STATUS_CHANGE_TIME Colum doesnt exist in in mon_get views

We are currently working to migrate all our SNAP views to MON_GET views/Functions as SNAP views caused a  response spike in our PROD environment recently.
We are using STATUS_CHANGE_TIME columns of sysibmadm.applications to check lock waits on the database , To migrate We couldn’t find  equivalent alternative for STATUS_CHANGE_TIME in mon_get views/functions .
unfortunately, we dont have similar one in mon_get_* table functions for the application. we have some entry timestamps for the activities however these are not same things.


We have db2pd =apinfo which only tells you the application connection time it does not tell you the status change time unfortunately."

For now we are using UOW_START_TIME column of TABLE(MON_GET_UNIT_OF_WORK(NULL,-1))


 Also - we are looking for below enhancements


2. MON_GET_TABLE has metrics to find information about a table. But we can’t find its size. We are dependent on SYSIBMADM views to  find table size. It will be good to add table size metrics to MON_GET_TABLE

3. We can’t monitor/know connection status using MON_GET_CONNECTION, whether connection is executing/locking/wating etc.   Good to add connection status metrics column to MON_GET_CONNECTION view
