We'd like to use the db2 probe (v 4.09) to monitor DB2 version 9.5.  The DB2 client is 10.5, which appears to be compatible with the 9.5 DB2 database.  In the release notes, there appears to be a bit of conflicting information as provided here:

Probe Specific Requirements Section:

  • DB2 Client V8.1 FP13 or higher
  • DB2 versions 10.1 and 10.5


Installation Considerations Section:

  • The probe supports DB2 client library versions greater than or equal to the target DB2 server version. For example, to monitor DB2 server version 9.5, you must use the DB2 client libraries of version 9.5 or higher on the machine where the probe is deployed.



So with that, is the DB2 version 9.5 supported?  Are versions such as DB2 9.5 unsupported but able to be used?


Hoping someone can clarify.   Thanks,
