End of Support for IBM InfoSphere Information Server 9.1.0

IBM InfoSphere Information Server 9.1.0 will reach End of Support on 2018-09-30.  If you are still on the InfoSphere Information Server (IIS) 9.1.0, I hope you have a plan to migrate to an 11-series version soon.  InfoSphere Information Server (IIS) 11.7 would be worth considering if you don’t already own an 11-series license. InfoSphere Information Server (IIS) 11.7 will allow you to take advantage of the evolving thin client tools and other capabilities in the 2018 release pipeline without needing to perform another upgrade.

Infosphere Information Server (IIS) – Where you can view DataStage and QualityStage Logs?

During the course of the week, the discussion happened regarding the different places where a person might read the DataStage and QualityStage logs in InfoSphere. I hadn’t really thought about it, but here are a few places that come to mind:

  • IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Operations Console
  • IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Director client
  • IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Designer client by pressing Ctrl+L

What Are The DataStage / QualityStage Join Stages?

Three Stages Which Join Records

Three Stages Which Join Records

While chasing an error to which only applied to join type stages, I thought it might be nice to identify what the InfoSphere Information Server DataStage / QualityStage are.  There are three of them, as you can see from the picture above, which are the:

  • Join Stage,
  • Lookup Stage,
  • And, Merge Stage.

All three stages that join data based on the values of identified key columns.
