Sampling Results

The Sampling Results option gives you the ability to import your class assignments after you have assigned a fingerprint to your class. The class assignments are based on confidence values calculated using threshold recognition algorithms to determine the similarity of contents.

For this Import Type, you need to provide your workspace information (machine ID and company) and Content Threshold values. If desired, you can select other data store information to further restrict the class assignments. Select Import to assign classes to the data elements that have a fingerprint that matches the prototype fingerprint to the degree specified by the Content Threshold values.

Import Class - Sampling Results

For both the Distributed Systems and z/OS solutions, the Import Class window is the similar when Sampling Results is selected. However, it is only appropriate to import your classes in this way if your data stores are distributed (it works both with DB2 on MVS knowledge base and with XDB knowledge base).

Here is a summary of the parameters used by this function:

If you are working with z/OS data stores and a mainframe KB, you must schedule a series of jobs to perform the sampling functionality for you. For instance, you would schedule the job Data Store Data Element Sampling to select the sampling configuration, schedule the job Class Data Element Assignment to suggest class assignments, and then confirm the class assignments in the Work with Data Elements window of Data Builder.
