Bonnie Baker is a consultant and educator specializing in applications performance issues on the DB2 OS/390 and z/OS platforms. She is an IBM DB2 Gold Consultant, a five-time winner of the IDUG Overall Best Speaker award, and a member of the IDUG Speakers' Hall of Fame. She is best known for her series of seminars entitled "Things I Wish They'd Told Me 8 Years Ago." She is a
frequent speaker at the U.S., European, Australian and Canadian DB2
Technical Conferences and IDUG's as well as many local DB2 user groups
(like ours!!). She tries
to bring her 'hands-on' 'from-the-trenches' perspective to her
presentations to provide real-life solutions to real-world problems.
EXPLAIN is the primary tool for providing insight into the DB2 optimizer and the
access paths chosen to satisfy program SQL. Application developers and Database
Administrators should understand how to use EXPLAIN to determine how a program
is interacting with DB2. They also need to know how to fix performance problems.
Expect a clear discussion of what EXPLAIN can tell you about access paths and
performance. This one day seminar will take you from the basic to the advanced
level of using EXPLAIN.
- Learn how to run EXPLAIN
- Learn what the columns in the Plan_table MEAN
- Learn how to identify potential problems
- Learn methods for IMPROVING access strategy and program performance
- Get pointers on using SPUFI for EXPLAIN
- Learn about access paths and how they impact performance
- Learn about EXPLAIN interpretation
- Participate in workshops designed to reinforce the lecture
- Ask questions - time will be allotted for Q&A
