Performance and Scalability of a Large OLTP Workload With DB2 9 for System z on Linux
This paper demonstrates data server scalability for DB2 9 running on IBM System z with Linux. It captures the best practices for deploying IBM DB2 9 for mission critical OnLine Transaction Processing (OLTP) workloads in their product environment. IBM System z technologies offer a rich set of platform-deployment features ranging from well-known mainframe attributes such as reliability, availability, scalability, and security to features like the very high capacity and bandwidth of the I/O subsystem. DB2 9, a leading data server in the information management market, offers rich value added capabilities to help customers meet their transaction processing demands.
