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.

Manually confirm whether to switch before TSAMP+HADR automatically switches

In the TSAMP+hadr environment, in the event of a failure, TSAMP will directly switch the active/standby relationship. Sometimes, it may solve the A machine failure recovery time, especially the AB machine transmits a large transaction log.

Therefore, we hope to switch after manually confirming the database status before the TSAMP switch.

    Based on the description, the request is to have manual intervention in an automated HADR setup. Effectively, this changes the setup to manual HADR. If human intervention is required, the setup should remain as manual. If notification is required for DBA, there is currently no plan to implement such auto-feedback within Db2. The suggestion is to script the detection of failure to send out email.
