DB2 for i5/OS Connection Options

DB2 for i5/OS Connection Options

Use DB2I connection options to define the DB2 for i5/OS connection.
Enter connection options in the following format:
... -o option_name=value option_name=value ...
Separate multiple options with a space. To enter a value that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the value in quotation marks.
The following table describes DB2 for i5/OS connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Database instance name.
Optional. SQL commands to set the database environment when you connect to the database. The Data Integration Service executes the connection environment SQL each time it connects to the database.
Enclose special characters in double quotes.
Required. Code page used to read from a source database or write to a target database or file.
Optional. Determines the number of records in the storage array for the threads when the worker threads value is greater than 0. Valid values are from 1 through 5000. Default is 25.
Optional. Compresses the data to decrease the amount of data to write over the network. Default is false.
Optional. Level of encryption. If you specify AES for the EncryptionType option, specify one of the following values to indicate the level of AES encryption:
  • 1. Use a 128-bit encryption key.
  • 2. Use a 192-bit encryption key.
  • 3. Use a 256-bit encryption key.
Default is 1.
If you specify None for encryption type, the Data Integration Service ignores the encryption level value.
Optional. Controls whether to use encryption. Specify one of the following values:
  • None
  • AES
Default is None.
Optional. Represent pacing size as a number of rows. If false, the pacing size represents kilobytes. Default is false.
Location of the PowerExchange Listener node that can connect to the database. The location is defined in the first parameter of the NODE statement in the PowerExchange dbmover.cfg configuration file.
Optional. Amount of data the source system can pass to the PowerExchange Listener. Configure the pacing size if an external application, a database, or the Data Integration Service node is a bottleneck. The lower the value, the faster the performance.
Minimum value is 0. Enter
for maximum performance. Default is 0.
Optional. Enter the reject file name and path. Reject files contain rows that were not written to the database.
Enter one of the following write modes:
  • CONFIRMWRITEON. Sends data to the PowerExchange Listener and waits for a success/no success response before sending more data.
  • CONFIRMWRITEOFF. Sends data to the PowerExchange Listener without waiting for a success/no success response. Use this option when the target table can be reloaded if an error occurs.
  • ASYNCHRONOUSWITHFAULTT. Sends data to the PowerExchange Listener asynchronously with the ability to detect errors.
Specifies the i5/OS database file override. The format is:
  • from_file
    is the file to be overridden
  • to_library
    is the new library to use
  • to_file
    is the file in the new library to use
  • to_member
    is optional and is the member in the new library and file to use. *FIRST is used if nothing is specified.
You can specify up to 8 unique file overrides on a single connection. A single override applies to a single source or target. When you specify more than one file override, enclose the string of file overrides in double quotes and include a space between each file override.
If both LibraryList and DatabaseFileOverrides are specified and a table exists in both, DatabaseFileOverrides takes precedence.
Commit scope of the transaction. Select one of the following values:
  • None
  • CS. Cursor stability.
  • RR. Repeatable Read.
  • CHG. Change.
  • ALL
Default is CS.
List of libraries that PowerExchange searches to qualify the table name for Select, Insert, Delete, or Update statements. PowerExchange searches the list if the table name is unqualified.
Separate libraries with commas.
If both LibraryList and DatabaseFileOverrides are specified and a table exists in both, DatabaseFileOverrides takes precedence.
Optional. Enables parallel processing when loading data into a table in bulk mode. Used for Oracle. True or false. Default is true.
Optional. Maximum number of idle connections instances that the Data Integration Service maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be more than the minimum number of idle connection instances.
Optional. Number of seconds that a connection exceeding the minimum number of connection instances can remain idle before the connection pool drops it. The connection pool ignores the idletime when it does not exceed the minimum number of idle connection instances.
Optional. Minimum number of idle connection instances that the pool maintains for a database connection. Set this value to be equal to or less than the idle connection pool size. Default is 0.
