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.

Resolve callback thread handing issue on Symphony client 7.1.2

1. Our application MC farms occasionally experience hanging while the farm waits for task responses.
2. The Symphony stats shows all tasks are done, however, the Symphony client API doesn't callback our application. It is likely the Symphony callback mechanism runs into problem
3. We are aware that the Symphony client 7.1.2 / 5.1 only implements one thread for this critical callback mechanism. If the thread is deadlocked / suspended / away, there is no backup thread hence the Symphony client may run into bad state
4. The IBM support engineer, Mr. Jun Zhu, has reproduced the behavior in the IBM lab. Jun also spoke with IBM dev team and dev team proposed an approach to get rid to hanging issue
5. Jun suggested us to log RFE for the enhancement of the Symphony client. Detail see IBM ticket “PMR 36157,L6Q,000”

    There is no specific issue to resolve as this appears to be more of a hypothetical situation.
