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

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 a notification 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.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Add information about last winkin date in output of lsdo command.

Currently, output information of last access date by "lsdo-l" command.

But in actuality this information same as created date.

We need information of last used date the DO.

That means last winkin date by the DO.

We will use this information for judgement of the DO can be delete or not by manually.

    The request is for the "last access time" of a DO object to be the last time it was winked in to a view. Right now, the last access time is reported as = original creation time (and not stored at all in the VOB). Dumping the DO will tell you the FIRST winkin date/time, which is of minimal use when trying to manage DO storage pool size.

    Also, right now the %d format option appears to print the date of the original DP creation. There will need to be a way to report on the last winkin time for recording it to be of use.

    SF case: TS008770225. Escalation: CHCLS00155182.

    Currently, the "last access" in "lsdo -l" output never changes. It is always the same with the DO creation date. As per CHCLS00155182, customer wants to update it to be "Last accessed time of a DO when it is winked in".

    Customer's VOB has about 400GB ~ 500GB DO data. Using the Scrubber to delete DO which has 0 reference count can only reduce about 10% of them. This is why customer wants another measurement to justify which DOs to delete.
