In order to analize system performance I tried to discover how time is spent within my database system.
According to the documentation, TOTAL_RQST_TIME=TOTAL_WAIT_TIME + TOTAL_*_PROC_TIME.
By querying the service class table function (MON_GET_SERVICE_CLASS) I'm disappointed by the fact that there is a big difference between total_rqst_time and the sum of all other values.
It seems that with "normal" DML statements these two values are quite…Continue

Operational monitoring refers to collecting key system performance metrics at periodic intervals over time. This information gives you critical data to refine that initial configuration to be more tailored to your requirements, and also prepares you to address new problems that might appear on their own or following software upgrades, increases in data or user volumes, or new application deployments.... …Continue

The heart of today's data warehouse, big data and analytics initiatives is based around databases. Analysts show that transactional data and log data are top two types of data used in big data initiatives despite the immediate association of social data and unstructured content. DB2 for z/OS by example is robust, scalable, secure and provides some of the best transactional integrity. With all of this Mike Ferguson analyst and consultant concludes in his white paper : "All of this makes…Continue

To me it all depends on whether an organization can put controls around the following (non-exhaustive) criteria :
Accurate data - bad data is like a virus to the business and could…
