Deprecation of ‘online monitoring’ (OLM) function in OMEGAMON DB2 ISPF user interface

Technote (FAQ)


Question

What happened to the ISPF Inline Monitoring (OLM) interface functions "Display Thread Activity","Display Statistics", and "Display System Parameters" ?

Cause

OMEGAMON XE for DB2 Performance Expert (and Monitor) OLM functions dropped starting with DB2 v11.

Answer

As documented in the What's New section of the Configuration and Customization guide (GH12-6998-00) dated October 2013, starting with OMEGAMON XE for DB2 Performance Expert (and Monitor) V520, GA in October 2013, the ISPF OLM Online Monitoring functions "Display Thread Activity","Display Statistics", and "Display System Parameters" are not supported for DB2 V11 and above. DB2 V11 is fully supported in the remaining UIs (e.g. enhanced 3270, VTAM classic, Tivoli Enterprise Portal, PE Client, and CUA) until notified otherwise.

This is the ISPF interface feature of the IBM DB2PM product that was merged with the Candle OMEGAMON DB2 product. The ISPF interface to the classic interface of the prior Candle OMEGAMON DB2 is still available.

[December 2016 update: CUA is no longer available with OMEGAMON XE for DB2 Performance Expert (and Monitor) as announced in the What's New section of the V540 Configuration and Customization Guide.]
