What files should be backed up to maintain consistency in case of disaster recovery for Detector for Db2 for z/OS (PDT) and
Subsystem Analyzer for Db2 for z/OS (PSA)?
If you choose to backup your Detector data both items below should be included to ensure consistency:
1) PDT Control File
2) 3 Datastore History files
You may also want to backup your Collection Profile. That way, if a system failure occurs and you have to use your backup files,
you will ensure that you are collecting data using the same settings as before.

1) PSA Control File
2) 2 Datastore History files
None of the files above are contained in the PTDB database.
