    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.

    I believe that WatchDog is a third party software tool for monitoring DB2 (and other db's like Oracle). It is not a part of DB2 or any other IBM product.
