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.

Let Control Center have the ability to monitor critical database system events on a monitored SI server

Today, if a B2BI node looses its connection to the database server, it sends out an email. I would like Control Center to have the ability to detect if that event has occurred and send out an alert.

How will this idea be used?

It will be used to alert oncall and management if a critical database event has occurred to a B2BI instance. That way we can quickly get the system back running again. As it is now, the only way to get an alert is to setup an outlook rule that looks for this email sent by SI and have it send out a message to peoples phones.

    I agree it would be great for ICC to be able to monitor the DB items for B2Bi. Like database size nearing MAX. So you can get alerted when it reach certain thresholds.

    I have seen instances where B2BI shows an event (with email) but is not captured in Control Center. I have the rule to monitor for CCTR034E.

    When there is a critical db event for B2BI, doesn't the monitored server on Control Center appear in a down status?  If so, you can setup a Control Center rule when the B2BI server goes down to send an email.
