IBM Sterling Ideas

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

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting 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 notifications 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.

Adapter Containers: Allow container-specific JVM arguments

Right now, if you want to add custom JVM arguments to adapter containers (say for JVM monitoring), this is done via the Performance Tuning wizard. The wizard provides only one field for custom JVM arguments, which are then applied to all adapter containers on that server.

If JVM monitoring requires that each JVM identify itself uniquely (say with a name such as "Node1AC1"), the Tuning wizard has no provision for this.

Please add some way of setting flags independently for each container, or some way to view and edit the final JVM command for the containers.

How will this idea be used?

Allowing container-specific JVM flags allows us to use JVM monitoring tools to monitor health and performance of all the Sterling Integrator JVM's running on the server, reduce incidents/crashes, and improve uptime/reliability

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. We agree that this idea would add value, and have added it to our longer term roadmap. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest and adjust priority if needed. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
