How to stop IBM DB2FM

Hi there,

I have an issue with db2fm this service seems to prevent the linux machine from running normally.

Basically we want to temporarily stop the db2fm from running and resolve some other issues before reinstating it.

Can anyone help on how to check the db2fm status and stop the service temporarily and/or permanently?

xample 5: Turn off fault monitoring
To turn off fault monitoring for instance DB2INST1, type the following command:

   db2fm -i db2inst1 -f no
To confirm that fault monitor is no longer running for DB2INST1, type the following command on UNIX® systems:

   ps -ef|grep -i fm
On Linux®, type the following command:

   ps auxw|grep -i fm
An entry that shows db2fmd and DB2INST1 indicates that the fault monitor is still running on that instance. To turn off the fault monitor, type the following command as the instance owner:

   db2fm -i db2inst1 -D
