DBA FEATURE REDUCES CPU USAGE AND ELAPSED OPERATING TIME.

SoftBase Systems Inc., Asheville, N.C., a developer of software tools for DB2 mainframes, has announced the patent pending status of its Variable Commit Frequency technology a new feature in the company's oldest and most established software package Database Attach (DBA). In recent tests, the new Variable Commit Frequency feature was responsible for substantial reductions in both CPU usage and elapsed operating time.

"We're very pleased to bring this type of innovation to the mainframe marketplace, said Gary Blair, president and CEO of SoftBase Systems, Inc. It's the culmination of a lot of hard work by our development team and we're excited to see how this new item will help our customers.

The Variable Commit Frequency function within Database Attach allows the COMMIT interval the part of the operation that automatically saves the results of a programming unit of work to be dynamically modified within certain operations in DB2 batch runs. This can lead to greater efficiency during batch processing. In recent internal tests at SoftBase, DBA 4.2 yielded as much as a 61% savings in CPU usage.

In another test by a SoftBase Systems client, DBA 4.2 showed a 92% reduction in elapsed time to run a sample of 500,000 records. That same test also netted a 74% savings in CPU utilization.

As Blair explained, For companies struggling to make a batch window which is a small and well-defined time each day when organizations can update their DB2 mainframes even modest gains in either CPU usage or reductions in clock time can be a lifesaver.

SoftBase Systems has clients worldwide that rely on Database Attach for streamlining their batch applications needs. With its latest release, SoftBase Systems Database Attach 4.2 can be viewed as one of the most encompassing solutions in data management technology on the market today.
