Slow import

We are importing into DB2 UDB (used version 8.1 and version 8.2) using DataDirect ODBC drivers v4.2 and the import is extremely slow (10,000 records take about 15 minutes). Any pointers on how to improve import performance?

Thanks in advance.

is it just import which is slow?

have you got sufficient buffers, etc..

how many indexes are defined on the tables...
constraints etc...

consider removing the constraints/ indexes  and adding after the load...

The answer was the "LOAD" part - the programmer was inserting rows rather than loading the data. Thanks very much for the prompt reply.
