The DB2Night Show #49: DB2 LUW Workload Manager - What, Why, How, Tips ...

April 15, 2011, 4:36 pm
Posted by Scott in DB2 LUW
IBM Developer Keith McDonald, aka "The K Guy", shared with us a fantastic presentation covering the DB2 LUW Workload Manager (WLM). He explained how it works, when and why to use it, and offered several tips, best practices, and helpful references. Watch and learn...

Quick Observation

"Shooting you straight" (as we like to say in Texas, which is synonymous with "to tell you the truth" ), I thought Keith's presentation was one of the best IBM presentations I've seen in a long time. It was well organized, full of meaningful and funny graphics, and the content should be very useful to all viewers. I asked Keith if he watched DB2's GOT TALENT and took tips from our judges, and he said that he did. icon_biggrin
I hope you enjoy Keith's presentation much as I did - I know I'll be watching the replay a few times myself! icon_wink
