Distributed Data Management

Syndicate content 6 

Several years ago everyone got mad about BigData – nobody knew when smallish data will become BIGDATA, but all knows that it’s trendy and the way to go.

In part I of this series we have introduced MapReduce as a generic concept, and in part II we started to approach Caché ObjectScript implementation via introducing abstract interfaces. Now we will try to provide more concrete examples of applications using MapReduce.

Good day

Additional tool for MUMPS servers MiniM InterConnect:

http://www.minimdb.com/tools/interconnect.html

to connect job on one MUMPS server to other job on other MUMPS server in client-server mode. This tool can connect different MUMPS systems on different OS and with different processors - MiniM, Cache and GT.M in any pairs.

Regards,

Eugene Karataev

The technology of load balancing between several servers with relatively low capacity has been a standard feature of Caché for quite a while. It is based on the distributed cache technology called ECP (Enterprise Cache Protocol). ECP provides a host of possibilities for horizontal scaling of an application, and yet keeping the project budget fairly low. Another apparent advantage of ECP network is the possibility to conceal its architecture in the depths of Caché configuration so that applications developed for the traditional (vertical) architecture can be fairly easily migrated to a horizontal ECP environment. The ease of this process is so mesmerizing, that you start wishing it was always this way. For instance, everybody is used to having a possibility to control Caché processes: the $Job system variable and associated classes/functions work magic in skilful hands. Stop, but now processes can end up being on different Caché servers…

This article is about how to gain as much transparency in controlling processes in ECP environment as in traditional (non ECP) one.

We are finally planning to migrate some ancient Caché applications that are run on Caché 5.0.21 to a new server with Caché 2016.2.0 or so.

I wonder if we could use Shadowing between those to keep the data on the new server up to date?

We would copy the Caché backup from the old environment to the new and do a RESTORE there and then start shadowing.

I know than 5.0.21 is no more officially supported by ISC.
