IBM seems to think we should just accept that the process now takes longer with the following statement: "As far it doing a good job, all the files are using logicals and from the statistic information there, the join order looks good. This means there is no obvious way to make it run faster. I must admit I am puzzled to how this ever ran faster. However, if you are hitting some of the problems with Select/Omit logicals, SI17357 will clean those up."
We are positioning ourselves to test the PTF but have not as of this writing. Was there something in the February group PTF that could cause a report to take 40-50 minutes longer.
I'd strongly suggest you continue to work with IBM Support to test out your queries with the latest PTFs.
