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.
Add an ability to start a q subscription via MODIFY on the Capture started task
Currently Q Capture subscriptions can be interacted with either via MODIFY command invoked on a Q Capture started task, or SQL insert statements executed on table IBMQREP_SIGNAL. For many customers, executing a MODIFY command to perform an action ...
Ability to create ASNMON Oracle Control Tables via GUI without Federated Server
We have QREP Data Replication established between DB2 Z/OS and Oracle on Linux. We are using Oracle Native Apply on the target DBMS.As per discussions and conclusions in the referenced PMR, 85301,442,000, we have 2 issues:1) We can not directly...
Kafka evolves as a platform for real time data streaming, analytics, and event processing. For enterprise customers the challenge is to let data originating on IBM z flow to Kafka. Popular options are Kafka APIs, MQ, data replication. Only data re...
Provide Replication Center and Replication Dashboard functionality within DSM
We would like to see the Replication Center tool functionality for IIDR Queue Replication added under the Data Server Manager(DSM) Umbrella. Today we are using Replication Center to administer and monitor our IIDR Queue Replication environment. Th...
Display of replication throughput per subscription
Today Q Apply stores detailed performance statistics on queue level. This idea raises the request to store certain Q Apply throuput statistics (like rows_processed) on subscription level. Background: Today it is very difficult / sometime impossibl...
Automate restart of IIDR tasks when RRS terminates
We had issues with RRS recently which were solved via a maintenance cycle. During those issues, our IIDR Capture and Apply tasks failed and required manual restart. We have the option TERM=N enabled yet the Capture/Apply tasks were not restarted w...
Requesting Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal to Temporal Table
This RFE/Idea is to request Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal source to Temporal Table target. The existing Q-Replication only supports from Temporal to Temporal tables. For reporting within FTM (Financial Transaction Manager), there is...
The Q-Replication apply programm shall be able to call the Db2 High Performance Unload (HPU) utility by the HPU stored procedure
in enterprise warehouse and OLTP areas of DB2 installations exist often very big databases with several tera bytes (often 100 of TBs) of data.
For example we have several OLTP databases with more than 20TB and tables with billion of recor...
ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE not detected by IIDR QREP or CDC
If 'ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE' is executed against a table that is actively replicating, any changes made to the source data will not be captured or replicated until â€˜ALTER table DATA CAPTURE CHANGES' is executed. This would cause the targe...
Q-Replication Apply program shall be able to recognize if a column-organized table contains already a dictionary
the current implementation of the Q-Replication apply program for an automatic LOAD operation on column-organized target tables does not recognize if a dictionary already exist.
A column compression dictionary is used to compress data ...
