Database administration

DB2 Administration Tool for z/OS, V5 (5697-K90) PTF

  • Refer to APAR number PQ96925
  • Available December 31, 2004

Useability enhancements are provided that:

  • Allow greater flexibility and control in specifying non-DB2 utility data set names during RDEF, ALC, and MIG processing. All functions that generate utilities can now use user-specified DB2 V7 TEMPLATEs to allow greater user-control over utility data sets. Also, this enhancement makes it easier to define LISTDEFs and TEMPLATEs. Pseudo-templates are introduced to be used to specify the parameters (data set name, unit, and so on) for non-utility data sets that are created.
  • Add additional object line commands to the database display panels for better ease of use. The additional line commands include the ability to show aliases, packages, plans, triggers, or synonyms from the database display panel.
  • Add a new panel for aliases to show upon which table an alias is defined.
  • Improve the formatting of data definition language (DDL) statements to avoid splitting names and quoted strings in the middle. For easier reading and searching, DDL lines are split at blanks, just after a comma, and not within a quoted string to fit within 72 columns.
  • Enable ALC to automatically detect when the table record length reaches the limit for the table space (bpsize) and prompts you for a new bpsize. After you supply a new bpsize, the table space is modified to the new bpsize.
  • Support a generic error message improvement to display a POPUP window providing more information for certain ISPF service errors.
  • Add a Work Statement List (WSL) Edit command that formats the WSL, places the user in ISPF EDIT of the statements, and if it has changed, the statements are placed back into the WSL.

DB2 Object Comparison Tool for z/OS, V3 (5697-K40) PTF

  • Refer to APAR number PQ96926
  • Must be installed with DB2 Administration Tool for z/OS, V5 (5697-K90) with APAR number PQ96925
  • Available December 31, 2004

Useability enhancements are provided that:

  • Allow greater flexibility and control in specifying non-DB2 utility data set names during the Object Compare processing. All functions that generate utilities can now use user-specified DB2 V7 TEMPLATEs to allow greater user-control over utility data sets. Also, this enhancement makes it easier to define LISTDEFs and TEMPLATEs. Pseudo-templates are introduced here to be used to specify the parameters (data set name, unit, and so on) for non-utility data sets that are created.
  • Give you the option to run Image COPY, RUNSTATS, and REORG, even if it is not mandatory, after an ALTER.
  • Give you the capability to generate a compare of one source to many targets. Since the targets may have different naming standards, separate Masks and Ignores for each of the targets can be specified. One Work Statement List is generated for each target.

IMS Online Reorganization Facility for z/OS (5655-H97) is designed to reorganize databases while they are being accessed and updated within IMS online systems. All database changes are captured and applied while the databases are reorganized. Databases do not need to be taken offline to perform the reorganization.

A minimal single /DBRECOVERY command outage is necessary at the end of the reorganization to alter the database data sets from the shadow names to the original names, and to make any ACB or DMB replacements in the online systems.

IMS Online Reorganization Facility provides a complete set of high availability database reorganization procedures for the following database organization types:

  • Hierarchical Direct Access Method (HDAM)
  • Hierarchical Indexed Direct Access Method (HIDAM)
  • Hierarchical Indexed Sequential Access Method (HISAM)
  • Simple Hierarchical Indexed Sequential Access Method (SHISAM)
  • Partitioned Hierarchical Direct Access Method (PHDAM)
  • Partitioned Hierarchical Indexed Direct Access Method (PHIDAM)

Additionally, IMS Online Reorganization Facility provides the necessary reorganization procedures, including pre-reorganization, unload, reload, prefix resolution, prefix update, secondary index building, and image copy, all in one simple step. It also provides optional pointer checking and ACB and DMB replacements.

When using IMS Online Reorganization Facility:

  • The databases and their data sets must be registered to Database Recovery Control (DBRC).
  • No operator intervention is required.
  • The databases are unavailable for a short period of time, called takeover time, when renaming the shadow data sets.

With the IMS Online Reorganization Facility, you can:

  • Reorganize HISAM, HIDAM, HDAM, and SHISAM databases. The associated index data sets are recreated.
  • Reorganize PHDAM and PHIDAM databases as single partitions.
  • Make selected DBD changes during the reorganization process. The DBD changes are automatically propagated to the participating online systems without launching an online change.
  • Predefine the period when takeover time occurs. You can specify a time window for bringing the newly reorganized database online.
  • Automatically create the shadow data sets:
    • SMS allocation uses the same SMS constructs.
    • Non-SMS allocation uses the same volume serial.
    • You can predefine the shadow data sets.
  • Allow a user exit during reload. The exit is also called to process the changes.

