Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All DB2 for z/OS V8 and DB2 9 for z/OS       *
    *                 utility users                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: DB2 Utilities expanding zIIP offload    *
    *                      capability. In conjunction with DFSORT  *
    *                      APAR PK85856, this PTF enables DB2      *
    *                      Utilities to offload portions of sort   *
    *                      workload to zIIPs when they are         *
    *                      available.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply PTF when available                     *
    ****************************************************************
    DB2 Utilities will invoke DFSORT when sorting fixed length
    records in a way that will allow offload to zIIP processors
    if DFSORT selects the memory object sort path. When this
    additional zIIP offload takes place, it will be indicated by
    DFSORT with MSGICE256I DFSORT CODE IS ELIGIBLE TO USE ZIIP FOR
    THIS DB2 UTILITY RUN.
    This enhancement requires DFSORT APAR PK85856. If PK85856 is not
    applied then the enhancement delivered by this APAR is not
    enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • Code has been changed in DB2 to allow DFSORT to offload certain
    workloads to zIIP processors when available.
