We have installed the DB2 plugin successfully on machines running DB2 on AIX successfully but we are having problems on AS400. When the monitor runs it just stays in a running state and cannot be stopped. When I look at the log all I see is
2017-07-19 12:48:04 INFO [DB2Pligin@AS400] Connecting to DB2, conection string us ... jdbc:db2://etc...
Any ideas why it is not working?
I've seen behavior like that when the monitor cannot reach the host it's running against. Does it run forever or just a significant amount of time - I don't remember if a timeout is specified in the plugin config. Make sure the collector you're running it from can reach and connect to that DB2 instance.
Andrew, Telnet will confirm that there's connectivity at the host level, but what about JDBC connectivity? Is it possible that DB2 is configured to now allow JDBC connections from that Collector host? I don't know DB2 well, but this type of problem happens frequently with Oracle and PostGreSQL environments.
