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.

capturing comparison information from mpxcomp

The output of mpxcomp after running mpxdump has memrecno1, memrecno2, and the score.

We then do MemCompare using memrecno1 memrecno2 using the Java SDK in a multi threaded fashion to see the comparison information breakdown on how it generated the score.

The problem for us is that using the SDK to get the comparison information is slow. We know mpxcomp already has the comparison available when it's calculating the score. We also know from the debug log that mpxcomp can spit out the comparison information.

We're wondering if it's possible to have the comparison information between the two memrecno's available from mpxcomp somehow.

Perhaps a parameter that outputs the comparison information to stdout when an argument is set would be one option.
