Reply with quote

Hi,

I had earlier read that LOAD REPLACE with DUMMY works faster as compared to DELETE * from table incase the volume of data is very large.

In our shop(with 300+ tablespaces with each tablespace housing one table), DELETE * from table was earlier being used. To improve the performance, I tried to use a LOAD REPLACE with DUMMY but to my surprise the job ran at a much slower speed than what it earlier used to run with. I ran the original job (the one with DELETE * from table) and the one with my changes (LOAD REPLACE with DUMMY) in parallel on two different databases. The original job completed in 8 minutes whereas the one with my changes finished in 35 minutes.

Here is one of the LOAD statements that I provided in SYSIN:
Code:
LOAD DATA REPLACE LOG NO INDDN SYSREC00 NOCOPYPEND INTO TABLE ABC.TABLE1;
                                   


Can anyone please help me understand why the performance must have degraded ?

Thanks in advance !

Which version of DB2 you are using?
If DB2 v9, you can use TRUNCATE statement.

If you insist on using LOAD REPLACE with DUMMY , perhaps you should put the log of your loading job here. We can analyse the performance issue from the log.

just a guess : check your DSNDBD VSAMs

Maybe LOAD REPLACE cleans up your VSAM (extents, extra VSAMS) and delete * doesn't.
