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.
Catalog command with comment string length 30 chars is too short
Catalog command with comment string limit of 30 chars is too short. The examples in the knowledge center document use longer strings.We use the string to contain our FQDN server names and often the limit enforces us to short names.
DBA needs control over Jobs from Automatic Maintenance
We recently had an outage due to automatic maintenance - reorg on a table to reclaim extents. Application A (db2hmon) was running a reorg reclaim on a table and Application B which was already connected to the database and was running a job, as a ...
Allow DB2 to export data from a base table in normal state even if index tablespace is in Rollforward pending state
DB2 should allow exporting data from a base table (tablespace) in normal state even if the index tablespace is in Rollforward pending state (or other abnormal state). This would allow us to rebuilt the table without losing data.DB2 should also alt...

The requests for the enhancement of DB2 LOAD utilities so as to run LOAD utility in a specific partition table during the other query processing like select/update/insert/delete on the other partitions in one partition table.
Skip REORG evaluation if offline maintenance window equal 1 or 2 hours
Reorg table can be run twice during offline maintenance window. This is not acceptable behavior because it can exhaust the window time on the same table. Secondly, it is also possible to put in queue the same REORG TABLE that will be run the next ...
Supress ALLOW WRITE ACCESS REBUILD for ATM if offline window available
As described in PMR (I will upload all material in PMR), the REORG INDEXES ALL FOR TABLE ... ALLOW WRITE ACCESS REBUILD can cause a deadlock with the application. This behavior is not acceptable and we request a change in this design to avoid such...
use of wildcards for table selection with REORG,RUNSTATS etc
Certain utilities that most of the time operate on a (sub)set of tables like REORG and/or Runstats would be much easier to operate if the set of tables to be processed could be selected by means of wildcarding. The wildcarding should be enabled on...
Introduce a new parameter to the export utility to be able to export data from a table that is in a backup image.This functionality is especially useful for data extraction without touching/impacting the source system
Many customers want to REORG their tables quickly and efficiently. The classic REORG is by far the fastest option but puts the table in read only mode. Inplace reorg allows write access but is much slower and not suitable for tables that have a hi...
