Tuning SAP on DB2 LUW

100% of our studio audience learned something! During this episode of The DB2Night Show™, Martin offered many valuable suggestions for tuning SAP in a DB2 LUW environment based on his experiences at several clients. This presentation has "meat on its bones"! Learn about dropping indexes, adding indexes, block based bufferpools, STMM, Vector I/Os and more! Watch and learn...

Today's "DBI Commercial" was very educational, so don't fast forward through it! Previously on The DB2Night Show and at IDUG conferences (Orlando, Melbourne, and Barcelona 2013), Scott Hayes has presented on DB2 10.1 and the new Index Jump Scans. During our commercial, we compared the performance of DB2 V9.7 versus DB2 10.1 FP3 in a high volume OLTP e-commerce environment. A number of SQL statements in the 4,200+ statement workload benefited from Index Jump Scans. Pay attention! You'll see reduced Index Logical Read costs, lower CPU, and some faster response times!

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.

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Martin cracks me up. He has a wonderfully dry and cynical sense of humor. More importantly, he brings to the DB2 community insights from his practical, hands-on, real-world experiences. I'm blessed to call him a friend and thankful that he shares hosting The DB2Night Show with me.

With 100% of our studio audience learning something, I trust you'll find some gold nuggets in this show that will be helpful to you. While focused on SAP, some of Martin's advice is applicable to OLTP databases in general. Enjoy!
