DB2 for z/OS and List Prefetch Optimizer
Information Management

Redpaper, published 26 Jul 2012, last updated 19 Feb 2013

The tight integration that IBM® DB2® for z/OS® has with the IBM System z® architecture and the z/OS environment creates a synergy that allows DB2 to use advanced z/OS platform functions. This synergy includes the enterprise storage systems. DB2 10 for z/OS, available from October 2010, has improved its sequential detection algorithm by introducing the row level sequential detection function. This function helps reduce synchronous I/Os when doing a range scan, and the cluster ratio is less than 100%. DB2 10 for z/OS also introduced the use of list prefetch for disorganized index scans.
