I remember some of the presentations on this product. It's been a while since
I thought of it. I believe there is also a product we did a recent evaluation
on - Active8. And CA UniCenter offers some consolidated opportunities
(although it has its own 15% impact on overall performance). The point is that
IBM has given us tools that are insufficient from performance tuning
perspective, so others are stepping in to fill the gap. That itself is not an
slap at IBM. However, I would expect IBM to buy, endorse, or otherwise embrace
some of these efforts rather than continue to push solutions that are
Microsoft quality at best.

 I fathered the concept of dynamic tuning with a product called "Charlie the
 Tuner"  Now, if you were in the Boston area, Tuner and Tuna are both said
 the same.  Every one said dynamic tuning could not be done, IBM and it
 would not work.   They said I was a wacko.    Here we are 15 years later,
 Charlie the Tuner is still working around the world.  However, all those
 people that called me wacko are now doing the same thing but to a lesser
 degree.  Will Rogers hit the nail on the head.  "imptation is the best form
 of flatery"  IBM will NEVER get performance tuning done because of their
 concertive nature.
 The ironic thing is that IBM spends so much $ trying to put business
 partners out of business by creating products like business partners.  They
 should put $ into things to make the 400 more user friendly like "Tutorials
 on all panels"   >>
