CL207G – IBM – Db2 11.1 Administration Workshop for Linux
This course teaches Database Administrators to perform basic database administrative tasks using Db2 11.1, such as: creating database objects like tables, indexes and views, and loading data into the database with Db2 utilities like LOAD and INGEST. Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using db2pd command options, and monitoring with SQL statements that reference Db2 monitor functions. Students will learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to recover a database to a specific point in time using the archived logs. The course covers using EXPLAIN tools to review the access plans for SQL statements and adding indexes to improve SQL performance. It covers the locking performed by Db2 and the effect the application isolation level has on locking and lock wait conditions. Students will learn how to implement database security, including adding a security administrator, SECADM user, and implement database roles to simplify security management. The course also describes implementing Db2 native encryption for a database.
CL213G – DB2 for LUW: Basic Administration for AIX
This course teaches basic database administrative tasks using DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. These tasks include creating and populating databases and implementing a logical design to support recovery requirements. The access strategies selected by the DB2 Optimizer will be examined using the DB2 Explain tools.Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using the db2diag.log file messages to direct your investigation of problems, as well as using the db2pd commands.

CL285G – Quick Basics of DB2 Administration for Windows
This course teaches basic database administrative tasks using DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. These tasks include creating database objects like table, indexes and views and loading data into the database with DB2 utilities like LOAD and INGEST. Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using various db2pd command options and monitoring using SQL statements with DB2 monitor functions. Students will learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to recover a database to a specific point in time using the archived logs. Locking performed by DB2 and the effect the application isolation level has on locking and lock wait conditions are covered. This course provides a quick start to DB2 database administration skills for experienced relational Database Administrators (DBA).
The lab exercises are performed using DB2 LUW 10.5 for Windows. For some exercise tasks students will have the option to complete the task using a DB2 command line processor or using the graphical interface provided by IBM Data Server Manager.
CL450G – Implementation and Use of DB2 BLU Acceleration
This course covers the implementation of DB2 BLU Acceleration and column-organized table support, for a new or existing DB2 database. Students will learn to describe how the column dictionaries used for DB2 BLU Acceleration are built and utilized to provide extreme compression for column-organized tables. Students will get practical experience in the planning and utilization of the DB2 BLU Acceleration functions, using DB2 LUW commands, utilities and SQL statements, and by performing a lab exercise using DB2 Advanced Enterprise Edition 10.5 installed on a Linux platform.
CL451 – IBM – DB2 11 BLU Acceleration Implementation and Use
This course is intended for Data Administrators preparing to use DB2 BLU Acceleration facilities of DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX and Windows systems.
The course covers concepts and facilities of the BLU Acceleration feature of DB2 11, including loading data into column-organized tables, and monitoring the processing of SQL statements that access the tables.
The DB2 10.5 Fix Pack 4, referred to as Cancun, added support for Shadow tables, a new type of Materialized Query Table, and also Column-organized User Maintained MQT tables. With DB2 11.1, BLU Acceleration can be used in a clustered multiple database partition DB2 environment.
This course includes a lecture and demonstration that allows students to create a set of column-organized tables from an existing set of row-organized tables and execute and analyze the performance of BLU Acceleration in a MPP database.
The lab demonstrations are performed using DB2 LUW 11.1 for Linux.
CL485G – DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Quickstart for Experienced Relational DBAs
This course teaches basic and advanced, database administrative tasks using DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Students will learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to plan a redirected database restore to relocate either selected table spaces or an entire database. The REBUILD option of RESTORE, which can build a database copy with a subset of the tablespaces, will be discussed.

KM204G – IBM InfoSphere DataStage Essentials
This course enables the project administrators and ETL developers to acquire the skills necessary to develop parallel jobs in DataStage. The emphasis is on developers. Only administrative functions that are relevant to DataStage developers are fully discussed. Students will learn to create parallel jobs that access sequential and relational data and combine and transform the data using functions and other job components.
KM213G – IBM InfoSphere QualityStage Essentials
This course teaches students how to build QualityStage parallel jobs that investigate, standardize, match, and consolidate data records. Students will gain experience by building an application that combines customer data from three source systems into a single master customer record.
