  • Add additional attributes to database files and fields

    I'd like to see SERIALIZE-NAME, SERIALIZE-HIDDEN, XML-NODE-NAME, XML-NODE-TYPE, XML-DATA-TYPE added to the Data Dictionary for Fields and Tables where relevant. Our field names were designed many years ago and not real user friendly when reading...
  • Separate Index Selection for WHERE and for BY

    The current implementation of Index Selection Rules practically excludes the BY phrase to be taken into consideration when selecting index(es). At least when developers make sure that it is the WHERE phrase that gets the attention as it limits the number...
  • Enable Large Files should be removed or default

    A newly created database should have LargeFile support as default or that option should be entierly removed. A 2 GB size limit in 2017 is rather laughable. Missing this out leads to unwanted shutdowns.
  • Add option startdate and enddate to rfutil aimage scan

    To scan an after image file, you can use the following command: rfutil db-name -C aimage scan [verbose] {-a ai-name | -ailist listfile} > output file name It would be very handy when you can use a start date and end date in case of a very large...
  • Add a simple flag to VSTs to show quiet point active

    At the moment to establish if a quiet point is active or not you have to parse the logfile or Promon output. Please could a flag be added in the VSTs that will tell us this information. I don't want to rely on the fact that the proquiet command...

    Currently you can have replication and replication sets on databases but failover is stil something you'd probably prefer to do manually and automatic failover in case of a network split can cause split brain where multiple nodes can become master...

    Hello ! Good day. Please consider below IDEA to improve Open Edge Database's PROBKUP utility: Current Behavior Under certain circumstances PROBKUP ends Successfully but it isn't possible to restore it later, with PROREST getting messages...
  • Option to restrict db access through remote system

    Currently it is possible to connect to database through TCP connection from network. If the database is exposed to internet, then the risk is even higher. Anyone from the outside world can connect to database by knowing few basic parameters. This is a...
  • OE Management Alerts - System Error

    When OE Management alerts on a SYSTEM ERROR the date and time stamp on the alert is the date and time the error was discovered, not the date and time the error was actually logged. This means you have to do some work within the logfile to work out what...
  • Startup parameter - SQLWIDHTUPDATE behavior needs to be changed with more option...

    Recently we tried to use -SQLWIDTHUPDATE ON parameter on our database but our application team does not like behavior. Currently once this parameter is ON , client connected gets truncated data in first connection and then in next connection it gets correct...
