NEW: CA Fast Unload® for DB2 for z/OS Supports zIIP for Unload from Image Copies

By Jakub Hofman posted 01-27-2021 09:55 AM

CA Fast Unload® for DB2 for z/OS now supports the use of the IBM System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) when you unload data from image copies. Previously, zIIP support was only available for INPUT-FORMAT TABLE. Now, zIIP support is provided for all INPUT-FORMAT values. Offloading zIIP-eligible workloads to zIIP processors can reduce the processing load on your general CPUs. We yielded good performance gains in controlled lab environment, however your results may vary based on many factors such as z/OS environment, application workload and others.
zIIP functionality is enabled by default. Use the zIIP keyword in the SYSIN DD or in hlq.CDBAPARM(PFU) to control zIIP processing.

This enhancement is available with PTFs: SO16194, SO16195
