Enabling In-Place Data Writing with Exalytics

Остаются только детские эмоции, когда в угоду продаж железок портят софт. Теперь даже не будет предприниматься и попытки использовать старое место блока для записи .


The INPLACEDATAWRITE setting in essbase.cfg enables or disables in-place data writing.

Prior to this release, each time a data block was updated, it was written to a new disk location. With this release, for Exalytics, Essbase enables in-place data writing.

In-place data writing means that when updates occur, the data block can be written to the same location, as long as the compressed size of the data block fits in its original location on the disk.

In-place data writing can help reduce data fragmentation and lower the need for frequent restructuring of database. It also reduces the need for frequent index updates, resulting in improved performance.
