Remotely collect monitoring metrics from your DB2 databases.
Remotely monitor DB2 databases where you cannot install an OneAgent.
The monitoring configurations will be assigned to an ActiveGate group. Make sure the group selected contains ActiveGates that can reach the DB2 instances in that monitoring configuration.
The DB2 user must have read access to monitoring table functions. One of the following authorizations is required:
The relevant feature sets must be enabled for the metrics to be collected.
Calculated metrics (prefixed with 'func:') are calculated on the Dynatrace cluster side based on the metrics collected through the extension. Some calculated metrics require metrics from certain feature sets, so if you do not have all feature sets enabled you may encounter errors when attempting to chart them.
One metric event for alerting configuration is included: 'DB2 - Instance Unavailable'. Find this is Settings > Anomaly detection > Metric events and enable it to have availability events created on the database instance entity if no data is collected for 3 out of 5 minute intervals.

The DB2 data source supports SSL connections as of ActiveGate version 1.269. Monitoring configurations will need to be updated to enable SSL and connect to the SSL port.
Below is a complete list of the feature sets provided in this version. To ensure a good fit for your needs, individual metrics can be activated and deactivated by your administrator during configuration.
Route traffic, monitor cloud environments, monitor remote technologies with extensions and run synthetic monitors.
