In September, Kevin See and I published a how-to article on IBM’s popular developerWorks community website. The article describes the new SQL-based Administrative Task Scheduler that was introduced in DB2 9.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
If you’re looking for an alternative to the Task Center, the Administrative Task Scheduler provides an easy way to automate database administration tasks. Best of all, it uses a programmable SQL interface that enables you to build your own scripts and applications.
The article is titled “Use the SQL-based Administrative Task Scheduler in DB2 9.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows”.
More detailed information about the Administrative Task Scheduler is always available in the DB2 9.5 Information Center.
