King-Size Data - Deal with it!


As your business has grown while running SAP on IBM i for a significant number of years, so have your database tables. If you haven’t paid attention to this and simply let your tables grow, there could be a negative impact to the performance of your database operations. If you reach a system limit, it could even cause more serious troubles for your applications. In this webcast, we will show you how you can identify large tables with a high growth rate before you reach a limit, what warnings to look for, and what you can do with those tables so that your system keeps running without interruption. We will have a look at archiving, table reorganization and table partitioning as possible actions to take.

Questions are welcome during the session. Some general Q&A time is also reserved at the end of the webcast for whatever else you may have in mind, and for your suggestions about possible topics for future webcasts.
