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,
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.
Need the ability to increase the number of logical log buffers from 3 to handle peak transaction loads
Currently there are three logical log buffers. When transaction load increases sometimes all three logical log buffers are being flushed, especially in an unbuffered logged database environment. In such an environment increasing the size of the lo...
Allow defining rolling container windows defined on user defined calendars
Currently time series rolling window containers can only be defined to use a predetermined set of calendars to define the number of time points included in each window. Those are: day, week, month, and year. There is a need for more flexibility. T...

Informix has a rows/page limit of 255 rows/page.Perhaps this was not a problem originally but over time we have seen new features:larger page sizes (up to 16 kB against 2 kB or 4 kB previously, dependent on operating system).compression option.Thi...
Since the improved readahead code was established, onstat -p and the associated SMI tables no longer report all readahead pages nor all usage of those pages so that it is impossible to monitor the efficiency of readahead and so be able to determin...
Upgrade of secondary server without restore from primary
Assuming we're upgrading a sever which is a primary server in a MACH-11 cluster, it should be able to save all the new page images (of changed pages during the conversion) in the file system. Very similar to what we do in the CONVERSION_GUARD feat...
