  9. Business Goals • 1. Allocate limited resources among multiple business units • 2. Change resource allocation on a schedule according to day of month • 3. Protect against extremely high cost inefficient queries • 4. Prevent excessive concurrency of large queries from monopolizing the system

  10. WLM Implementation • WLM in DB2 9.5 • Part of the database engine • Define work categories by application, user group, user ID • Define execution environments and route work categories to its execution environments (DB2 service classes and AIX service classes) • Control and monitor execution environments via thresholds. • BMO WLM configuration • Work categories (with different WLM controls) • One category per business unit (so can control each one separately) • Controls per work category: • Set a target number of CPU shares per group (for Goal 1) • Increase CPU share for a business unit on days when it has high priority reports (for Goal 2) • Database-wide controls: • Set a threshold to stop requests that exceed a very high estimated cost (for Goal 3) • Set a concurrency limit on large queries (for Goal 4)

  11. Other Points • Strong relationship between WLM and Monitoring • Business not aware of resource consumption by different dimensions: • Time hierarchy • Application and application hierarchy including ad-hoc vs pre-defined work, data mining tools vs reporting • User and user hierarchy including roll up by business unit • Workload complexity • Need to understand resource usage patterns • Collect and analyze data for optimization opportunities • Collect and analyze data for capacity planning and forecasting
