Candle Corp hopes to cash in on users’ criticism of the performance of IBM’s DB2 relational database management system version 2 of which has just been announced (CI No 913) – with its Omegamon for DB2, a real-time monitor for the IBM relational database. The company claims to be first off the mark with a performance monitor for DB2, and says that Omegamon DB2 uses in depth realtime analysis of DB2 performance to give automatic warnings of potential problems before they impact users. It monitors systems information such as response levels and compares them against limits set by the data centre. If the limits are exceeded, visual and audio warnings are issued, and software tools for improving performance are provided. Omegamon for DB2 facilities include locking analysis, resource usage and identification of active users. It runs in a variety of modes including VTAM and TSO and supports entry of system commands in CICS, TSO and IMS environments. Omegamon has just started shipping in the US, and will be available in the UK next month, at UKP19,900.
