ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE not detected by IIDR QREP or CDC

If 'ALTER table DATA CAPTURE NONE' is executed against a table that is actively replicating, any changes made to the source data will not be captured or replicated until ‘ALTER table DATA CAPTURE CHANGES' is executed. This would cause the target...

Q Replication to Kafka Targets

Kafka evolves as a platform for real time data streaming, analytics, and event processing. For enterprise customers the challenge is to let data originating on IBM z flow to Kafka. Popular options are Kafka APIs, MQ, data replication. Only data re...

Automate restart of IIDR tasks when RRS terminates

We had issues with RRS recently which were solved via a maintenance cycle. During those issues, our IIDR Capture and Apply tasks failed and required manual restart. We have the option TERM=N enabled yet the Capture/Apply tasks were not restarted w...

Fully replication support of Db2 data type XML with IDR Queue Replication especially for the case the Queue message size is limited because of using Shared Queues based on Coupling Facility structures

We replicate a lot of changes of our operational zDb2 data to a Db2 LUW (BLU) via IDR Queue Replication. The Db2 BLU is used as the data base of our datawarehouse processes. The Queue Replication uses Shared Queues which are mapped on Coupling Fac...

Add ability to have multiple Q-replication targets on Db2wh

Currently on Db2wh, there is no ability to add multiple targets for Q-Replication. Please consider adding that idea as we have business case to implement such solution

ASNCLP should support LARGE tablespaces and AUTOMATIC storage options for Db2

With Db2 11.5 SQL Replication, USING PROMOTE REGISTRATION in ASNCLP to generate a script to run later, the tablespace definitions are created incorrectly for existing tablespaces defined as LARGE and using AUTOMATIC storage. LARGE tablespaces a...

Requesting Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal to Temporal Table

This RFE/Idea is to request Q-Replication capability from Non-Temporal source to Temporal Table target. The existing Q-Replication only supports from Temporal to Temporal tables. For reporting within FTM (Financial Transaction Manager), there is a...

Request for re-try / reconnect mechanism

We'd like to request Replication to have re-try / reconnect mechanism even without MQ multiple instances. Because currently it doesn’t support MQ multiple instances, we can use SLB, but if it has no re-connect, we can do nothing.

The Q-Replication apply programm shall be able to call the Db2 High Performance Unload (HPU) utility by the HPU stored procedure

Hello, in enterprise warehouse and OLTP areas of DB2 installations exist often very big databases with several tera bytes (often 100 of TBs) of data. For example we have several OLTP databases with more than 20TB and tables with billion of recor...
