Educational Seminar Details

"Explain Explained"

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.
