Resolving In Place Alters - Part 3

In Resolving In Place Alters - Part 2 I decided that I want to try to identify only the pages with a pending IPA and only "fix" those data pages in an attempt to speed up the resolving of IPAs and limit the work load added to the system when doing so.

Resolving In Place Alters - Part 2

In Part 1 I talked about how I knew that the prescribed method of resolving the pending in place alters in my large table by simply issuing a single large dummy update statement to update each row won't work for large tables. There are just too many problems with long transactions, locks and excessive I/O that can trash the engine.

I'm Back! Did You Think I was Gone Forever?

I Sure Did Miss You

Truth be told, I just haven't had much to write about until now. I haven't been doing much of anything interesting with Informix. Sure, I've been doing the day to day Informix DBA stuff, but nothing blog worthy. Mostly I've been working on some software development, data mining and business optimization projects for my company. But that all changed this week.

China is standardizing all new database applications on Informix!

Here's the "world" shaking news I promised. IBM and China have come to an agreement whereby IBM will share the code for Informix with a Chinese software house, GBASE, who will modify its security code to conform to Chinese government standards. In turn China will be building all future database projects using Informix.
