Course Description


This course is designed to prepare DB2 Linux, UNIX and Windows database administrators for planning, installing, managing and monitoring a DB2 pureScale database system. This course covers the features and functions of the DB2 pureScale feature for DB2 10.5, including fixpack levels 4 and 5. This is a lecture-only course.


  • List the basic components and functions in a DB2 pureScale database system, including DB2 Cluster Services and GPFS file systems
  • Describe the types of information managed in the Cluster Caching Facility (CF) for a DB2 pureScale database
  • Explain how page reads utilize local buffer pools on a member as well as the global buffer pool on the CF
  • Describe the workload balancing and automatic client routing options used for application connections to a pureScale database
  • Describe the use of local and global locking to support application concurrency in a DB2 pureScale database
  • List the components that interact with DB2 Cluster Services to manage cluster availability
  • Use db2start and db2stop commands to manage the components of a DB2 pureScale cluster
  • Examine the db2instance command report to check the current status of the pureScale cluster
  • Configure database manager and database member options for a DB2 pureScale cluster
  • Choose the cluster interconnect network options for the pureScale cluster
  • Estimate Cluster Caching Facility (CF) CPU and memory resources that will be needed to support your databases in the cluster
  • Perform an installation of DB2 pureScale creating a DB2 instance and configuring the cluster hosts
  • List and describe the steps required to migrate an existing non-pureScale database system to a DB2 10.5 pureScale cluster
  • Select the best method to migrate any non-automatic storage table spaces into automatic storage table spaces based on the application requirements and current database structure
  • Plan for online or offline database BACKUP for a DB2 pureScale database
  • Use the RESTORE utility or the RECOVER DATABASE command to perform database recovery or to make a database copy for a pureScale database
  • Plan and implement High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) for a DB2 pureScale database
  • Describe how a DB2 pureScale cluster handles failures of members
  • Explain how the DB2 Cluster Services component detects various cluster problems like network failures or shared file system issues
  • Create a new DB2 pureScale database using GPFS based file systems
  • Use the db2cluster command to add and drop disk devices with DB2 managed GPFS file systems
  • Monitor application activity in a DB2 pureScale database cluster
  • Utilize db2pd commands to display Cluster Caching Facility memory allocations and connection pool information
  • Use the db2instance and db2cluster commands to show the current status and alter information for database members and cluster hosts
  • Explain the states shown in the db2instance –list report for pureScale members, hosts and CFs
  • Locate the various message logs for the DB2 instance, GPFS and TSA
  • Use the db2cluster command to list and clear active alerts
  • Implement transaction-level workload balancing for application client systems to improve cluster resource usage
  • Set DB2 client options for non-Java applications in the db2dsdriver.cfg file
  • Configure client affinity for application systems that need to control connections to specific database member host systems
  • Explain how member subsets can be used to manage how an application views the topology of the pureScale database environment
