Online.log could also print session detail of additional memory segment allocation
In high usage OLTP systems, it is a hard work to identify which session(s) is(are) demanding too much memory from the Informix engine.A good thing for us to help to identify abnormal programs execution/behaviour would be to print session details (...
HammerDB is a leading benchmarking tool to benchmark database performance. This tool enables DBA to verify configuration of the OS/database and assess the impact of any hardware or database configuration changes.
HammerDB supports DB2 however ...
Consolidate free space across entire chunk or dbspace
I suggest a repack-like tool which consolidates free space in an entire chunk or dbspace in order to get few, big enough, free spaces to use efficiently. Being able to do so online and with little blocking is desirable
For high use OLTP systems, there can be a lot of I/O pressure on the logical log due to intense rate of logical log buffer flushing (most customer don't ant data loss so they use UNBUFFERED LOG). Setting BUFFERED LOG at session level would hardly ...
Allow the specification of the isolation mode at the statement level
The programmer should be able to specify the isolation mode (committed read, dirty read, serializable etc.) at the statement level.I don't have a definitive idea on how to specify this in terms of syntax. It could be in a "clean" way like: SELECT ...
Make adoption of forest-of-trees indices easier with existing large tables
Rebuilding an index as a FOT is not supported using "alter fragment on index init". This would be useful to avoid dropping and later re-adding primary keys and referencing foreign keys. Building a FOT index is not possible in parallel. Building a ...
Currently the syntax to define a trusted context accepts only IP's . In view that microservices are deployed on Kubernetes infrastructures, the DBA has to add all the IP's of the different subnets. This is both cumbersome and laborious. The propos...
Implement CREATE OR REPLACE option for triggers/views/synonyms/row types
Since a similar option for stored procedures is available starting with version 14.10 it would be handy if this syntax could also be introduced for triggers, views, synonyms and row types. Currently you first have to drop a trigger/view/synonym or...
We would like to see the ability to add limits when enabling sqltrace to limit it to only trace by specific requirements. The basic one, which this alone would make a huge difference would be the ability to list one or more tables and only have it...
