Spotlight on IBM DB2 LUW (Linux, Unix, and Windows)

Welcome to Spotlight on IBM DB2 LUW (Linux, Unix, and Windows). The help topics in this book cover features available in the interface when Spotlight is connected to a version 9 database.

Spotlight is a powerful database monitoring and diagnostic tool. Its unique user interface provides you with an intuitive, visual representation of the activity on the DB2 databases and database partitions that you choose to monitor. Graphical flows and line and fill graphs illustrate the activity on and between database components. Icons display the value of key statistics. Using the Spotlight browser, you can switch your monitoring focus between the various databases and partitions. Additionally, you can view activity at the DB2 instance level for any of these systems.  

The power of Spotlight lies in its ability to provide visual and audible warnings if the performance metrics exceed acceptable thresholds. The components and dataflows on the home page change color to show you the source of the problem.

A range of reports and graphs provide you with detailed information about a DB2 database, database partition, or the instance to which the database belongs. This information can be viewed on the screen or be printed.

You can set Spotlight options to warn you when a threshold is reached. You can define a number of thresholds so that warning messages are displayed well before the traffic levels into or out of databases become critical.

Spotlight uses a number of different techniques to warn you when your DB2 instance or a database is exceeding a threshold. For example, to issue a warning, you can configure Spotlight to change a color on the home page or drilldown, provide an audible signal, or perform an action, such as send an email message.

Required authority or privileges to run Spotlight

Spotlight either calls DB2 snapshot APIs (for DB2 for LUW 8) or invokes IBM table functions (for DB2 for LUW 9) to collect the raw processing data that it then translates into meaningful performance information. To run Spotlight, you need any one of the following authorities on each DB2 instance you are monitoring:

  • SYSMAINT

Or

  • SYSCTRL

Or

  • SYSADM

Or

  • SYSMON (or privileges equivalent to SYSMON authority)

Note: Spotlight on IBM® DB2® LUW installation does not create any database objects. Therefore, aside from the required user authority, Spotlight does not grant or require any additional privileges on objects.
