IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

FTM SWS node DnqMsifInput, Add a property to control number of entries in Reasonlist to protect resources.

FTM SWS node DnqMsifInput, Add a property to control number of entries in Reasonlist to protect resources.

FTM SWS 342.FP7, Application Programming, DnqMsifInput node.

We have a request for adding a property to the DnqMsifInput node that will control how many errors the node will report.
Errors in this context is number of Reason entries in the ReasonList.

We are using the DnqMsifInput to validate MX messages, and we have seen messages with as many a 634 errors reported.
The DnqMsifInput node spends significant amount of time and resources (cpu, storage) reporting all these errors.
And observed response times between 4 and 23 seconds (clock time).
Which would call for a high number of multiple parallel running instances of the msgflow.

I suggest the addition of a property that allows for configuring the node to skip further checking after detecting the requested number of error(s) as per the property.

We use the DnqMsifInput node to provide a service for our back office systems, letting these having messages validated before the actual sending.
This allows our back office systems to correct messages before sending, when required.

Suggestions for the the property (either will work)

Property name : "Number of errors to report"
Value range : 0 - 99999 , default is 99999

Property name : "Max numbers of entries in the Reasonlist"
Value range : 0 - 99999 , default is 99999

If easier then maybe this less sophisticated alternative
Property name : "Report all errors"
Value range : True False , default True


We are using the DnqMsifInput to validate MX messages, and we have seen messages with as many a 634 errors reported.
This is an extreme case, but we need a method of controlling the time and resources spent on validation messages, even extreme messages.
This property will be the only measure to protect the validation msgflow from extreme messages.


A property to control the amount of resources spent in DnqMsifInput will also reduce the response time , and will be much valued.
The sooner the better.

Provided is a trace from a trace node.
I believe the trace will also show the messages being validated.

Thank you in advance.
