How Fast Is It?

In a production shop, we have queries that return over 3,500 records per second and have seen query retrieval times as fast as 10,000 records per second. (Model 9406 50s 10mb Ethernet V3R7)

Most SQLThing exports run at greater than 1,000 records per second.

SQLThing does multi-row binding, this means DB2 Imports can run at > 1,000 inserted records per second. In a recent warehouse load, we averaged 1,800 records per second on a table with two indexes, 2 foreign keys and 1 primary, (non journaled for import purposes).
