Our first Chat of the new year will cover some of the most frequently asked DB2 LUW performance questions, such as, what is the best approach for fast INSERT performance? How do I minimize the impact on my system when I'm collecting performance data? What snapshot elements should I pay attention to for everyday monitoring? How much overhead can I expect if I create my database in Unicode?...
This chat will cover a wide variety of common DB2 performance questions in areas such as implementation, administration, and application development. The typical answer to performance questions is "it depends", but here we will take a straightforward approach, with emphasis on clarity, useful guidelines and rules-of-thumb. Underneath these answers will be a solid foundation of "why" - including experimental data and explanations of DB2 internals. This will provide you with useful information on some of the most common and persistent DB2 performance questions.
Our speakers for this session will be Sal Vella, Vice President, Development, Distributed Data Servers and Data Warehousing and award-winning speaker Steve Rees, Senior Manager, DB2 Performance QA.
