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.
Currently, automatic reorgs can only be performed offline. The additional functionality we are looking for would be the ability to perform automatic in-place/online reorgs. The benefit of that is users still have full table access during the process. Online reorgs are much more flexible: they can be stopped/started and allow full table access.
We have developed a custom process instead of DB2’s auto reorg process. Our workaround involves custom scripts to run online reorgs and runstats during a maintenance window. Long-term we don’t want to rely on having to maintain custom processes such as this and looking IBM to provide this natively within DB2.
