Performance for DB2 Databases

Performance for DB2 Databases

Keep your DB2 environment optimized with Next Generation Technology (NGT)

Disorganized data structures, poorly allocated storage space, unreliable capacity planning—these are the enemies of a healthy, high-performance DB2 database and drive up the cost of DB2. Keep DB2 fully optimized with BMC Performance for DB2 Databases 11, a software solution that provides an array of database maintenance tools to help you:

  • Perform reorganizations faster, with fewer resources and zero downtime.
  • Determine precisely when a reorganization of your tables or indexes is required.
  • Ensure that reorganizations are only performed where they will actually make a difference.
  • Gather and store usage statistics that will help you stay proactive and in control of database maintenance.
  • Automate all of the time-consuming and error-prone processes of DB2 data management.

Optimize and automate database maintenance

The key to ensuring strong, reliable database performance is to build a maintenance routine that runs like clockwork. The tools in the Performance for DB2 Databases solution will help you do precisely that, with options for monitoring and analyzing performance data, performing fully online no-sort reorganizations, allocating table and index space, and automating many other routine maintenance tasks.

Know your environment

Gather and analyze in-depth usage and performance statistics from across your DB2 environment.

Target your reorg work

Use the detailed usage statistics you collect to determine whether reorganization would be beneficial or not—that way, you can schedule the ones you need and defer the ones you don’t.

Give your DB2 resources a break

Dramatically reduce resource consumption through Next Generation Technology of no-sort online reorgs.

Automate DB2 data management

Automate the processes for DB2 data management to simplify maintenance tasks.

Make real-time decisions on processing

Use real-time statistics to determine what to process and what to skip during execution with no JCL generation ever.
