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.
Alter IX / TS page size at individual partition level
For MSOR application: For very large TS / IX with thousands of partitions, deployed in a 24 x 7 environment, the restriction of having to alter page size at the TS / IX level rather than by individual partitions is unrealistic for customers. The ...
Customer would like to have the option to create a DPSI on a very large partitioned tablespace where NPI is not desired which is "unique within partition". In the particular case where this would be especially useful, the partitioning is done wit...
Instrument IFCID 0003 and IFCID 0148 counter(s) to show the maximum amount of Workfile used by a thread (4K blocks total, or separate by tables/indexes, or separate by 4K/32K Workfiles -- implementation choice.)It is difficult to manage Workfile a...
We ran to a limit of 4Gig for an index partition on a tablebased table with 30 partitions, DSSIZE 32 and extended adressablility. In the manuals we found that the piecesize for such a definition is limited to 4 Gig for TS with DSSIZE L...
Async lock request wait time in CF shows up in "Not Accounted" in the DB2 Accounting information
Because of approx 9 km distance between 2 data centers and also (in testing environment) non-optimal configuration of the CF setup, we get a log of ASYNC requests for LOCKs. As descibed in the PMR the time for this will not be accounted in relatab...
Extension of check constraints for XML content Add business integrity rules:ALTER TABLE NAME3XML-Column CONTRAINT xmlcheck CHECK banknumber = NAME3.BANKNUMBER;Support for check conditions on XML documents as for traditional relational tables.
Allow better system wide control over ASUTIME limits
Provide a system wide default ASUTIME value for stored procedures (not NO LIMIT) via a ZPARM parameter. This will allow us to prevent runaway stored procedures (especially those in a tight loop) from running away with the CPU.
Remove restriction that FRRECOV to PPRC Primary parameter must be set before BACKUP SYSTEM
Remove the restriction that the FRRECOV to PPRC Primary Volume parameter has to be set before running BACKUP SYSTEM if the ability to restore the DB2 backup to pprc primary volumes using flashcopy might ever be desired.
