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.

Terminate the Process Waiting for Dynamic Allocation or Unallocation

CDz runs into temporarily unresponsive periodically 5 to 10 min or even longer due to the reason that SYSZTIOT ENQ exclusively held by CDz itself in which one process can't perform dynamical allocation or un allocation holding all other processes per pmr 86274,L6Q,000.

So it will be great if CDz itself can set up a parameter to terminate the process which hold the exclusive ENQ of SYSZTIOT at certain time threshold.

How will this idea be used?

It will be used to stop CDz from being unresponsive temporarily due to allocation issues.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it thoroughly with my developers, but unfortunately I must reject this as an enhancement to C:D for z/OS.  Connect:Direct does not have control over SYSZTIOT as it could likely be tied up with requests from other applications.  Due to this technical limitation we won't be able to accept this enhancement request.  We do appreciate your use of the Aha! Ideas tool for suggestions and would welcome any future ideas that you submit however.
