All,

I'm using Cache 2014.1 in an openVMS environment.

If I have multiple RMS files to clean up, for example.

!DIR MEMBER_EXTRACT.*;*

MEMBER_EXTRACT.CSV;2                    MEMBER_EXTRACT.CSV;1
MEMBER_EXTRACT.PROC;1                   MEMBER_EXTRACT.TXT;3
MEMBER_EXTRACT.TXT;2                    MEMBER_EXTRACT.TXT;1

S FILE="MEMBER_EXTRACT.*;*"

Do ##class(%Library.File).ComplexDelete(FILE)

Problem

I'm working on exporting data from an Intersystems Cache database through the Cache ODBC Driver. There is a particular table that is giving me an error message. The ODBC Driver crashes and reports an error from the Cache system. I think I was able to trace down where the error is coming from, but I do not know how to debug or fix the error.

The table I am trying to extract is called SEDMIHP.

Here's the Error:

Currently, we are running 2014.1 on two different servers (OpenVMS, RHEL). The plan is to transition from OpenVMS to RHEL, but our Write Daemon is in a Troubled state on both servers.

On the OpenVMS server, we have a WIJ file that's 26G and can grow to 40G (size of database cache). Since it hasn't grown to 40G, we don't believe the size of the WIJ file to be the issue.

What else should we be looking at regarding the performance of the Write Daemon?

We will be transitioning from a server running HP OpenVMS to one running RHEL 7. The main question some of the team had was what would be the best method for moving the globals to the new system.

Also, I was wondering if any others have transitioned from OpenVMS to RHEL. If so, were there any kinks that we should be aware of prior to transition?

VSI OpenVMS

The last version of Caché, Ensemble released for VSI OpenVMS is 2017.1. Unlike HP OpenVMS (Alpha and Itanium), VSI OpenVMS on Itanium continues to be supported. This means that critical corrections or changes required to support customer’s hardware purchases will all be based on 2017.1 or earlier versions.

Currently, we have an application running in one namespace ("Database B") that has globals and routines mapped to another database ("Database A"). After enforcing clean up on Database A, we found that 90% of the disk is free. We would like to compact Database A and release the unused space. However, we are running OpenVMS, which seems to be the issue.

For databases consisting of only globals, we are able to use ^GBLOCKCOPY; however, we need to ensure that the routines and mappings are also copied.

Per the information at http://docs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=... I am trying to use a call to $ZF("GETFILE") to obtain information about an OpenVMS file. But I get an <ILLEGAL VALUE> error.

For example:

w $zf("GETFILE",filename,"UIC")

reports:

<ILLEGAL VALUE>

My filename variable contains the full path and name of a file that I own. I hold the %All role in Cache.

Can someone direct me to where in the documentation we can find how consumption may be calculated for global storage?

Caché Version2010.1
Operating SystemHP OpenVMS 8.4

EDIT: After receiving some responses, it seems I was unclear in my initial inquiry. I am looking to determine our rate of consumption of storage; however, I am having some difficulty in doing that.

I realize that Cache Studio is the standard method to edit routines.  However, some clients make it difficult to access their server that supports Studio.  Is there an editor that can be run from the programmer prompt that allows simple WYSIWYG editing of routines?  I know there is a %Routine class that you can use to do command-line editing, but I am looking for a full screen editor.

What was the standard in OpenVMS Cache before there was Cache Studio?

Thanks!
Bryan

Alert: Database Compaction

August 24, 2016 – Alert: Database Compaction

This is an addendum to the Alert published on October 14, 2015 – Alert: Database Defragmentation.

That alert indicated that the database defragmentation utility in 2014.1 and higher, on all platforms except OpenVMS, could cause database degradation and the correction JO2871 is available to clients upon request and would be included in future releases.  The correction was included in 2015.1.3, 2015.2.2 and 2016.1.
