Summary Grouping and Detail Breakdown of Autonomics Actions by Symptom

It would be helpful if the Autonomic Console within the DB2 Automation Tool provided the ability to see both a summary grouping and a detail breakdown by symptom of any autonomic actions (either passive or active) within a maintenance window. A similar function could also be provided through the use of a symptom 'filter' on these panels.

This functionality would allow the DBA to much more easily see which objects are being flagged for the same symptom, and to take any action as deemed necessary. For example, as pending ALTERs are executed against DB2 objects, the affected objects are placed in AREO* status. Assuming this status is defined in an exception profile for REORG, this function would allow the DBA to easily identify all objects that are being flagged for reorg because they were altered by someone. The only way to do this currently is to manually look at the symptoms that were triggered for each object. This is very tedious when hundreds of objects are flagged for autonomic action each week.
