Abstract: Using IBM DB2 Universal Database and DB2 Warehouse Manager provides a central point of control for managing data sources, including processes for building and populating data warehouses (or datamarts). The objective of this IBM Redbooks publication is to deliver guidelines for building a High Availability DB2 warehouse environment and to assist with problem determination when using DB2 Warehouse Manager. This book will help you to understand the DB2 Warehouse Manager architecture and components, and to cope with system failures and their consequences. It also provides a set of documentation on the different High Availability techniques you can use when facing database, server, or disk failures. The book discusses a problem determination methodology that takes a customer through various unplanned outages. We explain how to proceed when a problem occurs, how to do problem determination and problem source identification, and how to fix the problem. Included are many helpful hints and tips on warehouse application and performance issues.
