DB2 for z/OS Connection Options

DB2 for z/OS Connection Options

Use DB2Z connection options to define the IBM for DB2 z/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 DB2Z connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Connection string used to access data from the database.
<database 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. Label to apply to a DB2 task or query to allow DB2 for z/OS to account for the resource. Enter up to 8 bytes of alphanumeric characters.
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 node is defined in the PowerExchange dbmover.cfg configuration file.
Optional. Moves bulk data processing from the VSAM source to the Data Integration Service machine.
Enter one of the following values:
  • Auto. The Data Integration Service determines whether to use offload processing.
  • Yes. Use offload processing.
  • No. Do not use offload processing.
Default is Auto.
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.
Optional. Number of threads that the Data Integration Service uses to process bulk data when offload processing is enabled. For optimal performance, this value should not exceed the number of available processors on the Data Integration Service machine. Valid values are 1 through 64. Default is 0, which disables multithreading.
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.
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.
