Does this sound familiar?
You know you have Big Data. You don't know exactly what's in it and you know it is spread around a bunch of different repositories. In fact, your data problem is so big, you don't know where to start.
So what do you do?
If you are attending Information on Demand next week, register for IBD-2313A: Where is My Big Data? A Hands On Lab with IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer on Tue Nov 5 ( 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ).
In this session, you will discover how IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer can help you make sense of your data. To help you explore what you have and what to do with it, IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer comes with many different connectors to find your data wherever it exists inside the enterprise. This hands on lab will teach you the basics of integrating IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer into your existing infrastructure so you can explore your data quickly and securely. We will explore data sourced from file systems, IBM DB2, Microsoft SharePoint, and IBM Lotus Domino. This lab will give you what you need to start exploring your Big Data.
Session speakers include our own support expert Mike Pointer, Manager of Technical Support for Data Explorer, and Joseph Kramer, Data Explorer Software Engineer.

Next Friday we'll be packing up for IOD... but this Friday we're blogging about the demos we will have available at the IBM Software Subscription & Support Hub, booth #432.
These demos aren't just any demos. They are designed to provide quick and concise answers to your common questions. We've called them the S&S Three-Minute Demos! Simply stop by booth #432 and tell us your demo (or demos) of choice.
Without further ado, here are the demos:
Are you new to IBM Support?
Are you being smart about online support tools and resources?
Are you accessing new releases, fixes, and upgrades?

The procedure to submit feature request for InfoSphere Data Explorer (was Vivisimo Velocity) is change. Within the new procedure, not only Support, but customers can also submit the feature request to our product.
To customers who are new to these procedure, following is the steps:
Once you create your feature request, you will see a url that you can share with others. You should definitely bookmark and share this url. Apparently the feature request will be ranked more highly if it receives lots of visits and comments, etc.

You may have noticed that along with the expected db2sysc and other processes there is a process called db2fmp that is not running under the same ID as the other DB2 processes.
The db2fmp process primarily runs external stored procedures and functions, collectively referred to as routines. DB2 LUW has two primary types of routines referred to as SQL and external. SQL routines are created within DB2 and consist of compiled SQL/PL. External routines, are applications created in a common programming language such as C or Java.
When an external routine is executing it is occupying either a thread in a db2fmp or the entire process. The db2fmp is isolated from DB2's database and other processing, so that these applications will not effect DB2 processing as they run.
If a db2fmp process or thread fails an error is logged, the remaining process or threads are cleaned up when processing completes. A new process or thread is created the next time it is needed. The db2fmp runs under a different user ID than the rest of DB2 called the fenced user ID, so the db2fmp operations are not associated with DB2 at the OS level. For these reasons a db2fmp failure rarely leads to a database issue and database processing continues as usual even after a db2fmp fails.

How to restore critical administrative files with onbar utility?
It is already known to us that onbar backs up some critical administrative files during storage space backup. These critical files are as follows:
There may be a situation when you need to restore one of these files, for example: replace disks, restore to a second computer system (imported restore) etc. However, previously there was no easy way to restore these files from onbar backup. You need to depend on the Informix Technical Support to perform this operation.
Starting with Informix vesion 12.10.xC2, you can restore the critical files that you backed up with onbar utility. Onbar cold restore has an option now to restore these files or you can only restore these file without perform the storate space restore.
Use 'onbar -r -cf yes' to restore critical file during cold restore. Alternatively, you can use 'onbar -r -cf only' to extract critical files while Informix server is offline.
