2475968 - How to see boundary values used by a partition - Data Assurance


  • When running very high-performance environment, it uses a high number of Data Assurance (DA) partitions (256). 
  • The data is unevenly distributed.
  • While most partitions run quickly, there are the odd couple that are very slow since the DA partitions SQL picks up a larger proportion of the table's rows.
  • There needs to be a way to see what SQL / boundary DA used for those "large" partitions, so compareset can be adjusted to avoid that data via the custom where clause.
  • Then create a separate job to cover that data range.
  • Since DA boundary data is always updated after each comparison run, it's not enough to simply run "show boundary".
  • The new optimised partition generation for DA 16.0 also makes it harder to see which boundaries are being used when the comparison runs, since it's choosing a subset of boundary data based on how that data varies across all samples.

 Could a new command be implemented to show the SQL being run by a particular partition? Or extend one of the existing commands (e.g. monitor <job> <cmp>) to show the 1 or 2 boundaries being used for a given partition?
