"Easy IWA" by Oninit Consulting Ltd
This article provides an overview of the Easy IWA Technical Articles Series. Using the TPCH database schema, Data Generation utilities and sample queries from http://www.tpc.org, this series covers everything to get up and running with IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator including data generation, creation of an accelerator, loading a Data Mart and running a set of queries.
You find the introduction to "Easy IWA" here:
From the introduction you will find links to the individual articles:
- Easy IWA: Part 1 Got any data? - The TPCH database, data generation and IBM Informix 12.10.FC4
- Easy IWA: Part 2 Creating an IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator under 12.10.FC4
- Easy IWA: Part 3 Creating and Loading Data Marts under IBM Informix 12.10.FC4 and IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator
- Easy IWA: Part 4 Running a selection of TPCH Queries accelerated by IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator 12.10.FC4
I recommend "Easy IWA" especially to anyone who is interested to see IWA in action, but shy of getting hands-on experience. The step-by-step instructions of "Easy IWA" will help tremendously to get IWA up and running for the first time, and then demonstrate real query acceleration.
