IDS Bootcamps

You may have already seen Spokey's blog entry about the IDS bootcamp. I just saw scottishpoet mentioning this on comp.databases.informix.

I think the IDS bootcamp is a great opportunity to learn more about the superior technology in IDS 11.5. So it is worth repeating this information here on The Informix Zone.

As promised here is the english translation from Jerry's interview with the Czech Computerworld.

I would like to say THANK YOU to my good friend Milan for sharing this translation with us. Thank you also to Pamela who did send me a Google translation of the interview. However I think humans can still do this job better than software programs :-).

MACH11: TEMPTAB_NOLOG

MACH11: TEMPTAB_NOLOG

In IDS V11.1 there has been a new onconfig parameter introduced: TEMPTAB_NOLOG

The purpose of this parameter is:

  • Allowing the creation of unlogged temporary tables on secondary servers (SDS,HDR,RSS) without the need to explicitly add the with no log extension
  • Increasing performance for operations on temporary tables on the primary (PRI) as statements against them will not be logged and hence not transfered to a secondary server

Let's have a deeper look at this technique. In the following example we have a primary server and a secondary HDR server. I leave SDS and RSS secondary servers out, as they show exactly the same behaviour as a HDR secondary regarding the TEMPTAB_NOLOG parameter. The dbspace layout looks like this:

HP takes Informix seriously

HP takes Informix seriously

There are two interesting whitepapers available from IBM's (hardware) competitor HP.

The first one discusses how to to scale up and scale out with IDS 11.5 on HP Integrity Servers thru the HP Virtual Server environment. This is an excellent example that shows the versatility of IDS that is able to scale on a single SMP machine as well as on a cluster of (SMP) machines.

Informix displaces Oracle at China Telecom

A strategic win for IBM Informix at the China Telecom has been reported by Informix City:

for the company's Integrated Settlement System. They also planned to convince local
