We have been using DB2 connect and Visual basic for over 4 years now. We also perform all our access using stored procedures on os/390. It has recently come to our attention that invocations are causing an incremental bind to take place on DB2. Although all documentation implies this should not be happening it is.

Has anyone had similar experience?

PS: It causes no functional problems of any kind only places additional load on DB2 to perform bind. We still see sub 100ms response times.
