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.
DB2 is not able to repair a single bad page, i.e. to perform a page-level recovery.This causes a downtime because the only solution is the execution of the OFFLINE procedures, like RESTORE/RECOVER/db2dart.
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.
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...
The DB2 LUW automatic backup creation, which is enabled by the parameters AUTO_MAINT and AUTO_DB_BACKUP and configured by the 'AUTO_BACKUP' maintenance policy XML, currently does not consider the db2 automatic pruning functionality, configured by ...
If the number of buffers and buffer size are not user specified in the BACKUP DB command then Db2 limits the utility heap size allocation to 2G. Please remove this cap to allow for higher default allocation of the utility heap size which in turn s...
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 LUW includes a solution for automatic backup creation, which is enabled by AUTO_MAINT and AUTO_DB_BACKUP parameters and configured by the 'AUTO_BACKUP' maintenance policy XML..The policy XML file does not allow to specify options to enable bac...
