Overview

DB2® High Performance Unload (HPU) for Multiplatforms, V2.2 and DB2 HPU for Workgroups, V2.2 are high-speed tools for unloading, extracting, and repartitioning data from DB2 databases on Linux™, UNIX®, and Microsoft™ Windows™. DB2 HPU helps reduce the maintenance window through shorter elapsed time operations and new capabilities.

DB2 HPU can extract tables from full, offline backups including backups of system-managed space (SMS) or database-managed space (DMS) table spaces or backups of the database. For backups of table spaces where a suitable backup of the DB2 catalog exists, DB2 HPU can extract the tables from the backup even if DB2 is down. Version 2.2 also offers new repartitioning capabilities for data redistribution on the same system or for data migration to a new system. High-speed data unloads and splitting can now be done in a single operation, eliminating the use of unnecessary disk space.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer®. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
