Description

DB2 notes to enable monitoring metrics needs to be in Configuration Properties. Currently, there are no notes available like with other servers (i.e. WebLogic, WebSphere, Oracle, etc.)

Expected Result:
Specific DB2 information for requirements should be posted in the Configuration Properties

Actual Result:
There is no information at all for DB2 Configuration Properties

Steps to reproduce:
1. Log into HQ
2. Go to the platform resource for the DB2 server
3. Click the Inventory tab
4. Within the Configuration Properties - Control section, click Edit
5. Note there is no information specific for DB2 monitoring

Work around:
None

Additional Notes:
In earlier releases, the DB2 monitoring switches had to be manually switched on:

EnableMon: Tell the plugin to enable the monitoring switches. Monitoring switches are needed for service metrics, but not for server metrics. Service metrics like locks and bufferpools are more expensive to count, so they must be enabled explicitly. Also note autodiscovery needs this switches turned on to work properly. These switches can also be enabled from the DB2 Command Line Processor by using the 'update dbm cfg set XXXX on' command. See the DB2 documentation for more details.

It is unsure if this (or other requirements) is still the case???

As part of our continuous effort to improve product quality, The Hyperic product team has decided to implement a "zero bug policy" methodology.

Following this methodology, only defects that are planned to be handled in the near future will remain open. Any other defect will be deferred, with the option to be reevaluated if the need arises, or if changes to the Hyperic road-map make such defect a candidate for a fix.

We believe this new process will help create clarity and focus in the Hyperic road-map and ultimately benefit our customer base.

This bug has been deferred as part of the new policy.

We appreciate your cooperation and continues contribution to the improvement of Hyperic.
