IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

Allow object analysis to have interval value

We've been told a few times by IBM that by default, we should not start the Object Analysis (OA) function of Omegamon for DB2 at product startup. The main reason being it is too costly - CPU-wise - to run all the time if nobody will look at the data.

The suggestion is then to turn on OA whenever you need it, using OJIN command from classic.

And then it is up to the user to turn it off again whenever the function is no longer required.

That can easily be forgotten, leaving the function turned on when not needed.

Therefor this RFE: provide a way to start OA with an interval value after which it wil be turned off automatically.

This could be an option for the user to select from the ZOJIN panel.

Also, this could be parmgen supported option where one could select the default interval after which OA will be turned off, and still allow users to overwrite from ZOJIN panel.
