DB2 SNMP Monitoring - Missing the Boat - Big Time

P: n/a
For the IBM DB2 Development following this group. SNMP is coming back
in a big way. Changes in Version 2c and adoptions of Version 3 are
ushering in the adoption of SNMP back into the enterprise.

Your customers are going to be asking for the inclusion of SNMP back
into the monitoring suite. I'm not just talking about sending piddly
SNMP traps. I mean the "real meat" stats you get out of your DB2
instances (physical-to-logical layout, cache-hit ratios, ...) Locking
data access into IBM proprietary tools are going to be your un-doing
and don't start in about security.... SNMP Version 3 has that
covered...and I'm mean cold-covered. The lack of SNMP access, will
mean your application will lack the access presented easily within
Oracle and Sybase. Some of the largest corporations in the country are
presently working on system and application analytical tools which
leverage SNMP collections... proof positive that SNMP is coming back in
a big way (I'm working an implementation for a company with more than
30,000 servers.)

I bleed blue to my customers. I'm teased for being such a strong
advocate of IBM. IBM has become such an open source advocate. It's a
damn shame. WTFO - IBM DB2 development.

My 100% un-solicited, frustrated opinion,
