How to get live metrics for CPU, Memory,Disk etc by running db2 queries in the tdw server.

I just received this question today from an ITM user and thought it would be best to answer it here.

First, The "Getting Started with IBM Tivoli Monitoring on Distributed Environments" PDF contains great information on ITM 6.1, and it is applicable to all of the 6.x versions:

Chapter 4 specifically goes over the Tivoli Data Warehouse, including the DB2 table and column names. Specifically, look at section 4.2.4 for descriptions of the different table names.

The tricky part in DB2 is that the table and column names are all case sensitive, which means you need to enclose the table name inside double-quotes in your sql statement. For example, you would use this SQL statement to get percent processor time for all processes for all servers:

select "%_Processor_Time","Process_Name" from "NT_Process"

If you want to see data that hasn't yet made it to the TDW, then you need to use the krarloff command described here:

What to use instead of ITMSuper

ITMSuper is a JavaScript based tool that can be used for maintaining the health of your ITM 6.x environment. It was written by IBM and made available as a separate download, but was never completely supported. It's even less supported today, as it only supports Internet Explorer 8. Here is a great blog post from Shaun R at IBM pointing to different tools that you should use instead, all written by IBM's own John Alvord:

IBM Performance Management 8.1.1 is GA!

IBM® Performance Management is a comprehensive solution that helps manage the performance and availability for complex applications that might be running in a data center, public cloud, or hybrid combination. This solution provides you with visibility of your applications, ensuring optimal performance and efficient use of resources.
The Performance Management solution collects data from both Performance Management agents and Tivoli® Monitoring agents. Data is displayed in the Application Performance Dashboard for both Performance Management agents and their hybridized Tivoli Monitoring counterparts.

The IBM Performance Management solution has four offerings:

  • IBM Application Performance Management Advanced combines IBM MonitoringIBM Application Performance Management, and IBM Application Diagnostics into one offering.
  • IBM Application Performance Management for end user experience, transaction tracking, and resource monitoring of all your application components. Application Performance Management is useful for managing your critical applications in production.
  • IBM Monitoring for resource monitoring of infrastructure, application components, and cloud workloads. Resource monitoring helps you identify and address slow transactions, capacity issues, and outages.
  • IBM Application Diagnostics for code level visibility into your applications and the health of your application servers. Use the diagnostics dashboards to find performance bottlenecks in application code.

A new piece of documentation included with this release is the Scenarios guide. There is currently only one scenario documented, but it is very detailed and represents the most common scenario by far.
