2. Optimizing DB2 Access

When accessing DB2 tables with static SQL, a PLAN is created and this PLAN has several options you can configure. Making the right decisions is important.

  • Running DB2 utilities frequently keeps DB2 databases “lean” and fast.

  • Configuring DB2 system parameters can greatly influence performance and parallel processing with the database.

  • Choosing the correct checkpoint frequency and commit scope should be a key aspect in any DB2 application design.

  • When using Java, additional design and configuration decisions have to be made. The Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) drivers have additional configuration options.
