Db2 Science Projects: IoT Project Pollinator and GWLM Tool

100% of our audience learned something! It's a special show when we have two guests! Roger Sanders introduced us to Project Pollinator and showed us his pet Internet of Things (IoT) Db2 project - Fascinating! And Paul Bird introduced us to a rather new "free" Graphical Workload Manager (GWLM) tool that is available to help make administering Db2 workload management easier! Watch the replay, get the details, follow the links, and enjoy the PDFs!


Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

I'm just impressed! Cool stuff! When you let smart people "off leash" and give them the chance to explore their creative capabilities, amazing things can happen! Roger built this cool little IoT device that tracks temperatures and stores the data in Db2, and gave a cool demonstration! Paul recognized the need to make administering WLM easier and thus developed a nice GUI tool for WLM administration!

IBM Project Pollinator

Immediately following Roger's presentation and demonstration, Twitter was quickly buzzing! Listen to the replay for details on a great opportunity from IBM! Click the link in this tweet, and please RT too!

DBI Software

During today's quick commercial, DBI demonstrated some customer favorite features of Brother-Panther®. We used a trend chart to find a period of peak costs, drilled into the SQL, found costly SQL, explained it, got index advice, and then performed a workload impact analysis. It only took a couple minutes and a few mouse clicks. Want to try it? Contact DBI Now (just 2 clicks).
