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.

IDS 12.10 syspurge enhancement

Description:

We are experiencing locking errors during IBM Informix Dynamic Server syspurge causing a failure to complete syspurge specifically with tables using interval fragmentation. We understand that currently IBM cannot guarantee that there will not be concurrency issues however, we are requesting an enhancement to mitigate exclusive locking issues while using online attach and detach functions.

Use Case:

Our payment systems process financial transactions constantly and can not be turned off without significant efforts. We have implemented interval fragmentation on high volume tables and the detach functionality is consistently failing. This means our intent to automate a purge strategy using interval fragmentation is not working.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Any High volume OLTP clients utilizing an interval fragmentation strategy
How should it work?

Please enhance the detach functionality enabling it to wait or somehow queue up and have a turn as opposed to failing. I suggest that it work similar to the attach functionality if that is in some way different. The reason I suggest that is because we do not see this issue during the attach process of the interval fragmentation.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Our automation effort is to eliminate the manual intervention and man hour requirements to purge large volumes of transactional data. Our goal is stability by eliminating the high risk of manual error and team member man hours required to complete the manual purge strategy.
