DB2 and the new zEnterprise EC12 machine
DB2 11 (next release)
Fastest uptake
Adoption Driven by:
Virtual Storage Constraint relief for more threads
Security, RAS improvements
As of March 2012
Over two times as many customers –and– over three times as many licenses as what we had with DB2 V8 or DB2 9 at the same point in time. With about 25% of the customers migrating from DB2 V8.
From a quick survey with a set of 500 customers on a DB2 10 for z/OS migration call, a number of the respondents said they are targeting to be in production by YE2011
Customers have been enthusiastic about DB2 10 for z/OS performance and scalability. Some customers are able to simplify their structure and many are seeing better productivity. The security and temporal function are seeing strong early acceptance. A safer infrastructure with better audit function can help customers avoid the need for a new security structure. Customers are signing up for the V8 to DB2 10 migration to save time and to get these improvements faster.

The IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator is:
An integration of IBM hardware, software, and storage and advanced technologies focused on business analytics, that combine to give IBM clients the industry's most high performance analytic capability, to extract business insight from information assets, providing the right answers to the right questions at the right time. .
It removes the costs of traditional performance tuning such as indices, materialized query tables (MQTs) and query plan tuning that required extensive time and expensive resources.
Customer interaction
Multiple infrastructures required
Using web service calls to score new transactional data as it is coming into the business is currently very network intensive and can be costly when trying to ensure SLAs.
An alternative to using a web services call is to score the transactional data after it is moved into the data warehouse/data mart/ODS. Because we are now reliant on the ETL schedule, the score is only as current as the last refresh and scoring of the data. This makes it difficult if not impossible to provide the highest level of business insight at the point of customer interaction
Score is static and does not change based on new customer interactions
Score is only as current as the ETL/batch copy/model schedule
High Networking Traffic
As volume increases so do the costs
SLA’s = Real-time Scoring needs to provide the same levels of service as the OLTP application, as our performance, availability, scalability requirements grow as do our costs & complexity, with the needs for more hardware and software to support demand.
Applications may be built off the System z platform , increasing the cost & complexity of scoring

75-90% less usage in DB2 10 compared to DB2 9
Some of working storage (stack, xproc storage) stays below 2GB
Larger number of threads
Improve CPU with storage
DB2 10
Thread / Stack/ working
Laboratory measurements and early customer experience have shown substantial savings in the primary constrained address space, DBM1. Most measurements have shown 75% to 90% savings for the virtual storage in that address space below the 2 GB bar. Some EDMPOOL and some working storage remains below the bar.
This storage relief allows many more threads or concurrent users in a DB2 subsystem, allowing new possibilities for optimization.
Some customers will be able to consolidate data sharing members, saving on memory, CPU and administration time.
Other customers will be able to use the storage to improve service or to reduce CPU time more. Some common examples are expected to be use of RELEASE(DEALLOCATE) and larger amounts of dynamic statement cache.

DB2 10 Performance
Most customers can see a 5% - 10% out-of-the-box CPU reduction (transactions and batch) after rebind
Some workloads and customer situations can see a CPU reduction of up to 20%
Synergistic operation with latest System z hardware
Sample: Preliminary Measurements of IBM Relational Warehouse Workload (IRWW) with Data Sharing
DB2 9 NFM DB2 10 CM without REBIND showed 1.3% CPU reduction
DB2 10 CM REBIND with same access path showed 4.8% CPU reduction
DB2 10 NFM brought 5.1% CPU reduction
DB2 10 CM or NFM with RELEASE DEALLOCATE 12.6% CPU reduction from DB2 9

Easier scaling, simpler memory management
Reduce contention, more online processing
Reduced need for REORG
Index list prefetch enhancements
Statement level monitoring
DDF thread management enhancements
Customers appreciate the improved performance and scalability. Virtual storage management almost disappears. DB2 has a strong focus on making DB2 easier to use by automating tasks and eliminating tasks where possible. Avoiding the manual invocations can also help avoid problems for running the function too often or not often enough. Where the task cannot be eliminated, the frequency and monitoring can be reduced, such as the need to reorganize. The improvements for virtual storage and for availability also help administrator productivity.
Some of the improvements come within DB2 for z/OS. Improvements in SQL and XML improve productivity for those who develop new applications and for those who are porting from other platforms. Some of the improvements remove complexity from application tasks.
Some of the improvements come with Data Studio for application programming and administration – stronger cross-platform graphical interfaces, better integration with Java, improvements in the ability to develop and debug.
Allowing tailored names for DSNHDECP will permit many subsystems to share the SDSNEXIT data set.

