OMEGAMON DB2 V5.11 features the new enhanced 3270 user interface

OMEGAMON DB2 V5.11 was recently released.  There were several interesting enhancements and additions to the tool.  One of the more interesting new features is support for the new enhanced 3270 user interface.  With the addition of OMEGAMON DB2 to the fold, this means that three core OMEGAMONs (z/OS, CICS, DB2) now support the enhanced 3270 ui. 

One of the nice aspects of the enhanced ui is the ability to do your monitoring using an integrated interface that enables you to monitor from a single point of view.  Here is an example of the default KOBSTART panel, now showing DB2 information on the display.

From this central screen, as the example shows, you can easily navigate to z/OS, CICS or DB2. 

From the main panel (KOBSTART), you can then drill down into DB2 specific detailed views, and drill in on commonly used displays, such as DB2 thread views.  Here is an example of how you would drill in on DB2 threads. 

From this you you can drill in on detail for each thread executing on the system, and do analysis of what the threads are doing and where they are spedning their time.
