IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

db2adutl performance

When we are deleting logs in TSM every week, we encounter very poor

performance for deleting > 1000 logs for each DB2 partition. There

are 131 DB2 partitions. Deleting the same amount of logs with dsmc del .

. . . . works much faster. We assume db2adutl deletes log by log

sequentially per DB2 partition. The command is "delete logs older than

<logfile> db <db> dbpartitionnum X without prompting" We

call db2adutl with db2_all per single DB2 partition in configurable

chunks (8 - 16 DB2 partitions in parallel)"

Wanted to know if db2adutl can be multi threaded and can do this operation in parallel?
