With the pressures to drive transaction processing 24/7 because of online banking and other business demands, IBM® zHyperLink on the IBM DS8880 is making it easy to accelerate transaction processing for the mainframe. This IBM RedpaperTM publication helps you to understand the concepts, business perspectives, and reference architecture of installing, tailoring, and configuring zHyperLink in your own environment.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides both introductory information and technical details about the IBM System z® Personal Development Tool (IBM zPDT®), which produces a small System z environment suitable for application development. zPDT is a PC Linux application. When zPDT is installed (on Linux), normal System z operating systems (such as IBM z/OS®) can be run on it. zPDT provides the basic System z architecture and emulated IBM 3390 disk drives, 3270 interfaces, OSA interfaces, and so on. The systems that are discussed in this document are complex. They have elements of Linux (for the underlying PC machine), IBM z/Architecture® (for the core zPDT elements), System z I/O functions (for emulated I/O devices), z/OS (the most common System z operating system), and various applications and subsystems under z/OS. The reader is assumed to be familiar with general concepts and terminology of System z hardware and software elements, and with basic PC Linux characteristics. This book provides the primary documentation for zPDT.
This IBM® RedpaperTM publication addresses IBM Patterns for Cognitive Systems topics to anyone developing, implementing, and using Cognitive Solutions on IBM Power SystemsTM servers. Moreover, this publication provides documentation to transfer the knowledge to the sales and technical teams. This publication describes IBM Patterns for Cognitive Systems. Think of a pattern as a use case for a specific scenario, such as event-based real-time marketing for real-time analytics, anti-money laundering, and addressing data oceans by reducing the cost of Hadoop. These examples are just a few of the cognitive patterns that are now available. Patterns identify and address challenges for cognitive infrastructures. These entry points then help you understand where you are on the cognitive journey and enables IBM to demonstrate the set of solutions capabilities for each lifecycle stage. This book targets technical readers, including IT specialist, systems architects, data scientists, developers, and anyone looking for a guide about how to unleash the cognitive capabilities of IBM Power Systems by using patterns.
This IBM® RedpaperTM publication provides key information about continuous delivery in IBM Db2® 12 for z/OS®. It discusses how continuous delivery works and the changes that have been made in Db2 12 to support continuous delivery, such as adding a new catalog table and changing existing catalog tables. Also the paper covers the effects on applications and how to take advantage of new function provided using the continuous delivery model.
This IBM® Redbooks® publication helps you install, configure, and use the IBM z/OS® Management Facility (z/OSMF). z/OSMF is a product for z/OS that simplifies, optimizes, and modernizes the z/OS system programmer experience. z/OSMF delivers solutions in a task-oriented, web browser-based user interface with integrated user assistance. The goal of z/OSMF is to improve system programmer productivity, and make functions easier to understand and use. This improvement makes system programmers more productive as quickly as possible with the least amount of training. You can automate tasks, reduce the learning curve, and improve productivity through a modern, simplified, and intuitive task-based...
This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides information about the IBM System z® HiperSocketsTM function. It offers a broad description of the architecture, functions, and operating systems support. This publication will help you plan and implement HiperSockets. It provides information about the definitions needed to configure HiperSockets for the supported operating systems. This book is intended for system programmers, network planners, and systems engineers who want to plan and install HiperSockets. A solid background in network and Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is assumed.
In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we present guidelines for the development of highly efficient and scalable information integration applications with InfoSphereTM DataStage® (DS) parallel jobs. InfoSphere DataStage is at the core of IBM Information Server, providing components that yield a high degree of freedom. For any particular problem there might be multiple solutions, which tend to be influenced by personal preferences, background, and previous experience. All too often, those solutions yield less than optimal, and non-scalable, implementations. This book includes a comprehensive detailed description of the components available, and descriptions on how to use them to obtain scalable and efficient solutions, for both batch and real-time scenarios. The advice provided in this document is the result of the combined proven experience from a number of expert practitioners in the field of high performance information integration, evolved over several years. This book is intended for IT architects, Information Management specialists, and Information Integration specialists responsible for delivering cost-effective IBM InfoSphere DataStage performance on all platforms.
The scope of this IBM® RedpaperTM publication is to provide a high-level overview of automatic storage table spaces, table space maps, table space extent maps, and physically unbalanced data across automatic storage table space containers (that is, data skew). The objective of this paper is to investigate causes of data skew and make suggestions for how to resolve it. This paper is for Database Administrators (DBAs) of IBM Db2®; the DBAs should have general Db2 knowledge and skills. The environment used for the creation of this document is Db2 Version 11.1, and an IBM AIX® operating system. This document is based on results of testing various scenarios.
This IBM Redbooks publication describes the fundamental concepts and benefits of message queuing technology. This book is an update of a very popular Redpaper (REDP-0021) based on IBM WebSphere MQ Versions 5.0 to 5.2. This publication provides a design-level overview and technical introduction for the established and reliable WebSphere MQ product. A broad technical understanding of the WebSphere MQ product can improve design and implementation decisions for WebSphere MQ infrastructures and applications. To reduce the time required to gain this understanding, this book summarizes relevant information from across the WebSphere MQ product documentation. We also include hands-on security and troubleshooting sections to aid understanding and provide a reference for common administrative actions performed when building and maintaining WebSphere MQ infrastructures. In the appendix, we provide a summary of the new features in WebSphere MQ Version 6.0.
