runstats should be run : whenever indexes are added/changed - whenever large amount of data loaded/deleted ..
if slowly changing/growing data : on regular time base (monthly-trimester..)
some customer open the automated runstats in the night and let db2 handle this. they turn this off in the morning..

Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
