Database-GUYS Inc. Unveils New Product Offering
SPENCERPORT, NY - (February 3, 2000)
- Database-GUYS Inc. announced today the general availability of
SQL-GUY, their newest performance management tool for DB2® UDB
UNIX. SQL-GUY, which was developed with significant customer input, is the
only product on the market that provides instantaneous real-time analysis of the most costly SQL
statements in any workload mix.
SQL-GUY displays total and average CPU times and utilization
percentages, total and average sort times and percentages, and total and average
elapsed times and percentages, along with frequency counts. Results can be
sorted on any criteria, with drill-down capability from Application IDs through
package IDs to the statement level. From the statement detail level, SQL-GUY can
launch the DB2 Explain utility.
"SQL tuning is the primary factor affecting application
performance," says Scott Hayes, president and founder of Database-GUYS Inc.,
"and SQL-GUY immediately determines which statements are slowing performance and
costing your business time and money. SQL-GUY enables you to quickly make
informed decisions on how best to improve performance."
"The response from our early users has been very gratifying,"
says Mr. Hayes. "Twenty minutes after the tool was downloaded at one site,
SQL-GUY identified a single SQL statement that was consuming one third of the
CPU. Once the culprit was identified, a simple index change resolved the
problem and the customer suddenly had a lot more CPU available to improve
In addition to the general availability of SQL-GUY, Database-GUYS also
announced the availability of Version 1.3 of their other performance management
tools. An array of useful new features has been added to Wise-GUY,
in what is arguably Database-Guys's biggest release to date.

available multiple CPU and enterprise licensing discounts, SQL-GUY is poised to
help IBM DB2 UDB UNIX customers succeed worldwide. Interested parties should
