Big data introduces data storage and system performance challenges. Keeping your growing tables small and efficient improves system performance as the smaller tables and indices are accessed faster; all other things being equal, a small database performs better than a large one. While traditional data purge techniques work well for smaller databases, they fail as the database size scales up into a few terabytes. This tutorial will discuss an algorithm to efficiently delete terabytes of data from the DB2 database.

Add and detach data partitions from DB2 partitioned tables using InfoSphere DataStage
Table partitioning has benefits like the ability to roll-in (including data in a table) and roll-out (detaching data from a table) and improving query performances particularly in Data warehouse and decision support system environment. These activities are mostly performed manually by the DBAs but in a real-time DWH where there is continuous flow of data via ETL tools, too many manual interventions is unwanted and can impact the ETL running process. The article discusses how ETL process can be used for adding empty partitions to a partitioned table and also removing unwanted partitions from the table without any manual or DBA intervention he or she can gain from reading the content.

Unit test SQL PL routines by using db2unit framework in DB2 LUW
SQL PL routines stored in DB2 databases contain business logic that can be used by all applications that access the database. However, these routines are not always completely tested. Until now, no standard procedure existed to perform automatic tests against them. With the incursion of test-driven development from the eXtreme Programming paradigm, it is important to write test cases that check all possible conditions. Doing so even before starting development ensures the quality of the software. db2unit is a framework that helps you follow these guidelines by writing better code and creating more reliable applications. Learn how to use the innovative framework that, automating unit tests for the SQL PL routines.

Centralize logs for IBM Bluemix apps using the ELK Stack
IBM Bluemix, IBM's next-generation cloud platform, enables developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage cloud applications. Due to its cloud nature, Bluemix does not automatically persist application log files. However, it does let developers drain their logs to external log management services. This feature, coupled with the components of the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), not only provide developers a centralized location for persistent logs, but also enables them to run analytics on and visualize the log data. This article is targeted for intermediate developers who are familiar with Bluemix and have a basic familiarity with Linux. It provides a brief background on the ELK Stack and then walks you through the process of installing and configuring the components.
