Knowledge is

of your hand.

"We are running Database-Guys tools now for a month, and I am very impressed by the result. We were doing a performance test, and I have no idea how we should have measured UDB without these tools. The Connection-MINER was my favorite during these tests. We are running a big UNIX-site (Sun Solaris)."

Palm-GUY uses the Palm wireless network to connect your Palm Pilot to the internet via its proxy servers. The Palm proxy server accesses your company's network. Database-Guys software makes real-time DB2 performance information available on the web server of your choice, and Palm-GUY, a "web clipping" application for the Palm Pilot, accesses your performance data over the web, subject to security constraints you may impose.
