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.
Classic CDC for IMS - Enhanced Z/OS monitoring ability
When conducting CDC for IMS Publishing to MQ we are able to start an online trace in the Classic Data Architecht tool which provides ud with multiple information among others the ability to see if the CDC for IMS Capture task is keeping up pace with the IMS logs currently being written. This enables us to identify gaps and determine if a backlog is being built up. We need this and other monitor information in order to set up proper surveilance of the CDC for IMS task running on Z/OS and we need the information to be delivered directly on Z/OS so we can use it for setting up alerts to the Z/OS surveilance system. It is not acceptable to deploy the replication product in production and built business critical logic on the replicated data if we can't monitor when gaps/backlogs etc.occur and raise alerts and act in due time before major incidents are present.So please develop a routine/service or Command which can be used on Z/OS for fetching the same information as is currently sent to the Classic Data Architecht.
