SmartDBA System Performance for DB2.

BMC have announced the integration of mainframe databases into the company's SmartDBA console with the introduction of SmartDBA System Performance for DB2, enabling customers to manage mainframe and distributed enterprise databases including Oracle, Sybase and SQL Server from one Web-based console. New distributed and mainframe data management products include:

* Database Administration for DB2 V2.1 featuring worklist parallelism, which increases application availability by reducing the execution time required for batch maintenance processes by driving multiple parallel processes within a single subsystem or distributed across multiple systems in a data sharing environment. Workloads can be dynamically distributed across these systems, allowing for workload balancing and allowing customers to take advantage of under-utilised systems

* Database Administration for DB2 v2.2 breaks the 32K size barrier for managing large binary objects (LOBs), making it easier to manage applications containing large objects, such as videos or pictures, that are often impossible to manage because of their data size. and type. Available in January 2004, this solution treats LOBs as any other DB2 object, automating change and migration processes that previously required special application programs. Users may now migrate application structures across DB2 subsystems automatically, including LOBs larger than 32K.

* Application Performance for DB2 V2.1 provides a number of improvements in performance and usability for the DB2 environment including improved efficiency in collecting DB2 performance data.

* SmartDBA Performance Solution for DB2 UDB, V2.6 is a Web-based solution for DBAs to detect, diagnose and correct database performance issues. Featuring database administration, database monitoring, SQL tuning and space management facilities, SmartDBA for DB2 UDD provides DBAs with the functionality needed to manage DB2 UDB database environments.. This latest version now features support for DB2 UDB 64-bit environments, integration with IBUs Online Reorganisation utility and improved administration capabilities including extended database search functionality and fonnatting and colour coding of SQL text.
