DBConnect - DB2 - Configuring database for "Rising Column" Bigint vs Integer

We are looking to add a "Rising Column" to one of our zOS DB2 databases to allow Splunk dbtail to work properly.

Does anyone know if Splunk can handle the "Rising Column" identity being set to BIGINT? My DBA prefers using BIGINT vs INTEGER due to the 2 Billion plus rows we expect.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

The way of dbmon-tail works is described above.

It should not depend on the data type of rising column.
