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.

Add few more columns in Db2 Performance database

When we investigate performance issue, performance database is an useful source, because we can run SQL query against the tables to pull out data. But if few more columns could be added to the tables, it would greatly improve the productivity:

  1. in DB2PMFACCT_GENERAL, there are





but DB2PMSACCT_GENERAL does not have these equivalent columns, we wish the future release could add these.


currently we have to sum up this by ourselves. (ref case: TS006883139)

3. When we investigate a performance issue, often we want to have an overview of the bufferpool activities such as BP_GETPAGES and BP_UPDATES. Currently we have to join DB2PMFACCT_GENERAL with FACCT_BUFFER, or DB2PMSACCT_GENERAL with SACCT_BUFFER. It's cumbersome. We wish a TOTAL BPOOL ACTIVITY column to be added in DB2PMFACCT_GENERAL and DB2PMSACCT_GENERAL.
