Have you wondered what SQL is being executed against your database and its frequency? DB2 stores that information for all dynamic SQL. A DBA can look at all the dynamic SQL running against their database and decide if the tables are laid out in the correct tablespaces and on the disk (to help with I/O). It also works well with other tips about the DB2 explains and the index advisor to optimize your database to run the best it can. It has been tested on DB2 UDB v7.
To get the info:
db2 reset monitor for database <database-alias> db2 get snapshot for dynamic sql on <database-alias> > to_an_outputfile
