With a DB2 family audience, we took a stroll down memory lane and talked about bufferpool performance and bufferpool folly. Read THIS BLOG. Even with automatic tuning, you can still saturate your CPU capacity by scanning a "small" table in a "large" bufferpool. DBI finds problems that no other tools do.

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

We received a lot of positive feedback on this show from our studio audience. It wasn't our usual bits about DB2 this or that, but it was surely very interesting. Many people in our audience were already working on BIG DATA projects, or were planning to. This show is very timely! Don't skip a single minute!

We had trouble with the Citrix GoToMeeting Transcoder (again). The WMV download might not work correctly (no video, bad video, or other issues). However, the MP4/M4V file seems to work wonderfully in QuickTime, so you might go for the MP4 if you usually get the WMV.
