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.

Case TS000932532 - Load should be able to bypass a GENERATED-ALWAYS-from-variable column

ProblemA load on a table containing a certain type of GENERATED ALWAYS column fails with the very odd message "Unexpected load gencol section".Research pointed out that LOAD cannot handle in any way a GENERATED ALWAYS column getting its informatio...

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...

auto-reorg OLR for cleanup of overflows

Auto-reorg should use online window to issue REORG CLEANUP OVERFLOWS (and also trigger a RUNSTATS afterwards).Problem to solve: SQL optimizer thinks overflow accesses are quite expensive and then might to start choosing different access plans that...

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.

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...

Improve performance of retrieving large result sets

Performance of Db2 client/server communications in a network environment needs to be significantly increased in cases where large amount of data (100s of MB or more) are being moved between Db2 server and remote client.This needs to be provided no...
