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.

Backup on RSS - option to allow with raw tables.


The new 14.10.FC6 feature to be able to run backups on an RSS node would be useful to reduce load on the Primary.

We would like an onconfig parameter to allow backups on the RSS even when there are raw tables.

We would expect the raw tables to have inconsistent data if we failed over to the RSS node and a restore would be no different.

E.g. If data in raw tables is temporary and only used by jobs which drop and recreate the raw tables when they start anyway.

    I think this is not possible as RAW Tables are not logged so, no "traveling" to HDR Secondary or RSS
