Many of the performance issues may be related to database design
and the complexity of the request.
One of the earlier posts asked how long it took to process
(some huge number) of records...
I don't think IBM has ever represented QU2 as anything more than
a query tool using the newer sql engine and having many more presentation options than QU1. I hope someone buying this didn't think sql just got faster!
I do think this tool on the i will make many shops (including me) go back and study the proper concepts of data warehousing. Interactive queries should never be reading huge amounts of data, and we have years of postings of how to limit users from doing that, and better design database and indexes.

IBM doesn't have the ability to make any changes to a product they don't
own. If they had wanted to do it right, they should have told IBI to make it
a screamer product on the small boxes, and they wouldn't have to worry about
performance on the big ones.

On the other hand, IBM is a hardware manufacturing and sales company.
Perhaps they saw this as a way to generate hardware sales.
