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.
current IMS log reader TAPE contention behavior needs to be improved during change stream activation
Please refer to the PMR 02209,69G,760 and APAR PI71320 submitter page. --- start of the APAR quotation --- The current IMS log reader VTS contention behavior needs to be improved. Contention occurs when the IMS log reader attempts to access an archive log on virtual or real tape that is currently being accessed by another address space. During change stream activation if this kind of contention is detected the stream is deactivated resulting in replication stopping in error for the subscription(s) that caused the stream to be activated in the first place. During normal log reading operations when VTS contention is detected the software attempts to re-allocate the file ten times before reporting the stream in error. This retry process typically takes less than one minute to complete which is not long enough. --- end of the APAR quotation ---
