This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
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:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.

We are always interested in having the file system operations perform as efficiently as possible. Destroying a stream has many factors that affect the length of time it takes. As noted we already do a lot of the destroy in parallel in the P0FBAIT000x tasks. Other activity on this system as well as hardware speeds also plays a factor.
We plan to do additional investigation on whether there is something we can do differently.
The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority requirement that should be addressed.
Background: The CEAC members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.
To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ ibm.biz/BdYSYj and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at ibm.biz/BdYSZT

we are currently implementing (S)FTP(S) based services for some customers where they put their data on a daily base, deleting old data. Starting with about 20GB of file size, deletion needs significant amount of time on "normal" hardware. Switched to full flash based SAN the situation is better but at a high cost. Freeing pointers for IFS objecs should be run asynchronous like for deleting of QSYS objects.
Replaced file server for 2 customers with their IBM i IFS (as they had some space TB) works like a charm for everything <4GB files. Need better performance for better argument to replace Windows or Linux file servers ;-)
