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.
support list partitioning - Range-Partitioning allows only to define the upper limit for a partitioned Tablespace.
Full Support for LIST-Partitioning required! With classical Partitioning or UTS Partion-by-Range you can only define the upper limits (key-Ranges) for a partitioned Tablespace. The lower partition-range ist defined by the highest value of the next smaller (lower) partition. To avoid a later merging from different keys in one partition we want to define the partitions with a list. The list-values do not have to be in any order. And gaps should be allowed:
Example 1: Part 1 Value 3 (no Value 1 an 2 allowed) Part 2 Value 5 (no Value 4 allowed) Part 3 Value 7 to 9 (no Value 6 allowed) Part 4 Value 11 (no Value 10 allowed) later: add/insert new Partitions like: Part 5 Value 4 (dynamic and online without impact to old partitions)
Example 2 (similar): Part 1: Value 3 Part 2: Value 5 to 7 Part 3: Value 8 to 9 later: add new Part 4: Value 4 Hence the example 3 shows the full request: add a additional value to an existing Partiton! Example 3 Part 1: Value 3, 9 Part 2: Value 5, 7 Part 3: Value 6, 8 later: add to old Part 3: Value 4
