Prior to using an IDAA appliance IBM has provided a DB2 Zparm ACCELMODEL=No that you can set that will fill in fields like QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_CP, QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_ELA, QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_SE that were added to the IFCID0003 record which allows you to determine if and how much workload could be directed to the IDAA. Does Insight R17 support these?
The IFCID3/314 fields QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_CP, QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_ELA and QWAC_ACCEL_ELIG_SE are not supported by R17. They are available in R18.
As to IDAA simulation in general, the zParms should be set as follows (note ACCELMODEL set to YES):
QUERY ACCELERATOR PREFERENCES PANEL ZPARM Name Value
Query options enabled for accelerator QUERY_ACCEL_OPTIONS NONE
Default QUERY_ACCELERATION special reg value QUERY_ACCELERATION NONE
Modeling of query workloads ACCELMODEL YES
