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,

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.
For very large (over 10GB) .cub and .feeder files, the time to load, save or process them could be substantially reduced were they partitioned and processed in parallel. For servers with 40 cores, the time savings can be significant.
The obvious use case is to partition by the Time dimension since historical time series data is generally static with only the current and future time periods changing.
During server startup, multiple partitions would be loaded in parallel, respecting the MTQ setting, for both cubes and feeders, even conditional feeders.
During a SAVEDATAALL, only the cube and feeder partitions that had changed would be saved and those would also be saved in parallel respecting the MTQ setting.
During a CubeProcessFeeders operation, the user would have the ability to specify the partitions to generate, or take the default option of ALL.
The benefits to customers is (1) increased application availability, (2) decreased load on network bandwidth during load/save/process feeder operations, and (3) opportunity to adjust the data backup/restore strategy to backup and recover only those partitions of interest.
