Batch Report Writer
Batch Report Writer lets you process Db2 trace files in the batch mode.
The Batch Report Writer lets you process Db2 trace files in the batch mode using
CA SYSVIEW for DB2.
The Batch Report Writer uses requests like the data collector to process trace data and produce the requested reports.
Any trace record that can be specified in a request that is processed by the online data collector, can be specified in a request run in batch with the Batch Report Writer. The only exception is requests that use data that is sampled from control blocks. These requests cannot be used with the Batch Report Writer.
Use the Db2 command
-START TRACEcommand with DEST(SMF) parameter to instruct Db2 to capture the trace data in form of SMF records. The records then can be used with Batch Report Writer independently whether the Data Collector is running or not. For the command description, see Db2 documentation. For the trace class and IFCID information for each batch report, see Batch Reports.
