The Update Statistics Collections (QDBSTUS, QdbstUpdateStatistics) API has a way to set the "block system statistics collections option" -- I would like a simple way to do this through CL (either a new command or an enhancement to CHGPF). If a new command, the ability to apply to all of the tables in a single library would be ideal.
Batch processes that use work tables and/or import large amounts of data frequently cause many requests to refresh statistics collection while they are running. We would like to be able to pause statistics before running certain steps of processes that will insert a lot of data, and resume them afterwards. This is especially a problem when we run the data conversion for a new customer, which might involve numerous steps that each load thousands or millions of rows.
