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.

before DVM termination, wait for seconds which defined in CLIENTQUIESCEDELAY until there are no PSB scheduled with DVM.

DVM v1.1

IMS v13

With above env, we issued


to terminate DVM while PSB is still scheduled.

Then, it caused U3398 error of that application.

We believe that termination command should wait till application will be stopped, or at least wait for a while, but after issued termination command, it caused U3398 error immidiately.

we set CLIENTQUIESCEDELAY as 60 because we expected that DVM will wait 60 seconds before shut-down, but according to DVM L2, CLIENTQUIESCEDELAY is not applicable for IMS.

DVM engineer said that "You will have to write an AHA (Enhancement

Request) so that on the DVM Shutdown it will have DVM check to see that there are no PSBs scheduled before disconnecting from IMS."

We need a design change so that DVM allows currently executing application programs to complete processing, just like the default specification ("MODE(QUIESCE)" option) of -STOP DB2 command of Db2 for z/OS.
