IIUG discussion forums?
Posted by: bryce@hrnz.co.nz (BRYCE STENBERG) - Tue, 14 Aug 2018 20:27:18 EDT
Hi,



I get emailed messages from various discussion forums on IIUG. A month or two

back we were asked to confirm our email address due to system changes (?) or

something.

Since then the volume of messages has dropped to almost nothing, previously it

was really quite busy.

I was just curious if the discussions had moved to some other platform or

address, or have informix discussions just died?



Thanks,

Bryce.

Looks we have a gap in our documentation in explaining the change that

happened in JC8. Looking at the documentation locations you provided we should

be able to add a few lines in there explaining the separate jar is not

required after JC7.

Letters in SQL Flipping When Using Java
Posted by: iiug@vicpylon.com (TRENT COLWELL) - Tue, 07 Aug 2018 12:08:37 EDT
I have an odd situation. I have an HP_UX 11.31 Server with 12.10FC6 IDS on it

and suddenly one of my users is reporting 217 errors (column not found).

Looked at the error message he receives and it shows the letters "Q" and "A"

are sometimes flipping. So a column named "Stat_mark" listed inthe sql becomes

"Stqt_mark," which fails. Bounced the app server and DB server and turned on

onmode -I to trap it, but on the DB side I see clean sql. Any thoughts?

Dbaccess queries perform normally.

Re: onrestorept vs. onmode -b?
Posted by: mark.jalkiewicz@verizon.net (MARK JALKIEWICZ) - Thu, 02 Aug 2018 11:29:12 EDT
David,



best to configure onrestorept (CONVERSION_GUARD & RESTORE_POINT_DIR in the

onconfig file). Just make sure RESTORE_POINT_DIR has available space (only

stores the before images of any converted pages as I recall).



I have had to utilize onrestorept functionality before and it is a very handy

and useful feature as you don't have to perform a lengthy cold restore should

the upgrade process fail for whatever reason. If the upgrade is successful

then the data in the RESTORE_POINT_DIR is removed automatically so if you have

to revert back after this point then you have to use onmode -b or a level 0

restore.

IDS 12.10.FC3

Solaris 10 1/13



I am preparing to do an in-place upgrade from 12.10.FC3 to 12.10.FC11. (I have

completely separate directories for existing 12.10.FC3 and the new

12.10.FC11.)



In the event of a failed upgrade, is "onrestorept" the recommended first line

of attack? "Or onmode -b"?



Would doing an 'ontape' cold restore from a level 0 archive (taken immediately

prior to the upgrade attempt) be the third thing to try?



I am not expecting any trouble, but want to be prepared.



I do not upgrade very often, so wish to exercise the utmost caution, and be

prepared.



Thank you.



DG



Repsonse:



So onrestorept and onmode -b would be used in different situations. You would

only use onrestorept in the event that the conversion failed some portion of

the way through and the server came offline without having completed the

conversion. If the conversion completes successfully (as indicated by messages

in MSGPATH) and for some reason after the conversion is done and you want to

go back to your previous version, you would use onmode -b. So onrestorept is

to back out of a conversion that failed in progress, while onmode -b is used

to revert to a previous version after the system had been successfully

converted.



Yes, taking a full level 0 archive right before doing your conversion is also

recommended, and yes that archive could be used to restore your system back to

it's pre-conversion attempt state.

Ideal chunk auto extend size
Posted by: ramon.rey@onyxcentersource.com (RAMON REY) - Mon, 30 Jul 2018 11:52:37 EDT
Hello all!



I'm playing with the idea of setting up chunk/dbspace auto extend, and I was

wondering about a few things:



Keeping in mind that Informix has a global auto extend policy, I was

wondering:



1. What's the ideal starting size for an extendable chunk?

2. What's the ideal size for each auto extend?

3. How often can I check for dbspaces to be running out of space?/How taxing

is this check on the database?

4. How fast is the chunk extend process? Is it be comparable to dd?



I appreciate your help in advance!



Cheers!

Re: Fix oncheck -pT WARNING messages?
Posted by: benjamin.thompson@skybettingandgaming.com (BENJAMIN THOMPSON) - Mon, 30 Jul 2018 09:05:44 EDT
Hi, probably your problem relates to defect:



IT00781 EVEN WITH THE FIXES FOR IC98053 AND IC98529 THE ONCHECK -CD CAN REPORT

WARNING: DATA PAGE APPEARS TO BE MORE OR LESS FULL



This was fixed in 11.70.xC8W1 and I think it was also a bug in early 12.10

releases.



