do you already know IBM’s new OSC (Optimization Service Center)? It supersedes the old Visual Explain and … it’s still [highlight]free[/highlight].
IBM Optimization Service Center for DB2 for z/OS is a workstation tool for monitoring and tuning the SQL statements that run on DB2 9 for z/OS and DB2 for z/OS Version 8.
- Analyze statements and at the workload level – such as all SQL statements from a particular collection, plan, or package
- Learn about statistics that are missing, inaccurate, or out-of-date and automatically generate specialized RUNTSTAS control statements
- Capture dynamic SQL statements from a DB2 subsystem or data sharing group, and analyze them as a workload, or drill into individual statements for detailed analysis
- Capture runtime information, such as number of executions and CPU time, about statements
- Proactively monitor the health of DB2 9 for z/OS SQL workloads, and receive problem alerts when a statement exceeds exception thresholds
- Format and view SQL statements with statistics annotations and as transformed by the DB2 optimizer
- View EXPLAIN information for individual SQL statements in a graphical format that makes relationships between database objects and operations instantly clear
- Graphically create and deploy plan hints
