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.

Add "WITH UR" To DSM queries


We've been using DSM in our environment to monitor databases. We've had couple of issues in our PROD environment with DSM creating locks on the databases and causing our runstats job to fail with locktimeout or deadlock issues. There have some scenarios where DSM query has been running for more than 5 mins.

We've opened a PMR with IBM on this issue TS000949341. IBM has provided a fix for us to run DSM queries WITH UR for storage savings, track changes and table invalid. I would like to provide an suggestion to provide an option in the tool to turn ON "WITH UR" clause for all the DSM queries so that we eliminate the locking issues on the database.

As you know we use the tool to identity potential issues and to administer database real-time. But it would be a hassle and hard to justify to our management if the tool itself is the root cause for some of these issues on our environment especially in PROD!

Please consider the suggestion to add WITH UR and try to incorporate it in the next release. Thanks.

    Hello, this functionality was delivered in DSM via several fixpack releases. We recommend that DSM customers move to the latest fixpack to pick up this change.

    This enhancement is also included in the Db2 Data Management Console. You can learn more about the new console here:
