Yeah, I don't think that's the link I'm recalling...

IIRC, it was within the last year or so...and it was an actual
recommendation.

Was a bit of a shock :)

Maybe I'll shoot Kent an email, as I suspect it was something he wrote or
knows about anyway.

Actually, IBM does recommend it now...

There is a nice whitepaper about indexing and statitisc strategies
written by Kent Milligan and Mike Cain, which should be learned "by
heart".
Here is the link:

https://www-304.ibm.com/partnerworld/wps/servlet/ContentHandler/stg_as

wp_db2_i_indexing_methods_strategies


​That's a great white paper, but it hasn't been updated since 2011..

It appears IBM has move the information into Infocenter and kept it
updated..
