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.

Omegamon DB2 to monitor DB2/IRLM in reliable manner

Omegamon DB2 can slow down or even stop reporting IRLM information when IRLM becomes very busy. This is the most important time for Omegamon DB2 to report this information as it's the one tool to help SMEs recover DB2 normal operations. Without this information, SMEs are effectively blind to what is happening within DB2 during times of DB2 stress. Omegamon DB2 uses IRLM requests to get information to display on IRLM activity. Omegamon IMS does not use IRLM requests to get this information (it uses XMS) and does not suffer this problem to my knowledge. Omegamon DB2 should be more reliable. Omegamon DB2 should use the same technique as Omegamon/IMS or a technique that means it is not affected by IRLM activity.
