Database-GUYS Inc. Releases SQL-GUY™ Version 2.2 To Accelerate IBM DB2® Performance

SPENCERPORT, NY - (February 12, 2001) - Database-GUYS Inc. announced today the availability of version 2.2 of SQL-GUY™, the precision performance management tool for DB2® Universal Database for UNIX that provides instantaneous real-time analysis of the most costly SQL statements in any workload mix. SQL-GUY 2.2 introduces unattended initialization and termination of SQL-GUY Monitor Agents as well as Global Statement filtering, permitting more rapid detection of the causes of slow performance.

With version 2.2, SQL-GUY Monitor Agents can be started from a command line, allowing automated unattended execution. Additionally, SQL-GUY 2.2 contains Global Statement filtering, which allows database administrators to identify the SQL statements that access specified tables. Other features of this release include the ability to do ascending and descending sorts on any field, as well as faster processing of dynamic SQL statements.

"Often the primary culprits of slow application performance are SQL statements having exorbitantly high execution costs," says Scott Hayes, president and founder of Database-GUYS Inc. "SQL-GUY 2.2 accelerates identification of SQL that may be hindering application speed. At one customer site, the advanced performance capabilities of SQL-GUY 2.2 helped the DBA team reduce Siebel 2000 batch EIM processing time by 75 to 80 percent within 24 hours of installing the tool."

"DB2 is the fastest, most scalable database on the market," says Jim Kelly, vice president of marketing, Data Management Solutions Division at IBM. "The combination of DB2 and SQL-GUY from Database-GUYS Inc. provides users with the ability to increase DB2's record-setting performance."
