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.

Informix HQ Enhancement

When using out of the box sensors, or creating your own custom sensor, it would be helpful to have the ability to specify a time of day to run the sensor.

A real world example.

Our software give customers the ability to create their own queries. We have a customer whose system sometimes becomes sluggish and/or unresponsive every morning sometime between 6am and 7:30 am. We have verified it is not a schedule task. Since this doesn't happen at exactly the same time. Experience tells us that this may be due to an employee running a custom query. We would like to turn on SQL tracing, and have a custom sensor to query the data returned from the trace. I realize I can set the sensor to run at an interval, but being more granular with that interval would be helpful.

In the example above, I would like to run the sensor at 1 minute intervals, but don't want to run it for 24 hours at 1 minute intervals.

Thanks for the consideration, and this really cool forum to present ideas.
