Session title: New Frontiers in Leveraging z/OS Real Storage for Optimal Db2 Performance

Session abstract: z/OS LPAR real storage resources are getting larger and larger, and Db2 keeps providing new ways to leverage that resource for enhanced application performance. In this session, I’ll talk about assessing a z/OS LPAR’s real storage resource, and then I’ll explain how to optimize a Db2 buffer pool configuration, utilize thread memory for CPU savings, effectively manage EDM pool space, and more.

Session title: Let Me Make This Clear: Explaining Often-Misunderstood Db2 for z/OS Concepts and Facilities

Session abstract: Some aspects of Db2 for z/OS technology are plain as day; others, less so. Questions I get from Db2 users worldwide have highlighted for me things that a lot of folks – even very experienced Db2 people – tend to misunderstand. From APPLCOMPAT to contiguous buffer pools, from MAXDBAT to the IBM Data Server Driver package collection, in this session I’ll try to take folks from “Uh” to “Oh!”
