SPEAKERS: Samir Kapoor (IBM Canada Ltd.)

This presentation is targeted towards advanced DB2 users. It would be most beneficial forAdvanced DBAs who are interested in DB2's cost based optimizer and learn how to analyse access plans, to diagnose query performance issues, directly from DB2 dev and support.We'll go into details of 2 or 3 examples from actual customer scenarios and show how we furtherdebugged the situations and what are the things to look for when debugging an optimizer issue.We'll show how the user can reproduce the problem on a different testing environment. From therewe'll give tips and things to look for to try in the testing environment to improve the access plan.
