Enroll Request Group Training

Course Overview


This IBM course teaches database administrators how to perform basic database administrative tasks using DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX and Windows. These tasks include creating database objects like tables, indexes and views, and loading data into the database with DB2 utilities like LOAD and INGEST. Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using db2pd command options and monitoring with SQL statements that reference DB2 monitor functions. Instructors will demonstrate ways to cover the locking performed by DB2 and the effect the application isolation level has on locking and lock wait conditions. We will also describe implementing DB2 native encryption for a database.

What You'll Learn

  • Implement automatic archival for database logs
  • Recover a database to a specific point in time using the archived logs
  • Use EXPLAIN tools to review the access plans for SQL statements
  • Add indexes to improve SQL performance.
  • Implement database security, including adding a security administrator and security administration authority (SECADM) user
  • Implement database roles to simplify security management.
