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.

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.

Allow to access a database during a pause in a roll forward

During a roll forward, it will be helpful to access the database in read mode in order to identify the point where to open the database. If it is not the desired point, then apply more logs, until find the desired point.

Allow to exclude index pages from backup - recreate after restore

Db2 backup is saving all database objects regardless if the objects (especially indexes) could be re-created, because the objects contain just redundant data. Db2 already provides the DBM CFG parameter INDEXREC which configures when an invalid i...

db2adutl parallelism

Usually our Db2 backups to TSM are performed using parallelism, sometimes up to parallelism 10. Occasionally we restore a Db2 system in another operating center from where we have no access to the TSM server. In the source environment the Db2 back...

BACKUP command option: ALL TABLESPACES EXCEPT (tablespace-name)

Customer has a huge number of tablespaces (f.e. 10000) and wants to do a tablespace backup of all tablespaces except of for example 3 tablespaces. We would like to do the following: $ db2 BACKUP DB myDB ALL TABLESPACES EXCEPT (unnecessary...

Allow DROP db in QUIESCE mode

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. So, ...

Improve backup configuration

Actually we need to define some environment variables like DSMI_DIR, DSMI_CONFIG to implement a TSM backup. So in case we forget to configure this at first moment we will need to do an instance restart. Would be better to consider some dynamic par...