Problem: For distributed workloads, low priority or poorly behaving client applications may monopolize DB2 resources and prevent high-priority applications from executing.
Solution: Increased granularity of monitoring for system level activities
Number of connections
Number of threads
Idle thread timeout
Profiles specified in SYSIBM.DSN_PROFILE_TABLE
DB2 10 for z/OS adds support for filtering and threshold monitoring of system related activities via new keywords

Page size
Improve availability and productivity
Increase maximum size substantially
DDL concurrency also improved from removal of
DBD01 hash anchor locks
Many more table spaces, partition by growth
Row level locking, reordered row format
CLOB and BLOB columns for long strings
Inline for performance
Online reorganization and check
More automatic: DB2-managed SMS-controlled
Allow query of SYSLGRNX
The DB2 catalog and directory are restructured in DB2 10 ENFM to improve productivity and availability. You’ll see these improvements in NFM. The current size limits are increased substantially and contention among process like BIND, dynamic SQL, data definition and utilities is reduced. With more table spaces and more structures, more work is required for some process, such as BIND.
The primary techniques are changes in the DB2 catalog to remove links and the special structures for the catalog. These table spaces change from many tables to one table per table space in a partition by growth table space defined as DSSIZE 64 GB and MAXPART 1. Row level locking is used in place of page level locking. The new catalog tables use a partition by growth universal table space structure. Each table space holds a single table, so many more table spaces are needed. Rather than repeating columns with parts of long strings, the catalog will use CLOB and BLOB columns to store the data, expanding maximum sizes. Inline LOBs are used for the performance improvements. The new structure allows more standard processes, so that all catalog tables can be reorganized and checked online.
The DB2 catalog changes from using manual definition and extension to DB2 managed data sets under SMS control. The changes improve productivity and availability, but take time to set up.

Protect sensitive data from privileged users and improve productivity
Separation of duties
More granular control
New SECADM authority for security administration
System level DB admin with/without access control and with/without data access privileges
Usability: DBADM for all DB
New Explain privilege
Audit admin authority usage
Support distributed identities introduced in z/OS 1.11
Support client certificate authentication in z/OS 1.10
Support password phrases in z/OS 1.10
Connection level security enforcement using strong authentication
Row and column access control
Allow masking of value
Customers are being pressed for a wide range of improved security and compliance. Data retention is a growing need. Protecting sensitive data from the privileged users and administrators is required. Separation of authority for security, access, and some common tasks, like EXPLAIN will help. Auditing for privileged users can also make compliance simpler.
Access control is refined in several ways with better granularity for the administrative privileges and with finer grained access control at the row and column level, including the ability to mask access to some fields. Auditing policies: new IFCID for auditing admin authority usage. Dynamic table auditing (all access, stmt id level).
Granular admin authorities, separation of duties: sysadm: system level dbadm with/without accessctrl, with/without dataaccess. System level SECADM (separation of dutes, shift from dba to security group, zparm control to remove privileges from sysadm). System level SQLADM. App level explain privileges.
Distributed identities: supported in v9 via EIM, but not much used due to complexity. V10 allows for use of new RACF feature to map distributed identities passed in from app server to a RACF id. Ap server passes authenticated distributed end user identify using trusted context.
Client certificate: Eliminates need to manage RACF ids on DB2 clients. Used to be supported only via trusted context, but now also outside trusted context.
Connection level security enforcement: Zparm TCPLVER value SERVER_ENCRYPT

Plans containing DBRMs packages
Here are a couple of thoughts about what might be required in hardware and software to run DB2 10. Much will depend upon the timing of the deliveries and market acceptance. Moving forward as quickly as possible means that some of the past must be left behind. See the list of deprecated functions from prior versions.
The above functions are still included in DB2 9, but are generally deprecated and may be removed from future versions. Note the direction indicated to the right of the arrows, as these are the functions provided to replace the existing function. If you are using any of these functions, you are advised to move to the new function.
See the Installation Guide section, “Functions that are deprecated” and the announcement material for more information on these changes.

