Components Q Replication for Z

Ability to create ASNMON Oracle Control Tables via GUI without Federated Server

We have QREP Data Replication established between DB2 Z/OS and Oracle on Linux. We are using Oracle Native Apply on the target DBMS.

As per discussions and conclusions in the referenced PMR, 85301,442,000, we have 2 issues:
1) We can not directly create the required ASNMON Monitor Control Tables for Oracle from the GUI interface and
2) We can not establish end-to-end monitoring with Oracle unless we establish a Federated Server setup.

We do not want to establish a Federated Server as this inserts additional overhead and complexities that we do not feel is warranted.

    IBM update

    Thanks for filing this requirement. We think that the requirement is valid, but the work is not prioritized at this time. IBM will keep the IDEA on our radar during future planning.

    It would an extremely helpful to be able to monitor end-to-end replication. Honestly surprised IBM doesn't provide this capability already.
