IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

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.

The correct URL for entering your ideas is:

Add ACE info to the OMPE PDB tables and CSV files for individual tran (FILE)

When you use OMPE batch reporting you can do filtering on ACE .

However the ACE info is not stored in the FILE output, so it cannot be loaded into the PDB tables and CSV files.

As an ACE can only run one tran at a time, having the ACE can help to understand if a tran ran on the same thread as another one or not. Having this info will also allow to determine the number of concurrent threads at any one point in time, something that I am unable to determine otherwise (as the LUWID or any other identifier will not allow you to tell if two tran ran one after another (on the same thread) or in parallel (using different threads (ACEs).

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Everybody doing Db2 performance analysis usuing accounting information
How should it work?

The ACE is in the Db2 standard header DSNDQWHS , field QWHSACE, so it is present in every trace record.

As you can filter on it for certain OMPE reports it must be collected and stored in the 'internal structures' that OMPE uses. It is stored in the DPMOUT DD . I verified that .

So I hope it is is easy to add to the ACCOUNTING FILE output (so the performance database tables and CSV files can pick up this info as well)
