Specify Application Trace

Customer is complaining that he is unable to perform traces on DB2 threads coming from the distributed side. These threads arrive all to DB2 with the same plan name ('DISTSERV'), and the only way to tell them apart is to use the Correlation ID (CORRID field). Unfortunately, panel KD2PSAP (Specify Application Trace Collection) is somewhat limited when it comes to this issue. This panel doesn't allow the selection of threads by their CORRID. Although Omegamon is able to show the CORRID, it won't allow it to be used as a filter, which is extremely limiting for the customer. Customer would like to get some suggestions on how to overcome this limitations. These traces are extremely important for the customer, and the OEM monitor that customer is currently trying to replace allows these traces to be taken.