DB2 10 enables more persistent threads with RELEASE(DEALLOCATE)
Larger buffer pools, in-memory workfiles, I/O avoidance
Multi-core processors, alone, will be insufficient to enable application-level systems price & performance improvements at historical rates. Semiconductor scaling, which has provided the foundation for system-level improvements in cost and performance, is slowing down. While densities are expected to continue to improve, power efficiency is expected to lag. Transistor performance at constant power density has been close to constant since the 90nm node. The resulting lack of processor frequency growth has forced the industry to seek performance improvements through the introduction of multiple cores on a processor, and the parallel software to exploit them. In contrast to nodes prior to 32nm and 22nm, power density at constant frequency (and constant switching factor) will increase node-to-node past 22nm. This means that if a core was migrated from 22nm to 15nm and replicated to fill a chip of similar size, the operating frequency of these cores would have to be reduced in order to use the chip in a system of similar power supply and cooling capacity.

Extended RBA Problem Statement
DB2’s Relative Byte Address (RBA) for logging is 6 bytes
Gives 256TB of log record addressing capacity per DB2 subsystem/member
With heavy sustained logging rates, DB2 can exhaust the 6-byte RBA
DSNJ032I and DSNJ033E warning messages
Alert-level = ‘WARNING’ when RBA reaches x’F00000000000’
Alert-level = ‘CRITCIAL’ when RBA reaches x’FFFF00000000’
Manual recovery actions are needed
Data Sharing: shut down the affected member and start a new member in its place
Non Data Sharing: reset all PGLOGRBA values back to zero (extended outage)
Documented in the DB2 Administration Guide
If alert-level reaches ‘CRITICAL’ then DB2 terminates to protect data integrity and force recovery actions
Reason code 00D10251

Extended LRSN Problem Statement
The data sharing Log Record Sequence Number (LRSN) is derived from the 8-byte time-of-day clock which hits end of range in 2042
However, some data sharing groups have a non-zero LRSN “delta” which gets added to the TOD clock
If a non-zero “delta” exists, then the LRSN will hit end of range prior to 2042
Use DSNJU004 to determine if you have a non-zero LRSN delta value
A “delta” value could be set when data sharing is enabled or re-enabled
Whenever the end-of-log RBA of the enabling member is past the TOD clock
Some non data sharing customers have enabled data sharing to circumvent RBA nearing end-of-range
This would cause a non-zero LRSN delta, so LRSN hits end of range before 2042
6-byte LRSN value has precision to only 16 microseconds
Can cause LRSN ‘spinning’ which burns extra cpu and aggravated log latch contention
V9 NFM addresses most LRSN spin situations, and V10 NFM enhances further. But some spins still exist due to the 16 usec granularity (log latch not held, page latches are)
© 2012 IBM Corporation
Expand the RBA and LRSN to 10 bytes
RBA addressing capacity of 1 yottabyte (2**80)
LRSN extended on left by 1 byte, on the right by 3 bytes
>30,000 years and 16Mx more precision
8 bytes is not sufficient to solve LRSN issues and may not give sufficient capacity for the longer term
NFM only (6 byte RBA/LRSN continues to be used in CM)
Once in NFM, DB2 continues to use 6-byte values until you take action to convert
Two conversion tasks:
Convert BSDSes to new format to enable logging with larger RBAs/LRSNs
Convert pagesets to new page format
These tasks are optional
If you don’t care about larger RBAs/LRSNs then you don’t have to convert
But performance will be better if you convert BSDSes (avoid internal conversion overhead on log write)
BSDSes can be converted without converting pagesets
Pagesets can be converted in a piecemeal fashion
Expectation is that most customers will roll the conversion over a period of days/weeks/months

Some Planned DB2 11 RAS Improvements
BIND / DDL concurrency with persistent threads
Use of persistent threads likely will increase in V10 with vstor relief
More online schema changes
Alter partitioning limit keys
Cancel DDF Threads – new FORCE option
Open data set limit raised to 200K
Workfile space shortage warning new instrumentation and messages
REORG avoidance
Automatic cleanup of index pseudo deleted entries
Online REORG improvements – if a REORG is needed, then the goal is non-disruptive
SWITCH phase performance improvements
Drain improvements to improve concurrency of log apply and switch phases
