    Learn more about using RC/Merger Move Analysis to perform fast and efficient DB2 data migrations by watching the following CA RC/Migrator videos:

    An RC/Merger Move Analysis acts the same as a standard migration strategy analysis in CA RC/Migrator. However, the analysis is up to 95% more efficient and faster because RC/Merger automates the movement or copying of unstructured DB2 data from underlying VSAM data sets, snapshot point-in-time copies, and Flashcopy data sets as source. RC/Merger processing:

    • Converts unload and load statements to copy data sets, copying in parallel
    • Eliminates building of indexes (REBUILD INDEX)
    • Copies statistics from source eliminating the need to update statistics (no RUNSTATS)

    This leaves the source data sets untouched during full execution (Flashcopy as source) or for a very minimum time (in Snapshot).
