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.

Ability to execute more than one ALTER TABLESPACE statement at a time on Statement Execution Prompt screen

If we want to alter a series of tablespaces in a database, for example to move them to another bufferpool, change the Close Rule, compress them, or set them to LOGGED/NOT LOGGED, in Db2 Administration Tool we have to set up and execute the ALTER TABLESPACE statement for each tablespace to be altered, going through panels ADB21 (to choose the database), ADB21D (choosing command S) ADB21S (choosing command AL), ADB21SA (choosing what to alter), arriving at ADB2PSTM to execute the alter for each tablespace. That is a repetitive set of actions for each tablespace.

Even if we use WSL, we have to add one ALTER TABLESPACE statement to a WSL, edit the WSL to include the other tablespaces we want to alter and run the WSL in batch.

For using WSL. we calculate that to be hitting around 10 screens from panel ADB21 inclusive, followed by issuing the SUBMIT on the generated WSL job.

Our workaround is to set up and issue the ALTER TABLESPACE statements through SPUFI, where we can type in one alter statement, repeat it as many times as necessary, alter the tablespace names accordingly, add a semi-colon after each statement and run them.
