Show a status for Replication on the ADM "AT" screen

It should be easy to identify tables that are Disabled for Replication.

The user can go to the KEYS screen one table at a time, so see status like this:

Status for table . . : TECH.TBASP_ALERT_HISTRY
Acceleration status : 1 Load status : Loaded
Replication status . : 0 Details . . :

Comments on this:

1) Knowing to use KEYS is not obvious to a random DBA who may be using the screen.

The "?" command screen describes KEYS as follows (no mention of replication):
KEYS Show details of accelerated table keys and status

Why would this information not be put (also) on the "I" (interpret) screen?

2) Displaying "0" and Details being blank is not user friendly.

The screen would better match IBM Data Studio and IBM Data Server Manager, if the Details was to display "Disabled".

3) It is a shame there is no status for Replication on the main AT screen.

I think displaying an "R" status, next to the "E" status could be done.

Personally, I have no use for the Remote Name and Remote Schema columns. IDAA is a black box, and knowing what the table is named inside that box has no purpose for me.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? z/OS DBAs who need to work with Db2 tables that are being replicated to IDAA
How should it work?
  1. Have an "R" column next to the "E" column on the "AT" screen

  2. Display the Replication status on the Interpret ("I") screen also

  3. Display "Disabled" instead of blanks for a table that is not enabled for replication

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification I would say Urgent since this is basic functionality that is missing and/or poorly presented; however DBAs can use other tools (such as IBM Data Studio and IBM Data Server Manager)
