Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  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.

Platform management UI health check enhancements

Situation: Currently there is no single holistic UI/command to validate the overall health of CPD and installed cartridges' /modules.

Pain Point: some functionality or dependencies could be missing and users, application support would not know and have to go through their operations and IBM support to validate and fix. usually users will report either functionality is missing or performance issues

Workarounds: check each components and its dependencies by itself, go back and forth with support to find out how to check. e.g. speech to text, text to speech, Watson, storage system, operators, ..etc and draw conclusions or ask IBM support for help

  • run commands to check overall pod/service availability

$ oc get pods -o wide | grep -Ev '1/1|2/2|3/3|4/4|5/5|6/6|7/7|8/8' | grep -v 'Completed'

$ oc get wa

The benefits would be reduced ticket to IBM support (less going back and forth) and better visibility to the overall CPD health and reduced time to investigate and troubleshoot if there are any issues. proactive handling of issues.

Not to mention give more confidence to new customers on the overall stability and reliability of the system

example : from the command line I can "oc get wa" and it will show me if redis is ready or having issues, I can not have that visibility now from UI, and it affects other components that did affect the user

    I have checked the two screen shots attached, they do help hopefully, when it comes to containers or pods are down, however, not sure if they will cover when a service is down, not functioning well, are you covering this too? like redis pods having issues but pods are up and running. I would say lets connect after we upgrade to 4.x

    Hi - Thank you for the issue. There are a couple of health checks already in place. Can we have a call to go over the details and provide a document that explains the enhancements so that it becomes easier to implement where the gaps are.
