Add does-not-contain option in SQL Plan Cache Statements

Access Client Solutions SQL Performance Center has a button "Show Statements..." that displays a "SQL Plan Cache Statements" window. You have a variety of filters, including "Statements that contain the following text". I think it would be incredibly helpful to have an option to omit certain statements. I use this periodically to review SQL statements for performance problems. A large number of QSYS2.RECEIVE_DATA_QUEUE show up showing a high processing time. That's because they're waiting on data queue entries to be written. I'd like a way to omit those erroneous entries.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    We recognize the request as having value. However with many other higher priority items, the database team is unlikely to implement this idea any time soon.
