DB2 11.1 Administration Workshop for Linux, UNIX, and Windows

Learn database administrative tasks using DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.

GK# 5645 Vendor# CL206G

Course Overview


In this course, you will learn how to perform basic database administrative tasks using DB2 11.1 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. You will learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to recover a database to a specific point in time using the archived logs. The course covers using EXPLAIN tools to review the access plans for SQL statements, adding indexes to improve SQL performance. We will cover the locking performed by DB2 and the effect the application isolation level has on locking and lock wait conditions. Additionally, you will learn how to implement database security including adding a security administrator and a SECADM user. You will also learn how to implement database roles to simplify security management as well as DB2 native encryption for a database. 

The demonstrations and exercises are performed using DB2 LUW 11.1 for Linux. For some lab tasks, you will have the option to complete the task using a DB2 command line processor or use the graphical interface provided by IBM Data Server Manager. 

A self-paced version of this course is also available (2L206G).
