The goal of database performance tuning is to minimize the response time of your queries. It is also to optimize your server’s resources by minimizing network traffic, disk I/O, and CPU time.

This IBM IBM Redbooks publication helps you to understand the basics of identifying and tuning the performance of Structured Query Language (SQL) statements using IBM DB2 for i5/OS .
