A message from our sponsor:
During today's quick 3 minute commercial, DBI demonstrated some performance trend charts that are complete with change indicators plotted on the charts. DBI has been automatically tracking important database change events since V8.2 of DB2. Change events are plotted on trend charts so that you can see the performance consequences of any changes. Trend charts without changes are, at best, merely pretty. Do you want pretty, or do you want clear results?
