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.
CDC is preventing the PosgreSQL database source to delete its wals files. From what I see, CDC uses logical replication slots but it never seems to update the value of LSN (Log Sequence Number) : it always points to the wal that was current when t...
Possibility to load CDC SMF data into Db2 for z/OS tables for reporting
We customized CDC (Apply and Capture Task) to write several statics into SMF. But as of today there is no official support (JCL/ sampling) how to parse and prepare those SMF data to import them into Db2 tables or spreadsheets for further reporting...
Fastload Refresh for Live Audit mapping for Db2Warehouse as target vs Netezza target
Refreshing a table that is mapped as Live Audit does not use Fastload Refresh to a Db2Warehouse target table.This refresh is much faster when refreshing to a Netezza target tableEvent log shows that JDBC apply mode is used for refresh to Db2Wareho...
Debug program privileges required for CDC software on Windows servers
We are using IBM Infosphere Data Replication (IIDR/CDC) software for real time data ingest of various SQL Server hosts/dbs into DB2 for LUW environment.In our company, Windows 2019 hosts are NIST compliant and they have several policies put in pla...
Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for Management Console
We have run into a situation where we need to have select access on application objects in order to be able to use Management console. However this type of application access is restricted to our 'privileged' IDs, which use 2FA to login. But Manag...
Lower CPU consumption in CDC for Db2 z/OS (local capture): Modify IIDR CDC for z/OS to reduce its priced general CPU consumption by moving some consistent CPU processing to zIIP
This Request for Enhancement is to modify IIDR CDC for z/OS to reduce its priced general CPU consumption by moving some consistent CPU processing to non-priced zIIP eligible processing. IIDR CDC is a large general CPU consumer in our shop resultin...
CDC Should have the ability to better manage source table structure changes.
Currently the recommendation is to stop all DML activity to a source table in DB2 LUW before changing the table structure. In a 24X7 environment this is not practical. Since DB2 is able to handle the change in real time then CDC should be able to.
