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.

Workspace Db2

Db2 should request logs in both Log Archive Method

When performing a roll forward, and the LOGARCHMETH1 is configured to a external mechanism like Netbackup, and LOGARCHMETH2 is a local disk, Db2 will ask the first method and wait for the log, even if it takes too long for retrieval.

In this case, Db2 should ask in both methods (1 and 2), and when obtained from one of the methods, the request should be canceled in the other method.

In the described scenario, logs are local in disk written by the LOGARCHMETH2, but Db2 only asks and wait for logs using the LOGARCHMETH1.

    Instead of requesting to both methods simultaneouly all the time, and cancel the request later, wouldn't it be better to detect which method uses local storage "DISK:..." and choose this one as the preferred method ,?

    But, if both methods are remote storage , like "TSM:..." or VENDOR , then request from both at same time, as we dont know which is faster.
