    So was it some form of code page conversion then?

      Yes. I’m a tad worried about how these settings will affect me doing updates and such with non-ASCII characters, so we’ll see how that goes.

      That leads to some interesting colors when working with a white background in iterm2. Not sure if I care enough about the colors to go back to working on a black background.

      Screen shot of this method when using iterm2 and a white background.

  3. You can easily run db2top remote. Just install express-C on a linux PC (or linux virtual machine inside your windows desktop) and catalog all your remote databases there. Just start db2top on linux passing the required parameters and you get the best presentation.
    This way you also monitor the DB2 databases running on windows, which do not have db2top (then again you have the good-old db2mon over there).
    Combined with a nice desktop or tmux you can monitor many databases simultaneously.
