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.

CL451G – 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.
