    Unanswered: Explain / Access Plans DB2

    I can view DB2 access plans in DB2 control center. I am just wondering is there any good tip /link anyone has for understanding the various shapes and lingo DB2 is using.

    I know what table and index scans are but what about the other shapes / colours?

    Also, any good tips for outputting the explain / access plan into a nice text friendly format?

    Thanks a mill

    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
