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.

DB2 should use the HWM value instead of total allocation for restores on AUTO storage dbs

BACKUP INCLUDE LOGS should add logs to backup image as soon as they are closed

Today the log files get added to backup image at end of backup, which could easily cause that log files need to be retrieved from archive that they can be added to backup image. Adding the log files as soon as possible would avoid time consuming a...

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.

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.

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, if ...

Release the restriction of restoring and rollforward through a topology change in pureScale

Ability to recover an individual table

We need the ability to recover an individual table faster. HPU does not work weel on VLDB databases as it does not support pipes and there is no indexing of tables within a TS in a backup image.
