DB2 11 for z/OS Application Performance and Tuning

Learn the skills necessary to manage application performance in a DB2 for z/OS environment.

GK# 2875 Vendor# CV963G

Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn how to prevent application performance problems and improve the performance of existing applications. You will learn about indexes, table design, locking, and other issues relevant to application performance. This course includes paper exercises and machine exercises designed to reinforce the lecture content.

Note: While class exercises are performed within a DB2 11 for z/OS environment, our expert instructors can provide guidance on all versions and their differences.
