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.

Db2 Automation Tool for z/OS

Showing 34

Delete profiles using a batch job instead of doing it thru the panels

ADP has approx 40 environments. So to cleanup profiles that aren't being used is a very labor instensive .

HAA - HAA$UMOD - Modify Statistics should have it's own AGE. Currently it uses the MODIFY RECOVERY AGE.

The MODIFY STATISTICS needs to be retained longer than the MODIFY RECOVERY. Would have to do 2 Utility Actions to accomplish this.

HAA - PBR containing XML generated REORG that abended because XML running at the same time as an index in the base table containing the XML column in two separate jobs

Base table has index: Name Schema T DB Name TS Name Cols Rows Chks * * * * * * * * ------------------ -------- - -------- -------- ------ ----------- ---- MASTER_TRANS_MTR ZAP2 T DZAP2QR1 SQR1MTR 17 10 0 XQR14MTR Column Name Seq No O Col Type Leng...

HAA - RUNSTATS grouping all NPSI partitions into one job instead of spreading the objects across multiple jobs

Running RUNSTATS on TS with NPSIs. All partitions were put into the same job instead of being spread across the 20 jobs. This is true for Reorg, but not RUNSTATS.

HAA did not pick up the need for NPSIs to be reorged when TS was being reorged

SEMHNSA TS partition 278 having 2 NPSIs was triggered for REORG. HAA is run 6 times on Saturday and 4 times on Sunday since this TS is so large, 7 billion rows in some environments. REXX code rebuilds the RGNSA001 so that only 100M rows are reorge...

Provide Reallocate option to set PRIQTY/SECQTY to -1

We are looking to simplify our DB2 dataset management by allowing DB2 to choose the correct sizes (PRIQTY and SECQTY to -1). However, there is not an option where you can put a specific allocation, or set an option to let DB2 pick the size (-1).

Need enhancement in product to be able to have entry fields to be able to specify for NPSI objects CARDF limit to select partitions, such as only reorg up to 100M rows using RTS LASTREORGTIME

Had to develop REXX code to prune the 7B row NPSI TS to 100M row per execution. Product should handle this.

Enhance Tooll to be able add the Unload Utility and HPU

Have a process to unload test data and load it to another environment. Currently each database has 1 job where the elapsed time is very long. It would be great to have the tool load balance this over multiple jobs.

HAA$JOPT support REXX for USER Exit Names

Reorging of TS with NPSI in the maintenance window causes increase elapsed time and shortage of DASD. Need the capability in HAA eliminate partitions over a certain row amount. We use 100M. Using this the reorgs do not abend. Each week the next se...

Enhance Autonomics Console Execution History Panel

The Autonomics Console Execution History Panel (HAA$ADEH) currently does not display the name of the maintenance window that is associated with an Automation Tool Build execution or an Autonomics Director execution. Currently, you have to manually...
