How do you display and manage Health Checks for the CA DB2 suite of tools?

 

Instructions:

Customization and display of the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS product health checks must be done through the IBM Health Checker itself not through any CA DB2 product feature. Please reference the IBM Health Checker for z/OS User Guide for additional details on how to manage health checks. The CA DB2 for z/OS health check owner is CA_DB2. The check name depends on the individual check performed for each CA DB2 for z/OS product. For example, CA SYSVIEW for DB2 (Former CA Insight Performance Monitor for DB2 for z/OS) check names start with DB2_IDB2_* or CA RC/Migrator for DB2 for z/OS check names start with
DB2_RCM_*.

If you have a license for CA SYSVIEW for z/OS then you can display and update health check parameters with SYSVIEW commands. For example, with HCHECKER (HC) command you will display all health checks performed in the LPAR, with HCHECKER CA_DB2 command you will display only the health checks performed for the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS products.
