Informix Dynamic Server 11.5 Database Administration: Managing and Optimizing Data IX221CZ


Základní info

This course will teach you the basic concepts of data management within IDS. It discusses how to determine correct data types; how to create, manage and maintain tables and indexes; how the IDS optimizer works; how to manage data; and how to utilize the SET EXPLAIN feature to determine query effectiveness. The course and lab exercises are updated for Version 11.5 of Informix Dynamic Server, but is suitable for those still running previous versions of IDS.

Kurz je určen pro:

This course is designed for IDS administrators, Database administrators, and Application developers.
