  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.

Enhance CDC v11.4 source engine to support oracle ASM redundancy with failure group

In China some customer is using Oracle ASM redundancy solution with failure group which support 2 storage systems located at both machine rooms as storage redundancy and Disaster backup under oracle control. If one of machine room  happens power down or storage fails, oracle can still work well and no impact for production environment.
The customer uses CDC v11.4 as kernel DR tool to replicate multiple oracle RAC environments and zDB2/UDB  as CDC source engines to their data warehouse/bigdata systems and other application DBs for supporting their core data system.
But the customer has got confirmed from CDC lab through CASE TS002495377 that CDC doesn’t support ASM redundancy ( failure group)  right now, CDC will only look at the primary copy of the ASM managed logs.
The customer thinks this result is reducing the whole system high availability and reliability.
They also heard from oracle support team that this kind of design for ORACLE RAC with redundancy storage is quite often used by the banks in China.
So the customer request IBM local support term to raise this RFE to enhance CDC to support Oracle ASM redundancy failure group design ASAP.