Information integration

DB2 Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for CA-IDMS, V8.2 (5655-N56) makes it easy to link data events with business processes. It captures database changes to CA-IDMS by:

  • Reading the active or recovery log
  • Formatting the changes into relational XML messages
  • Publishing the changes to WebSphere® MQ for z/OS

Any application or service that integrates either with WebSphere MQ directly or supports Java™ Message Service (JMS) can asynchronously receive the data changes as they occur.

DB2 Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for CA-IDMS enables database events to initiate business processes. For example, a change in an inventory value could be used to drive a product restocking workflow or the addition of a new customer could initiate welcome e-mail, credit verification, and accounting update. This creates an application-independent, loosely coupled integration that is more adaptable to changing application environments. For example, while multiple applications may impact the value of the inventory level, a single point of integration (the data items) is driving the workflow. Changes to the applications that impact the inventory level can be made with no impact on the event driven integration. Business can realize faster time to market, based on integration that captures the event in a single location, is more stable, and easier to maintain.

Additionally, DB2 Information Integrator Classic Event Publisher for CA-IDMS can deliver changes to Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) tools, or custom-built processes for updating operational data stores, or data warehouses minimizing bandwidth requirements, keeping target databases more closely in sync. Thus, businesses can utilize information that is far more current for tactical and operational decision-making.

Recovery management

DB2 Archive Log Accelerator for z/OS, V2.2 (5697-I73) :

  • Reduces storage and I/O requirements for managing large-volume DB2 archive logs
  • Makes Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem (DFSMS) hardware compression available to DB2 archive logs to accelerate DB2 data recovery
  • Enables archive logs to be striped to enable faster writing and reading of archive logs and accelerate archive log offload processing
  • Conserves valuable storage space by optimizing DFSMS compressed archive logs to further reduce their size
  • Provides a hardware compression modeling tool to help determine the compression options that best suit your needs
  • Offers more innovative archive log management options in a single, affordable package

Maintaining archive logs is an essential part of data management. Archive logs provide the protection required to recover from all types of disasters, both data and hardware driven. However, archive logs can create storage problems because they require a considerable amount of space. While it is possible to store archive logs on tape, recovering the logs can be time consuming, especially when waiting for devices or volumes to become available.

DB2 Archive Log Accelerator V2.2 reduces the overhead of managing archive logs and removes these barriers to database growth and availability by providing key capabilities not available with ordinary archive log management tools, such as:

  • Data striping, for faster throughput of log volumes
  • DFSMS compression, providing hardware- or software-based compression log volumes
  • Optimized DFSMS compression for maximum storage savings
  • Comparison of compression techniques
  • Readability of DFSMS compressed logs through DB2 Log Analysis Tool, DB2 Change Accumulation Tool, DSN1LOGP, and other tools and utilities

DB2 Archive Log Accelerator provides DB2 archive log operations with the data access methods necessary to support extended format data sets, thus enabling archive logs to be compressed or striped using DFSMS. DBAs and system administrators can then transparently exploit and benefit from advanced archive log processing techniques automatically, including:

  • DFSMS/MVS® Dictionary Building Block (DBB) compression with sequential and VSAM KSDS compressed format data sets
  • DFSMS/MVS tailored compression
  • Direct analysis of DFSMS compressed logs with DB2 Log Analysis Tool, eliminating the need to uncompress logs before using analysis or the many other DB2 Log Analysis Tool functions
  • Use of archive log compression for DB2 databases that are members of data sharing groups
  • Leveraging DASD storage of compressed archive logs for maximum availability

After installation, and defining archive logs as extended format data sets, DB2 Archive Log Accelerator's storage and throughput capabilities become a transparent part of archive log management operations. No operator intervention is required. With read/write, operations succeed for new formats where they would have failed previously without DB2 Archive Log Accelerator.

In summary, DB2 Archive Log Accelerator is an essential advancement in the management and storage of enterprise data. It accelerates DB2 data recovery and archive log offload processing while adding additional security to existing DB2 backup and recovery assets at the core of data availability and reliability strategies.

DB2 Log Analysis Tool for z/OS, V2.2 (5655-E56) provides you with a powerful tool to ensure high availability and complete control over data integrity. It allows you to monitor data changes by automatically building reports of changes that are made to database tables.

You can specify reports by various database resource criteria, such as date, user, or table. You can isolate accidental or undesired changes to your database tables. With Log Analysis Tool, you can avoid the processing overhead associated with data change monitoring.

