I do not have access to PLAN_TABLE hence unable to get the explain details.
You should be able to get this info with help from a DBA or other support person. . .

You might ask them what other monitoring tools are installed on the system.

At the top of the page is a link to "IBM Manuals".

Go there and search (the yellow tubelight/flashlight) for the PERFORM info.

If you find something that you do not understand, post what you found and your doubt. Someone here should be able to help.

What is shown by an EXPLAIN?

What is meant by "longer time"?

Has some change been made that has caused the performance issue?

Did it ever work properly with full volume?

Please start a new topic with a proper subject (do not just say "rexx help".

Most of these things are not specified in an internal Sort.

How many records or what size are being sorted?

How much sort work has been specified?

The internal sort provided some informational / diagnostic information whan it ran. Posting this output may help us help you.

Work with somone who knows db2 on the mainframe to select the data you want to load kinto the spreadsheet(s).
Create a data-delimited file on the mainframe (i prefer the tab character - x'05').
When downloaded to the pc, it will import directly into Excel.
