PostgreSQL 12: More progress reporting

Yann Neuhaus - Thu, 2019-04-04 03:51

PostgreSQL 9.6 introduced a new view called pg_stat_progress_vacuum which gives information about currently running vacuum processes. That was a great addition because since then you could easily estimate on how long a specific vacuum process will need to complete. PostgreSQL 12 will use the same infrastructure to extend that to more operations.

The first operation that can now be tracked is cluster. For that a new view is available which gives the following information:

postgres=# \d pg_stat_progress_cluster
           View "pg_catalog.pg_stat_progress_cluster"
       Column        |  Type   | Collation | Nullable | Default 
---------------------+---------+-----------+----------+---------
 pid                 | integer |           |          | 
 datid               | oid     |           |          | 
 datname             | name    |           |          | 
 relid               | oid     |           |          | 
 command             | text    |           |          | 
 phase               | text    |           |          | 
 cluster_index_relid | bigint  |           |          | 
 heap_tuples_scanned | bigint  |           |          | 
 heap_tuples_written | bigint  |           |          | 
 heap_blks_total     | bigint  |           |          | 
 heap_blks_scanned   | bigint  |           |          | 
 index_rebuild_count | bigint  |           |          | 

As always, lets generate a sample table and some indexes so we have something cluster can work on:

postgres=# create table t1 as select a,md5(a::text) as txt, now() as date from generate_series(1,3000000) a;
SELECT 3000000
postgres=# create index i1 on t1(a);
CREATE INDEX
postgres=# create index i2 on t1(txt);
CREATE INDEX
postgres=# create index i3 on t1(date);
CREATE INDEX
postgres=# \d t1
                         Table "public.t1"
 Column |           Type           | Collation | Nullable | Default 
--------+--------------------------+-----------+----------+---------
 a      | integer                  |           |          | 
 txt    | text                     |           |          | 
 date   | timestamp with time zone |           |          | 
Indexes:
    "i1" btree (a)
    "i2" btree (txt)
    "i3" btree (date)

Once we cluster that table we should see the progress in pg_stat_progress_cluster, so in the first session:

postgres=# cluster verbose t1 using i1;
psql: INFO:  clustering "public.t1" using index scan on "i1"
psql: INFO:  "t1": found 0 removable, 3000000 nonremovable row versions in 28038 pages
DETAIL:  0 dead row versions cannot be removed yet.
CPU: user: 0.82 s, system: 0.55 s, elapsed: 1.87 s.
CLUSTER
postgres=# 

… and in a second session:

postgres=# select * from pg_stat_progress_cluster;
 pid  | datid | datname  | relid | command |      phase       | cluster_index_relid | heap_tuples_scanned | heap_tuples_written | heap_blks_total | heap_blks_scanned | index_rebuild_count 
------+-------+----------+-------+---------+------------------+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+-----------------+-------------------+---------------------
 1669 | 13586 | postgres | 16384 | CLUSTER | rebuilding index |               16390 |             3000000 |             3000000 |               0 |                 0 |                   2
(1 row)

Nice. And the same is now available when indexes get created:

postgres=# \d pg_stat_progress_create_index 
        View "pg_catalog.pg_stat_progress_create_index"
       Column       |  Type   | Collation | Nullable | Default 
--------------------+---------+-----------+----------+---------

 relid              | oid     |           |          | 
 phase              | text    |           |          |

Working with Batch REST Calls to Business Objects in Visual Builder

Shay Shmeltzer - Wed, 2019-04-03 16:22

In a previous blog post I showed the basics of working with the REST interfaces to manipulate data in business objects in Visual Builder. There is one more technique that I wanted to cover, and that is for executing multiple operations on multiple records and objects with a single REST call - what we refer to as batch operation. See the "Making Batch Requests" section in our doc.

Using this approach can of course improve the performance of your application when you need to manipulate multiple records. For example, if you worked with an editable table and then wanted to save all the changed records with a single REST call - you could construct the required json structure and execute all the updates at once. The important things to watch for are the required Content-Type header application/vnd.oracle.adf.batch+json , the use of a POST operation, and the fact that you access the root URL for your service. Then of course keep an eye on constructing the JSON payload correctly.

