Oracle statspack Vs DB2 ???

P: n/a

Hi all,

I am new to IBM DB2 (V8 - Enterprise Edition) but have been a DBA for Oracle for a few years
now. I have some (more than a little but not very much) idea about doing problem diagnosis and
performance tuning using Oracle Statspack, and was familiar with the most frequently
seen Oracle wait events and all.

Is there a tool or solution, similar to Oracle Statspack for DB2? I am not interested in third
party applications. Even pointers to materials that talk about 'performance tuning in DB2
for oracle DBAs' would help greatly.

Thanks a lot,
-V

All the IBM manuals can be downloaded in PDF format at their website. You
need to do a lot of reading, including "DB2 Administration Guide:
Performance"

Thanks for your reply. I was able to find it at
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/ps/produc...r/db2d3e80.pdf

The only thing that is close to Oracle Statspack that I could find here
is "The Control Center". Can the control center be configured to take periodic
snapshots so that the DBA can go back in time to diagnose issues? That was one
thing I like(d) a lot in Statspack.

The governor utility described in Chapter 9, seems like a whole different thing.

Am I in the right track?

The Control Center is just a GUI interface for issuing commands that can
also be issued from the command line.

You probably need to look at DB2 Snapshots (there are many different kinds)
and also the Health Center which can be invoked independently from the
Control Center (or started from the Control Center).

Forgot to mention that the syntax for Snapshots is documented in the Command
Reference manual. I would use an FTP program and download the folder with
all the manuals. The Master Index is very helpful and all the PDF files have
PDF hot links in the manual is in the same PDF file or another PDF file in
the same directory.
