The CC is shown below. You should be able to easily use this tool, as it is similar tomany other interfaces in the marketplace; objects are on the left and details of thoseobjects are on the right.Notice the database dashboard that appears when you connect to a database. Thisprovides DBAs with a one-stop location to quickly view the health of their DB2databases. For example, in the previous figure you can see that no databasebackups exist for this database, and automated maintenance is only partiallyenabled. There is no information for the other categories that could either imply I'vedisabled them, or DB2 has not yet had time to return information on those objects.To see everything that you can do with the CC, right-click on any object from theobject tree. A pop-up menu shows all the functions you can perform on a selectedobject. For example, on theTablesfolder, you can create a new table (you can alsocreate a table from anIMPORToperation), create a filter for what is displayed in thecontents pane, or refresh the view. The tasks that you can perform depend on theobject that you select. I strongly recommend that you go through each folder andobject and right-click your way to familiarity.The CC lets you customize what is displayed in the navigation tree for a more simpleview, or a customized view. The figure below gives an example of this process.developerWorks®ibm.com/developerWorksDB2 planningTrademarks© Copyright IBM Corporation 2006. All rights reserved.Page 30 of 60
Customizing your DB2 Control CenterYou can see in the previous figure that I chose aBasicview, which greatly simplifiesthe explorer tree. You can customize the folders and options that you can see whenyou right-click on an object. For example, you could customize the CC so it wouldonly show theTablesfolder, or even customize the actions that display when youright-click on this folder to only allow you to create a new table, not change anexisting one.The next several sections present a detailed description of the CC tools that can bestarted from the launchpad. Each tool that you launch includes the launchpad, soyou can launch any DB2 tool from any other DB2 tool. This section covers the DB2tools and centers that are used most often. Other sections in this tutorial will coverthe remaining tools available from the launchpad that are not covered in this section.The DB2 Replication CenterUse the DB2 Replication Center (DB2 RC) to administer replication between a DB2data server and other relational databases (DB2 or non-DB2). From the DB2 RC,you can define replication environments, apply designated changes from onelocation to another, and synchronize data in two or more locations.
