productivity for DB2 on z/OS

Were watching DB2 so you can watch your business


Because your data is arguably your organizations most valuable asset, you must
ensure that the data is secure, available, and performing at levels required to meet
your business goals. At BMC Software, data is our business. We make sure your
DB2 for z/OS databases and applications are secure and recoverable, performing
optimally, and available for your applications when they need it. We will treat your
data like it was our own.

THE BMC SOLUTION


Whether you need to reduce processing costs, improve availability or productivity, or
reduce risk, BMC Database Management for DB2 for z/OS solutions can help. With
BMC Database Management for DB2 solutions, you can manage more data more
effectively than ever before.

THE BMC DIFFERENCE


Enables version control - can roll changes
forward or back as needed
Allows you to recover inadvertently dropped
DB2 objects, can recreate structure,
authorizations and data
Automatically calculates optimal work file sizes
and dynamically allocates work file and copy
data set space
Provides dynamic allocation, automatic restart,
and automated error correction
Avoids failure when resources are unavailable
(Automatic Retry). Automatically recovers and
restarts failed copy jobs.
Provides the ability to back out changes
Includes an integrated table editor

Simplify database administration


Implementing changes is risky because you must manage object and schema
changes (and all underlying changes), navigate the DB2 catalog, and perform
administrative tasks such as unloading, loading, and copying objects all while
maintaining availability and data integrity.
BMC Database Administration for DB2 provides intelligent automation for all DB2
for z/OS environments, including those driven by ERP/CRM, data warehouse,
and Internet applications. It reduces the time required to administer multiple
DB2 environments, while providing application and data integrity. BMC Database
Administration for DB2 provides catalog and change management tools and highspeed utilities to support objects throughout the application lifecycle with automation
and reliability. BMC Database Administration for DB2 includes the following products:

BMC CHANGE MANAGER for DB2


BMC CATALOG MANAGER for DB2
BMC UNLOAD PLUS for DB2
BMC LOADPLUS for DB2
BMC COPY PLUS for DB2
BMC SNAPSHOT UPGRADE FEATURE

BMC Database Administration for DB2:

Improves DB2 object availability and integrity by managing changes with integrity and performing
maintenance with minimal outages

Reduces costs of unloading, loading, and copying DB2 data by managing its own buffering, avoiding
unnecessary processing by processing objects in one pass, running outside of DB2, and eliminating the
need to execute the RUNSTATS utility, sort data, and reorganize indexes separately

Improves productivity by simplifying DB2 catalog navigation and change management, and by providing
an integrated table editor

Mitigates risk by synchronizing changes with related objects


The BMC Difference

Automate database maintenance and reorganize with no outage

Performs maintenance only on


objects that require it

Over time, insert, delete, and update activity cause DB2 table spaces and indexes to become disorganized.
Disorganized databases lead to transaction and batch performance degradation. You need to ensure
availability while maintaining data integrity.

Maintains continuous access to


DB2 during a reorganization
Controls and increases collection
of statistics without affecting
applications accessing DB2
Generates batch and online
analysis reports to proactively
manage space allocation
Integrates with BMC SQL
Performance for DB2 to identify
objects that are experience
both degraded statistics and
degrading performance

BMC Database Performance for DB2 automates database maintenance and reduces unnecessary CPU
cycles. It determines which maintenance tasks are required and can execute those tasks automatically.
BMC Database Performance for DB2 uses triggers and statistics to generate reorganizations of the data
only when needed and can execute reorganizations without disrupting application access to the data. BMC
Database Performance for DB2 includes the following products:

results of last disaster recovery
Enables you to create a clean
copy with no outage
Recovers to any point in time,
even though there is no quiesce
or quiet point
Enables Conditional Restart
Avoidance for local subsystem
recovery
Reduces the elapsed time of copy
jobs by 50% or more with Cabinet
Copy

Backup and recover DB2 for z/OS data with minimal or no outage
Downtime is expensive, and unplanned outages can have grave consequences. You need to be prepared to
recover quickly and get all applications back online. Because about 80 percent of database recoveries are
the result of user or application errors, you need a local backup plan as well as a disaster recovery plan.
BMC Recovery Management for DB2 provides integrated tools to back up and recover databases and to
analyze logs, including:

BMC COPY PLUS for DB2


BMC Log Master for DB2
BMC RECOVER PLUS for DB2
BMC RECOVERY MANAGER for DB2
BMC SNAPSHOT UPGRADE FEATURE for DB2
Exclusive features that are not available in the individual products, including recovery time simulation,
online consistent copy, and timestamp recovery

BMC Recovery Management for DB2:

Mitigates risk with automated disaster recovery support


Improves performance with advanced log processing and other recovery techniques
Improves availability by backing up with no outage and by physical backout recovery
Reduces risk by simulating recovery scenarios so that when you need to recover, you will be fully prepared

Identify and resolve SQL performance problems quickly

THE BMC DIFFERENCE

SQL statements provide access to DB2 data, and inefficient SQL causes performance problems for DB2 for
z/OS applications. Because performance problems increase costs and affect service levels to end users,
you must be able to manage SQL performance continuously, from initial development to production. When
performance problems occur, you need to find and fix them quickly.

Models changes in SQL


statements and index design
with Integrated Common Explain

BMC SQL Performance for DB2 enables you to pinpoint poorly performing SQL quickly and easily. It provides
tools to manage SQL performance across the application lifecycle. In development it validates SQL to ensure
optimal performance characteristics, such as valid access paths and best-practice SQL coding techniques.
In production it captures metrics to identify and resolve performance problems. BMC SQL Performance for
DB2 recommends optimal index usage, enables workload comparisons, and uses historical data to identify
performance trends. BMC SQL Performance for DB2 includes the following products:

BMC APPTUNE for DB2


BMC SQL Explorer for DB2

Gathers and manages historical performance data for trending and analysis
Identifies which DB2 objects need reorganization, evaluating both space usage and performance
metrics, thus reducing reorganizations

Isabel Nobre, Senior DBA at Caixa


Econmica Montepio Geral in
Portugal (Montepio) said that their
online systems use dynamic SQL:
BMC APPTUNE helps us a lot. In the
early days we had problems and we
didnt know where to look when a
query was unexpectedly slow. BMC
APPTUNE showed us the statement
that is taking so much time.
She had similar batch issues:
A run that took one hour came
down to five minutes. It was easy to
find and solve with BMC APPTUNE.
That program had been running
for months before we realized and
fixed it.

Optimize system and buffer pool performance


A poorly tuned DB2 system consumes a large percentage of mainframe resources. A
poorly tuned DB2 system affects overall response time and can ultimately lead to costly
hardware upgrades. You need to keep systems and buffer pools tuned to reduce DB2
costs and deliver optimal service levels.
BMC System Performance for DB2 monitors your DB2 systems to detect performance
problems and correct them before they cause outages. It supplies critical data about
DB2, including current thread activity, DB2 status and statistics, buffer pool status
and statistics, and lockout events. With dynamic buffer pool tuning, BMC System
Performance for DB2 adjusts pool sizes to optimize performance while considering
overall storage usage and reduces overhead associated with DB2 dynamic statement
cache management. BMC System Performance for DB2 includes the following products:

BMC MainView for DB2
