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 command to move data from a chunk to remove it

Add a command , at onspaces or sql task() , to force free a chunk, moving the data to another chunks with available space at same dbspace.
With that will allow to exclude the cleared chunk from the dbspace.

    For developers when reviewing this case: Another implementation to move data to another chunk can be to shrink table data and support to inform a list of chunks in which to avoid repositioning data.

    So you can add new chunk and executing shrink command passing current chunk id as "avoid chunk" list. Maybe this is easier to implement than creating a new command from scratch.
