  • When using the new monitor (job DB4STATS running in subsystem QUSRWRK, profile parameter as4/dbmon/central_collector=1), you will always see 0 for the number of rows returned in queries, both in the overview screens and in Visual Explain.
  • When using the old monitor (still the default for all shipped releases), transactions ST04 and DBACockpit have no data about SQL performance.
  • The plan cache dump aborts with the below error in the joblog:
