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.
Support of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for automated HADR(with TSA)
Customers are able to deploy a pair of virtual machines(VMs) from the Google Cloud Platform(GCP) and configure a Db2 HADR database pair between the two VMs. They can then furthermore configure HADR automation with TSA via the db2haicu utility. The...
db2pd command to report exact operation that causes HADR replay only window
Currently only "Replay only window is active" is reported in db2diag.log, but not the detailed information about the operation that causes the replay only window, such as exact DDL, reorg, runstats, and etc. statements.
aï¼‰HADR replay master contends with replay worker on queue, and lots of latch contention were observed.bï¼‰HADR replay has IO performance issue. Lots of random IOs were observed, and there should be some sort of prefetch IO to improve performance.
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 licens...

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.

Ability to query catalog tables and administrative views in stand by
There is an option called Read On Standby (ROS) that allows to connect and perform selects on the standby role of a HADR cluster. However, this is focussed to business tables. I propose the capability to perform selects on the standby but just on ...
When a Db2 version upgrade is requiered, currently it should be done in the active node. However, there are some scenarios when preparing a standby with a higher version is easier. For example, when migrating to new servers, with higher OS is bett...
