I’m still talking about real-time statistics. This is what is referred to as the trickle affect. Periodically I keep discussing another little piece of real-time statistics. This stuff is important… it’s useful… and in my opinion it’s pretty interesting…. Every time I reread one of my posts, I think of something else I should have said.
Now it’s time to discuss managing index usage via real-time stats.
An interesting title for a blog post? The word “update” implies I have discussed real time statistic before; I have not. Although, I wish I had. In fact, it’s getting ever more difficult to come up with an original DB2 for z/OS subject to write about. It sometimes seems like everything has been done, been discussed, been explained; and at least a couple of times by now. This blogging stuff was so much easier when I had the only blog that covered DB2 for z/OS. Now there are a bunch of these blogs; they’re everyplace. Unfortunately, I must admit that a couple of them a pretty good. It’s difficult for me to write about something that someone else has already done a great job describing.
Today’s blog post is a continuation of my earlier post on real time statistics (“An update on Real Time Statistics”) made just last week (March 21, 2013). Continuation is my way of saying I forgot to mention something that I really should have mentioned to make my real time statistics conversation more accurate. I didn’t discuss the relationship between DB2’s utilities and real time stats.
Testing for the second service pack of 2013, RSU service package RSU1302, is now complete. This March 2013 4th Quarter quarterly report is the second addendum of 2013. It is based on the previous quarter and contains PE resolution and HIPER/Security/Integrity/Pervasive PTFs and their associated requisites and supersedes through January 2013.
The February 2013 product publication updates are now available. There were no updates for DB2 10 or DB2 9 for January 2013. The “almost new” tradition continues with the pub folk publishing documentation updates on a near monthly bases…..

2012 comes to an end today. Many have the day off, some don’t but aren’t getting much work done anyway, yet others still have things to complete to finish up their year. With all that in mind, I thought a short yet still handy post would be perfect to cap off the year.
Anyone who has ever messed around with tuning DB2 for z/OS has probably come across an IFCID (instrumentation facility component identifier) at one point or another. In fact, I did a blog post back in May 2010 discussing DSNWMSGS (Instrumentation Facility Component Identifier ) In fact, DB2’s IFCIDs have information on just about any DB2 for z/OS metric you could possibly be interested in, and new ones are added all the time and the current ones are always being expanded.
The December 2012 product publication updates are now available. It looks like the DB2 Publication’s Team managed to get all of the most popular DB2 product publications (or at least the most popular in my opinion) updated just in time for the Holidays, just days before Christmas. The “almost new” tradition continues with the pub folk publishing documentation updates on an monthly bases…..
