    Yeah, I know what that feels like.

    Unluckily this must be of no interest.

      I find federation in general to be slow (when interacting with actual Oracle databases especially) and steer people away from it when possible.

      • Raul Baron says:

        Yes, true. I’ve been trying to convince my customers to flee away from it. The problem is that they already have federation in several tables due to business requirements. But certainly I agree with you. Thanks Ember.

    Hi Ember thanks for the tip.. it’s great IBM now allows us to vote for RFE’s.

    In particular to your RFE (66344) am sure I am ignorant of your customer distress (the RFE is not going to include) but if customers take that long to upgrade to newer DB2 versions or they miss the opportunity to move tables into separate tbspaces before they reach the limit then I think it’s more a fail on their side rather than something IBM needs to fix for them. Perhaps it is a small code change but still it shouts more on the customer side failing to plan these things.


    • Ember Crooks says:

      Moving all of the tables in a database after upgrade can be a hurculean effort. Dropping and recreating a database is not an acceptable solution to the syscatspace issue to me. The work associated with these is difficult and complicated.
