SPEAKERS: John Hornibrook (IBM Toronto Lab)

Database statistics are essential for enabling the query optimizer to choose good execution plans. DB2 for LUW contains a rich set of statistics representing the data characteristics of a single table. But often these statistics are insufficient to capture data characteristics across joins. DB2 9 adds a completely new concept called Statistical Views which are a powerful new form of statisticto capture cross schema relationships.They are particularly useful for correcting for skew and complex predicates. Attend this presentation see this new technology and understand how to use it to improve performance of problem queries in your own environment.
