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 for the parallel restore of multiple different db2 tablespaces when Incremental Backups are present

Refer to Case TS000107666 for more info. Allow for the restore of multiple db2 tablespaces in parallel when Incremental Backups are present. Parallel tablespace restore with incremental backups should accommodate: rebuild db restore (with subset o...

2G limitation in Db2 utility heap size allocation

If the number of buffers and buffer size are not user specified in the BACKUP DB command then Db2 limits the utility heap size allocation to 2G. Please remove this cap to allow for higher default allocation of the utility heap size which in turn s...

New Database Parameter to Open Db2 for LUW Backup Files in Read-Only Mode for Deleting It

Refer to case TS005462380 for more details. Due to the rise in hackers targeting backup data files, our company has implemented Retention Lock on all backup files, including Db2 database backup files and archive log files, by changing the file per...

DB2 should use the HWM value instead of total allocation for restores on AUTO storage dbs

This is general problem for db2 restore with automatic storage environments. The redirected restore requires total space allocated on source DB tablespaces instead of traditional HWM space requirements. This increases the space requirements on the...

Encrypted backup information in DB_HISTORY table

Currently there is no information on backup file is encrypted or not in DB_HISTORY table. Would like to see column indicating db backup entry is of encrypted db and backup file is indeed encrypted.

Can we get timestamp, DBNAME from archive log

Usually our Db2 backs up to storage server or natively. Occasionally we restore a Db2 system in another operating center from where we have to access to the storage server for Restore/rollforward. In the target environment the Db2 archive logs are...

Db2 should request logs in both Log Archive Method

When performing a roll forward, and the LOGARCHMETH1 is configured to a external mechanism like Netbackup, and LOGARCHMETH2 is a local disk, Db2 will ask the first method and wait for the log, even if it takes too long for retrieval. In this case,...

Like DB2_LOAD_COPY_NO_OVERRIDE a registry to overrides NONRECOVERABLE Load operations is required.

Like DB2_LOAD_COPY_NO_OVERRIDE a registry is required which overrides NONRECOVERABLE Load operations to a defined value, because for data center operations any Load operation is critical.DB2_LOAD_NONRECOVERABLE_OVERRIDE=COPY YES USE TSM and DB2_LO...
