Index reorg information in a SNAP* view or a MON_GET* table function

Please make index reorganization progress (not table reorganization) accessible via a MON_GET* table function. Right now, it is only available via db2pd -d dbname -reorg -indexes and that is nearly impossible to parse via script.

STMM Monitoring

With the memory statistics similar to the ‘db2pd -dbptnmem’ output within the STMM logs, it would be possible to get memory usage report over time from Db2 perspective without any permanent monitoring tool (as long as STMM is used/active). It woul...

An analog of LOG_HADR_WAIT_TIME monitor element is needed at the agent level

Sometimes it's very useful to understand HADR influence on the transaction performance. We do have a couple of related elements - LOG_WRITE_TIME and LOG_HADR_WAIT_TIME at the whole database level, but their values can't help us to understand, if H...

Expand db2pd -reorgs index to cover index rebuilds

Currently, there is no way to monitor index rebuild progress using db2pd. It will be useful for customers to be able to monitor index rebuild progress as they do for index reorgs (db2pd -reorgs index).

As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve instance data without connecting to a regular (tenant) database

Several of the in-memory monitoring table functions and views return data which is instance-related. Still, a database connection is needed just for the purpose of having authentication / authorization / connection handle. This requires administra...

ADMIN_TAB_INFO is sloooow and this has been the case for quite sometiome.

Extremely slow when used in a RP environment. Also used by check_upgrade which takes 7+ hours to run. Environment has 2million+ objects, 1 range per day for 3 years. Check_upgrade may be calling check for load pending which used admin_tab_info

As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve the list of active databases using SQL

Coming from snapshot monitoring, the goal is to use in-memory monitoring and SQL in the least intrusive way to monitor the health of a Db2 instance and its databases. Right now, this is done by connecting to a non-tenant dummy database and running...
