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.

Enabling symbloc link of PA conf directory to shared directory

1. The JVM version we are currently using in PA does not work well with s-link

2. With current PA design, PA data collection node does request a CONF directory on local FileSystem, there are some parameters are applied to local binaries, however, for for the point #1 above, we can't set it up as a s-link points to the shared CONF directory

3. This issue does not only occurs on PA, all the other Java-based EGO services would have the same limitation as well.

4. PA does not expect user modify parameters set in local CONF, all the config change need to be made on shared CONF

5. There's no EGO document states the local CONF can be set as a s-link or removed, although it is widely applied in Platform Symphony world (That just because most services are NOT Java based).
