Our Shameless Marketing Moment

During DBI's quick show sponsor commercial break, we introduced you to a $2.2 Million UPDATE statement. Even though this statement ran in under a second for each execution, its CPU cost was enormous and it put the mission critical OLTP application at risk for locking problems. DBI's Brother-Panther® for DB2 LUW makes it easy to analyze SQL workloads for any period of time and discover real root cause problematic SQL like no other tools can (thanks to Patented technology).

DBI's comprehensive performance and configuration repository with the industry's best trend graphs enable you to monitor and manage your databases with confidence, improve stability, and achieve scalability with existing hardware.

Our #1 Job is helping you look great!
Our #2 Job is giving you the documentation to prove it!
