I'm not going to bring it in prod soon and I'd love to evaluate a more recent version than 1.0.3, but I don't want to get stopped to soon by the db ... my own errors are enough ;-)
goreXP what's your problem with Firebird? Do you absolutely need a new feature and the team is too slow in rolling it out?
firebird 1.5 is scaling better than 1.0.3 and rc6 is
like a pre release version . I think only small bugs
will be found until the final . So is a better ideea to develop on it , when you finish the project the final
realese will be out .
Now is time for a good story with fb 1.5 from our lists
| just wanted to pass this along for your encouragement: |
Due to following the suggestions in the FB support and development
newsgroups over the past month we were able to greatly improve the intense
processing of our master databases. To recap, the changes made were:
Upgrade from Windows FB 1.02 SS to FB 1.5 RC5 Classic (to use multiple
Fix all indexes that had a huge amount of duplicates
Take the duplicate record check out of import and make it it's own
Change the duplicate record check logic
These suggestions were made by Nickolay Samofatov, Sean Leyne, Alexander
Nevsky, and others.
The result: The normal 23 hour processing of our largest database was
reduced to 2 hours! And the server has now been running multiple databases
with no "lockups" for over a week now. Database backups and cleanups run
smooth and the sweep (after deleting 3 million records out of around 7 to 9
million) takes only 3 to 4 minutes rather than hours or even days.
Thank you all very much!
