Linux is one of the fastest growing server operating platforms within the past few years. DB2 has long been known for its technology leadership. This IBM Redbooks publication is an informative guide that describes how to effectively integrate DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (LUW) with SUSE and Red Hat Linux operating systems. This book provides both introductory and detailed information on installing, configuring, managing, and monitoring DB2 in a Linux environment.

We cover how to migrate single and multiple partition DB2 to DB2 Version 9.5, and discuss, in detail, DB2 database administration in a Linux environment, procedures and tools for database backup and recovery, online maintenance, and system monitoring. We cover DB2 integrated tools and their features and use.
We discuss aspects of DB2 application development in the Linux environment, and provide general tips about building and running DB2 applications on Linux, and the use of DB2 application development tools.
