Monitor DB2 on VMware
SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer VM Option for VMware (formerly Confio IgniteVM) helps IT organizations remove the risk of moving critical IBM DB2 databases from physical to virtual server environments. For use by DBA teams assigned to ensuring service and availability of the VMware hosted databases, DPA VM Option for IBM DB2 on VMware restores the accurate resource monitoring lost when physical servers are replaced by virtual ones.
DPA VM Option for IBM DB2 VMware is the only IBM DB2 monitoring tool that links database response performance with the multiple layers of the virtual server architecture. It shows the DBA team what the application response delays are, and what are contributing causes at the instance, virtual and physical levels.
Transitioning production IBM DB2 databases to virtual servers is a step that IT organizations are taking cautiously because of concern over continuous availability, I/O bottlenecks, and performance degradation. Making it part of the VMware project is a way to ensure the database service does not suffer with the move to virtual servers.
