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.

issue DISPLAY BLOCKERS instead of DISPLAY CLAIMERS when DRAIN timeout
Currently when DRAIN fails during REORG, a DISPLAY CLAIMERS is issued. The draw back is there is no "age" information, so user does not know which thread is the blocker, because the claimer could also be waiter.
Db2 z/OS real storage management (Case TS006310627)
After the observation of a significantly increase of the CPU consumption in our Db2-MSTR regions, we opened case TS006310627 at IBM since the reason was not evident. The result of the analysis with IBM showed up that probably APAR PH31684 caused t...

Db2 z/OS limitations with ALTER TABLESPACE MOVE TABLE
I love the upcoming FL508 and this new availability even though I have not used it. Looking deeper into the Knowledge Center there seems to be some limitations that I would like to see resolved.
The two items are:
