Update/Load Slooooow

Ok so I was using update to flip-flop some data in one of our fact
event tables. It was chugging OK, but I thought it could have been
faster. I ceased the update script and ran runstats on the table.
After it completed runstats, its updating even SLOWER!!!

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Chris

Run explain and take a peek.

What exactly would be that syntax? I've never used 'explain' before.

cd sqllib/misc
db2 -tvf EXPLAIN.DDL
db2 "explain plan for update ....."
db2exfmt -d <dbname> -o badupdate.exfmt -1 <- this is "minus one" not "L"

check out the badupdate.exfmt file.
(you can also post it here and hope someone comments)

How many idexes do you have on the table?
Keep in mind that adding indexes slows down changes to the table...

Cheers
Serge

PS: If you run a db warehouse explaining (and interpreting) plans is a
base skill.... google for "visual explain" and db2exmt. There are quite
a few resources available.....
