The Essential Guide to DB2 Package Clean Up for Optimal IBM Mainframe Performance

Attention all IBM Mainframe users! Are you experiencing slow performance in your DB2 system? Have you considered cleaning up your DB2 packages? If not, then you should! This could be one of the best things you can do for optimal performance.

Invalid or non-operational DB2 plans or packages are a hindrance to your system’s performance. It’s important to regularly clean them up. But that’s not all. You should also take a closer look at your application’s plans and packages to see if any incremental binds or re-optimization of variables are happening during the running of your applications. This can have a significant impact on your system’s performance and should be avoided, especially in busy environments or data sharing environments where acquiring locks on objects for incremental binds or re-optimization of variables can be time-consuming and expensive.

Now, you might be thinking, “This sounds like a lot of work.” And it can be if you don’t have the right tools. But fear not! There’s an easier way to accomplish this task quickly and inexpensively. Critical Path Software has a risk-free product called TurboTuneSQL that can help you to analyze your DB2 packages and plans.

With TurboTuneSQL, you can easily identify invalid or non-operational DB2 packages and plans that need to be cleaned up. Additionally, the tool can also help you detect any incremental binds or re-optimization of variables happening during application runs. Even better, it provides recommendations on how to resolve these issues to optimize your system’s performance.

Don’t let invalid or non-operational DB2 packages or plans slow down your IBM Mainframe system. Take action today by requesting instructions for an immediate analysis using TurboTuneSQL. With this tool, you’ll be on your way to a cleaner and more optimized DB2 system in no time!
