Database activity monitoring (DAM) : Configuring target database monitoring : Configuring DB2 monitoring
Configuring DB2 monitoring
FortiDB uses either a DB2 agent or the TCP/IP sniffer to collect audit information from DB2 databases.
The TCP/IP sniffer is provided by the appliance version of FortiDB only. For detailed configuration instructions, see “Configuring monitoring using the TCP/IP sniffer (all database types)”.
To configure auditing for a DB2 database using the DB2 agent
To change the collection method, first stop monitoring. You cannot change this setting while FortiDB is monitoring the target database.
1. Ensure the required database pre-configuration is complete.See “DB2 target database pre-configuration”.
2. In the navigation menu, click DB Activity Monitoring > Monitoring Management, and then click the name of the target that connects to the database you want to monitor.
3. On the General tab, for Collection Method, select DB2 Agent.
4. Click Test to confirm the connection with the method you selected.
5. On the General tab, under Monitoring, click Start Monitoring.
