Error formatting event log

We have had a couple situations where DB/2 died due to someone sending
one of the DB/2 processes a kill 9. When this occurs, DB/2 goes down
and I noticed in the db2dump directory some files called
db2eventlog.000 and db2eventlog.000.crash. I renamed one of them to
00000000.evt and tried to run db2evmon against it but get the following
error:

Reading /home/hdbuser/sqllib/db2dump/00000000.evt ...
ERROR: Unexpected Memory model specified for trace in:
/home/hdbuser/sqllib/db2dump

Are these files not really event logs? Does anyone know anything about
them or what they might be? They are unreadable.

I don't know, but it's not a good idea to kill db2 by issuance of a kill
-9.

Well, I know. We are not killing db2. We can't figure out where that is
coming from. I was just wondering if those event logs could help us
track what was occurring at the time this happened.

those 2 files is not parable by db2 event monitor. It is for db2
technical support.

Ah, ok. Thanks. That explains it.