See the demo below for an example of performing various CRUD operations in one go.

Nonprofit Turns to NetSuite to Fight Childhood Hunger

Oracle Press Releases - Wed, 2019-04-03 11:10
Press Release
Nonprofit Turns to NetSuite to Fight Childhood Hunger MANA Nutrition Drives Efficiencies and Increases Visibility into Operations with NetSuite

SUITEWORLD 2019, LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Apr 3, 2019

MANA Nutrition, a nonprofit producer of ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF), is using Oracle NetSuite to support its mission to end severe acute malnutrition (SAM) across the globe. With NetSuite, MANA has been able to focus time and resources on the fight to end malnutrition by reducing manufacturing costs, increasing supply chain efficiency and gaining a single view into financial data across its growing organization. 

Founded in 2009, MANA produces 425,000 lifesaving meals of RUTF per day to treat SAM (enough to feed and save 3,500 children in a six-week treatment program). According to UNICEF, SAM continues to result in the loss of 3 million young lives a year across the world and MANA has provided food to almost 3 million children to date. To extend its impact in reducing the cost of RUTF treatment across the market, and support its growth, MANA needed a unified business platform that could automate manufacturing processes, improve supply chain efficiency and increase visibility into financial data. To support these goals and enhance measurement and reporting to its benefactors, MANA selected NetSuite early in its development. 

“Our mission is simple, we’re here to help end malnutrition for children around the world. We are on a never-ending quest to find a better way and are guided by the mindset of ‘if it’s good, let’s make it great,’” said Chris Whitfield, CFO, MANA Nutrition. “NetSuite has been great. It continues to give us ever increasing levels of visibility into our operations and enabled us to dramatically and consistently reduce costs by driving efficiencies across our organization. This has helped us demonstrate our impact to benefactors and allowed us to reallocate funds to create more food and save more lives.”

With NetSuite, MANA has been able to take advantage of accounting, inventory management, manufacturing and sales capabilities on a single platform to improve the efficiency of its manufacturing process and increase the quality of its products. In addition, the powerful analytics and financial management capabilities with NetSuite have helped MANA automate financial reporting, gauge how its performing against budgeted standards and milestones, improve investor relations by increasing transparency into financials and pass stringent audits by international aid organizations.

“Child malnutrition can stunt a child for a lifetime, and MANA is making a huge impact through its own work and its broader impact on the industry,” said David Geilhufe, senior director and social impact leader, Oracle NetSuite. “We’re incredibly proud to work with organizations like MANA which are creating social impact every day. By giving them the technology and support to help expand their mission, we are enabling them to grow and play a small part in making the world a better place.”

NetSuite supports more than 1,300 nonprofits and social enterprises globally. MANA is currently benefitting from Suite Pro Bono as part of the NetSuite Social Impact program, which provides nonprofit and social enterprises with coaching and support from NetSuite employees. MANA was also able to utilize the discounted licensing the NetSuite Social Impact program provides to nonprofits, which has helped MANA lower the prices of RUTF for its international aid customers.

MANA is also participating in the Hackathon 4Good event happening at SuiteWorld where NetSuite developers, partners and customers give their day to help NetSuite nonprofit customers address a complex challenge they are facing.

By consolidating existing systems, automating manual processes and enhancing reporting, elope has been able to stay ahead of increasing competition and changing market demands through real-time visibility into design, manufacturing and distribution processes. In addition, with increased visibility into its inventory, elope has been able to deliver better recommendations to more customers by identifying buying trends during peak times, like Halloween, to ensure a truly personalized service and costume availability.

“A core part of every growth story is gaining the visibility and control that help you focus on the things that drive your business forward,” said Jason Maynard, SVP of Global Field Operations, Oracle NetSuite. “As it has grown from a mall kiosk to one of the industry’s most prominent costume designers, elope has showed that you don’t have to compromise on your vision as your business expands.

