This article provides an overview of the Easy IWA Technical Articles Series. Using the TPCH database schema, Data Generation utilities and sample queries from http://www.tpc.org, this series covers everything to get up and running with IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator including data generation, creation of an accelerator, loading a Data Mart and running a set of queries.
You find the introduction to "Easy IWA" here:
From the introduction you will find links to the individual articles:
- Easy IWA: Part 1 Got any data? - The TPCH database, data generation and IBM Informix 12.10.FC4
- Easy IWA: Part 2 Creating an IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator under 12.10.FC4
- Easy IWA: Part 3 Creating and Loading Data Marts under IBM Informix 12.10.FC4 and IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator
- Easy IWA: Part 4 Running a selection of TPCH Queries accelerated by IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator 12.10.FC4
I recommend "Easy IWA" especially to anyone who is interested to see IWA in action, but shy of getting hands-on experience. The step-by-step instructions of "Easy IWA" will help tremendously to get IWA up and running for the first time, and then demonstrate real query acceleration.
