DB2 LUW Health Indicator sensitivity APAR

DB2 LUW Health Indicator sensitivity APAR
A few weeks ago I opened a PMR re: a problem with the db.db_backup_req
Health Indicator (HI) sensitivity parm. The Health Center indicated that the
sensitivity parm's unit of measure was minutes. The DB2 support tech
believed that the unit of measure was minutes too. I was setting the value
for the sensitivity parm in minutes to specify the time to delay sending a
notification after an Attention state was set. The problem was that the
notification was being sent before the sensitivity time (in minutes) had
elapsed.

Turns out the sensitivity unit of measure is in seconds!!!

The unit discussed below is for the HI sensitivity parm.
On Nov 29 2005, DB2 support said

We have confirmed that unit is in seconds, not minutes. We have also
identified the following defects. For the first two defect, I'm going to
open defects. We already opened a documentation defect so the unit is
correctly documented.

1. The health center displays sensitivity in minutes but does not do a
conversion from and to seconds returned by the API .

2. The CLP outputs sensitivity as a 16 bit value even though it is 32
bit in reality .

3. couldn't find the unit being described in the documentation .
Documentation
should be updated.

I'll follow-up with APAR #s after I get them.

Re: DB2 LUW Health Indicator sensitivity APAR
(in response to Michael Piontkowski)
Following up on a previous post...

APAR JR22911 - The health center displays sensitivity in minutes but does
not do a conversion from and to seconds returned by the API .

APAR JR22955 - The CLP outputs sensitivity as a 16 bit value even though it
is 32 bit in reality .

For the documentation problem, a defect was opened against the next DB2
version and it is to make sure the documentation is updated describing the
unit for Sensitivity parameter.
