Search more accessed tables in DB2

 It’s relatively simple and unfamiliar tool for the novices: db2top.

Using the option “T” (tables) and sorting the list (key “z”) using column 1.

select *

In this first article, I relate a number of items from which this introduction is simple and can be read DB2 documentation easily, including general terminology, updates, utilities, and views.
