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 option in db2look to not extract LBAC every time
All of the LBAC definitions are extracted and printed every time the -e option is specified. If one just wants the DDL for a single table, all of the LBAC definitions are printed, even if that table has nothing to do with LBAC. A -nolbac option wo...
db2pd -inst attemps to collect PureScale information in a non-PureScale environment
db2pd -inst attempts to collect - quiesceinfo and - iperiodic even though they are not appropriate options for the non-PureScale environment. It seems like db2pd should be smart enough to collect the information appropriate for the operating envir...
In db2look, for mimic stats, option to include commit each X sentences
In order to mimic an environment, the stats are extracted via db2look, and then inserted a regular execution of the generate file. The problem is that the generated updates could be easily more than 15000 sentences and it has two issues: If execut...
