[AD] change: NYC & remote IBM class Application Performance 2/28
Hi Listers, [Class moved from Dallas to NYC or On-line live!]

I've been teaching IBM Technical Education DB2 classes [as a
contract instructor] since 1991. Many of you may have missed the
chance to learn the ways to tune a DB2 application, or may have new
staff members or managers that lack this training. The IBM class that
teaches these concepts is CV960 "DB2 9 for z/OS Application
Performance and Tuning."

I'll be teaching it at the Jack Morton facility in in New York
City and also on-line "Live Virtual" on February 28-March 4, 2011 and
there are seats remaining. In order for the class to run, you must
ACT QUICKLY TO REGISTER. Contact Jack Morton at: 800-462-0102 [

memorable weekend before or after class as a sightseer, shopper or

You'll leave the class really understanding what's going on inside
DB2 as it answers your SQL query, with a range of important
performance enhancing skills: index design and index trade-offs, how
to live with the optimizer (avoid pitfalls, help it when necessary);
how to avoid locking problems; how to use EXPLAIN [with labs] and
explore accounting traces to find significant performance problems in
an operational application. We discuss huge batch jobs and how CPU
usage can be reduced, as well as the issues of immense data warehouse
queries and summary tables. [For more information

For those of you who work near or in New York City, the class is
held in midtown on Madison Avenue near 56th street, a short walk from
the 4,5,6,B,D,E,F,M,N,Q and R subways and Grand Central
Terminal. Commuters using the following lines connect via a bus or
subway to the training site: AMTRAK, LIRR and NJ Transit riders to
Penn Station; bus commuters to the 40th Street Port Authority
terminal; and PATH to 33rd St at 6th Ave. [directions and
hotels: http://learning.jackmorton.com/locations/NewYork.aspx ]

If travel budget is limited, IBM's business partner Jack Morton
Technical Education gives you the flexibility to get trained without
the travel hassel and T & L expense using cutting-edge
technology. The class is offered concurrently via vTrain, an
internet-based live training solution accessible from anywhere! I'll
be teaching live students in the classroom, and we'll all do
exercises and IBM eLABS with shared remote desktops for help with
labs. [vtrain info: http://learning.jackmorton.com/pages/sales.aspx ]
