STMM Monitoring

With the memory statistics similar to the ‘db2pd -dbptnmem’ output within the STMM logs, it would be possible to get memory usage report over time from Db2 perspective without any permanent monitoring tool (as long as STMM is used/active). It woul...

Automatic Lock-Escalation from Row- to Extent-Level
