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.
In our environment, the replay on the standy database is not able to keep up with the speed at which the PRIMARY is able to process data. Our replay gaps often exceed 100 GB, and this means that any failover would be delayed. We use HADR for high ...

In the COBOL program an INCLUDE statement is used where a DCLGEN is declared. The copybook ZSTBF02 is attached. When the COBOL source contains an SQL statement where a column is used which is not declared in the DCLGEN, a warning is issued in the ...
As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve instance data without connecting to a regular (tenant) database
Several of the in-memory monitoring table functions and views return data which is instance-related. Still, a database connection is needed just for the purpose of having authentication / authorization / connection handle. This requires administra...
As Db2 system / instance administrator, I need to retrieve the list of active databases using SQL
Coming from snapshot monitoring, the goal is to use in-memory monitoring and SQL in the least intrusive way to monitor the health of a Db2 instance and its databases. Right now, this is done by connecting to a non-tenant dummy database and running...
We have a cloud-native strategy that Db2u fits better than most other RDBMSes. We also have a fairly mature Kubernetes infrastructure. We would really like to run db2u on native Kubernetes, without OpenShift.
