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.

Extend the Value of Omegamon Near-Term History

The Performance Database tables holds history information about Db2 activity, and the sequential output dataset created by NTH can be used as the input to create LOAD files with data to populate most of the tables, but not all. 

The problem is that is not possible to choose extra traces (IFCIDs) that we want to send to NTH. During NTH customization it is possible to choose which options we want to turn on or off, and this will result in a fixed list of IFCIDs being collected or not. 

The following 2 Statistics tables are part of the Performance Database and are based on IFCIDs that are not collected by any NTH option: 

- Aggregated Accounting Data table (DB2PM_STAT_AGGRACC) which is based on IFCID 369 (Statistics trace class 9)

- Storage Data table (DB2PM_STAT_STORAGE) which is based on IFCID 225 (Statistics trace class 6)

NTH sequential output file can't be used as a single point for collecting data to load the Performance Database.
