Best Practices for DB2 with BLU Acceleration

A new Best Practices paper has been published for DB2, this time on using BLU Acceleration. The paper "Best Practices: Optimizing analytic workloads using DB2 with BLU Acceleration" can be downloaded from the Best Practices website. To get the most out of BLU the authors cover topics like identifying good workloads, capacity planning and configuration, then dig deeper into day to day activities. This includes understanding the synopsis tables and query plans and how to monitor the system.

Personally I like the fact that several from my former SVL team contributed to the paper ("Hello" from Germany).

BTW: This is another DB2 BLU-related post.