I would expect that the table reporting the error has one of more varchar

columns and I don't think it matters what you set MAX_FILL_DATA_PAGES to.



I think the main consequence of the defect is that bitmap pages that should

indicate the pages they describe are full do not and, therefore, the engine

can end up inspecting the data pages to look for empty space rather than

skipping past them. This can slow down inserts when all the extents for a

table or index are nearly full; if the tables are large the slow down can be

quite considerable.



If you didn't see this defect there is nothing to worry about and I can see

from your other post that your upgrade went well.



Ben.

Re: Chunks are changing ownership to root disk
Posted by: douglawry@hotmail.com (DOUG LAWRY) - Mon, 30 Jul 2018 08:00:30 EDT
Hi Benji.



On Linux, if "udevd" is running, you need to enforce ownership with a file

such as this:



$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/99-informix.rules

ENV{DM_VG_NAME}=="datavg", ENV{DM_LV_NAME}=="*dbs*", OWNER:="informix",

GROUP:="informix", MODE:="660"



Otherwise, create a script in /etc/init.d to correct with "chown" after

reboot.



On AIX, set the owner and group in the ODM during creation (mklv) or correct

later (chlv) with options "-U informix -G informix".

Doug Lawry

It appears that the WARNINGs about bitmap size didn't impede the in-place

upgrade.



I restored an archive of production into an instance on another machine, then

did the in-place upgrade on that. Seems to be just fine.

P.S. This database only produces the oncheck -pT WARNINGs on our production

server. When I dbexport/dbimport that database to another server, there are

zero oncheck WARNINGs about size of data pages. The WARNINGs only appear in

the original database.

Re: Where to download OAT?

Hi Mark,

The latest version of Informix CSDK, which contains OAT is 4.10.tc9 (32 bit

WIN). You can download it from IBM fixcentral.

If you prefer a Linux version of Informix CSDK and OAT, you should look for

4.10.UC9 or 4.10.FC9.

You can try this link for WIN:



https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent=ibm%7EInformation%20Management&product=ibm/Information+Management/Informix+Client+Software+Development+Kit&release=4.10.TC8&platform=Windows+32-bit,+x86&function=all



Versions of Informix CSDK higher than 4.10.XC9 do not contain OAT.

Fix oncheck -pT WARNING messages?
Posted by: david.grove@alaska.gov (DAVID GROVE) - Thu, 26 Jul 2018 20:40:30 EDT
IDS 12.10.FC3

Solaris 10 1/13



This thread follows from a previous thread:



http://members.iiug.org/forums/ids/index.cgi/read/41114



in which there was an issue of Server Studio space usage reporting that I

didn't understand, and output of oncheck -pT that I also didn't understand.



Because this lvarchar issue seems like it may have been corrected in a later

version of IDS (and also just because it's been 4 or 5 years since we

upgraded), I decided to upgrade from IDS 12.10.FC3 to 12.10.FC11. Then, I'll

revisit this space issue and see if it is still an issue.



So, I plan to do an in-place upgrade.



I ran "oncheck -pt <database>", and no issues are reported. I ran "oncheck -pT

<database>" and get about 1 million "WARNING: data page <whatever> in

tablespace <whatever> appears to be more or less full than is indicated in the

bitmap" in various tables.



There were no ERROR messages.



Is there any danger? Should I run 'oncheck -pT -y <database>' before doing the

in-place upgrade?



Thank you.

I've tried searching the DeveloperWorks website, as well as doing a Google

search, looking for Informix OAT. All that I can find is documents on how to

use it or how to do various tasks within it, but I can't find where to

download it. Does anyone have the address of the current download site? I'd

prefer to get the 11.70 version, but could try the 12.10 if it is fully

backward-compatible (all the way back to 11.50).



Thanks in advance.

Benji,



You did not mention the OS you are running under , but on AIX after applying a

TL upgrade on the server the database is running on I noticed the ownership of

the character (raw) devices will default back to root:system. I did not take

the time to run down the reasons' why this occurs , I just simply change them

back to informix:informix in a script.
