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.

Components Q Replication for Z

Ability to create ASNMON Oracle Control Tables via GUI without Federated Server

We have QREP Data Replication established between DB2 Z/OS and Oracle on Linux. We are using Oracle Native Apply on the target DBMS.

As per discussions and conclusions in the referenced PMR, 85301,442,000, we have 2 issues:
1) We can not directly create the required ASNMON Monitor Control Tables for Oracle from the GUI interface and
2) We can not establish end-to-end monitoring with Oracle unless we establish a Federated Server setup.

We do not want to establish a Federated Server as this inserts additional overhead and complexities that we do not feel is warranted.

    IBM update

    Thanks for filing this requirement. We think that the requirement is valid, but the work is not prioritized at this time. IBM will keep the IDEA on our radar during future planning.

    It would an extremely helpful to be able to monitor end-to-end replication. Honestly surprised IBM doesn't provide this capability already.
