These skills can be developed by attending:

  • IMS Physical Organization of Databases Workshop (CM22)
  • IMS Database Performance and Tuning Workshop (CM30)

  • Code the DBDs and PSBs for databases involved in logical relationships, including those using recursive data structures
  • Use IMS utilities to load and reorganize logically related databases
  • Choose logical relationship update rules based upon application processing requirements
  • Identify DBD coding parameters that are critical to the performance of logically related databases
  • Interpret the results of logical relationship implementation choices using the reports provided by the IMS Monitor
