Other uses for query bands include:
- Preventing development work from running on the production platform at critical times. For example, queries with a query band of ‘Application=Test;’ can be prevented from running, based on a TASM filter rule.
- Recording the parameterized values that the query uses for each execution of tactical Java applications. These values are available in DBQL after the queries complete.
- Choosing between dynamic plan execution or static query plan execution.
- Setting the temperature of data being loaded into the system.
