  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

TSA - Not scalable

TSA Does not Scale, with each database added it consumes 5 - 8% CPU.In our system ZLinux this is the only option we have for auto failover. When we have 10 Databases we are now consuming 50 - 80% CPU just to run TSA and having to pay extra licensi...

BACKUP Performance: Incremental and Delta backups should not have to read all tablespace pages.(RIMS)

Backup currently reads ALL pages in the tablespace to examine the pageLSN in order to determine if a page should be included in the image. This is poor for performance, customer want this addressed using a 21th century approach.

Improve HADR standby replay performance

a)HADR replay master contends with replay worker on queue, and lots of latch contention were observed.b)HADR replay has IO performance issue. Lots of random IOs were observed, and there should be some sort of prefetch IO to improve performance.
