If you are running a Mako system, the IBM End of Support date is 10th April 2023. So, you don’t have a lot of time left to decide whether to buy a new one, migrate to a different platform entirely, or continue deriving value from your existing investment and receive hardware and system/database support from an expert third-party (like ourselves) while you decide on the best way forwards. You may have heard there aren't any spare parts available but the good news is - we have loads! The question is how healthy is your Netezza system and what do you have to do to ensure that it is operating at peak performance whilst you evaluate your options? To help you with this question, we are offering an obligation free Smart Health Check report.
The performance of your Netezza system is impacted by a number of factors that will often not be apparent from the output of an individual command line utility like nzhealthcheck alone. We combine our 30+ years of experience supporting Netezza with additional diagnostics and analysis to determine not just what problems are lurking undetected, but also how to remedy them, all wrapped up in a report that you can access for free.
To analyse the health of your system we need you to send us some diagnostic output, which you can gather via an executable file that you can download here.
This executable file only collects system data such as database specifications (sizing, maintenance data, catalog information, etc.), hardware history and other system data files. It does not access your user data.
After downloading the file:
a) Save the binary file to /export/home/nz
b) Make it executable: chmod +x /export/home/nz /smartdsa.bin
c) Run as root or nz user: /export/home/nz/smartdsa.bin
d) Email the output to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your report will be emailed back to you.
