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 transaction throughput."

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™, Pool-GUY™, Space-GUY™, and Connection-MINER™, in what is arguably Database-Guys's biggest release to date.

With a starting price as low as US $2,995/CPU and available multiple CPU and enterprise licensing discounts, SQL-GUY is poised to help IBM DB2 UDB UNIX customers succeed worldwide.
