Extend the Value of Omegamon Near-Term History

The Performance Database tables holds history information about Db2 activity, and the sequential output dataset created by NTH can be used as the input to create LOAD files with data to populate most of the tables, but not all. 

The problem is that is not possible to choose extra traces (IFCIDs) that we want to send to NTH. During NTH customization it is possible to choose which options we want to turn on or off, and this will result in a fixed list of IFCIDs being collected or not. 

The following 2 Statistics tables are part of the Performance Database and are based on IFCIDs that are not collected by any NTH option: 

- Aggregated Accounting Data table (DB2PM_STAT_AGGRACC) which is based on IFCID 369 (Statistics trace class 9)

- Storage Data table (DB2PM_STAT_STORAGE) which is based on IFCID 225 (Statistics trace class 6)

NTH sequential output file can't be used as a single point for collecting data to load the Performance Database.
