Provides accurate reports of components usage, helps tune performance


What is our primary use case?

Monitoring performance in test and production DB2 systems.

How has it helped my organization?

Provides accurate reports of components usage; helps tune performance.

What is most valuable?

There are many valuable features. I would say the most important are batch reporting and the ability to create repositories, enabling automated analysis. These are valuable because they enable me to do automated analysis of trends over time and reduce the time for comparing performance between two periods to identify anomalies.

What needs improvement?

I think CA is working on performance repositories; we use our own tools as an extension. They need to provide a way to create and maintain performance repositories. The online tool is not perfect, but it is giving me what I need.

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

Excellent.

What other advice do I have?

Very good and robust product.
