    One advantage of using the "embedded" version of DB2 Connect on Linux for
    z/OS is that the communication between the gateway and DB2 for z/OS can, I
    believe, be using Cross Memory Services.

    This should give you some performance gain over a separate box.

    Note that you'll need to configure and start up DDF on the mainframe as
    well (including updating some catalog tables in tablespace SYSDDF and
    bouncing DDF if you have it started already).

    I've found the best reference for setting up DB2 Connect is the "DRDA
    Certication Guide".
