What has DB2 done with my data?
minimizing the amount of I/O DB2 has to perform to GET to your data? Want
to understand what can be done to SQL and your objects in order to make
them efficiently perform? Or do you just want to know what DB2 has done
with your data?
This session, by Rob
Crane, will focus on the performance aspects of DB2. Specifically, we’ll
look at the getting of the data, indexing and tablespace considerations,
tuning SQL (yes, it can be tuned!), and looking at the various access path
choices that are available in DB2.
And while this session
is interactive, there will also be ample time for Q&A and off-line dialog
with Mr. Crane.
