Congratulations Ember, Brian, and Jean!
Another Buffet of DB2 LUW Tips and Advice

Replays available in WMV and M4V formats!

90% of our audience learned something! Today's "special guests" included seven contestants that shared some very helpful and creative DB2 LUW tips. Our judges chose their favorite three to advance to the March finals. Watch the replay to learn about tips for Online Index Reorgs, Testing Recovery Strategies, using Workload Manager, debugging CPU spikes, maintaining 24x7 availability while implementing schema and application changes, virtual indexes, optimizing Prefetch I/O, and advice for using the DB2 LOAD utility!

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Every contestant showed up! Audio worked! And I am thrilled with the awesome advice and tips that our contestants shared with the DB2 community! Our judges had a very difficult decision to choose three Finalists - believe me, their discussion and debate behind the scenes was vigorous! I know with certainty that I will be watching these replays - they are full of great ideas!

The DB2 Symposium
Savings for The DB2Night Show Viewers!

The DB2 Symposium fills an education gap between full week education courses and attending a conference. Events are three days long and are comprised of full day seminars presented by industry leading consultants. You can attend all three days, or just the days that interest you. The next DB2 Symposium event is March 28-30 in the NYC area. KBCE has generously made a 20% discount available to The DB2Night Show audience. When you register, use code DBI12A1 for the 20% discount (10% off on top of the 10% early bird discount). This discount expires 1 March 2012.

Scott Hayes comment: As a trainer for this event, I am consistently impressed with the quality of the venues, the food, and the overall organization. Every attendee I've spoken with has always been pleased and impressed. I am teaching a two day DB2 LUW Performance Workshop and I hope you will consider attending this event.
