Analyze Db2 objects

OMEGAMON for Db2 Performance Expert analyzes objects to reveal disk access by application. This can help you balance the load and determine where Db2 data sets should be placed to evenly spread I/O over available disks.

You can use this feature to:

  • Analyze Db2 object allocations
  • Evaluate linear VSAM data set extent activity
  • Monitor I/O activity at the DASD volume level
  • Track object activity from a Db2 perspective

The first indication of a Db2 performance problem often involves the I/O activity associated with a DASD volume, Db2 table space, or Db2 index space. OMEGAMON for Db2 Performance Expert's object analysis capability enables you to isolate such activity at a granular level to better understand how a workload or event contributes to an I/O related Db2 problem.
