ITMA that comes with DB2 v9.7 - Who needs it?

When running a health check script that I use internally at work, I noticed thousands of violations in databases I created using DB2 v9.7 on Linux and Unix, due to file permissions. To contextualize, that HC tool checks for permissions and treats files with permission 775 under the DB2 installation directory as a violation (should be 755 or more restrictive).
After having a closer look at it, I noticed the files were related to ITMA (IBM Tivoli Monitoring Agent) which is installed as part of DB2 9.7 by default.
After some research on DB2 LUW Information Center 9.7, I found that
ITMA is only used by Data Studio Administration Console -
which is deprecated
- now replaced by Data Studio Web Console.
The procedure to uninstall ITMA is detailed
On Windows, please refer to the link above.
