This plugin tests the database software version through querying a specific IBM DB2 database. It can either simply return the version string, or compare it against a blacklist/whitelist version file to determine software version compliance. Because it executes a real database login, it can also be used to determine database up|down.
The plugin requires the database to be set up for accepting network connections and being reachable through that network port from the Nagios server. The plugin uses IBM's DB2 JDBC driver, this driver must be installed and found through the Java classpath on the server executing this plugin. For more information, please see the manual page of this plugin at:

This plugin belongs to set of plugins checking database software versions. It is also available for MS SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL.

The links direct to another DB2 plugin.
The correct one for the documentation is: http://nagios.frank4dd.com/plugins/manual/check_dbversion_db2.htm
For the sources:

Also, the db-instance mean the database name, not the instance in DB2.
