DBI Software Announces New IBM DB2 LUW Performance Tool Releases Offering New Features And Support For DB2 10

AUSTIN, Texas, May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DBI, a software company providing professional grade database performance management tools, today announced Brother-Panther version 5.2 with general availability May 23, 2012. Already recognized by the DB2 IT community as a best in class performance monitoring, tuning, and trending tool with its innovative SQL workload aggregate analysis and trend charts that track change events, this new release incorporates several new customer requested enhancements, lower overhead, support for DB2 10, and support for the z/Linux operating system.


Building on the success of release 5.1, Brother-Panther 5.2 not only automatically tracks database configuration and index changes, but also gives DBAs the unique ability to track important events external to the database such as hardware changes or application releases.  These events are plotted on trend charts alongside database changes to provide a more comprehensive view of the full impacts of all environmental changes.  And, when comparing database and SQL workload performance between any two timeframes, a single mouse click provides a PDF report summarizing all changes that occurred between the compared timeframes.

Mr. Scott Hayes, President and CEO of DBI states "Our research shows that production use of DB2 for LUW on z/Linux is enjoying robust growth at nearly 40% of installations as opposed to only 10% a year ago, so DBI is pleased to support this platform."  Mr. Hayes continued "New features and performance improvements in DB2 10, announced by IBM 2 April 2012, are rather compelling, so DBI acted promptly to provide support for this new version.  With DBI's breakthrough comparison technology, DB2 LUW customers will be able to accurately measure the performance impacts of upgrading from DB2 V9 to DB2 10, as well as promptly address any performance concerns that arise due to new optimizer methods."

Organizations with demanding performance requirements are encouraged to learn more by visiting or by visiting DBI at the IDUG Denver Conference, May 14-18, Booth #201.
