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.
We use a VTL for our Tape Environment. For a VTL it is recommended by IBM to use UNIT=(TAPE,,DEFER) in all Jobs. DB2 uses templates to generate JCL. In this templates it is not possible to code a DEFER parameter. Is there a way to solve this dilemma?
Improved Db2 backup thread (db2bm and db2med) binding/distribution on NUMA systems
On a large NUMA systems with a very fast storage and a fast backup target memory affinity might affect backup time as well as the overall system performance during the activity. Currently, with the Db2's automatic thread NUMA binding (DB2_RESOURCE...
Automate SSL certificate refreshing after CP4D self-signed certificates are renewed (Db2, DV)
I think the SSL certificate refreshes for Db2 and Data Virtualization described below are about internal CP4D communication.
Enable db2 to use SVCENAME only as a resync port, not allowing connections to this port
We expect that credentials are properly secured on the network. Db2 LUW will allow part of these credentials to be not properly secured in certain situations. Due to this, we need to convert all of our connections to be SSL connections. But in the...
Goal: create RSP (response) file to install Db2 LUW on multiple systems, but allow for customization of the password for the instance owner without having to go through the GUI installer for each, and avoid displaying the password in plain text in...
Application Object Space Limit Monitoring - Batch Alerting
We currently have an in-house written tool (in Rexx) that batch reports daily on any of our application objects across our Db2 Z/OS production estate that might be approaching theoretical dataset size / partition limits; so that we can pro-activel...
More and more SQL is stored in repositories and needs to be applied in odd places and orders. One syntax element that supports this is the "IF EXISTS" on a drop statement. This causes a statement to not count as a failure if it finds no object to ...
Add ability to detect changes in data (similar to QSYS2.DISPLAY_JOURNAL)
When supporting a production environment, one needs to detect the sequence of updates, including before and after image. On IBMi, we use extensively the functionality to consult the journal entries (https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/qsys2displayjo...
ISO/IEC 9075:2016-2, T612: Add ability to declare window frame that can be shared between window functions
When you need to use the same window frame for several window functions, T612 can simplify the query. Example from code of advent, day 1: select id, case when count(1) over w = 3 then sum(depth) over w end depth from day1.input window w as (order ...
NONBLOCKED option for event monitors to prevent them from blocking user services
Db2 locking event monitor may block deadlocked applications from proceeding for a purpose of making event monitors work under some circumstances. (Reported on case TS007885986) Since it could damage user's business services severely, user should b...
