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.
automatic maintenance backup -> more backup options(RIMS)
My customer asked how he can configure the automatic maintenance backup in detail (for example PARALLELISM or BUFFERS). It seems that this is NOT possible at the moment. You can only configure some simple options like the target path for example, but NOT all the things you can normally use for a manually started backup command. As a result his automatic maintenance backup runs much longer than a manually started backup with 'tuned' paprameters. I think this is an interesting improvement. The customer told me that the automatic backup runs about 12-14 hours and his manually started 'tuned' backup command only runs about 5-6 hours. Summarized the automatic backup function is unusable for them.
