  • Start the web server for OpenEdge Management/Explorer earlier when the AdminServer...

    In the 'old' days when we still had the Progress Explorer Tool on Windows, you could start the PET and connect to the AdminService almost immediately after the service was started. This allowed you to very quickly see which resources are configured...
  • 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...

  • Need datatype for efficient usage of GUID unique ID

    Hi, currently we are using a CHARACTER - GUID ("eb149dfe-c01f-50ac-3a14-66c56c902384") in many tables for unique ID. Analyses of database storage shows that this is highly inefficient on storage and most likely on performance as well. ...
