Diagnostic tools (Windows)

Three useful diagnostic tools on Windows systems are described.

The following diagnostic tools are available for Windows operating systems:
Event viewer, performance monitor, and other administrative tools
The Administrative Tools folder provides a variety of diagnostic information, including access to the event log and access to performance information.
Task Manager
The Task Manager shows all of the processes running on the Windows server, along with details about memory usage. Use this tool to find out which Db2® processes are running, and to diagnose performance problems. Using this tool, you can determine memory usage, memory limits, swapper space used, and memory leakage for a process.

To open the Task Manager, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, and click Task Manager from the available options.

Dr. Watson™
The Dr. Watson utility is invoked in the event of a General Protection Fault (GPF). It logs data that might help in diagnosing a problem, and saves this information to a file. You must start this utility by typing drwatson on the command line.
