Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
Most of our tables that are created before DB2 V8 (and even some created later than that) uses the primary key as the partitioning key. The resulting partitioning key therefore consists of many columns, but the significant columns for partitioning are really just the first one or two columns of the primary key. Today we cannot change which columns are used to define the partitioning without dropping and recreating the tablespace with an outage.
