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.
Compression of Primary Key Indexes with Version 10.1 FP 5
While doing some testing with, we noticed that when you create a table compressed, that ALL indexes automatically get compressed. We found out that we have the ability to specify "normal" indexes without compression, but you can not have an uncompressed Primary Key. We noticed some degradation on loading the table with indexes and Primary Keys compressed.
As a work around, we dropped and recreated all indexes without compression, then created a Unique Index and tied it to a primary key constraint.
We were wondering if IBM would consider an enhancement of allowing primary key uncompressed.
