Last year at IDUG in Berlin, I met Sue Sterling from MetLife. We have a shared love of books & DB2! I’m looking forward to seeing Sue at IDUG in Orlando next week where she will be presenting at the following session:
It’s not always easy for employee of a company as large as MetLife to get approval for talking about their experience with a software product. So, take this rare opportunity to learn from Sue as to how MetLife has benefited from using DB2.
At MetLife we “create time” for our DBAs with performance, availability, cost reduction, and expense avoidance tools. The presentation shares our DB2 LUW footprint with easy-to-follow examples illustrating OPM 5, STMM, WLM, ROS and V10 Oracle-compatibility
Date, Time & Location
Attend this session on Wednesday May 1 in the Grand Sierra Rooms H&I from 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Sue Sterling is a Database Director and IBM Certified Solution Expert with a deep database background at MetLife as the enterprise continues to expand and globalize. Sue owns the health and stability of DB2 LUW engineering and architecture for nearly 2000 DB2 LUW databases. She has worked with databases for 15 years and in IT for 30 years, with DB2 LUW since its inception, and DB2 zOS before that. Sue is an early adopter of Optim Performance Manager (OPM), Netezza, Guardium, and a key member of the DB2 LUW Customer Council. Sue has authored and delivered technical presentations internationally in such locales as Nice, Hamburg, Berlin, San Jose, Orlando, Anaheim, Dallas and New York City.
During this session, you will learn:
Objective 1: Using a portrait of MetLife real applications, teach how to implement and use Optim Performance Manager 5.1 to very quickly allow DBAs to analyze and tune health and performance more quickly, eliminating the need for home-grown scripting and analysis.
Objective 2: Illustrate MetLife's experience, challenges, and shaping of Self-Tuning Memory Manager to free DBA time, more effectively distribute memory on hundreds of systems, and in some cases improve performance and ease CPU use.
Objective 3: Show MetLife's first implementation of Work Load Manager: our goals, our successes, and our challenges, including business rule definitions.
Objective 4: HADR has become mainstream at MetLife. Automated Client Reroute (ACR) is also popular. In 9.7 Read on Standby (HADR ROS) has become available. Here we will convey our experiences and practical tips with ROS considering the strengths and restrictions.
Objective 5: In DB2 LUW V10 Oracle-Compatible Mode is said to be 99% transparent, up from 95% in V9.7 without developer intervention. Describe our Oracle-Compatible proof of concept and findings which have helped us target Oracle database applications to convert to DB
I hope you can attend this session!
