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.
Improve handling of tables with structure changes in Log Analyzer Tool
The current handling of tables that have had structure changes (alters, drop/recreate) is extremely cumbersome and difficult to pro-actively manage, requiring TVFILE entries for altered tables and duplicate structures for tables that have been dropped/recreated. While the “Track Schema Changes” process can populate the TVFILE entries there is no effective way to proactively determine when that process is needed, and no good way to determine how long the TVFILE entries should remain as well as no good way to share TVFILE entries between scan processes since each scan can also update the TVFILE. There are a few options for automating the drop/recreate process, but none of them are easy to incorporate into a jobflow with other table scans.
