Know your onions when it comes to Db2 indexes


Presentation

What does a Db2 index look like from the inside?  I will begin with a very short, elementary description of Db2 objects in general, then move on to the various kinds of pages found in a Db2 index.  From there I will explore the contents of the primary pages found in all DB2 indexes and what that content is used for.
