    IBM has modified some of the information in this request. Please contact us if you have any questions. In particular a typo was corrected in the headline -- "Guage" was changed to "Gauge".

    The CAAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a “nice to have” low priority feature. There is an API, but perhaps this could be considered for a DB2 Service. The work-around API information is located here:!/wiki/IBM%20i%20Technology%20Updates/page/IBM%20i%20SSD%20Fuel%20Gauge

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key 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.
