Warning Message Needed when MaxCollectionWindowLength property value less than QM Interval Length RFE 124996


A warning message in Query Monitor is needed to alert the user when the current value of the MaxCollectionWindowLength property is less than the defined length of a QM interval.   In fact, the QM User's Guides recommends that you set the MaxCollectionWindowLength parameter to be a
whole integer multiple of the Db2 Query Monitor interval length.   The warning message should indicate that when using Smarter Reorg Recommendations, performance data will only be collected for the duration indicated by the value of the MaxCollectionWindowLength property.

Use Case
The default value of the MaxCollectionWindowLength property  is 3600000 milliseconds.  However, the user is able to define a QM interval of any time duration.  Loss of performance data will potentially occur when MaxCollectionWindowLength property is less than the duration of the interval length.   The message will alert the user to change this property value to avoid any data loss.
