  • 'rfutil -S scan verbove' to report the user numbers

    The recovery notes contain the user numbers but 'rfutil -S scan verbose' reports only user's names stored in the RL_TBGN notes. It's very inconvenient when we need to parse the transactions generated, for example, by batch processes that...

    Request: extend proutil -C enableB2 syntax to allow table <table name> or index <table.index>. Same with proutil -C disableB2.

    • Under Review
    If we allow a default first parameter for horizontal partitions set as TENANT/SITE we can set a default value for this parameter, it will then allow us to get similar benefit as vertical partitioning while still being able to use horizontal partitioning...
  • 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...
