SQL indexes and native I/O – no contradiction
Native I/O is widely used in RPG and COBOL programs for getting access to the data stored in the database. Data access is mostly performed with the help of data description specifications (DDS) keyed physical and logical files. Unfortunately DDS is an outdated technology, while all future development regarding the database and data access is only integrated into SQL. For profiting from the new indexing technologies in release 6.1, native I/O does not need to be replaced with embedded SQL. SQL indexes can be used with native I/O like any keyed logical file. Moreover, the enhanced indexing technologies could first be used with native I/O while the SQL query optimizer could only partially profit from these enhancements.This article explains how SQL indexes can be used in conjunction with native I/O and how native I/O can profit from the enhanced indexing technologies.

Translating the monetary cost of SQL statements, Part 1: SQL cost in DB2 9.7 and 10.1
What's a timeron worth to you? Who knows? DB2 SQL statement cost is measured in timerons, not dollars. This tutorial will discuss an approach to translating a timeron cost, and the associated administrative and computing resource costs into a cost metric that matters: dollars! You will learn the features and resources we considered for this calculation. We will discuss the resulting statistical monitors and measures available in DB2 and AIX that monitor I/O, memory, and CPU, which were used in determining the actual dollar-cost calculations, jointly created by IBM and a partner. We will then show the calculation for assigning a dollar cost to an SQL statement by way of examples. Using this data, you will learn about our formulas for predicting a dollar cost for a system. Steps used to derive the formula will also be provided. Lastly, we will cover some of the items that caused skew.

Leverage DB2 BLU Acceleration technology for tables involving unsupported data types
DB2 BLU Acceleration can provide performance improvements ranging from 35x to 73x and beyond for analytical queries with minimal tuning. In the mixed environment between OLTP and OLAP called OLTAP, DB2 shadow tables can be used to leverage BLU Acceleration without sacrificing OLTP performance. On the other hand, there are some restrictions such as data types. Though most data types are supported, some data types such as LOB and XML are not supported. For example, if your fact table contains invoice PDF data stored in a BLOB column, you cannot use BLU Acceleration as it is, which means you cannot create tables such as column-organized table. But there are ways to leverage BLU Acceleration even in such cases. This article guides you through those steps.

DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface, Part 4: Implementation for DB2 ACS
IBM DB2 Advanced Copy Services (DB2 ACS) supports taking snapshots for backup purposes in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases. You can use the DB2 ACS API through libraries implemented by your storage hardware vendors, or you can implement this API yourself. As of IBM DB2 10.5, a feature called Scripted Interface for DB2 Advanced Copy Services was introduced. It allows you to implement shell scripts instead of C libraries. These scripts can use the tools provided by the storage vendors to run the snapshot operations. The scripted interface can be used independently from your storage hardware. Additionally, DB2 supports storage hardware as soon as it becomes available. The feature supports all three architectures of DB2: enterprise server, multi-partitioned database using the database partitioning feature (DPF), and databases using pureScale. And it's supported on all UNIX and Linux platforms on which DB2 is certified. Part 4 of this "DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface" series demonstrates the usage of the scripted interface together with IBM System Storage and IBM Storage Manager. The DB2 database in this example is used by an SAP NetWeaver system.

Analyze DB2 spatial data with a free geobrowser
A geobrowser for DB2, Informix and Netezza is now available as a free download. You can easily list tables containing spatial data and select the tables to be displayed as a map using a combination of points, lines and polygons. The color, symbols, linestyle and shading are user selectable. Map navigation tools allow you to zoom in and out, pan the map and select and display the alphanumeric values associated with each graphic object. The geobrowser can render the results of spatial analysis using DB2, Informix or Netezza. Application developers can use these components to construct custom spatial visualization applications. This tutorial shows you step-by-step how to use the free geobrowser to visualize data from DB2 tables.
