How to display DB2 db2diag.log appended records using follow parameter

08 September,2014 by Jack Vamvas

Question: How can I view  db2diag.log entries as they are written? While I’m troubleshooting ,  I open the db2diag.log file and then press refresh to see the latest entries.

Answer: Use the db2diag –follow parameter to continuously display appended records as they appear in db2diag.log. The records continue to appear until you execute Ctrl + C.

  

Db2diag –f
Db2diag –follow
