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.

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.

Page-level recovery request.

Possibility to protect any database history entries against automatic deletion

It would be nice, to be able, to protect recovery history entries against automatic deletion, which are not relevant for recovery: "runstats", "load", and "reorg" for example.
