IBM Data Studio Web Console
As a database administrator, it is important to have a good understanding of your database environment. Some of the things you need to know are the kinds of activities that are happening on the system, the data server status, and the database connection status. The IBM Data Studio Web Console provides health monitoring, job management, and connection management for DB2 databases. It can be used in a single-user environment or a multiuser environment to share monitored features and analysis across database servers.
The web console is comprised of a server component and a client component. The server component must be running to monitor database health, issue alerts, and manage scheduled database maintenance jobs. The client component is a web interface used to create and manage jobs and view and analyze alerts.
Shown in Figure 4.40 are the key web console tasks:
- View health summary
- View alerts
- View application connections
- Manage database jobs
