Unanswered: Total number of gateway connections - what is this?
on my db2 v8 fp11 on Linux I am trying to see what is happening with connections. So I have executed command:
db2inst1@lin9db28:~> db2 get snapshot for database manager | grep connections
Remote connections to db manager = 24
Remote connections executing in db manager = 0
Local connections = 0
Local connections executing in db manager = 0
Total number of gateway connections = 717208
Current number of gateway connections = 11
Gateway connections waiting for host reply = 0
Gateway connections waiting for client request = 11
What is "Total number of gateway connections"? It is such a big number... Are this 717208 connections right now or is this some kind of counter?
