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.

Enhance control over objected selected for reorg when using smarter reorg recommendations


When using the REORG_OVERRIDE condition in combination with other base reorg criteria in an exception profile, any object that meets the user-defined base reorg criteria, but whose baseline or comparison window contains insufficient data for QM to make a recommendation, is accepted as an object to be reorged.   The suggested enhancement is to provide an optional switch to control whether or not objects for which QM has insufficient data to be analyzed are actually reorged.

For example, a value of Y (the proposed default) would match the current behavior and indicate that any object that meets the base reorg criteria, but for which QM does not have sufficient data, should still be reorged.  A value of ‘N' would indicate that only those objects that meet the base reorg criteria, AND for which QM returns a ‘recommended' recommendation are actually reorged.  Objects with insufficient data for QM to make a recommendation should be bypassed.

Use Case
The DBA can use this switch to control how objects for which QM does not have sufficient data to make a proper reorg analysis should be handled.
