IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

High Availability in DB2 DPF

db2haicu is useless. We need to configure HA in DPF with TSAMP. That's complex. For other compamy's MPP product, like GP, Vertica, they can complete the HA config very simple, and even there is no down time when one node goes down, but DB2 DPF wil...

Restore from an inline load copy in replace mode

Restore from an inline load copy in replace mode. Currently, we are obliged to restore from the backup first and after to rollforward so that the load backup were used. It makes sense for a load in insert mode, but for a load in replace mode, it i...

DB2 LUW: db2ls does not list the TSA component

We want to check if TSAMP (TSA) is installed on a server of a HADR cluster. But db2ls -q -a -b does not report the component. But you can specify COMP=TSAMP in a response file, so it seems to be a valid component. Workaround: Use /install/tsamp/d...

Class 2 In-DB2 CPU times are often zero

With DB2's current IFI implementation, class 2 times are updated when a class 2 event occurs. Consequently, when IFCID 148 is requested for a thread that is In-DB2, no CPU times can be seen until the SQL statement ends. IFCID 148 must reflect th...
