Provide option to offload VSAM files in DSNTIAUL format
We run query monitor across 4 plexes and 9 LPARS and many DB2 systems. We do 'not' load the QM performance data to each system, rather we offload the data from each LPAR, then consolidate the load of the data to one of our non-prod performance warehouse systems. This allows us to make sure the CPU over head of queries is not impacting a production system and allows us to only go to one place to obtain the data for all systems.
While this process works well for us, it causes us grief when columns are added to the tables because the tables must match the maintenance level of the code begin updated. Since we extract from many LPARS and load to one, as we roll out our maintenance across non-prod, then prod, the files/tables are in different formats.
If we could have the option to offload the data in DSNTIAUL format, we could continue to load data from any system to our tables, regardless of the code base. This option would greatly simplify our maintenance rollouts.
