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.

[Workload Monitoring and Management] SOAM - SSM - SSM inhibit feature

provide a tool and/or api to inhibit a specific SSM. The SSM behavior would be similar to BEV_CRITICAL behavior. When a SSM is inhibited, it refuses to accept new connections, to create new sessions, or to accept new tasks for running sessions. In flight sessions and tasks are allowed to run to completion. when a SSM is inhibited, new connection requests result in creation of another SSM process for the same application. the new SSM process should start on a different host. If a client that is already connected to an SSM tries to create a new session, it should get an exception. it can then attempt to get a new connection which would go to a new SSM process. When an inhibited SSM has no more open sessions, the process should exit.
Feature should also include option to inhibit all SSMs on a host. In that case, inhibit behavior per-process would be as above, and also no new SSM processes can start on the host while it is inhibited.
