Db2 11.1 Quickstart for Experienced Relational DBAs SPVC (2L487G-SPVC)

This course teaches you to perform, basic and advanced, database administrative tasks using Db2 11.1. These tasks include creating and populating databases and implementing a logical design to support recovery requirements. The access strategies selected by the Db2 Optimizer will be examined using the Db2 Explain tools. Various diagnostic methods will be presented, including using various db2pd command options. Students will learn how to implement automatic archival for database logs and how to plan a redirected database restore to relocate either selected table spaces or an entire database. The REBUILD option of RESTORE, which can build a database copy with a subset of the tablespaces, will be discussed. We will also cover using the TRANSPORT option of RESTORE to copy schemas of objects between two Db2 databases. The selection of indexes to improve application performance and the use of SQL statements to track database performance and health will be covered. This course provides a quick start to Db2 database administration skills for experienced relational Database Administrators (DBA).

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

very knowledgeable; presented in a interesting format; good insight into aws

I received a link for automated set up. I do not like automated set up links since there's always a chance of compromise.

well organized and designed course. Tommy is good teacher and answer our all the questions

Well-executed course. I had to wait for the last minute to register for the course because of my org – their staff contacted me to ensure that I had a webcam and headset because they wouldn't be able to send me that in time for the start of class the next morning. They overnighted the webcam and headset and it arrived in the afternoon. It was not necessary but very much appreciated! The course was great and the instructor was a pro!

Structured training in a great environment with knowledgeable and patient instructor
