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.

db2pd -inst attemps to collect PureScale information in a non-PureScale environment

db2pd -inst attempts to collect -quiesceinfo and -iperiodic even though they are not appropriate options for the non-PureScale environment. It seems like db2pd should be smart enough to collect the information appropriate for the operating environment. Currently the db2diag.log has messages about the failed attempt to execute the -quiesceinfo option.

The output of the db2pd -inst command starts with the following lines:

This command is only supported in multiple member environments.

-quiesceinfo option is only available in Shared Data (SD) configurations.

-iperiodic option is only available in Shared Data (SD) configuration.

Note: Shared Data (SD) actually means DB2 PureScale. I wish the message would just say PureScale

    I agree, db2pd should do a better job identifying the system is not pureScale and execute accordingly.
