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.

Alllow processing of QM performance data to be deferred


All of the data collected during a performance window is processed by the QM agent task immediately after the performance window ends.  However, typically performance windows are defined to collect data during time periods of high activity, so as to capture relevant data.  But because the processing and analysis of performance data is a very CPU intensive process, it would be highly desirable to not process this data at this time.  There needs to be a mechanism to specify that the processing and analysis of performance data is to be deferred until a time of lower activity, when more CPU is available to perform this function.

Use Case
Performance windows are typically defined to be during periods of high user activity in order to capture relevant data.  However, because this data is processed when the window closes, there is an immediate impact on the CPU to process this data.  The CPU should not be impacted to process this data during periods of high user activity.

    This was delivered via PH03212 in Feb 2019, but doesn't negate the work on performance improvements planned for delivery in 2H2020.
