DB2 Load testing directly

Post by Natarajan.in » Fri Mar 02, 2018 8:52 am

Hi, We have a requirement to generate load directly to DB2 instead of going thru CICS app. We are planning to do this via JDBC. However we heard that all jdbc calls will be directed to ZIIP processor but CICS goes thru General processor.

I believe this makes a huge difference in response time.

Any idea on how to mitigate this (can we disable ZIIP so that all JDBC calls go thru General ?)? Or Any workaround for load testing DB2 directly apart from JDBC ?