DSTv32 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite 12.2 and 12.1

Steven Chan - Wed, 2019-04-03 10:59

The DSTv33 timezone upgrade is now available and certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1. Note that DST patches are cumulative and therefore include all previous Oracle DST updates.

How Does Oracle E-Business Suite Work Across Timezones?

Periodically, many countries or regions change their timezone definitions. In addition, and more frequently, they may switch to or from Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time.

If your Oracle E-Business Suite environment is configured to support doing business across multiple timezones, you need to keep your timezone definition files up-to-date by applying patches as described in this article. This will ensure that the times transactions take place are recorded correctly, and thereby meet applicable business and legal requirements.

Is My Oracle E-Business Suite Environment Affected?

When a country or region changes its timezone definitions or DST rules, your Oracle E-Business Suite environment will require patching if either of the following is true:

  • Your EBS environment is located in the affected country or region.
  • Your EBS environment is located outside the affected country or region, but you conduct business or have customers or suppliers there.

The following are major additions or changes in the DSTv33 timezones definitions compared to the previous release:

  • Most of Chile now ends DST on the first Saturday in April (starting 6-Apr-19) and resumes DST in September.
  • Morocco switches to permanent +01 on 2018-10-27.
  • Volgograd moves from +03 to +04 on 2018-10-28.
  • Fiji ends DST 2019-01-13, not 2019-01-20.
  • Use of "PST" and "PDT" for Philippines time.
What Patches Do I Require?

The following MOS note identifies the various components in your Oracle E-Business Suite environment that may need DST patches:

What if I Do Not Apply the Relevant Patches?

If you do business with a country or region that has changed its timezone definitions, and record a transaction that occurs at the boundary between the “old” and the “new” time, then the transaction may be recorded incorrectly. Specifically, that transaction's timestamp may be out by an hour.

Pet Food Delivery Pioneer Grows 50 Percent Year-On-Year with NetSuite

Pet Food Delivery Pioneer Grows 50 Percent Year-On-Year with NetSuite NetSuite Helps PetShop.co.uk Enter Five New Countries and Scale the First UK Pet Food Subscription Service

SUITEWORLD 2019, LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Apr 3, 2019

PetShop.co.uk, the subscription-based pet supply store, has grown from a family-run business to one of the largest online pet shops in the UK with NetSuite. With NetSuite, PetShop.co.uk has been able to scale its critical business systems as it has rapidly grown in the UK, diversifying its services to include new subscription-based models and expanding internationally into France, Germany, Spain, Portugal and the Nordic region.

Started by Adam Taylor and his now-wife Lexi Taylor in their London home in 2009, PetShop.co.uk comprises an online store as well as the first ever subscription pet food service, Bottomless Bowl. As it has grown by 50 percent each year to become a company that now stocks over half a million pounds’ worth of merchandise and a range of over 10,000 products, PetShop.co.uk has used NetSuite to manage its business and minimize complexity. To build on its success and backed by the recent award of a £400,000 Productivity Grant from the UK Government, PetShop.co.uk has plans for further expansion, including an increased focus on its subscription business and international customer base. 

“In 2010, as we started to scale, we set out to find business software that would support our entrepreneurial spirit and allow us to focus on our growth,” said Adam Taylor, CEO, PetShop.co.uk. “As we have grown, NetSuite has always helped us punch above our weight and stay true to our promise of saving customers’ time when buying pet food and supplies. What I really like though is that NetSuite frees up enough of my time so that I can still personally write all of our customer communications. Being able to focus on delivering such a personal service is so important to us.”

NetSuite has enabled PetShop.co.uk to increase efficiencies and control across financial, supply chain and marketing operations by eliminating manual and time-consuming processes and providing a real-time, consolidated view into key business data. By streamlining order management, invoicing and supply chain operations, NetSuite is helping PetShop.co.uk tap into the rising demand for subscription-based services, a market expected to be worth £1 billion by 2022. In addition, NetSuite’s marketing platform, Bronto, has helped PetShop.co.uk personalize the customer experience and achieve retention rates of up to 80 percent, while NetSuite’s OneWorld functionality enables seamless currency calculations and foreign language translations direct from the platform.

