Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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 a WHERE clause for ADMIN_MOVE_TABLE to delete data while moving a table
One of the most painful things to do is to delete a huge amount of data. One workaround for this is to export the data needed and then LOAD/REPLACE back into the same table, but this requires an outage of the table to accomplish. If a WHERE clause...

Turn on reclaimable storage without dropping/recreating the tablespaces
After a migration from db2 9.5 to 10.1, several days passed, and we reached the maximum size of a DMS tablespace of 4K. We moved one table to a different tablespace, but still noticed that the free pages were equal to 0. We tried to execute the al...
For databases using AUTO_DEL_REC_OBJ, at the end of the BACKUP utility there is a synchronous process which purges any history records and their associated archive logs. This can take a very long time on busy systems. It is necessary to decouple t...
Many customers want to REORG their tables quickly and efficiently. The classic REORG is by far the fastest option but puts the table in read only mode. Inplace reorg allows write access but is much slower and not suitable for tables that have a hi...
Column-organized tables are currently not supported for table partitioning (e.g. PARTITION BY RANGE)..At the same time, table partitioning is used by many data warehouse customers to speed up ETL activities - e.g.:(a) load new data into a separate...
Currently on Db2 LUW CREATE OR REPLACE is only allowed for the owner of a database object. CREATE OR REPLACE authorization should be opened up to allow create/replace by anyone who has the ability to drop the object and to create the object with a...
