Key Metrics for DB2 for z/OS Subsystem and Application Performance Monitoring (Part 1 and Part 2)

Robert Catterall - IBM


Monitoring tools and various DISPLAY commands make available to you a dizzying array of informational items pertaining to the performance

of an IBM DB2 for z/OS subsystem and of applications that access DB2. You can wade through all that information or focus on the handful of

metrics that will enable you to efficiently and effectively assess DB2 performance in your particular environment. Drawing on over 25

years of experience in analyzing and using information in monitor reports and displays, and in DB2 command output, I'll describe in this

two-part presentation the fields that contain the highest-value information and how to use it.


Robert Catterall works for IBM as a Senior Consulting DB2 for z/OS specialist. He started his IT career with IBM in 1982, and worked

throughout the 1990s as a member of the Company's DB2 for z/OS National Technical Support team. From 2000 to 2007, Robert worked as a

database technology strategist for CheckFree (now part of Fiserv). After working for three years as an independent DB2 consultant, he

rejoined IBM in 2010. Robert is a past President of IDUG, and a member of IDUG's Speakers Hall of Fame. He presents frequently at conferences,

and blogs about DB2 for z/OS at