“Like many of our high-growth customers, PetShop.co.uk has achieved remarkable success by offering a new customer experience in a traditional market,” said Nicky Tozer, VP of EMEA, Oracle NetSuite. “We have provided a business platform that can scale with it, giving the company real-time visibility and control even as it expands across international markets. By implementing NetSuite, PetShop.co.uk has been able to react quickly to new business opportunities, while maintaining the personal aspect of customer service for which it has become known.”

Second Meetup SOUG / DOAG /AOUG Region Lake of Constance

Yann Neuhaus - Wed, 2019-04-03 07:37

Tuesday last week I attended the second meeting of SOUG region lake of constance which took place at Robotron Switzerland in Wil SG. Eleven people attended this event, Georg Russ hold a quite interesting presentation about “Hacked Biometric Data”.
He told about how to fake finger prints, iris images, face ids and patterns of hand venes.
After this presentation a general discussion about security and other Oracle related themes took place.

It was a good event and I am looking forward to attend the next one.

Cause for looping sssd

Yann Neuhaus - Wed, 2019-04-03 00:49

In RedHat Enterprise Linux 7, the sssd daemons can connect to active directory servers. Default behaviour is to update DNS entries dynamically.
If a statical DNS entry already exists this can lead to a CPU consuming sssd_nss daemon.
To prevent this behaviour, the dynamic DNS updates should be switched off with this setting in every doman section of config file /etc/sssd/sssd.conf:


dyndns_update = False

After that sssd should be restarted to take this change effect.

Press Release
American Cancer Society Expands its Mission for a Cancer-Free World NetSuite helps nonprofit support rapid growth as it fights cancer on all fronts to save and celebrate lives

SUITEWORLD 2019, LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Apr 2, 2019

The American Cancer Society, a global leader in the fight against cancer, recently launched NetSuite to run its core financial processes so it can focus valuable time and resources on its mission to free the world of cancer. With NetSuite, the American Cancer Society is looking to take advantage of an integrated business platform to support its growth and streamline the management of multiple programs and fundraising efforts across its 900 U.S. offices.

Founded in 1913 by 10 doctors and five laypeople in New York City, the American Cancer Society has grown into a nationwide, community-based health organization with 1.5 million volunteers and now attacks cancer from every angle 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To support its network of volunteers, multiple fundraising efforts, and expanding range of programs, which include everything from critical research and education/awareness campaigns to emotional support and the fight for lifesaving policy changes, the American Cancer Society selected NetSuite to replace its aging and fragmented infrastructure with a single, scalable business platform.

“This year alone there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the U.S.,” said Rob King, CFO, the American Cancer Society. “As we look to grow our impact, NetSuite will support the management of our core financial operations so we are able to focus on helping people get well and stay well, finding cures and fighting back against the disease.”

The American Cancer Society will use NetSuite across its growing network of programs, volunteers and fundraising efforts. NetSuite will also help with the management and tracking of donations and goals. To help support the mission of the organization, NetSuite will host a pledge wall at SuiteWorld19 where attendees can write down their lifestyle promise in the fight against cancer. Attendees are encouraged to share their pledge on social media using the hashtags #AttackingCancer and #SuiteWorld19. For 2,000 pledges, NetSuite will donate $10,000 to the American Cancer Society.

“The American Cancer Society has led the fight against cancer for more than 100 years and the results it has achieved are nothing short of amazing,” said Evan Goldberg, EVP, Oracle NetSuite. “We are always excited when we can help nonprofits focus their time and resources on making the world a better place and are proud to be helping the American Cancer Society manage its growing network of programs, volunteers and fundraising efforts.”

