Hi,

Why we need WLM for Stored Procdeure. I mean, WLM is just a load balancing manager.

Rgds,

and DB2 is just a file processing manager. Both statements are about equally true and equally misleading.

WLM can manage initiators (allowing more or fewer jobs into the system), prioritize work load (such as allow online work to have priority over batch), and otherwise manage the various resources of the system. Furthermore, it is not really optional -- one mode or the other, it is running on your system.

Its not always needed.
V7 DB2 had the option to use SPAS instead of WLM.
V9 Db2, if you use native SQL procedure then it doesn't need WLM.
I am not exactly sure why WLM is needed such as, for external host language stored procs. Though WLM certainly has its advantages as Robert mentioned.

Workload Manager is part of z/OS. Whether you use native SQL or not, the address space(s) are being managed by WLM -- always.

True. I guess I should have written WLM-managed-stored-procedure-address-space everytime I said WLM.

In that sense, native SQL procs will not require this separate WLM-managed-stored-procedure-address-space

Since DB2 subsystem started tasks and address spaces are also managed by z/OS WLM, I guess the old DB2 managed stored proc address space(SPAS) was also indirectly managed by WLM although not usually called WLM managed.

If so then the native SQL procs although don't require a separate address space directly managed by WLM, are not entirely independent of WLM. This part has been a bit confusing for me.

Simple rule of thumb: if it is running in an address space on a z machine, WLM is managing it -- because WLM manages all address spaces on the machine.
