Thomas Baumann of Swiss Mobiliar to Examine Machine Learning at IDUG’s 2017 North American DB2 Technical Conference

Bern, Switzerland (25 April 2017) — Thomas Baumann will discuss the application of machine learning techniques in order to tune databases at IDUG’s 2017 North American DB2 Technical Conference, April 30 -May 4, 2017 in Anaheim, CA.

Make your plans to attend and experience the latest in DB2 technologies, networking opportunities and the technical content you need to be successful.

In his presentation, titled “Buffer Pool Tuning in the Cognitive Era”, Thomas Baumann will present Swiss Mobiliar’s bufferpool layout and introduce the attendees into the secrets of machine learning, tailored for the DBA’s everyday use. Get first-hand experiences and practical information of machine-learning for the purpose of database object classification, review the latest buffer pool tuning features, and understand how to translate buffer pool tuning efforts into valuable performance information.

Bufferpool tuning has been a key tuning strategy since the early days of DB2. By adding additional pagesizes, new page stealing algorithms and last but not least by implementing in-memory technology, we have more choices than ever before. While setting out a clearly defined buffer pool layout and initially associating database objects to their corresponding pools has remained the starting point of buffer pool tuning, we now make use of cognitive technologies to help us classify new objects based on their access pattern to the corresponding pools. And we don’t need any longer a DBA being bonded to monitor access behaviour, to investigate in finding out access pattern and to eventually define the best pool for each new object.” said Thomas Baumann.

The International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) is an independent, not-for-profit, user-run organization whose mission is to support and strengthen the information services community by providing the highest quality education and services designed to promote the effective utilization of DB2.
