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.

Control Center 6.1+ Control the number of processes, events, and alerts that are display when viewing All servers

In a busy MFT environment, it is very easy for the number of events, processes, and event alerts to reach 10,000.  If a curious user clicks on "View all servers", the number of processes, events, and alerts can show to be over 10,000 for all servers.  If a user clicks on any of these items, it can take considerable time for results to be returned.  Also the particular EP where this was done, may not be able to be logged into until the results have been displayed.  Although a user can log onto another EP if one is available, the current design can lead to issues.  Please let me know if you have questions about this.

    There needs to be some parameters add to the engine.properties that will allow the admin to control the number of Alerts, processes, and events that are displayed for all servers.  In a busy MFT environment, it is very easy to reach 10,000 during a given day.  We do not want users to one of those items that is displaying 10,000 items and then it takes considerable time to return results which can impact any user who is logged into the same EP.
