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.

Cluster statistics utility - queue and thread monitoring

A utility is required that logs queue usage on each node in a Sterling Integrator cluster

The utility should track queue usage over time by node and for each node be able to provide statistics (eg. average, min, max, count) for a time period on: Queue depths over time; Time on queue (by business process, or by queue) [wait time]; Time on thread (by business process, or by queue) [execution time]; Number of times business processes have been returned to queue (by business process, or by queue); Number of cycles executed (by business process, or by queue); Occurrence of thread stealing (by business process, or by queue); Occurrence of thread being stolen (by queue); Occurrence of handover of business processes to other nodes (by business process, or by queue).

All other information displayed in real time by Queue Watcher would also be useful to keep a record of over time and analyse - some examples of other useful info: DB Pool Usage, JVM Memory Heap space usage, Cluster Multicast Information.

    This idea should be prioritized in the product to compete with other monitoring tools out there in the market.
