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.

Order Execution of Autonomic Actions by Object Size RFE 122603


All Autonomics actions with the same priority value to be executed by the Autonomics Director for DB2 need to be executed in ascending order of object size. (This is similar in concept to the way the DB2 COPY utility works when processing a list of objects so that the processing of smaller objects does not get delayed/stuck waiting behind the processing of large objects).

Use CaseWhen executing hundreds of actions against as many objects of greatly varying sizes, because multiple WLMU tasks are all executing in parallel, if the WLMU tasks start off processing all of the large objects, then all WLMU address spaces are unavailable to process any of the much smaller objects.
