Usage notes
  • The dynamic behaviour for diaglevel does not extend to all processes.
  • The db2sysc DB2® server process can detect dynamic changes, for example, when you issue the UPDATE DATABASE MANAGER CONFIGURATION command over an instance attachment.
  • When DB2 client and application processes start, they use the diaglevel configuration parameter setting and do not detect any dynamic changes.
