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.

Tech Note describes how to use INGEST via ADMIN_CMD:

but using INGEST via ADMIN_CMD is not supported by IBM (see TS000004839 and TS000004925). In addition to support INGEST also INGEST SET commands should be supported via ADMIN_CMD. That would allow INGEST usage using Java.

PMR 41060,140,702 = Case Number TS000004839:
"Developers have confirmed that ingest via admin_cmd is not supported,
DB2_INGEST_VIA_ADMCMD is currently a piece of incomplete code and there are no future plans to complete the support"

    In a heavy workload HADR system the ingest is the only option to replace load.We really need the full support of the ingest command with ADMIN_CMD because we use load via ADMCMD in the store procedure before. and It's easy to get the return code for batach processing.

    We had China customer "SHANGHAI PUDONG DEVELOPMENT BANK " cry for this feature as well , they tested , most features of INGEST via ADMIN_CMD can be used ,but it's not officially support by IBM , they are afriad to use it just in case any potential risk .

    The reason is : they previously use Load , but they started to use HADR now , the would like to use ingest to switch seamless other than modify their application .
