DB2 Performance Tuning Roadmap
This presentation will discuss DB2 for z/OS performance management and
tuning issues. It offers multiple guidelines and tips for achieving
optimal performance broken down into specific categories. The
presentation will touch on many aspects of DB2 performance that span the
application, the databases, and the overall system. Refresh your
knowledge of DB2 performance with these handy DB2 oppor-TUNE-ities.
Key topics covered include:
* The Tuning Progression: development versus maintenance
* Application Tuning: application code and SQL
* Database design and implementation: DDL, indexing, and organization
* System Tuning: DB2 subsystem issues
* The Environment: OS, TP, Network
DB2 9 for Developers Only!
This presentation highlights the DB2 9 for z/OS enhancements that
directly impact DB2 application developers. Every release of DB2 is
chock full of new features and functionality and that can make it hard
to focus on those things that are most helpful for programmers. So
instead of scanning volumes of manuals, you can watch this presentation
distills the DB2 9 information down to cover what should be most
important to programmer/analysts.
Examples of areas this presentation will cover include:
* A brief overview of DB2 9 XML capability
* New data types and functions
* New SQL statements like INTERSECT, EXCEPT, MERGE, and TRUNCATE
* The ability to SELECT FROM and UPDATE, DELETE, or MERGE statement
* Improvements to existing SQL
* And more...
If you are a programmer wanting to learn more about DB2 9, or a DBA
looking for the programmer's perspective on DB2 9, this presentation
should have something to offer you.
