A license activation kit for InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner, Version 4.1.1 This kit allows you to activate the full set of features for tuning query workloads and single SQL statements. This activation is required once only. One person installs the license activation kit together with the Data Studio client, Version 4.1.1.



创表超过4k大小的表 4k的pagesize之后容许overflow后找不到8k pagesize会报错。

9.column-orgnized talbe压缩:

Actionable compression


Queries using the RR or RS isolation level are not supported with column-organized tables.

Currently Committed可以使用



The number of times an attempt to queue a column-organized prefetch request for temporary table spaces was made but failed.

One possible reason is the prefetch queue is full and a request could not be obtained from the free list.


注: 在 DB2® V10.5 中,由于 列组织 临时表当前不受支持,因而此元素返回 0。

12.rolling FixPack update for DB2 pureScale

db2iupdt -commit_level

db2iupdt -commit_level

	Commits the pureScale instance to a new level of code. This parameter is mandatory in DB2 pureScale environments.

	This parameter is used to update the interconnect netnames used by the CF or member. To update the netname of a member or CF, the instance can be running but the specific target member or specific target CF must be stopped. The db2iupdt -update command must be run from the target CF or target member.

13.DB2 Advanced Copy Services(ACS) scripts用于:

To perform snapshot backup and restore operations on storage devices that do not have a DB2 ACS API vendor library.

14.HADR for DB2 v10.5 pureScale


The HADR synchronization modes SYNC and NEARSYNC are not supported. You must specify either the ASYNC or SUPERASYNC option for the hadr_syncmode configuration parameter.

15.EHL for DB2 v10.5 pureScale


缺省情况下,未在 DB2 pureScale 环境中启用 EHL。但是,可通过使用 opt_direct_wrkld 数据库配置参数来启用或禁用 EHL。


不适用于 系统目录表:通常不在成员之间共享的表,例如,临时表

EHL is designed to improve DB2 pureScale performance by avoiding CF communications for tables that are accessed from only one member.

16.column-organized table 执行会fail的动作

Setting the AUTO_RUNSTATS database configuration parameter to ON

17.expression-based indexes true的:



18.which type of database are column-organized tables supported

C. Databases whose code set is Unicode.


20.列组织表的Space reclamation

All rows in the extent where the update took place must be deleted before any space reclamation can occur.

After all rows in an extent where updates took place have been deleted.


1.Set the EXPLAIN mode on by using the CURRENT EXPLAIN MODE special register as follows:


2.Issue your query against column-organized tables.

3.Issue the db2exfmt command to format the contents of the explain tables and obtain the access plan. The following example shows you how to use this command against the SAMPLE database:

db2exfmt -d sample -1 -o output.exfmt

22.pureScale STMM

DB2 pureScale now allows per-member STMM tuning

INSTANCE_MEMORY DBM parm - per member setting

STMM does not control CF memory

STMM can manage same member memory pools as with DB2 ESE

Prior to DB2 10.5 – One member (known as the tuning member) monitors member STMM memory configuration and propagates real-time changes to all other members – When the tuning member is specified as -1, the tuning member is randomly selected every time the database is activated – If the member on which the tuner is running deactivates, the tuner will automatically start on another member – In order for a member to run the tuner, the database must be active on that member and that member must have self_tuning_mem set to ON

DB2 10.5

– STMM can tune every member independently
– Default setting


section_exec_with_col_references -“具有按列组织的引用的节执行”监视元素

24.staticstics use profile / Load

STATISTICS USE PROFILE Instructs load to collect statistics during the load according to the profile defined for this table. This is the default for column-organized tables. The profile must be created before issuing the LOAD command. The profile is created by the RUNSTATS command. For row-organized tables, if the profile does not exist and this parameter is specified, a warning is returned and no statistics are collected. For column-organized tables, if the profile does not exist and this parameter is specified, the load utility uses the same default RUNSTATS command options as those that are used during an automatic runstats operation.

During load, distribution statistics are not collected for columns of type XML.


DB2 环境以便启用 Oracle 应用程序


  1. HADR for pureScale的switch 什么情况下可以takeover:

You can only perform a role switch between the primary and standby databases if the databases are in one of the following states (for DB2® pureScale® environments, if every stream meets one of these conditions):

peer state
remote catchup state, when the synchronization mode is SUPERASYNC
assisted remote catchup state (DB2 pureScale environments only)

同步方式为 SUPERASYNC 时的远程同步复制状态
受助远程同步复制状态(仅限 DB2 pureScale 环境)


什么表可以通过db2convert来转换为 column-organized 表

You cannot convert the following table types into column-organized tables:

Range clustered tables

Typed tables

Materialized query tables

Declared global temporary tables

Created global temporary tables

Important: Range partitioned tables, MDC tables, and ITC tables are not converted by default. To convert these table types, use the -force option.


Specifies that all table types are to be converted, including range partitioned tables, multidimensional clustering (MDC) tables, and insert time clustering (ITC) tables.

db2convert - Convert row-organized tables into column-organized tables

Converts one or all row-organized user tables in a specified database into column-organized tables. The row-organized tables remain online during command processing. For monitoring purposes, the command displays statistics about the conversion.

28.关于NOT ENFORCED unique constraints的描述:

29.DB2 Storage Optimization Feature的压缩type:

backup compression for all db2 edition

30.intraquery parallelism:

All DML operations that reference column-organized tables

The ALTER TABLE ADD UNIQUE / PRIMARY KEY CONSTRAINT statement against a column-organized table if rows were inserted into the table

The RUNSTATS command against a column-organized table

The LOAD command against a column-organized table

空表加primary key约束就不需要
