The Client Application Analysis drilldown displays key performance statistics for all applications connected to monitored databases and partitions. At its top level, the drilldown provides an overview of performance during the current monitoring session. This is shown in the Client Applications tab.
From the Client Applications tab, you can drill down to detailed information on caching, sorting, locks, lock chains, units of work, and more for a certain application. This is shown in sub drilldown tabs, which are displayed in the lower half of the window when an application is selected. The additional statistics can be used to diagnose any problems detected in the Client Applications tab.
The steps below outline the basic workflow involved in using the Client Application Analysis drilldown.
To use the Client Application Analysis drilldown
View top level tabs to detect performance problems in client applications. Work from the Client Applications tab to check statistics. Work from Criteria tab to filter the list in the Client Applications tab based on criteria such as number of lock waits or timeouts.
Tip: To reduce the overhead incurred by this drilldown, show only active applications on the Client Applications tab. Right-click within the list of applications on the tab, and select Show only 'active' applications. This feature is not available on IBM DB2 10.5 and later if Monitor Functions Method is used to retrieve data.
