Db2 function level support

When you activate new Db2 function levels in a Db2 subsystem or data sharing group, enhancements might become available that impact Db2 Analytics Accelerator Loader.

The levels of function level support are defined as follows:
Tolerated
Accelerator Loader works as it did on a previous release or function level of Db2 for z/OS, but does not support the new features of this function level.
Supported
Accelerator Loader supports most, but not necessarily all, of the new function-level features that IBM deems the most significant.

The following function levels are tolerated or supported by Accelerator Loader and are listed with the corresponding PTF, if any are available. PTFs are listed with the function level they were first introduced. Later function levels require installation of PTFs introduced by prior function levels.

When upgrading to a later Db2 version, use the IBM Tools Customizer to create and then run the generated bind JCL. See the HOLDDATA entry for the toleration PTF associated with a Db2 function level.
