This document provides a summarized list of the enhancements that we have made to Version 20.0 of the Database Management Solutions for Db2 for z/OS in Level Set PTF 20.0.03 (LU04945). Activation is only required for the object filter option in strategies Log Analyzer feature (LU04006). Other Db2 Tools highlights are also provided.
DevOps: We invite you to attend an interactive, hands-on Db2 DevOps workshop that demonstrates the tools that you need to perform Db2 application schema provisioning and test data provisioning using the Database Management Solutions for Db2 from the Zowe CLI interface.
In this workshop, you'll learn how to create profiles, connect to a Db2 for z/OS subsystem, and create Db2 objects in a development environment to implement object changes using the zowe dbm-db2 command and other CLI commands.
To attend a workshop and learn more about our approach to DevOps and existing capabilities, go to https://mainframe.broadcom.com/devops/db2-devops-dba. Or, join our validation group to use the pre-GA version of the DBM for Db2 Plug-in for Zowe CLI from our validate site. This workshop is not a feature in Level Set PTF 20.0.03.
Do you have what it takes to upgrade your Db2 version? A new Db2 VNext Readiness report is available within the Db2 for z/OS Report in Mainframe Resource Intelligence (MRI). This new report provides an overview of the challenges that you may encounter while completing your migration to Db2 VNext, including trends over time.
The Db2 for z/OS Report in MRI can help you quickly assess the complexity and size of your Db2 environment and also generate reports to help you achieve cost reductions, modernization, and data protection.
Request your Free assessment today at https://broadcom.com/trymri (check the box "Db2 Report for z/OS").
Detector now uses a zIIP processor to externalize collected standard activity data to a data store when a zIIP processor is available. The use of zIIP processors for this CPU-intensive processing can improve performance and can reduce costs.
Product PTF Analysis shows this information for all Broadcom mainframe products that have the necessary XML data available.
