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.

The databases table for MSSQL is very useful to pinpoint which database is causing a high resource load, but the presentation of this table makes it hard to use:
1. The columns for User Connections, Virtual File Reads, Virtual File Writes and Transactions show the value of the last data point in the time window. This makes it hard to find the database that caused the highest load during the time window. It would be much more useful if it shows the SUM of the values in the time window.
2. I also noticed that zooming in or out removes data-points instead of summing them together meaning that I currently have to entirely zoom-in and then count the amount of data points and SUM then myself to figure out the actual amount.
3. Same for data-retention as that removes data points without summing the removed values together with the remaining values so the picture becomes distorted (instead of losing resolution we now loose information).