Benefits include:

  • Heightened confidence in data integrity
  • DB2 for z/OS operates at optimal efficiency
  • Maximum uptime for your on demand business availability

You can view data changes by dates, users, tables, and other criteria. Using this filtering process, you can view data, then obtain summary and detail reports that show the original state of the data and its current state, plus other valuable information. From this process, you may institute tighter controls over the data to ensure that it can no longer be compromised.

You can use Log Analysis Tool to perform a redo or undo operation without shutting down the system. Log Analysis Tool generates the SQL, which is sent to a file and can be executed by the DBA's preferred method.

The following enhancements have been made to this release:

Report selection

You can specify which reports you want to generate when processing the log. In previous versions, most of the reports were automatically included in the output of the general and detail report processes. You can now select which reports, if any, you want included in the output. The reports available for selection are:

  • General report
  • Summary report
  • Extended report
  • Transaction ID report (for distributed data information)
  • Detail report

Expert options

Log Analysis Tool has an Expert options field that allows you to override its normal method of determining the proper resources to use when resolving full row images. This is considered running in Expert mode and allows you to force the product to use only the resources that you feel necessary. This is for highly experienced DBAs only because there is no validation of these resources.

Ignore partial recovery points

Log Analysis Tool has an option that ignores the standard product behavior regarding partial recovery points. The standard behavior is to detect these recovery points and bypass them. Much like the Expert options, this gives you control over how the Log Analysis Tool handles partial recovery points. This is another feature for highly experienced DBAs only because the results are unpredictable if the default behavior of the product is changed in this way.

Denote current- and post-row image differences

Log Analysis Tool has been enhanced to denote a change in the current-row image (if available) and the post-row image. The changed column is now displayed with an exclamation point (!) appended to the column name. The detail report has always denoted where the pre-row image differed from the post-row image in an update situation using a pound sign (#) appended to the column name. If the column value changed both as a result of the update, and the current-row image is also different, both of these symbols are displayed (#!). This allows the user to more easily identify where changes have occurred since the DML reported on occurred.

Denote MASS DELETE in Summary report

Log Analysis Tool now includes a column on the summary report identifying that a MASS DELETE occurred in the database. The column has the heading MD. In prior releases there was no easy way to see if a mass delete action occurred.

Current-row images by key

This new feature allows you to obtain the current-row image based on key values for the row in log-forward or log-backward modes. By definition, it requires the table to be uniquely keyed. If it is not, a warning message is issued and no current-row images are provided in log-forward mode, or the physical current-row image is kept in log-backward mode.

Storing quiet times into a table

Log Analysis Tool has always enabled you to detect quiet times in tables. You can now store this information into a DB2 table for future reference. To store quiet times in a table, you must first use Log Analysis Tool to define a DB2 table to be used as the repository of this information.

Parallelism for reading DB2 logs

Log Analysis Tool now provides the ability to process the DB2 logs of members of a data-sharing group in parallel. You can control the degree of parallelism from 1 to 16 (1 meaning no parallelism; 16 meaning 16 possible concurrent subtasks processing 16 member logs). This option is primarily intended to allow for concurrent tape reads of archived logs in a data-sharing environment. Therefore, you may wish to set the degree of parallelism to the maximum number of tape drives you might want the process to use.

Transaction ID support

DB2 can log records supporting information about distributed transactions, if APAR PQ75576 is applied for DB2 V7 or PQ95332 for DB2 V8. With that APAR applied and DB2 performing two-phase commits, records containing information about the end user, transaction ID, accounting string, transaction/application name, and workstation name can be written to DB2 logs. If DB2 writes these records, Log Analysis Tool can now filter and report on them. The filters are considered part of miscellaneous filters, and the reports can be generated from both the general and detail report processes.

URID filter

Log Analysis Tool can now filter on a URID. By entering a starting RBA only, the product interprets this as a URID filter where all log records associated with this unit of recovery (UR) are reported on, and as soon as the commit or abort point for the UR is found, the process is complete.

Customizing headers during LOAD details

This feature provides the capability to customize your standard column headers. You can select which columns you want included and customize their header information rather than accept the full set.

User-specified exclusion of LOAD/LOAD REPLACE

This feature provides the capability to exclude tracking LOAD/LOAD REPLACE type activity. In prior releases, there was no option to suppress processing these actions, and they could be extremely resource-intensive operations.

Fast Apply SQL

This feature provides for the faster application of dynamic SQL by reducing the number of PREPAREs required for all of the SQL statements. When you do not use Fast Apply SQL, the SQL is executed as standard dynamic SQL, (just as if SPUFI was being used), and requires a PREPARE for every SQL statement. Fast Apply SQL eliminates this processing burden.

