(Henrik Loeser) For my tutorial on automated data retrieval and analytics, I use IBM Cloud Functions to automatically fetch GitHub traffic statistics once a day.
(Rafael Victória-Pereira) I’ve been asked this question many times recently. The short answer is yes…and no. Keep reading to get a grasp on these two very important concepts and get to the long answer.
(Troy L Coleman) I was recently asked about the Db2 zparm, NPGTHRSH. Admittedly, I knew little about it. The first place I always go to learn about zparms is the Db2 installation and migration manual.
(Jim Dee) The term “DevOps” is occupying a lot of space in articles, presentations, and blogs lately. But it doesn’t apply to the mainframe or Db2 on z/OS… or does it?
(Craig S. Mullins) If you have heard anything about Db2 Version 12 chances are that you have heard about continuous delivery. Instead of waiting 2 to 3 years for a new version of Db2 to be released, new functionality will be continuously delivered on a regular basis.
(John Campbell and Paul McWilliams) Fast index traversal is one of the the most important new performance features in Db2 12 for z/OS. It is an in-memory index performance optimization that enables Db2 to do fast index lookup, by avoiding expensive index B-tree traversal.
(Julian Stuhler) The advent of DB2 12 for z/OS brought with it a fundamental change in the way that IBM is delivering new DB2 capabilities.
On this special episode, we sit down with one of the Db2 legends, Matt Huras. He’s a chief architect for Db2 LUW, an IBM Master Inventor with 54 granted U.S. patents, a prolific public speaker and member of the International Db2 Users Group Hall of Fame.
(Scott) 100% of our audience learned something! Mohan took us into the bowels of Db2 pureScale locking and logging, complete with sample SQL, monitoring commands, configuration considerations, important stuff you need to know for Db2 V11.1 Certification Testing, and much more!
(Paul_McWilliams) We’re proud to announce that function level 502 (V12R1M502) is now available in Db2 12!
