    Based on the information provided in UIM product documentation- https://docops.ca.com/ca-unified-infrastructure-management-probes/ga/en/alphabetical-probe-articles/db2-db2-database-monitoring


    It says that "The probe uses APIs for DB2 snapshots and tablespace statistics to extract information about DB2 servers."


    This means that UIM still uses the higher overhead legacy DB2 snapshot monitoring and doesn't take advantage of low-overhead monitoring which has been available since DB2 9.7+? IBM has stopped adding more enhancements to the legacy snapshot monitoring since DB2 9.7 (8 years ago).
