As the cost of both hardware and software falls due to technological advancements and economies of scale, the cost of ownership for database applications is increasingly dominated by the cost of people to manage them. Databases are growing rapidly in scale and complexity, while skilled database administrators (DBAs) are becoming rarer and more expensive. This paper describes the self-managing or autonomic technology in IBM's DB2 Universal Database ® for UNIX and Windows to illustrate how
