Toolrunner: More Administrative Tools

Some of the traditional Objy/DB Admin tools now use a new mechanism of execution known as tool tunner. You can find the change in tool name and tool options below. All tools now require the –bootFile flag with the bootFilePath. The following are a subset of the Objectivity DB Admin tools. More Administrative tools have been added to the tool runner interface which are listed in a separate table after the Tool Runner table.

Here are the list of tools using tool runner:
ooattachdb
oochange
oochangedb
oocheckams
oocheckls
oocleanup
ooconvertformat
oocopydb
oocopyfd
oodeletefd
oodumpcatalog
ooexportfd
ooinstallfd
oolicense
oolistwait
oolockmon
oonewfd
ooschemadump
ooschemaupgrade

Managing a Federated Database’s License

The license file is used to access the federated database and must always be up-to-date. If you received a new license from a recent purchase, or you’re replacing an expired license with a new one, the federated database must be updated with the new license information, otherwise, it will use the old license and cause an error. Note: These steps for managing a Federated Database’s License are the same for both Objectivity/DB and InfiniteGraph. Setting up a License File 1. Create a new default license file: a. Check whether a file called oolicense.txt already exists in your installation directory. If so, rename that file. b. Save your new license as a text file called oolicense.txt in your installation directory . Updating a Federated Database’s License Run oolicense with either the -licensefile or -fromdefault option, and the bootFilePath. Example: oolicense -licensefile C:\Program Files\Objectivity 10.2\oolicense.txt C:\Users\johndoe\Desktop\RunApp\app.boot Verifying a Federated Database’s License To display a federated database’s license, run oolicense with the bootFilePath and no other options. Example: oolicense C:\Users\johndoe\Desktop\RunApp\app.boot You can verify the version of the license you are using and when it expires.   To view the full documentation, you may access the following link: Administration...

InfiniteGraph Begs to Differ

Curious about graph database technologies but unsure of the differences between various graph databases available today? You are not the only one! Earlier this year, we did our best to help consumers interested in graph technologies by developing the publicly editable Graph Database Features Comparison chart located on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_database. Although we hope that this chart has helped to shed some light on the different graph databases available today, it is evident there is still some confusion. So in light of trying to help people understand how InfiniteGraph differs to other solutions, we have put together a list of a few of our key differentiators: InfiniteGraph is a commercial product with a linear development path that is predictable.  We offer enterprise standard quality of service and support in addition to supporting our free trial download with a wiki, Google user-group and support email. Objectivity, Inc. has been in the NOSQL database space since our initial Objectivity/DB release in 1990. Although graph database technology is fairly new, Objectivity’s InfiniteGraph has been built on a kernel of Objectivity/DB, a proven, distributed and scalable technology that has been available for almost 25yrs and was part of the initial petabyte database back in 2000. As far as we know, no other graph database solution available has been tested to scale to the same extent in a distributed environment. When it comes to Big Data, you want to be sure you have a solution that can scale. InfiniteGraph is able to store trillions of objects in a distributed environment and can co-exist with your existing architecture. Understand your data better through schema. InfiniteGraph takes advantage of...
