5. Database software product information
Product Tested: IBM DB2 Express v8.1 with Fix pack5
Part 1: Adaptec Snap Server 4500 configuration
1. Basic configuration
Configure the Adaptec Snap Server 4500 using its web
browser-based management interface.
When the Adaptec Snap Server 4500 is on the network, the Initialization wizard opens. Use the Initialization wizard to set all basic parameters such as IP
address, Password, etc.
After completing the basic parameters setup, you can
use the management browser at any time to manage
the Snap Server 4500.
2. Creating a RAID storage pool and an iSCSI target
This procedure requires that name resolution services
(via WINS or an equivalent service) be operational.
1. Find the server name. The default server name is
“Snapnnnnnn” where “nnnnnn” is the server number.
For example, the name of a Snap Server with a server
number of 405442 is Snap405442. The server number
is a unique, numeric string that appears on a label
affixed to the inside of your Snap Server. To view the
label, remove the front bezel.
Management Software: Adaptec Storage Manager
Version: v1.1 build 32
Storage Pool:
- One RAID 0+1 consisting of all 4 hard drives, it has
pool size 467 GB.
Configured iSCSI Target:
- TARGET1 – 200GB of the RAID 0+1 (used by DB2
Express 8.1 Server)
(Note: The drive E: is iSCSI target drive on the server
running DB2).
4. Switch information
Ethernet Switch Vendor: Allied Telesyn
Ethernet speed: Gigabit
Model: AT-9410GB
Firmware version: 1.01
Management Ethernet port info : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
- Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
- Router: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
- DHCP Mode: Disabled
Login into the Snap Server 4500 unit under test and
create a RAID 0, RAID 1 or Raid 5 storage pool with
the available three or four physical drives. Then create
an iSCSI target with 200GB from this pool for the
DB2 information store. Make sure the iSCSI target has
unrestricted access control.
Please refer to the Snap Server 4500 User’s Guide if
you need more information.
2. To access the Snap Server management interface,
open a web browser and enter the following URL:
http://Snapnnnnnn or IP address (Snapnnnnnn server
number can also be used).

occurred.
6. TPC-H test
The TPC Benchmark™H (TPC-H) is a decision support benchmark consisting of a suite of business-oriented adhoc queries and concurrent data modifications. The queries and the data populating the database are chosen to
have broad industry-wide relevance. This benchmark illustrates decision support systems that examine large volumes of data, execute queries with a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business questions.
The performance metric reported by TPC-H is called the TPC-H Composite Query-per-Hour Performance Metric
([email protected]), and reflects multiple aspects of the capability of the system to process queries, including:
• The selected database size against which the queries are executed.
• The query processing power when queries are submitted by a single stream.
• The query throughput when queries are submitted by multiple concurrent users.
The TPC-H Price/Performance metric is expressed as [email protected]
A. TPC-H pre-requirement
1. Install Perl for windows “ActivePerl-5.8.3.809-MSWin32-x86.msi” or download from following link:
http://www.activestate.com/Products/Download/Download.plex?id=ActivePerl
2. Install Visual C++ 6.0
3. Unzip the tpcd.zip to C:\TPCD
Note: Set /PAE Switch in “boot.ini”
The TPC-H benchmark results are based on database tuning and system tuning. If the system memory exceeds
4GB (the standard x86 limit), you must set /PAE switch in “boot.ini.”

Instructions
1. The 'LARGEFILES' table needs to be created in the
DB2 database for the LOB application to run. Use the
largefiles.db2 script and the IBM DB2 Command Center to create the table. (step 2)
2. In the largefiles.db2 script the CREATE TABLE
command currently creates the table in the ME
schema. You need to update the script to create the
table in your own schema. For example:
CREATE TABLE MYSCHEMA.LARGEFILES .....
would create the LARGEFILES table in MYSCHEMA.
Make the update and save the largefiles.db2 script. You
can also change the name of the database in the first
line if you want.
4. Run the LOB utility using the following syntax:
LOB [db_alias] [username/schema name] [password] [src
directory]
db_alias - name of the database instance which the
LARGEFILES table is on.
username - the name of the user to use, recommend
using the schema name so no security problems exist.
password - the password of user
src directory - the directory on the local filesystem
which has the files to upload and compare. The max
file size is 50MB, anything bigger will fail.
Example: LOB DB1 user1 password c:\test
3. Import the script into DB2 Command center and
execute it to build the table.
