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.
Metrics for this product shoul be provided as regular SMF collection for historical and monitor reasons

Limit maximum number of writer tasks that can be assigned per subscription
We had an incident where one subscription had monopolized most of the writer tasks which caused replication latency for the RMs of all the other subscriptions in that source/target server pair. Therefore, there should be a parm to set a limit for ...
High availability for IMS CDC in a SYSPLEX environment
We are currently implementing CDC for IMS in our Production environment.
This consists of 2 IMS v15.2 systems running on 2 different LPAR's, in a SYSPLEX.
The OS on both are currently z/OS 2.3.
CDC for IMS runs on 1 LPAR, replicating the LOGS o...

Suppress DD-level accounting information in the SMF type 30 EXCP section for individual DDs.
We found that E-Private SP230 Key0 storage growth was occurred in IIDR Classc Capture service.
It was due to SMF type 30 EXCP information at DD name dynamic allocation.
Our case was 100 thousand DD Dynamic allocation for IMS OLDS open.
It would be very helpful to have the possibility to code some generic names in the Classic Change Data Capture for IMS z/OS in the parameter field SSIDEXCLUDELIST.
In some cases, customers need to code several hundred or thousands of names which ...
