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.

Allow configuration to abort Db2 restore if tablespace errors occur

Today, Db2 Restore can continue with a subset of tablespaces if e.g. same tablespaces fail to acquire containers. In the end of roll forward completes, but some tablespaces did not complete and remain in 'storage definition pending' and need to ha...

db2adutl performance

When we are deleting logs in TSM every week, we encounter very poor performance for deleting > 1000 logs for each DB2 partition. There are 131 DB2 partitions. Deleting the same amount of logs with dsmc del . . . . . works much faster. We assume...

Direct read of Archive logs from TSM server when using db2 rollforward on crossnode restore operations

Usually our Db2 backups to TSM. Occasionally we restore a Db2 system in another operating center from where we have to access to the TSM server for Restore/rollforward.In the target environment the Db2 archive logs are extracted via db2adutl after...

Verify OVERFLOWLOGPATH is valid at the BEGINNING and allow override in RESTORE DATABASE command.

When restoring a DB2/LUW database Db2 currently restores the database and then abneds if the OVERFLOWLOGPATH is invalid. A restore can take many hours and having the restore fail at the end of the restore wastes all those hours.

Avoid Single point of failure for Db2's critical files

If the critical files of Db2 damage, e.g. by erroneously deletion, file system corruption Db2 will no longer be available (#usable). Since some of the critical files are permanently updated a restore of the critical files does solve the problem. A...

Db2 should request logs in both Log Archive Method

When performing a roll forward, and the LOGARCHMETH1 is configured to a external mechanism like Netbackup, and LOGARCHMETH2 is a local disk, Db2 will ask the first method and wait for the log, even if it takes too long for retrieval. In this case,...

Db2 LUW Automatic maintenance window setting

Current automatic maintenance does not allow to have multiple offline or online maintenance windows, only one of each. For example, we have automatic online maintenance window for 4 hours at night daily but need to have another definition for 2...

Restore Critical Files [only]

In case of a mistakenly deletion of files in/below the instance home directory of Db2 it should be possible to restore [only] these files/directories etc. At the moment if files/directories are mistakenly deleted, a complete database restore would...

Rewind the current database from logs

Opposite to roll forward, it will be great to have the possibility to perform a rewind of a database (in roll-forward state or normal one), to a previous state with the logs. It will be like uncommit, or a general rollback.