WHERE clause by key

This feature allows you to have greater control over the generation of WHERE clauses in requested UNDO or REDO SQL. You can now indicate whether to use key columns only, or all of the columns in the table. The normal (default) behavior of Log Analysis Tool is to use key columns only in WHERE clauses.

IMS transaction management

IMS Queue Control Facility for z/OS, V2 (5697-I08) helps you manage IMS message queues in both shared and non-shared queue environments. A new architecture gives you greater flexibility in configuration, additional support of sysplex environments, improved security using SAF/RACF®, and greater product robustness.

The new features and enhancements include:

  • IMS Queue Control Facility for z/OS is updated to use information maintained by IMS Database Recovery Control (DBRC) so that several of the manual functions you perform are now automated. The benefits of adding an IMS Queue Control Facility/DBRC interface are:
    • Automatic checkpoint location

      The specification of an IMS system checkpoint ID is now available through a standard LIST.RECON command output. IMS Queue Control Facility is enhanced to completely automate the selection of an IMS system checkpoint ID.

    • Automatic log selection

      The selection and the dynamic allocation of IMS log data sets is completely automated.

    • Cold queue recovery for IMS/SMQ

      In V1, the cold queue recovery provided the ability to choose whether to requeue or delete messages on the SMQ cold queue. V2 provides an automated solution for making this determination; you can take the proper action to either requeue or delete cold queue messages.

  • The implementation of the SAF/RACF security interface, accepted as a standard for security authorization, brings IMS Queue Control Facility in line with other IBM offerings. It offers three levels of authorization:
    • ACCESS (NONE)
    • ACCESS (READ) in order to LIST/VIEW functions only
    • ACCESS (UPDATE)

    Users at the third level can invoke all IMS Queue Control Facility functions and view the entire content of IMS messages on the queue.

  • IMS Queue Control Facility now provides support for the INCLUDE and EXCLUDE statement of the LOAD function. INCLUDE and EXCLUDE statements specify selection criteria specific to message sources and destinations. INCLUDE and EXCLUDE statements are unrestricted in number. LOAD places messages into one or more message queues (specified by the user) from a data set created by the BROWSE, UNLOAD, RECOVER, or SORTB function.
  • Sysplex support is added.
  • Messages can be requeued between different LTERMs and OTMA.
  • Multiple line commands are accepted in the Display Destination panels.
  • The program conforms to user installation standards for execution libraries.

Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their planned availability, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM eServer zSeries® IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each zSeries IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for customers. For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the "required license capacity." Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offers additional price benefits for customers. The quantity of each zSeries IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as "entitled license capacity." If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a zSeries IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit Pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to VUs or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

For each IBM eServer zSeries® IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the "required license capacity." Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The zSeries IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable Terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full-capacity or sub-capacity

Value Unit Exhibit VUE007

Ordering example: The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected zSeries IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
                              Value                 Value
            MSUs       *      Units/MSU      =      Units
 
Base            3      *      1.00           =        3.00
Tier A         42      *       .45           =       18.90
Tier B        130      *       .36           =       46.80
Tier C        140      *       .27           =       37.80
Tier D      1,185      *       .20           =      237.00
 
Total       1,500                                   343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Example: In the above ordering example, for IMS Online Reorganization Facility for z/OS running on a machine with 1,500 MSUs requiring 344 Value Units, order feature number 0001, quantity 94, and feature number 0002, quantity 1.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

For each zSeries IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the "required license capacity." Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The zSeries IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable Terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full-capacity or sub-capacity

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

Full-capacity mainframes: In cases where full-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Execution-based, z/OS-based, full-machine-based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, refer to The System/370™, System/390®, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901) or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the "parent" program.

Sub-capacity mainframes: In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

Execution-based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPAR(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

z/OS-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable MLC program. This MLC program is called the "parent" program.

Full machine-based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, refer to The System/370, System/390, and zSeries Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901) or visit the "Mainframes" section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

For more information on sub-capacity zSeries IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184 , dated August 10, 2004.

Additional information for products with reference-based terms, zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in environment the zSeries IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single/stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. Customers may have one or more different environments across their enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each zSeries IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment the required license capacity of the zSeries IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  1. That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001 , dated January 13, 1998
  2. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

Sub-capacity eligibility: To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select zSeries IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be zSeries (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems.
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued.
  • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode.

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the zSeries Software Pricing Web site

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement — Attachment for z800 and z890 Software License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract — "Amendment for zSeries Platform Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing" (Z125-6929-02, or higher). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous zSeries IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the utilization of an eligible operating system and machine (for example, z/OS running in z/Architecture [64 bit] mode on a zSeries [or equivalent] server).

On/Off Capacity on Demand

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract — Z125-6611, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand — Software — must be signed prior to use.
