SQL Infusion: A Db2 LUW Transaction Log Expedition!

96% of our audience learned something! Ember took us on an educational journey that covered just about everything related to Db2 transaction logs, active logs, archive logs, configuration settings, recommendations, and sample SQL for examining your systems. As for the 4% that didn't learn something --- they were IBM Canada Lab staff! Watch and learn...


Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Again, it was an honor and a pleasure to have Ember Crooks as our special guest. She's got a real gift for teaching that includes making complex topics seem understandable. She offered great advice and recommendations for Db2 logging during this session. I'll be watching this replay myself and checking configuration settings on some of my favorite databases.

DBI Software

During today's quick 1 minute commercial, DBI demonstrated the Brother-Thoroughbred® component of the DBI pureFeat™ Performance Management Suite for IBM Db2. Brother-Thoroughbred shows average transaction response times, how much time is spent inside Db2 and out, and, within Db2 time, where that time is spent so you can quickly see if a performance issue belongs to Db2 or not, and, if so, where the bottleneck is within Db2.

Magic Hat Money Working with DBI is like making money magically appear!

Typical customers enjoy 40-60% CPU utilization reductions in the first week, plus measurably faster transaction and query response times. More importantly, your time savings will be substantial!
