Currently one can only write to an external table by selecting from an existing table. There are many uses for writing to an external table that do not involved writing only the results of a SELECT query. Combined with RFE INFX-I-61, Appendable Ex...
A tool to copy statistics between environments, currently this has to be done manually in an unsupported way. This would also allow refreshing statistics on a copy of the environment without needing to refresh the schema e.g . nightly copies. Also...
More efficient unique indexes for monotonically increasing keys and constraints
Currently an index on a SERIAL and other monotonically increasing keys only add to the last node in the index causing the node to split into two half filled nodes. Eventually a sufficient number of nodes have so split that the index's search effic...
Allow more than 50 MB for UPDATE STATISTICS MEDIUM/HIGH sort operations
UPDATE STATISTICS MEDIUM/HIGH operations that do not use indices for sort are restricted to 50 MB before the system will use temporary space. This limit has remained unchanged for a long time and could be increased quite a lot on a modern system. ...
Allow placement of tablespace BYTE and TEXT data in a separate dbspace from the table's base row data.
Allow specifying a normal dbspace for a BYTE or TEXT column to isolate IOs for the blob data from main row data for the table. This would be logged space just like IN TABLE as opposed to IN blobspace blob pages.
