Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
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.
QWT: Incorporate the same unit and costs as SQL/PA
We want QWT to incorporate the same unit and costs as SQL/PA (same QUNIT costs and dollar equivalent costs). We use these costs to compare expected performance of a query across the 30 production regions we manage. our management is always looking...
OQWT in DSM for Z/OS Query Advisor Enhancement needed
Query Advisor missing obvious SQL predicate datatype inconsistency
While researching a production issue in all our production systems with a remote DB2 program, we ran OQT in DSM and found that the QUERY ADVISOR was missing a very obvious and key...
We use OQWT advisors regularly for both reactive and more common proactive performance review The DSM tool seems to be working fine, although we really need the query and Access path advisors to work. One of my concerns with the advisors (OQWT (DS...
Create QWT API or script to input SQLs and return recommendations reports file
This product working depends on personal act to access DSM or Data Studio to select type of input, set the filter, execute the job analysis and receive recommendations report, so we'd like do that by external input like a job, script or QWT API.
Since we don't allow our DBA's to do analysis and tuning in our production we would like to be able to run QWT against the production catalog copy that we have in test. The workaround we have is not really comparable but we have a routine that can...
provide procedure to clean up explain tables based on given criteria and build RI to aid that cleanup
each time a bind is run with explain(yes) rows are written to multiple explain tables but there doesn't seem to be a simple way to delete all those rows in all those tables so that only the rows that correspond to the explains of current, previous...
At the university of Jena in Germany we invented a concept called synthetic statistics and implemented a prototype for DB2 for z/OS, which is able to generate DB2 statistics on a synthetic way only based on abstract Performance Indicators (PIs). P...
