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.

DSNT376I messages reintroduced

With introduction of APARs PH08708 and PH08431, messages DSNT376I are suppressed.

These are the sentences:

PH08708 -> When Timeout Exit is called, IRLM may flag that no DSNT376I message should be issued. In this situation IFCID 196 records will still be written but there will be no DSNT376I message on the console for these additional waiters being timed out.

PH08431 -> During this time period, the msgDSN376I will be suppressed while the IFC196
continues to be cut.


Now the db2 DB2MSTR joblog no longer reports all DSNT376I messages that correlate a timeout / deadlock with the contender and therefore it is difficult to quickly identify the origin of the contention.

The QM, in section 2 (View SQLCODE) implements the display of these but also in v330 (expanded with respect to v320) there is no reference with respect to the contender.

 Is it possible to expand this function to get this information?

    This feature is in OMPE and will not be implemented.

IBM's success depends on gathering feedback from customers like yourself. Aha Ideas Portal is the third party tool through which IBM Offering Managers gather feedback from customers such as yourself.
IBM is a global organization with business processes, management structures, technical systems and service provider networks that cross borders. As such, the information collected through Aha Ideas Portal (Customer Name, Customer Email Address) will be stored by them in the United States, and handled only as per IBM's instructions and policies. Your data (Name and Email Address) will NOT be shared with other IBM customers.
In order to safeguard your information in Aha, do not leave your workstation unattended while using this application, log off after using it, and print only if necessary. If you need to make a hardcopy, remember to pick up the print-out immediately, keep it under lock, and destroy it immediately when no longer needed.
