Post an idea
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.

ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN diagnostic log record needs more information to be useful

We are using IMS v11.5 and Db2 v9.1 for z/os with coexistence option. We want to receive a message in syslog saying the cthread threshold was reached or an SQL Code/State returned to application for error handling to prevent queuing on IMS side.
