Monitoring-tools for db2 UDB? - IBM DB2

    Default Monitoring-tools for db2 UDB?

    Hello everybody,

    we are new with db2 (using oracle for many years) and we wonder about
    some things concerning monitoring the db's.

    For example there seems to be no tool looking automatically for error
    in the diaglog. I searched here in the newsgroups and found out that
    most of you use grep or egrep. Okay, we do so either, and surely it
    will funktion but i am still looking for some tools watching my dbs
    like the oracle enterprise manager (if anybody know this).

    The tool should sent email in case of entrys in the errorlogs or when
    the db is gone away or things like that.

    Is there any? On any Platform?

    Many thanks,

    Lara

    I would check Tivoli, and with BMC for 3rd party tools (although Tivoli is
    owned by IBM).

    Does the DB2 Health Center introduced in V8 provide what you need?
    (I believe it does).

    Lara,

    There are several alternatives for monitoring tools ... some of which
    have been mentioned here.

    Specifically for monitoring of the db2diag.log, Tivoli is your best bet.
    Using the "Tivoli Monitoring For Databases" product, you can develop what
    is called a custom logfile adapter which can p any type of log file
    for specific msgs and take actions. The Health Center/Monitor might also
    help you ... it monitors thresholds set on several different type of
    variables/metrics within the database, but does not monitor for specific
    error msgs ... i.e. in some cases, it will monitor and alert you as to
    conditions that will generate a msg in the db2diag.log.

    Hope this helps.

    There is a very good, and free, DB2/UDB monitoring tool at http://chuzhoi_files.tripod.com/index.html

    Though this doesn't address the issue of the diaglog, which I agree is a pain to deal with.

    I think they are talking about silent monitoring that will send notification
    messages if certain problems or errors occur. The monitor above is not that
    kind of monitor.
