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.

Monitor IDAA for z/OS physical filesystem in size in real time

There are different UIs such as Data Studio, DSM and and Admin UI and they provide different metrics for storage usage in IDAA on Z. Such as;
- Table size in data studio determined at the table level,
- Used Space in data studio which comes from Used pages at the tablespace level
- Physical Storage size determined from OS by Admin UI

Wells Fargo and other customers want to monitor IDAA for z/OS physical filesystem in size in real time. We provide file system information thru Admin UI only in HMC. And the only interactive/real time z/OS based command that we have is -DIS ACCEL DETAIL and it provides the following only

Q8STDSKA Total Disk capacity in MB available on the Accelerator database. Q8STDSKB Disk space (in MB) used by the Accelerator database for this DB2 system.
Q8STDSA Disk Space (in MB) available on the Accelerator database for all DB2 systems.

Those metrics are Db2wh metrics and not physical filesystem metrics
