  • Is the database up?
  • How are the nodes performing?
    • Is the load distribution equal?
    • Skewed?
    • Is there a bottleneck node?
  • Any problems in db2diag.log?

Get EEE-GUY and quickly see database status and node performance at a glance. Monitor db2diag.log and/or any other file for alerts or problems. Automatically attempt a db2start or other remedial actions in the event a failure is discovered.

EEE-GUY is monitoring one of our DB2/EEE databases right now, please take a look and see for yourself how easy it can be to monitor DB2 EE and EEE performance.

Did you notice?

  • You can view db2diag.log files in your browser?
  • You get a connection summary and details from "db2 list applications?"
  • You can view a log of alert actions taken?
    • Email Alerts - Send to email, pagers, phones, Palm Pilots ...
    • Execute OS commands
    • Execute scripts --- alert capability is extensible
  • Node performance can be sorted by CPU, sorts, or I/O?
  • From the node summary, you can drill down to node details?
  • Our database was alive?
    • We use an alert to auto-restart db2 if there is a database or system crash


EEE-GUY leverages the node performance information that is already being gathered by Wise-GUY at each node. For each node, EEE-GUY obtains the performance information from Wise-GUY then sorts it according to the criteria specified by the user.

By doing this, EEE-GUY is able to present a ranked chart of individual node performance neatly summarized on a single page. We also added a little UNIX magic to make the db2diag.log [and/or any other file(s) you care to specify] conveniently available in your web browser.

We heard a number of DB2 UDB users were writing homegrown db2diag.log monitors with alert capabilities, so we added this function to EEE-GUY as well. So you'll no longer need to maintain your home grown tool if you're using one.

Not monitoring db2diag.log? Why not? You should be.
