Working with monitoring agents

Set up a monitoring agent to be used by your Query Monitor Subsystem to collect data about your monitored Db2 subsystems.

If one Query Monitor Subsystem task is performing data collections on three different Db2 subsystems, then there are three monitoring agents active for that Query Monitor Subsystem. Additionally, each monitoring agent can optionally be assigned a monitoring profile.

Before you can activate a monitoring agent for a Db2 subsystem, the Db2 subsystem must be defined to the Db2 Query Monitor Db2 control file by using main menu option 7. Setup or by using Tools Customizer to generate CQM#CTLF. If you are using other products to monitor the same Db2 subsystem, you should review the considerations in Compatible releases and maintenance levels.
