Many new challenges have been presented to the DB2 DBA due to the introduction of IBM's DB2 UDB. DB2 UDB performance tuning is one of the most critical functions of UDB administration. Poor performance and costly down time can be the result if DB2 UDB is not closely monitored and managed on a day-to-day basis. The focus here is to present a process and methodology of monitoring several UDB installations with a minimum of overhead while proactively reporting and tuning to minimize database and application performance issues.
