Issue/Introduction

Storing SMF Data



One of my applications received an sqlcode -805. I've tried to get more information through option 6 - Thread History, but information from last week is no longer available. 

Is there a way that I can use CA Insight for DB2 to read SMF dataset created during the time of the event? If yes, how? 

Environment

z/os DB2

Resolution

To answer your question re storing History Data. 

 

Yes you can unload history data into DB2 tables and then run SQL queries 

against these tables.
