The maximum length in bytes of LOB columns in the SPT01 directory
space that are maintained in the base table. This field corresponds to field

name is SPT01_INLINE_LENGTH in DSN6SPRM.

Update 2
Date of change: February 2017
Topics: Multiple
Change description: The following field descriptions have been updated in the following chapters:
  • Chapter 40. IFCID Record Blocks --> "IFCID 106 - Miscellaneous Installation Parameters"

    PARALL EFFICIENCY
    The parallelism efficiency factor.
    Note: This field has value of 0 if the System Management Facilities (SMF) trace contains the hexadecimal value X'8000'.
    This field corresponds to field PARALLELISM EFFICIENCY on installation panel DSNTIP8. The ZPARM name is PARA_EFF in DSN6SPRM.
    Field Name: QWP4PAEF

    MAX TAPE UNITS
    The maximum number of tape units or tape drives that the restore system utility can use to restore from a system-level backup that has been dumped to tape.
    A value of 0 is displayed for NOLIMIT.
    Install parameter MAXIMUM TAPE UNITS on installation panel DSNTIP6, or ZPARM RESTORE_TAPEUNITS in DSN6SPRM.
    Field Name: QWP4RSMT

    MAX REAL+AUX STOR
    The maximum amount of real plus auxiliary storage that can be used.
    A value of 0 is displayed for NOLIMIT.
    The ZPARM name is REALSTORAGE_MAX in DSN6SPRM.
    Field Name: QWP4RSMX

  • Chapter 40. IFCID Record Blocks --> "IFCID 106 - System Initialization Parameters"

    LEVEL ID CHECKPS
    Shows how often, in checkpoints, the level ID of a page set or partition is updated. When zero (0), down-level detection is disabled. When five (5), down-level is enabled.
    Use the following criteria to decide on a suitable value for this parameter:

    • How often are backup and restore methods used outside of the DB2 control (such as DSN1COPY or DFDSS dump and restore)? If rarely used, there is no need to update the level ID frequently.
    • How many page sets are open for update at the same time? If DB2 updates level IDs frequently, there is extra protection against down-level page sets. However, a performance degradation can occur if the level IDs for many page sets must be set at every checkpoint.
    • How often does the subsystem take checkpoints? If the DB2 subsystem takes frequent system checkpoints, set the level ID frequency to a higher value.

    Install parameter LEVELID UPDATE FREQ on panel DSNTIPL, or ZPARM DLDFREQ in DSN6SYSP.
    Field Name: QWP1DFRQ

  • Chapter 40. IFCID Record Blocks --> "IFCID 106 - Distributed Data Facility Parameters"

    CONN Q MAX WAIT
    The maximum time that a connection waits for a DBAT request. If this value is non-zero, and QWP9CMST is active, or the subsystem is not a member of a data sharing group, DB2 operates as if this value is 0.
    A value of 0 is displayed for OFF; a value of 1 is displayed for ON.
    This field corresponds to field CONN QUEUE MAX WAIT on installation panel DSNTIP5. The ZPARM name is MAXCONQW in DSN6FAC.
    Field Name: QWP9MCONQW

    CONN Q MAX DEPTH
    The maximum depth of the connection-request queue of connections that are waiting for a DBAT to process a request. If this value is non-zero, and QWP9CMST is active, or the subsystem is not a member of a data sharing group, DB2 operates as if this value were 0.
    A value of 0 is displayed for OFF; a value of 32767 is displayed for ON.
    This field corresponds to field CONN QUEUE MAX DEPTH on installation panel DSNTIP5. The ZPARM name is MACONQN in DSN6FAC.
    Field Name: QWP9MCONQN


  • Chapter 54. System Parameters Report Blocks --> "Performance and Optimization (DSNTIP8, DSNTIP81)"

    PARALL EFFICIENCY
    The parallelism efficiency factor.
    Note: This field has value of 0 if the System Management Facilities (SMF) trace contains the hexadecimal value X'8000'.
    This field corresponds to field PARALLELISM EFFICIENCY on installation panel DSNTIP8. The ZPARM name is PARA_EFF in DSN6SPRM.
    Field Name: QWP4PAEF

  • Chapter 54. System Parameters Report Blocks --> "Log Installation Parameters (DSNTIPL, DSNTIPH)"

    CHECKPOINTS BETWEEN LEVEL ID UPDATES (DLDFREQ)
    Shows how often, in checkpoints, the level ID of a page set or partition is updated. When zero (0), down-level detection is disabled. When five (5), down-level is enabled.
    Use the following criteria to decide on a suitable value for this parameter:

    • How often are backup and restore methods used outside of the DB2 control (such as DSN1COPY or DFDSS dump and restore)? If rarely used, there is no need to update the level ID frequently.
    • How many page sets are open for update at the same time? If DB2 updates level IDs frequently, there is extra protection against down-level page sets. However, a performance degradation can occur if the level IDs for many page sets must be set at every checkpoint.
    • How often does the subsystem take checkpoints? If the DB2 subsystem takes frequent system checkpoints, set the level ID frequency to a higher value.

    Field Name: QWP1DFRQ

  • Chapter 54. System Parameters Report Blocks --> "DB2 Utilities Parameters (DSNTIP6, DSNTIP61, DSNTIP62)"

    MAXIMUM TAPE UNITS (RESTORE_TAPEUNITS)
    The maximum number of tape units or tape drives that the restore system utility can use to restore from a system-level backup that has been dumped to tape.

    CONNECTION QUEUE MAX DEPTH (MAXCONQN)
    The maximum depth of the connection-request queue of connections that are waiting for a DBAT to process a request. If this value is non-zero, and QWP9CMST is active, or the subsystem is not a member of a data sharing group, DB2 operates as if this value were 0.
