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 offering manager 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.

DB2 listener not activated after DB process killed by OS and restarted automatically by TSA in HADR environment

We had DB2 HADR primary/standby configuration. Due to one application job,DB2 consumes all memory and OS killed db2sysc process. db2 restarted automatically by TSA but listener wasn't activated . There was no evidence in logs which process was using listener process . As there was no other process in server,we suspect it's DB2 process only which wasn't cleared earlier. We have to do manual stop and start which has activated listener again but this has caused 1 hour outage which is really shame for 24x7 critical system.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All the customer who is having HADR solutions in place
How should it work?

Please provide special build which should have additional logging in FODC or db2diag.log in case this issue happens again so that port details will be captured and additional information would be available to find the reason.

Also please check if there is additional checks we can implement before starting db2 again to cleanup all db2 process in memory.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification This has caused business outage so it's top most priority for 24x7 business
