ILMT DB2 Standby 100 PVU

Per the licensing information for DB2,if the primary server(s) are licensed under the PVU metric, then on the secondary/standby server(s) the Program must be licensed for 100 PVUs per physical server. If the Program is used on a cluster of servers configured to work together using either database partitioning or pureScale clustering technology, then the servers in that cluster need only be licensed for 100 PVUs collectively, HOWEVER, TAD4D does not provide identification of the DB2 node that is in idle/standby etc or the calculation of the 100 PVUs for these special nodes. Requesting that TAD4D provide this calculation.
