Need to be able to execute custom SQL queries via the DB2 sensor
While the DB2 sensor is good and has many metrics available, it never has exactly the metrics the customer is looking for. A customer has asked that the DB2 sensor be enhanced to allow them to execute a custom SQL statement and capture the results of that custom SQL statement. And, determine the interval that the custom SQL statement be executed. In addition, IBM's older monitoring tools had the capability of execute custom SQL statements. So, if we hope to migrate existing customers to Instana, we need similar capabilities.
We prefer to have this custom monitoring within the database sensors rather than use generic custom monitoring due to the fact that the customer has already provided credentials as part of the DB2 sensor. If they wrote a truly custom monitor, they would need to maintain two sets of credentials to monitor DB2.
