Our Shameless Marketing Moment

In Episode #37, a studio audience guest asked if there was a tool available that could analyze the SQL workload for an entire day and pass this workload to the IBM DB2 Design Advisor for MDC advice. Yes, absolutely, there is such a tool available!

During DBI's quick commercial, we showed how DBI's Brother-Panther® accurately identifies the SQL statements that executed during any timeframe - in just a couple mouse clicks!. One or more costly statements can be passed to the Design Advisor as a workload to obtain optimum results. And powerful trend charts make it easy to document the performance benefits achieved from any tuning changes you make.

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

Contact DBI and find out how our DB2 LUW Performance Solutions can truly help you optimize performance and lower IT costs.


To protect the intellectual property of our guests, we don't usually make the slide decks available. However, in this case, the slides contained a great deal of helpful technical content and our guests have willingly shared a PDF for our audience. We still recommend you watch the recorded replay first to hear what our guests have to say, then use THIS PDF as a reference. This PDF only contains about half of the slides.
