DB2 Software

Analyze for STROBE
Company:
Software Engineering GMBH
Analyze for STROBE automates the STROBE process to pinpoint relevant SQL statements for further analysis by an EXPLAIN tool, e.g., Analyze+.

Analyze+ for DB2
Company:
Software Engineering GMBH
To get the most out of automation, it is essential to perform application tuning instead of mere statement tuning. As opposed to statement tuning that is addressed by the majority of the well known EXPLAIN tools - they analyze SQL statements on a stand-alone basis - application tuning additionally reflects the actual usage of application systems by monitoring them. This allows concentration on the worst, i.e., highest resource consuming, SQL statements and avoids time spent analyzing SQL statements that have insignificant performance impact.

APPTUNE for DB2
Company:
BMC
Alleviates problems caused by inefficient or run-away SQL statements.

Batch Analyzer
Company:
SoftBase
The Batch Health Care Solution from SoftBase provides a far more cost-effective and reliable solution to shorten your batch run times than purchasing expensive CPU upgrades. Batch Analyzer diagnoses your batch job stream health problems by locating costly SQL statements and finding and eliminating time-consuming contention problems between DB2 programs. By allowing you to quickly find and fix expensive SQL statements and to execute DB2 batch jobs in parallel, Batch Analyzer enables you to complete your nightly production work in a fraction of the time.

BPA4DB2 - Bufferpool Analyser for DB2
Company:
UBS Hainer
Substancial BUFFERPOOL Analysis Tool for DB2, Guidance for BUFFERPOOL and GROUP BUFFER design, checks allocation of objects to pools, threshold recommendations, helps to eliminate HIPERPOOLS.

Buffer Pool Optimizer
Company:
Responsive Systems
Buffer Pool Optimizer™ provides the complete configuration and sizes for your buffer pools, and properly group your objects into the required number of pools, to optimize your performance based on the amount of memory you can allocate for DB2 buffer Pools. It removes the analysis time and effort from your pool tuning activities, and allows you to focus on other areas that may provide additional performance benefits. The Buffer Pool Tool® is a pre-requisite for Buffer Pool Optimizer.

Buffer Pool Tool for DB2
Company:
Responsive Systems
Buffer Pool Tool is the proven and accepted industry standard software for tuning DB2 for z/OS buffer pools. As the only product that can predict the effect of sizing and threshold changes, or moving objects into different or totally new pools - it remains the only way to remove the guesswork from pool tuning and guarantee that tuning changes will provide performance gains. Attempting to tune without being able to predict is merely guessing about the outcome - and pool size increases don't always, or necessarily, provide a performance improvement. Since the most important performance metric is the I/O rate/second, Buffer Pool Tool predicts this, predicts the System Hit Ratio, and predicts the working set sizes of all objects at different pool sizes, and/or in different pools.

CA Bind Analyzer for z/OS
Company:
CA
Bind Analyzer helps manage the execution of BINDs. Since BINDs consume significant amounts of resources Bind Analyzer is used to pinpoint exactly when a BIND is required. This helps reduce unnecessary access path calculations, reducing contention for the supporting data and resources that must be available during BINDs.

In a single pass of the data, Fast Check performs check index, check disk, and DSNCOPY check - all without taking the data off line.

CA Fast Index for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
The process of creating indexes on large tables can have a detrimental effect on a DB2 system. Traditional index-building tools, such as CREATE INDEX, are slow and the CPU time involved is expensive. In addition, the volume of data and elapsed time required for sorting can cause DSNDB07 lockouts to applications unrelated to the indexed table. With CA's Fast Index, you can build indexes in a fraction of the time required by other tools, so there's virtually no impact on your DB2 system resources.

CA Fast Load for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
In a DB2 environment, it's often necessary to load large amounts of data from other tables, such as DBMSs or sequential files, into DB2 tables. Unfortunately, conventional load utilities are slow, and the data in the target tablespace is typically unavailable during the load process. Conventional load utilities also have limited functionality and require significant amounts of disk space to run loads. Fast Load is an efficient and flexible tool that loads your DB2 data.

CA Fast Recover for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
The flexible tool for the fastest possible DB2 recoveries

CA Fast Unload for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA

CA Rapid Reorg for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
The information stored in your DB2 for z/OS databases is vital to the operation of your organization. Unfortunately, constant additions, deletions, and updates of that information cause the data to become disorganized. Since retrieving disorganized data requires more I/Os, is time-consuming, costly, and impacts end-user productivity, the solution is to routinely reorganize your DB2 data. The solution is Rapid Reorg and its companion product, Online Reorg.

CA RC/Compare for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Migrating the data is only half the battle. After weathering the challenging task of data migration, you may dread the thought of comparing and synchronizing two database environments. You need a reliable tool that seamlessly takes you from migration to synchronization...you need RC/Compare. RC/Compare can incorporate changes from a test environment into an existing production environment, keeping production in sync with enhancements to the test data model.

CA RC/Extract for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Extracting RI data is a challenging and cumbersome process. With most tools and manual methods, you first have to obtain a data sample from a parent table, then use the parent data for foreign key column values to extract data from child tables, which is complicated by the complex parent/child relationships. This leads to enormous amounts of time dedicated to data extraction tasks, and increased error rates.

CA RC/Query for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Retrieve, integrate, analyze and present catalog information

CA RC/Secure for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Managing DB2 objects, privileges, and users entails tedious and time-consuming security administration tasks that involve extensive hand coding and execution of countless statements. Furthermore, you can't share these tasks because only you have the authority to perform them. RC/Secure eases the burden of DB2 security administration by streamlining and automating tasks, and enabling you to delegate some of your responsibilities.

CA RC/Update for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
Effectively creating and maintaining DB2 for z/OS objects and data is a major challenge for every database administrator and developer. Application development and the management of DB2 objects and data are inherently inefficient, time-consuming, difficult, and expensive processes. A significant learning curve impedes the productivity of new DB2 DBAs and developers. RC/Update is the tool that provides all the functionality needed to effectively address the issues facing DBAs and developers.

CA Recovery Analyzer® for DB2 for z/OS
Company:
CA
When faced with a DB2 recovery situation, the last thing you want to worry about is spending precious time manually gathering and analyzing information. Usually, you must identify the objects to recover, determine how to perform the recovery, code the jobs, check their syntax, then execute the recovery...and hope it works! Not anymore. Recovery Analyzer brings critical DB2 applications back online, saves valuable time and resources, and alleviates the stress inherent in a recovery situation.

With SQL-Ease, developers can be assured they are writing the most efficient, accurate SQL in the least possible time.

CA Subsystem Analyzer for DB2 for z/OSfor z/OS
Company:
CA
The system is running slow, and users are complaining. It's time to tune DB2, but where do you start? It's difficult to know how your critical I/O resources-the DB2 objects, DASD volumes, and buffer pools in your subsystem-are being used over time. And it's even harder to judge whether the subsystem itself is optimally tuned. Subsystem Analyzer provides the advantage of proactively analyzing and tuning your subsystem with speed and precision.
