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.

Provide actual threshold data for an object with "No Baseline Window" or "No Comparison Window" statuses

It has been my experience that by far the most common reason for seeing an object with a status of ‘No Baseline Window’ or ‘No Comparison Window’ in the Reorg Recommendation Monitor screen of Query Monitor is because one or more of the user specified CQM_REORG_METRICS absolute thresholds was not met.   However, the user currently has no clue as to what the actual metrics for an object are, because there is no way to display this data. 

Since QM must evaluate these thresholds for each object any way, it would be very helpful if QM could simply externalize this info upon request by the user.  This would allow the user to be able to see the actual calculated values for each metrics so as to better understand the reason why an object is listed as ‘No Baseline Window’ or ‘No Comparison Window’.  This way the user can see how far away or how close to the threshold an object is.  Once the user has this info, they can make adjustments to the thresholds as needed in order to get the best results from Smarter Reorg.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? DBA
How should it work?

My suggestion would be to allow the user to click on the line for an object, and then a detail pane on the right-hand side of the screen would be populated with the actual metrics that were evaluated for that object.  This detail pane would be similar to how the Activity Browser window works today.

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification The ability to see this data would make Smarter Reorg much more usable to the DBA. It would also allow the DBA to adjust the thresholds based on actual data within a performance window. This will make Smarter Reorg much more usable.

    We are thinking of removing the requirment for baselines and using continuous learning to detect degrading performance.
