SQL response time, throughput and resource utilization are never ending challenges faced by the DB2 database administrator. Organizations face ever increasing volumes of dynamic SQL from distributed sources including Java and .Net applications, ad hoc query reporting tools, and packaged applications including SAP® and PeopleSoft®. Ensuring that SQL performance meets the needs of the business while avoiding excessive resource consumption and expensive CPU upgrades is a constant battle. Once acceptable performance levels are established, the DBA must prevent performance degradation when changing applications, performing routine DBA maintenance or installing new DB2 releases. The EZ-DB2® family of DB2 performance optimization solutions offers unique capabilities to help the DB2 DBA meet these challenges. The use of EZ-DB2 results in substantial CPU savings and a more efficient, stable DB2 environment.

SeQuaLizer for DB2
Company:
Software Engineering GMBH
Applications are constantly changing. Not only does it become impossible to find if SQL changes were made, but also to determine whether the changes are relevant. SeQuaLizer® compares different versions of SQL sources and pinpoints SQL tuning candidates based on the relevance of a change. The goal of this comparison is to establish whether a change to a SQL statement constitutes further EXPLAIN evaluation based on the likelihood of performance consequences. If the performance is not likely to be effected, all SQL is equal in SeQuaLizer®.

Smart DB2 Batch
Company:
Relational Architects International
Smart/RRSAF lets you run DB2 batch programs with regular JCL, so they look and behave like standard OS jobs. This ensures accurate SMF job accounting and accurate jobstep completion codes to prevent SNAFUs in DB2 batch production. Smart/RRSAF transparently supports both RRSAF and CAF. Applications can utilize either DB2 attachment without need for user code to manage an explicit DB2 connection. Smart/RRSAF enables your applications to update DB2, MQ, IMS and/or any other RRS compliant resources within a single unit of recovery and implements a variable COMMIT frequency. Trace application DB2 activity which may include SQL calls, RRSAF, CAF and IFI requests and/or DB2 commands. Moreover, you can migrate from TSO Attach to Smart/RRSAF without source changes. (Note: Smart/RRSAF is the successor product to Smart/CAF.)
