An Intro to IBM Data Server Manager

October 6, 2015

In March IBM announced IBM Data Server Manager. I find this product interesting because, in contrast to the Windows/Eclipse-based Data Studio, Data Server Manager is a browser-based tool for managing and optimizing the performance of IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows databases.

While Data Server Manager doesn't currently support DB2 for z/OS, its capabilities across LUW platforms make it relevant for mainframe users. And it's certainly possible that IBM will bring the solution to DB2 for z/OS in the future.

IBM Data Server Manager comes in two editions:
  • Data Server Manager Base Edition offers database administration and basic performance monitoring capabilities to all DB2 clients at no charge.
  • Data Server Manager Enterprise Edition offers more advanced capabilities including enhanced monitoring, centralized configuration management, refined performance management and query tuning capabilities with expert advice. Data Server Manager Enterprise Edition is packaged with DB2 advanced editions or DB2 Performance Management Offering for non-advanced DB2 Editions.
If you'd like to know more, I encourage you to check out this overview. Download IBM Data Server Manager here.

I look forward to installing and learning more about Data Server Manager.
