Many years ago I did a session on survival tips for DBAs. This presentation is all new tools that I have been using the last two years to make my life easier in the Db2 for LUW world. I have run into many situations where I needed to diagnose why a developer was having trouble to connect to a data or even why a database administration tool could not connect which is why I want to share several ways to test connectivity. I have also needed on numerous occasions to extract DDL for some type of object, permission information or statistics. db2look has numerous options to help a DBA with setting up new environments. I have discovered new functionality with other tools like R packages, db2pd and db2fmtlog that come in handy.
Objective 1: Connectivity testing using Python, Powershell tnc, ncat, tcp and other tools
Objective 2: The many uses of db2look
Objective 3: The amazing db2pd utility tool
Objective 4: Use MONREPORT to identify potential performance issues
Objective 4: Using db2batch for hard performance problems
Objective 6: How to use the package cache event monitors
