Performance Impacts of Asynchronous Duplexing for Db2 Lock Structure


email iconGet Notified of Upcoming Webinars

In this SHARE User Experience session, Todd Havekost presents on a detailed before-and-after analysis of the performance and operational impacts of implementing asynchronous duplexing for the Db2 lock structure in a high volume production Db2 data sharing environment.

If you have considered implementing asynchronous duplexing for your Db2 lock structure but weren’t sure whether the benefits are worth the effort, this session is for you. If you get into analyzing the impact of a change by diving into dozens of before and after metrics and trying to understand why, this session is for you. If you want to get ideas on how to determine the unanticipated impacts of a change, this session is for you.
