Hello,

Is there an easier way to create DB2 tables like the administrative MON_* views? I have tried doing this from data studio by selecting the views generating the ddl that way but what I got looks like I have to manually striping everything off but the list of column elements that is returned if the view is called. That seems a long way to do this.

Any recommendation will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

HI!

If you want some sort of historical tables for the adminstrative views then you can look
at this link
http://www.ebenner.com/db2dba_blog/?p=9

It has DDL's for certain history tables as well as how to populate them.
For other adminstrative views that are not covered there you could
try to issue

create table mon..._hist like mon...view
or
CREATE TABLE SCHEMA.MON_..._HIST AS (
    SELECT *
    FROM SCHEMA.MON_...VIEW
) WITH NO DATA

Hope this helps.

Regards,

TomasHelgi,

Thank you for the link. I have had the chance to read through the content and what I find is that the snapshop monitoring strategy is slowly being abandoned in favor of the new MON_GET_* monitor views introduced in DB2 9.7 and later. That is the way I wish to go in building my performance database warehouse tables. Having said that, the SQL pseudo code you have provided gives me something towork with. I will try to gn the tables from what you have shown.

Again thank you for writing...
