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.

ADMIN_TAB_INFO is sloooow and this has been the case for quite sometiome.

Extremely slow when used in a RP environment. Also used by check_upgrade which takes 7+ hours to run. Environment has 2million+ objects, 1 range per day for 3 years. Check_upgrade may be calling check for load pending which used admin_tab_info

RP Tables syntax

If the “INDEX IN” option is left off the index goes in the default TSP. There is no way to change this later

XMLPATH use of global index and s/b local RP index

Migration from SMS/Raw to AS

How to move the thousands DBs which use a combination of SMS (syscatspace) and RAW to full automatic storage. Some DBs are 100+TB so unload/load is not an option. Need a date for elimination of SMS/RAW support to determine our priotiy!

HA for DB2/DPF using disk replication

Many challenges with node recovery. Current BP is to reboot all nodes in the cluster if any one fails. Many cases where db2 agent hangs on restart and requires a node reboot. Would prefer to see disk replication used for HA
