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.

    Thank you very much for submitting this enhancement request.

    We reviewed the attached excel sheet with the SQL statements and performance results. We identified there could be a risk in using WITH UR/being able to read uncommitted data. As we investigate further, could you please help us clarify a few things:

    1. Are all the provided statements in the excel sheet made without WITH UR? If there are any that did include WITH UR, could you please identify which statements those were? We would like to see a comparison of the same statements done with WITH UR added.

    2. What improvement do you want to see by including the WITH UR? Is this for reducing lock contention (currently Admin Tool uses CURRENTLY COMMITTED to reduce lock contention), or is this for saving CPU time?

    Thank you, and we're looking forward to your reply.
