This is an advanced course designed for database designers, database administrators and application developers working with DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows who are concerned about performance.
Delegates should first complete one of the following courses or have equivalent experience:
- DB2 for LUW: Basic Administration for Linux and Windows - CL2X3G.
- DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX and Windows Quickstart for Experienced Relational DBAs - CL484G.
This course will teach delegates how to tune, for optimum performance, the IBM DB2 10 for Linux, UNIX and Windows relational database management system and associated applications written for this environment. Course content covers DB2 10 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows in a single partition database environment. Attendees explore performance issues affecting the design of the database and applications using the database, the major database performance parameters and the different tools that assist in performance monitoring and tuning.
Throughout the course attendees will use tools that are common across the Linux, UNIX and Windows environments. During labs running on DB2 10.1, delegates will expand their experience of monitoring tools, explain tools and DB2 utilities like RUNSTATS, REORG and db2batch to tune a database running on a local LINUX workstation.
Course objectives include:
- Define the impact of database design (tables, indexes, and data placement) on database performance.
- Describe database application programming considerations and how they affect performance.
- Identify and describe the parameters (database and non-database) that affect performance.
- Tune parameters to achieve optimum performance.
- Identify and use the tools that assist in monitoring and tuning of a database.
