Cloud Management and AIOps

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 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.

Please use the following category to raise ideas for these offerings for all environments (traditional on-premises, containers, cloud):

  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management

  • Cloud Pak for Network Automation - incl Orchestration and Performance Management

  • Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps - incl Netcool Operations Management portfolio

Historical data presented in graphic for a period of one month minumum.

The text below explain what we had in ITM 6.3 and what we wanted to have in APM 8.1.4. Because this enhancement does not meet IBM strategic initiatives for APM v8 we would like to have this feature in IBM Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management.

We have moved from ITM v6.3 to Cloud APM v8.1.4 and we want to see data for multiple days in the same widget/view like we can in ITM shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU rather than comparing data from today to the same time period for another day or comparing data from two days within 30 days back like we can in APM. In APM using attribute details as shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU_APM when we select 24h and 5 days ago we can see data for only 2 days but not for 5 days. Also in APM using custom views as shown on picture KAFLOMNI1_CPU_APM_1 we can see data for only 1 day.

In ITM we can see data from 30 days back for every day and we would like to have that feature in APM also, so we can create montly report for customers.

Idea Priority High
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Our customers want monthly report for example to see CPU or RAM usage graph for 30 days back for every day in order to determine what happened in their system for specific month.
