problem while index creation


I am dropping an index and recreating it to lower the high water mark.
The index creation is taking a lot of time. I am stuck as to why it
does so. Is there any way that I can find out why it is doing so. Is
there a snapshot that will help me while index creation.

DB2 needs a work area to sort the index rows before creating the index. If
your system temporary tablespace is too small, it could take a lot longer
than necessary. If you system temporary tablespace is SMS defined on a path,
make sure you have adequate space on the path for it grow as needed. If it
is DMS (not a good idea), then make sure enough space is allocated. By
"enough," I mean several times as large as the index in order to speed up
the creation of the index. Generally, you system temporary tablespace
should be at least as large as your largest table (minimum size).

Folks, We have an SQL statement that was coded in an application many years ago (starting with DB V2 I think). When I upgraded to UDB 8.2, the optimizer does not use optimal path to access the data. It takes about 4 minutes to get the data. In previous versions it was instantaneous. What do I need to do to increase the performance?

Hi All, I've a problem with the perfprmance of the production environment. I've two db servers. One on my laptop computer (2Ghz, 1GB, WinXP, Cygwin, Postgres 7.3.4) and one on a production server (2GHz, 1GB, Ultra SCSI, RH7.1, Postgres 7.3.2). I run the same dump and the same query on both of the computers. The difference is substantial. The query takes 5 times longer on the production server then on the laptop.

I wonder if anyone can help ... Today I tried to create another non-clustered index on a table. This failed as I apparently already had 249 non-clustered indexex on the table. Looking at the definition of the table there were 90 or so indexes already defined and not 249. (For those of you who quite rightly think 90 indexes on a table is a little over the top, I hasten to add that this is a third party CRM system called "Siebel" which...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
