DB2 OS/390: Real-Time DB2 Monitoring Tools
All,

We currently use OMEGAMMON/DB2 from Candle for real-time monitoring. Our
vendor is substantially increasing the multi-year cost for using their
tool. As such, management has asked us to explore alternative products.
I'd be interested in hearing what the rest of the DB2 / OS390 community
uses for their real-time monitoring requirements.

TIA

We are looking at MAINVIEW to replace the OMEGAMON suite.

We use TMON for DB2 from Landmark Corp. and I can say we are quite happy
with it. Matter of fact
I rely on it everyday and it hasn't failed us yet. Plus they have a nice
add-on feature called SQL Capture
that we got that really helps us with our distributed SQL processing.
My 2cents worth... If you'd like more info on how we use it feel free to
contact me off-line from the forum.

Re: DB2 OS/390: Real-Time DB2 Monitoring Tools
(in response to Steve Whittaker)
Again my 2 cents worth:
We have a full suite if CA/Platinum DB2 tools here and we do use DETECTOR.
The thing can say from experience
is that TMONS SQL Capture gives you alot more control and quicker
information as to what distributed threads are
doing when they are executing. We do use Detector quite a bit for batch jobs
and it seems to work fine.
I'm not bashing Detector or Platinum but TMON for DB2 is definitely a
look-see. Hey if nothing else its EASY to use.

P.S. I'm getting no kick-back from TMON/DB2 either. :-) but its not often
that I like a tool like this and can get a chance
to brag it up.

Ed,

If you want 'real' time monitor, try T-mon from Landmark and Mainview/db2
from BMC. There are also not so 'real' time monitors such as CA's Detector,
Subsystem Analyzer, and BMC's Apptune, Pool Advisor.

They pretty much give you the same information you need.

I am rather obviously biased, but you should include DB2 PM in your

DB2 monitoring tools
(in response to Roger Miller)
I am just wandering what monitoring tools people prefer for DB2 on AIX?

I have been looking at Quest and BMC for our company but do not know which
one would be better for our company. Also if others know of any other
monitoring software, please do not hesitate to provide that information as
well, that would definitely help me in my decision making process.

thanks in advance

Mark
