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.

If we use the CURRENT EXPLAIN MODE special register more widely, we have to create either a PLAN_TABLE and a DSN_STATEMENT_CACHE_TABLE or an ALIAS for each user. If we forget it, it doesn't work. So if there would be a default table for both, all ...

Delay the insert into PLAN_TABLE, if EXPLAIN MODE is YES

We want to use SET CURRENT EXPLAIN MODE = YES in long running jobs like DSNTIAUL or DSNTEP2 to get more information, what was going on. If these jobs only ran select-statements a long running UOR is generated, because the insert of the access path...

Add timestamp on sysmater to know when an open transaction has been created

Add a creation timestamp for each transaction so users can monitor how long a transaction has been open. Maybe like in others sysmaster tables, a column on systrans will be great.

Identify a more representative selectivity for common predicates

Our queries have predicates that many queries share in common where the default selectivity is significantly outside the range of what ever actually occurs. This results in poor and/or unstable query performance. For common predicates with high un...

'onstat -g mem' should give a complete picture of all memory usage by an Informix instance
