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.

Data sharing in three-way sysplex environment


Our customer is using WAS for z/OS and DB2 for z/OS on their mission critical system.

According to APAR PI33379, an accounting record is not being created for every SRRCMIT with read-only COMMIT even if RRSAF ACCOUNTING INTERVAL is set to COMMIT and it is a permanent restriction.

However, this restriction causes serious problems to analyze the detail performance of read-only transactions on their system and the customer think that it has a significant impact for their system operations.




Db2 should create accounting records at RRSAF's read-only commit as the same as CICS,IMS and DRDA threads when the RRSAF ACCOUNTING INTERVAL is set to COMMIT.


Customers have the benefit of being able to more easily identify the cause of transaction performance issues.
