IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  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.

Add db2move option to read/write compressed files

Sometimes during a migration diskspace runs low. It would be great to have an option for db2move, which reads/writes files compressed or pipe it through gzip/bz2/... This would lead to a storage reduction during migrations of roughly 80% plus red...

Add the new IF EXIST functionality to db2look

The new syntax IF EXISTS for CREATE and DROP TABLES (see https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/ideas/DB24LUW-I-259) should also be generated by db2look on demand. This would help and simplify migration scenarios with db2look. This should also be a...

timeout option for log archiving sessions / db2vend on WINDOWS

We work with DB2 on WINDOWS and an external vendor (EMC Networker) for backups and archive logging. If network or the vendor have a problem, the archive logging forever tries to use the vendor process and in the meantime writes to a FAILARCHPATH o...

Performance penalty in LOAD when using large bufferpool

LOAD RESETDICTIONARYONLY and other LOADs take very long, if table resides in large buffer.The limitation also applies to LOAD on row based tables, but bufferpools on BLU systems tend to be much larger.

LOAD to COMMIT extent allocation

LOAD is today a single transaction. It does not create much log volume, but LOAD might run long if lots of data need to be loaded. This can lead to log full disk situation, if concurrent transactions create a large log volume.The extent allocatio...
