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 an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Support log switch under SET WRITE SUSPEND EXCLUDE LOGS
Today Db2 cannot switch to a log file while write suspend. Therefore a archive log gets performed at beginning of write suspend. Then the write suspend can only last and the database can only work until 1 log file gets full. The time a database is...
db2 backup instance use snapshot wanted We have more then one database in an instance and the current implementation of db2 backup database use snapshot can not handle that. We want to make a snapshot for all databases in an instance and preferabl...
Support AWS IAM Roles with Remote Object Storage using AWS S3 Storage for Backups and Archive Logs
AWS promotes usage of IAM Roles (an AWS construct) for managing access to shared S3 object storage across many EC2 Instances. This is the recommended approach for managing backup images and archive logs. With the added support of S3 remote stora...
Allow for the parallel restore of multiple different db2 tablespaces when Incremental Backups are present
Refer to Case TS000107666 for more info. Allow for the restore of multiple db2 tablespaces in parallel when Incremental Backups are present. Parallel tablespace restore with incremental backups should accommodate: rebuild db restore (with subset ...
DB2 should use the HWM value instead of total allocation for restores on AUTO storage dbs
This is general problem for db2 restore with automatic storage environments. The redirected restore requires total space allocated on source DB tablespaces instead of traditional HWM space requirements. This increases the space requirements on the...
Like DB2_LOAD_COPY_NO_OVERRIDE a registry to overrides NONRECOVERABLE Load operations is required.
Like DB2_LOAD_COPY_NO_OVERRIDE a registry is required which overrides NONRECOVERABLE Load operations to a defined value, because for data center operations any Load operation is critical.DB2_LOAD_NONRECOVERABLE_OVERRIDE=COPY YES USE TSM and DB2_LO...
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.
In a shared instance, (multiple DBs serving different applications) its almost impossible to DROP a database, without having to shutdown the entire Instance.
In order to drop the database, it must be deactivated, otherwise it fails.
