Shape the future of IBM!

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,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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.

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...

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...

Improve performance of EXPLAIN

With early versions of DB2 the performance of EXPLAIN was not relevant. Nowadays, where DBAs do thousands of EXPLAINs, the performance and turnaround is getting critical. I think there is room for better performance and throughput of mass EXPLAINs...
