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.

Include transfer rates monitoring on active filetransfers

Please include file transfer rate monitoring mechanism on active filetransfers. We had an issue with partner where after partner side upgrade the transfer rate became very slow. The filetransfer that took previously minutes, was now hours long. Sadly suggestion in case included below isn't sufficient, because it applies on already completed file transfers and on active filetransfers which can became hours long and it can be too late then. We could see under SEL PRC that Bytes written towards that partner node was 10x lower than usual when refreshing this information manually, so the information looks to be there, but there's no good way to monitor it.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we are in agreement that adding details to more accurately view transfer rates in real time would be helpful. I am accepting this request and we will look to move it onto the roadmap moving forward.


    Sincerely,
