Educational Seminar Details

SQL and DB2 for z/OS Database Performance Analysis and Techniques

Database are growing at extreme rates, and with ever increasing transaction volumes and complexity it is most important to have the proper design in place and tested prior to implementation. Once the database is implemented it may be accessed via many different ways (mainframe, intranet, Internet), and you have to be able to track and report on application performance in a complex environment. This seminar will introduce the participant to SQL performance basics and filtering, and give the user the skills to analyze and improve SQL statements for performance. In addition, the participant will be introduced to advanced SQL, and the impact on performance, as well as the ability to use advance SQL for performance improvement. The proper monitoring of systems and SQL will be presented so that the most import SQL will be tuned first. The impact of advanced database object such as stored procedures, user-defined functions, triggers and constraints will be discussed in regards to performance. Techniques for the simulation and testing of performance concepts will be presented, along with advanced database table and index design for performance.

Areas Addressed:
-SQL Access Paths
-Filtering in SQL Statements
-Different Types of Predicates (Indexable, Stage 1, Stage 2)
-Filter Factor
-Improving the Performance of SQL
-Promoting Predicates
-Advanced SQL and Performance
-Using Advanced SQL for Performance
-Advanced Database Objects and Performance
-Proper Performance Monitoring
-Use of DB2 Explain
-Simulation of Performance Concepts
-Performance Testing
-Table and Index Design Tips for Performance
