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.

B2Bi server down should indicate node ID

When ICC sees that a node went down in B2Bi, it only shows the server name/alias and not the node that went down

How will this idea be used?

When monitoring a B2Bi cluster, if a node goes down the alert can only indicat the B2Bi is down but not which node in the cluster - This information should be available at the time B2Bi went down

    I changed the rule to use the CGIS013I message ID and the alerts never happened when the node went down.

    You are correct that when a server down event, CCTR034E, is generated it will only have the server name/alias

    However, when ICC detects that a B2Bi server’s node is down, it emits a CGIS013I event which does include the name of the node that is down

    CGIS013I GIS Node status is down. Node: {0}

    If there's a problem in this area, or this does not meet your needs, please let us know.
