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.

Parallel Runstats collection on a partitioned-table(RIMS)

[JPMC EDW] Currently, when a Runstats is performed on a partitioned-table, each partition is processed sequentially. This can prolong the duration of Runstats operation, especially for very large tables where Runstats duration is concerning. Idea...

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...

db2 "export to employee.del of del modified by coldel\t select * from test1"

DB2 Export cannot export data with a two-digit delimiter (\t). If I want to export data separated by \t, DB2 will not be able to support it

Add flag into db2advis to ignore existing indexes

When troubleshooting performance issues on tables with a high number of indexes, the db2advis tool kind of falls flat. What we have done to get around this is to restore a backup of the database in question, drop all indexes, and then run the db2...

LOAD should allow collecting STATISTICS without USE PROFILE option for row based tables

LOAD collects "default" statistics like auto-runstats when loading into BLU (RUNSTATS ... WITH DISTRIBUTION AND SAMPLED DETAILED INDEXES ALL).I assume this got not changed because the fear of incompatibility with existing behavior. Therefore pleas...

Reduce size of LOAD COPY dataset for tables with LOBs and XML

A LOAD COPY where the table being acted on has one or more LOB columns is much larger than the original data / final table size / post load backup. From investigation it is based on the pagesize and extentsize of the underlying tablespace. This...

DBA needs control over Jobs from Automatic Maintenance

We recently had an outage due to automatic maintenance - reorg on a table to reclaim extents. Application A (db2hmon) was running a reorg reclaim on a table and Application B which was already connected to the database and was running a job, as a...

Allow DB2 to export data from a base table in normal state even if index tablespace is in Rollforward pending state

DB2 should allow exporting data from a base table (tablespace) in normal state even if the index tablespace is in Rollforward pending state (or other abnormal state). This would allow us to rebuilt the table without losing data.DB2 should also al...
