Database tuning is the activity of making a database application run quicker. Tuning is difficult because it requires global knowledge of an information system, from the hardware to the operating system to the query language to the application. Tuning is important because performance can make or break a database application. Achieving higher performance by tuning can save money by eliminating the need to buy new equipment or to develop new software. Features of the text include tuning advice for relational and object-oriented database systems in general, incorporating suggestions from consultants of competing vendors (IBM, Oracle, Sybase, Ingres).
