Large partitioned table issue

Hi ... we're a mainframe V7 shop planning an imminent upgrade to V8. My
application team is converting an IMS DB into a DB/2 table ...
approximately 40GB of uncompressed (~20 GB compressed) data spread over
10 partitions. Approximately 35% of the data is "inactive" (easily
identifiable as such) and of limited (but some) use. We require 2
non-partitioning indexes on the data. The DBA group would like us to
put the "inactive" data into a separate table because of the sort
resource requirements to build the NPIs. Separating the data into two
tables would require application code to decide which table needs to be
accessed. Before agreeing to make application changes based on
operational requirements, I'd like some informed decisions as to
whether this should really be necessary and whether it will achieve
what the DBA group says it will.

Any takers?

While it is true that IMS can perform faster than DB2 in certain situations
(although not as many as you think), many DB2 schema changes can be made
while the system is running in production (even changes to existing tables),
and users and programmers can access the data without a extensive knowledge
of programming or DL/I.
Gee, I didn't realize DB2 could do all that ... is it, like, relational
too? Thanks for setting me straight, sonny! ;-)

I need to do a search through about 50 million records, each of which are less than 100 bytes wide. A database is actually too slow for this, so I thought of optimising the data and putting it all in memory. There is a single key field, so a dictionary is an obvious choice for a structure, since Python optimises these nicely. But is there a better choice? Is it worth building some sort of tree?

I did it. I proposed python as the main language for our next CAD/CAM software because I think that it has all the potential needed for it. I'm not sure yet if the decision will get through, but something I'll need in this case is some experience-based set of rules about how to use python in this context. For example... is defining readonly attributes in classes worth the hassle ? Does duck-typing scale well in complex

Hello, Currently we have a database, and it is our desire for it to be able to store millions of records.

I have a test database that I have built in a 3 partition (and 3 node) environment. I have defined all the tables so they have the same partition key.

guys, I have a project need to move more than 100,000 records from one database table to another database table every week. Currently, users input date range from web UI, my store procedure will take those date ranges to INSERT records to a table in another database, then delete the records, but it will take really long time to finish this action (up to 1 or 2 hours). My question is if there is some other way I should do to speed up...

Hello all! I created a range-partitioned table, and noticed that indexes were created as "NOT PARTITIONED" (through db2look), even though I ran the index creating commands without this parameter. Not that I care too much now about it :-) But what will happen when once upon a time in the future I execute the "attach partition" command, and so add another partition to the existing (partitioned) table. Will the indexes then be automatically...

I have done some research on partitions and index partitions and this is where I hit the wall the 2nd time.
