IBM SPECIAL DELIVERY REQUIRED COURSE: This ISDR course cannot be scheduled without IBM approval. If interested in this course, please contact your Local training Administrator.Learn how to successfully implement and tune Information Management System (IMS) databases with IMS logical relationships. Examine in detail the various pointer options. Practice these skills in intensive machine-lab exercises.
You should have at least four months of experience using IMS and should be able to: Use TSO/ISPF or PDF Demonstrate basic knowledge of: OS/VS Job Control Language VSAM access methods service utilities DL/I application programming techniques Describe the characteristics and storage format of HISAM, HIDAM and HDAM databases and code their DBDs Understand the IMS DB Monitor and use its reports to resolve database performance concerns These skills can be developed by attending: IMS Physical Organization of Databases Workshop (CM22) IMS Database Performance and Tuning Workshop (CM30)
