Getting the most out of Db2 for z/OS Statistics and Accounting Reports
Mark Rader, IBM

Abstract:
Statistics and accounting reports generated by a Db2 for z/OS performance monitor provide a dizzying array of information about the activity of a Db2 subsystem and of applications that access that subsystem.  You can wade through all that information yourself.  Or you can focus on a handful of metrics that will enable you to effectively assess Db2 performance in your specific environment.  This session draws on many years of experience in analyzing and using information in Db2 monitor statistics and accounting reports to describe the highest-value fields and how to use them.
