Monitor element, or audit/diagnostic utility, that identifies TLS version of an active DB2 LUW connection (application or session)

We are on the path now to enforcing TLS 1.2 for all SSL at my company. To make it easier for developers, at this point we have enabled TLS 1.2 but are continuing to allow TLS 1.0 and 1.1 database connections. We are hesitant to simply disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in production, as inability to connect to the database could cause a production outage. We would like to identify the application clients that are still backlevel at TLS 1.0/1.1, notify developers and application engineers so that they can fix their jdbc client configurations first before flipping the TLS 1.2 enforcement switch. Do you have any idea if there are utilities out there that can display the TLS version in use by an active connection? We are aware of the ability of openssl to identify the TLS version compliance of an open port, and that’s great for confirming that the DB2 SSL listener can support the protocol. What we are interested in is auditing which app servers are still talking to DB2 via TLS 1.0/1.1. With the recent emphasis in the industry on security, I am surprised that IBM still does not have a utility to accomplish this.
