution utility (DFSURG10). Prefix resolution is a required step for resolving pointers for databases containing logical relationships and for creating or recreating secondary indices. Elapsed time is considerably shorter for IMS High Performance Prefix Resolution since this utility utilizes IBM BatchPipes® to eliminate the intermediate Work File 2 (WF2) data set. This feature helps avoid much of the I/O, tape handling, and DASD requirements often associated with prefix resolution.

IMS High Performance Unload

IMS High Performance Unload provides high performance unloading function for IMS HD databases including PHDAM and PHIDAM introduced by IMS Version 7. High Performance Unload is a follow-on product of IMS System Utilities/Data Base Tools (DBT) Version 2 High Speed Sequential Retrieval (HSSR) and provides the full compatibility with JCL written for DBT Version 2 HSSR.

High Performance Unload offers the following features and more:

  • Support of HALDB of IMS Version 7, which includes:
    • Unloading of a partition, a sequence of partitions, or the whole partitions of a PHDAM or PHIDAM database
    • Support of DBRC
    • Dynamic allocation of partition data sets using data set information in the DBRC RECON data sets
    • Support of the migration unload to HALDB and fallback unload from HALDB
  • Fast segment retrieval from a database:
    • High performance buffer handler
    • Automatic tuning of buffer handler parameters
  • High performance unload utilities with a user exit facility for additional segment processing
  • Application programming interface for high performance sequential reading of databases
  • Dynamic allocation of database data sets for HDAM, HIDAM, HISAM, and SHISAM databases
  • Database statistics report useful for database tuning

IMS Index Builder

IMS Index Builder can help you simplify index recovery and maintenance, reduce index maintenance time, and eliminate the need to image copy index databases. IMS Index Builder provides an easy-to-use, one-step procedure for the maintenance of both primary and secondary indexes. This powerful utility includes:

  • One-step operation capable of generating multiple secondary indexes
  • DBRC notification support
  • Secondary index and HIDAM primary index support
  • Option to directly scan the target database or use the DFSURWF1 data set
  • Ability to split the DFSURWF1 data set for more effective downstream processing by prefix resolution utilities
  • Support to initialize an empty secondary index
  • Support to create secondary indexes without doing a database reorganization

IMS Index Builder Version 2 provides full support for IMS Version 7 High Availability Database (HALDB) and provides DBRC support. If you have indexes, you can benefit from this robust product.

IMS Library Management Utilities

IMS Library Management Utilities help manage IMS ACB, PSB, and DBD libraries. The utilities included are:

  • DBD/PSB/ACB Compare

    This utility reports the differences between DBDs, PSBs, or ACBs having the same name, but residing in separate libraries. It can be used to ensure that DBDs, PSBs, or ACBs that have the same name are defined by the same generation macro statements.

  • DBD/PSB/ACB Mapper

    This utility produces pictorial layouts of IMS physical and logical databases. These maps, which are produced as a printed listing, graphically represent the structure and characteristics of IMS.

  • DBD/PSB/ACB Reversal

    This utility converts the DBD/PSB control blocks back into IMS DBDGEN/PSBGEN utility control statements. Optionally, this utility can produce the needed SYSIN statements for the DBD/PSB/ACB Mapper. A number of reports are also generated describing member information such as DBD/PSB organization, processing options, and the relationship among its members.

The utilities in this product are supported for IMS Versions 5, 6, and 7.

IMS Sequential Randomizer Generator

IMS Sequential Randomizer Generator creates a randomizer that enables the user to access HDAM and DEDB database segments either directly or sequentially. Using this technique, HDAM and DEDB databases can be accessed in logical key sequence without sacrificing their efficient direct access capabilities.

IMS Sequential Randomizer Generator also optimizes the distribution of database records by adjusting the randomizing module if the number of synonyms or the control interval (CI)/block utilization exceeds the user-specified value. This product can help you make better, more effective use of your HDAM and DEDB databases.

Customization Options: Select the appropriate feature numbers to customize your order with delivery options desired. These features can be specified on the initial or MES orders.

Example: If publications are not desired for the initial order, specify feature number 3470 to ship media only. For future updates, specify feature number 3480 to ship media updates only. If, in the future, publication updates are required, order an MES to remove feature number 3480; then, the publications will ship with the next release of the program.
