    Question Unanswered: DB2 UDB DBA Tools comparison

    Hi all,
    I am comparing these db2 dba tools available for db2 udb 7.2 on solaris.
    (1) Control Center
    (2) BMC PATROL for DB2
    (2) Quest Central for DB2

    Does anyone has experienced with BMC Patrol or Quest Central ? what's advantage of these two v/s Control center ?

    Also , Is there any DBA task that we can't perform on Control Center ?
    What are disadvantages of Control Center for manageing Large ( 4TB ) and multiple databases ?


    I have task to evalute various DBA tools for Db2 UDB.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: DB2 UDB DBA Tools comparison

    I have used Quest Central and I have found it quiet easy to use and reliable ...

    It has almost all functionaliy of Control Center better presented and better performing using less resources on the client side ...

    I'll vote for Quest Central than Control centre ....

    Con, you will have to pay for it ....

    I agree with Sathyaram too. I have used this tool and it's GOOD. Faster than IBM Control Center and better facilities to post reports on the web etc.

    Quest Central is best.... I recently attended an IBM class (DBA for Linux) and the instructor mentioned Quest Central Several times. Setup is easy.

    But $$$ required.

    Thanks All.
    I am also using evalution version of Quest Central and It's much better than Control Center. It's easy to install too and also, you will access Mainframe databases.

    Does Any one has experience with BMC PATROL for DB2 ? I am trying to install on my test server and see how it performs. But till now one thing I found that it's not easy to install as Quest. You required to install Patrol Agent on database Server and also client on workstations.

    Also, Quest is cheapr than BMC Patrol.


    Thanks Again,
    Kuckoo
