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,
Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
PN_STAGEBLOB_THRESHOLD - Set to 1Mb when first table containing BYTE or TEXT is partitioned by Round Robin
Currently, the PN_STAGEBLOB_THRESHOLD onconfig parameter is not present in the standard onconfig file, therefore it defaults to zero.
It's absence also means that most DBAs will not be aware of its existence and the potential pain they are in for if an initial fragment of a table
, partitioned by ROUND ROBIN and containing BYTE or TEXT datatypes reaches the maximum number of pages for a fragment.
DBAs will usually monitor storage and they would allocate one or more new fragments to this table before it filled completely.
But, when that initial fragment finally does fill, INSERTS and UPDATES to the table will fail with this default setting, even though there is room
in subsequent fragments.
This will lead to a service outage.
The only solution at this point is to unload and delete some data from the initial fragment, set PN_STAGEBLOB_THRESHOLD to something reasonable
with onmode -wf, eg. 1Mb and then reload the data.
