Presentation Overview DB2 for Windows, Performance Tuning and ODBC Connectivity
DB2 UDB on distributed systems has many similarities but the OS platforms they run on can be very different. What ways are similar to monitoring performance on UNIX and Windows environments and which ways are different? Also, how can you set up connectivity for ODBC connections? An overview introduction to both performance and ODBC connectivity will be discussed.
