IBM® Data Server Manager is a simple, scalable, and smart solution to administer, monitor, manage, and optimize the performance of DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows databases across the enterprise. It is easy to deploy and cloud-ready. It simplifies database administrative tasks for both expert and novice users. With one simple Data Server Manager server installation, you can access any DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows or DB2 for z/OS and BigInsights systems without the need to install or update any client code.
