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.

DB2 V10 Object rename improvement

Slow object renames in DB2 V10. Need to add index to the SYSTABAUTH table.
Changed function from V9 to V10 - Removed links

Info from PMR 19771:

These 'internal queries' don't go through normal access path selection.
They have a 'hard coded' access path.
Prior to V10 these lookups exploited the links inside the DB2 catalog.
With the links gone in V10, they use regular, but hard coded, access
paths. This one is a case where we could benefit from an additional
index (and code changes to exploit it), which I think is something that
we are considering for a future version/release.