Groundbreaking Comedy Club Puts NetSuite Center Stage

Oracle Press Releases - Tue, 2019-04-02 11:09
Press Release
Groundbreaking Comedy Club Puts NetSuite Center Stage NetSuite Helps The Second City Continue Its Comedy Revolution with the Launch of New Services

SUITEWORLD 2019, LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Apr 2, 2019

Groundbreaking comedy theater and improvisation club The Second City is using Oracle NetSuite to bring the power of comedy to the world. With NetSuite, The Second City has been able to take advantage of an integrated business platform to support its rapid growth and the addition of new comedy and improvisation services, which include new theaters, program offerings and an expanded training center.

Since opening its doors in 1959, The Second City has grown from a small cabaret theater in Chicago to become one of the most influential and prolific comedy empires in the world, fostering superstars including Jason Sudeikis, Steve Carell, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert. To continue its comedy revolution, The Second City has launched a number of new initiatives including Second City Works, the B2B arm which uses the same methods to create professional development, content, and events that drive personal growth and organizational improvement. NetSuite has helped The Second City manage its expanding list of services as it brings comedy and improvisation to nearly 1 million people a year worldwide.

“People are drawn to The Second City because of our open-mindedness and passion for keeping the art of comedy alive,” said David Quinn, CFO, The Second City. “The core of what we do is improvisation and to ensure we can always focus on our art, we wanted a business platform that would allow us to grow without adding complexity to our business and NetSuite has been a perfect fit. The insights we get from NetSuite have helped us make better business decisions as we diversify our business and open our doors to more customers.”

With NetSuite, The Second City has been able to achieve a more real-time, consolidated view into its core business processes by consolidating previously disparate systems that were managing its multiple revenue streams and three offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. NetSuite has also helped The Second City increase efficiencies and rapidly expand its range of services by eliminating previously manual and time-consuming tasks. This has enabled The Second City to focus on making the world a funnier place as it opens several new facilities to accommodate growing interest, including The Second City Training Center expansion, the Harold Ramis Film School, the first ever film school dedicated to comedy, and a full-service bar and restaurant.

“The Second City has fostered generations of superstars and continues to find new ways to innovate in the comedy and improv community,” said Evan Goldberg, EVP, Oracle NetSuite. “Its business is a great example of how you can carve out an entirely new approach and then grow that idea into a global empire by adding new services. With NetSuite, The Second City can focus on what will continue to get more artists and audience members in the door while we help ensure its business runs smoothly.”

Huge Pages Speeds Startup of Web Servers

Bobby Durrett's DBA Blog - Tue, 2019-04-02 10:50

We had issues deploying changes to a large web farm a few weeks back. We had automated the startup of the 25 web servers using a DevOps tool but when it tried to bring them all up at once it took forever and the web servers got timeout errors. We resolved this by putting in huge pages on the metadata database.

I mentioned the unexpectedly large impact of huge pages on login time in a previous post. But, we had not realized that a small metadata database with a 5 gigabyte SGA would need huge pages. I guess I should mention that this is 11.2.0.3 Oracle on Linux. The web farm has 25 servers with 25 database connections each. I think the number of connections from each server should be 5 or less but I have not convinced others to reduce the number. If you have a metadata database with 4 cores and 625 connections from 25 web servers, the web servers cannot use all of those connections. A 4-core database server can only process 10 or 20 SQL statements at once if they are I/O centric. If they are all CPU you are looking at 4 concurrent active SQL statements. If you kick off 625 SQL statements at once the load will go through the roof and everything will timeout. I thought about putting in shared servers on the metadata database to force the 625 sessions to funnel through 12 shared servers so the database server would not be overwhelmed should all 625 connections choose to run at once. But the only problem we had was with logins. All 625 were logging in at the same time when the web farm was started by our DevOps tool. Huge pages resolved this issue by making the login time 10-20 times faster.

The database was in a 16 gigabyte Linux VM with 4 cores and a 5 gigabyte SGA. Without huge pages each login took about 2.5 seconds. With it the logins took about .15 seconds. Without huge pages the load on the database server went over 100 when all 625 sessions started at once. With huge pages the load never exceeded 1. Without huge pages the web farm never came up cleanly and with it the farm came up quickly without error. So, if you have a Linux VM with several gigabytes in your SGA you might want to use huge pages.
