Limit Collection Activity

You can limit collection activity by plan name, SQL error, and thread-based keys (location name, correlation ID, and authorization ID).
You can limit collection activity by specifying filters for the following thread-based keys: location name, correlation ID, plan name, authorization ID, and connection type. You can apply these filters to the following statistics collection activities:
  • CA Detector® for DB2 for z/OS
    statistics collection
  • Dynamic SQL statistics collection
  • Additional keys statistics collection
  • Standard activity table/index statistics collection
  • Dynamic SQL table/index statistics collection
To limit your collection activity, add the appropriate filters to your CA Detector collection profile. You can then use these filters when you start the collection. If you start the collection through the product panels, specify your profile name and Plan Excl/Incl List=Y on the Start Collection Display. If you start the collection by using the START(DTR) command, specify the profile name and PLNX(Y) in the command.
