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.
We have IBM InfoSphere Platform and thousands of DataStage Jobs. Lot of these jobs use Oracle and ODBC connector Stage to connect to Oracle DBaaS database. These stages are running queries against system tables frequently and causing performance degradation on the database server. Multiple DBAs in our organization has pointed this out. IBM Case # TS003621139. AWR report on the database confirmed this situation.
The problem seems to be that the stage runs the same query from each of the parallel threads (each compute node). Currently there is no workaround and we are forced to increase the number of CPUs/cores on the database server. We have couple of critical projects going live in next month or so and it's important for us to make sure there's no performance issue. So any solution that you can provide will greatly help us.
