CE23: SQL Replication Advanced Topics

Code: CE23
Duration: 2 days


This course will provide you the ability to use advanced functions of DB2 SQL replication such as the Command Line Processor, Signal table usage, the general trace facility, and alert monitoring. In addition, you will learn the basic operations of the Capture, Apply, and Monitor components, including details of their use of control tables. This course also includes special techniques which can be used to solve replication requirements more complex than those that can be implemented using the functions and techniques presented in CE22, Using SQL Replication. It also provides basic skills in problem determination and performance tuning.

The course includes lectures and several intensive hands-on machine exercises with DB2 SQL replication components: Capture, Apply, Monitor, and the Replication Center. The machine exercises will be performed using the DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows on a Windows workstation, but the skills developed from these exercises are also applicable to the DB2 for z/OS environment.


Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Use the command line processor, asnclp, to create control tables, register source tables, and create subscriptions
  • Explain DB2 SQL Replication control tables
  • Describe details of selected Capture, Apply, and administration functional processes
  • Explain representative techniques for accomplishing desired replication administration tasks beyond the basic operations of Apply and Capture
  • Use DB2 SQL Replication problem determination facilities
  • Relate basic performance considerations for Replication operations


Personnel who administer DB2 SQL replication applications including designing and implementing complex replication solutions. This includes DB2 Database Administrators, programmers, and IBM professionals.


Before taking this course, you should have a working knowledge of the basic usage of DB2 SQL replication and the Replication Center. Performing the lab exercises will be easier if you have usage skills with workstation hardware, Windows desktop functions, and SQL.

These skills could be obtained by completing the course CE22, Using SQL Replication, plus some on-the-job usage of DB2 SQL Replication and Replication Center to define and manage replication objects.
