DB2 - HADR_FLAGS metric to be Monitored and Alerted

Hi Team!
According to Instana documentation, sounds "HADR_FLAGS" metric is not collected, correct ?
So when a tablespaces is invalid or error state on the Standby database, the HADR_FLAGS field will display
Monitor HADR_FLAGS is very usefull to Alert DBAs about  Tablespace is corrupted from Database and take action as soon as possible.

Database Member 0 -- Database DB -- Active -- Up 29 days 01:24:49 -- Date 2023-06-27-
                            HADR_ROLE = PRIMARY
                        HADR_SYNCMODE = NEARSYNC
                           HADR_STATE = PEER
                           HADR_FLAGS = STANDBY_TABLESPACE_ERROR
                  PRIMARY_MEMBER_HOST =
                  STANDBY_MEMBER_HOST =

If Instana collect that metric a build in Alert can be easily set.

Appreciate any help!

    Since we have many commitments to customers, prospects, and escalations, our roadmap is full for the next ~3 quarters and we don't have enough capacity to work on this feature.

    After this period we will reconsider this feature.

    Thank you for your understanding and patience.
