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.
UOW size for mass delete on table with data capture
requesting that DB2 generate reasonably sized URs when performing a mass delete action against a table with DATA CAPTURE set to CHANGES. in a specific case, we were rotating partitions on a base source table which was being replicated with data capture - but when the Alter table occurs to rotate the partition, the purging of the data is propagated via db2 logs as deletes to the target through CDC. when rotating partitions, you would expect to be able to purge that data without replicating it to target table - however, in our case, it pushed through the entire contents of the partition as a single delete statement to CDC which overloaded it's staging space and brought down our LPAR as it exhausted aux storage because the single UOW was too large to process. need to be able to control the size of the uow as you are replicating deletes from an alter statement that is rotating partitions.
