Introduction to Foglight for DB2 LUW

Welcome to the Monitoring DB2 Database Systems User and Reference Guide. This guide provides agent configuration instructions and information on investigating DB2 performance. It describes the dashboards included with the cartridge and contains instructions for configuring the agents the cartridge uses to collect monitoring data from the entire relational database management system. Also, this guide provides information about the rules and data tables that are available for your monitored system.

This guide is intended for any user who wants to know more about the agents properties and the dashboards included with the cartridge. It is also meant for those users that want to learn about the rules that are included with the cartridge, and the data the DB2 and DB2 Monitor agents collects.

Upgrading to the Current Version

Starting to work with a Foglight for DB2 LUW instance requires upgrading to the current version of both the instance and the Agent Manager that runs the instance.

This topic contains instructions for using the upgrade wizard.

Overview

Any upgrade of Foglight for DB2 LUW to the latest version, without upgrading the database cartridge components, is detected after the Databases dashboard is loaded. The upgrade is detected either automatically (by default: every 60 seconds) or manually, by clicking F5. Upon detecting the need for upgrade, the upgrade wizard starts automatically.

Selecting the check box at the bottom left of the upgrade wizard prevents the wizard from appearing upon entering the Databases dashboard. Nevertheless, if several database cartridge components still require upgrade, the need to upgrade them is still indicated on the dashboard by:

The Upgrade required caption, which is displayed in red to the right of the requested instance
The Upgrade button, which appears only if upgrade is required.
