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 would be really great to either add STMM as a facility to PD_GET_DIAG_HIST table function or to have an own function like PD_GET_STMM_HIST, which would allow to extract key information from those logs via SQL query!

Please consider this as a really valuable enhancement for DBAs, which have to manage lot of databases and multiple databases per instance.

We use POWER HA clusters running multiple instances on both nodes of the cluster, thus memory monitoring is essential for us not to run into trouble in case of a takeover and meanwhile increased memory needs for certain instances that won’t fit anymore, if all instances have to be run on one cluster node only!
