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.
Standardize and allow LISTDEF PARTEVEL syntax for MODIFY STATISTICS utility
Currently MODIFY STATISTICS utility does not support LISTDEF with PARTLEVEL and throws an error like in example: LISTDEF DB2RK INCLUDE TABLESPACE DS0HUZX.S0HU37P PARTLEVEL(20) TEMPLATE COPYIC DSN(&SS..ICR.&DB..&TS..P&PA..&UQ.) ...
As mentioned in Case TS004024647 there are some situations where inserts in lob structures do not provide the expected performance. Instead they cause massive CPU consumption in the Coupling Facility for the spacemap search. The problem is excessi...
New Authorization for SELECT all tables (DataSelect)
We use the DataAccess Auth to let Select. Insert, Update & Delete on all tables. But we'll appreciate also a new Auth for letting only Select on all tables. That's why we thought about the name DataSelect.
Allow us to use the profile tables to set the ACCUMACC zparm more granular
At the present time we have ACCUMACC set to 20. We have had to set this to 1 for problem determination purposes. In our active system it causes issues with our SMF jobs when we have done this for even a short time. We would like the ability to use...
RLF DSNRLMTxx table field RLFIP allow subnet wildcard
we have a need to restrict threads with RLF by specifying userid and source IP with a subnet wild card. the source ips change with each "logon". In order to restrict all possible ips under a given subnet, we would need to enter 255 X 255 ips. allo...
DSNT376I message don't supply total information to solve the problem analisys
I found that as soon as the DB2 Lock Escalation message occurred (DSNI031I), DB2 seems to begin rejecting the ESS SQL calls against this tablespace, *immediately* without waiting the DB2 lock timeout interval. This probably explains why there is n...
Our installation has repeatedly had trouble with Db2 shutting down in a timely fashion for IPLs. We have taken dumps and sent them to IBM and IBM has stated repeatedly that the delay in shutdown involves dataset close. We set DSMAX very high and h...
All DB2 customers use RUNSTATS. The RUNSTATS results are used by the DB2 optimizer to determine optimal access plans. In 99.999 percent of all cases this is not a problem. However, there are some objects (tablespaces / indices) for which a RUNSTAT...
Profile Tables today support only remote connections and no support for local/batch applications. When PT is used to set certain registers, it only works for remote applications and local apps needs to be changed to add certain SET commands.
Expand error message -532 and and output parent table name and child table name
