I’ve not really gotten into EWLM and ARM – yet. But I think this APAR will be of interest to those who have. And I expect I will get interested in it when it’s more fully established…
PK11801 DDF FULLY-ENABLED EWLM ARM SUPPORT describes how the DDF support for EWLM / ARM is being made available to the general population of DB2 Version 8 sites. To quote:
DB2 for z/OS’ support for EWLM was initially shipped via APAR PQ91509. The support was installed disabled to control its initial use by customers while studies, etc., were performed to assess the support’s impact on a customer’s system and to evaluate if any further enhancements would be required. That investigation has concluded and additional enhancements have been provided on z/OS to minimize the impact of EWLM monitoring on a z/OS system. With the initial use period being concluded, the support will no longer need a special user modification to activate it.
