DB2 monitoring

The main aim of this document is to describe the DB2 systems monitoring based on Unix.

Some “base” modules have been chosen according to our experience in system monitoring and the necessities of some of our clients. In addition, all the specifications collected in different real production environments have been added, taking real specifications of database administrators.

For extracting information it is used:

● An external configuration file ​where all the plugin parameters are defined. This configuration file is able to perform calls (includes) to other files.
● We use the software that is already installed in the system ​(db2, df, etc), for the monitoring with the plugin without having to install libraries or third-party utilities.
