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.

Performance penalty in LOAD when using large bufferpool

LOAD RESETDICTIONARYONLY and other LOADs take very long, if table resides in large buffer.The limitation also applies to LOAD on row based tables, but bufferpools on BLU systems tend to be much larger.

Add the new IF EXIST functionality to db2look

The new syntax IF EXISTS for CREATE and DROP TABLES (see https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/ideas/DB24LUW-I-259) should also be generated by db2look on demand. This would help and simplify migration scenarios with db2look. This should also be a...

Db2 Templates should support defered tape Mounts

We use a VTL for our Tape Environment. For a VTL it is recommended by IBM to use UNIT=(TAPE,,DEFER) in all Jobs. DB2 uses templates to generate JCL. In this templates it is not possible to code a DEFER parameter. Is there a way to solve this dilemma?

Case TS000932532 - Load should be able to bypass a GENERATED-ALWAYS-from-variable column

ProblemA load on a table containing a certain type of GENERATED ALWAYS column fails with the very odd message "Unexpected load gencol section".Research pointed out that LOAD cannot handle in any way a GENERATED ALWAYS column getting its informatio...

LOAD should allow collecting STATISTICS without USE PROFILE option for row based tables

LOAD collects "default" statistics like auto-runstats when loading into BLU (RUNSTATS ... WITH DISTRIBUTION AND SAMPLED DETAILED INDEXES ALL).I assume this got not changed because the fear of incompatibility with existing behavior. Therefore pleas...

Db2 load ALLOW READ ACCESS support for column organized table

Currently, if a db2 load is happening on a column organized table, users are NOT able to read the data from same table until the load is finished. It's inconvenience for the customer and its users in their daily operation. Thus, the customer wants...

Add flag into db2advis to ignore existing indexes

When troubleshooting performance issues on tables with a high number of indexes, the db2advis tool kind of falls flat. What we have done to get around this is to restore a backup of the database in question, drop all indexes, and then run the db2a...
