Pinned topic Infosphere Warehouse 10.1.0.2 upgrade experience ?

‏2013-04-25T19:05:37Z |

Hello,

our production environment currently runs with ISW 9.7.2 with 2 WAS profiles (WAS RHEL 5.9, DB2 9.8 RHEL 5.9) 

We intend to upgrade to 10.1 so we tested the new one with liberty profile 10.1.0.2 - awesome (no WAS) !

Installation ok - migration ok up to the ressources (some manually work). Also the 2 "profiles" with the new liberty configuration work.

Admin Console Start within 10 sec !!!

It woks fine in test environment !

 

But some questions:

*) Installation of new control DB requires local DB server? we use a distributed environment  - not really a problem just use a restore of an existing on the DB server

*) Presentation of Admin Console with Internet Explorer 9 is not really nice (scroll bars, flicker of text boxes, ...) with Firefox it's ok. Any hints or recommendations?

*) Do you have any performance benchmarks 10.1.0.2 vs. 9.7.2 (our processes are triggered via OPC/TWS and whcommand)

*) What's about stability - Is 10.1.0.2 stable enough for production ?

*) the logfile prefix which was configurable within 9.1 is since 9.2 still automatically gererated. (have to override it after each deployment) any possibility within admin console ?

*) other hints/tips ?

Would be glad to hear about your experiences...

Best regards

agruber

    ‏2013-05-07T03:26:33Z  

     

    Thank you for trying 10.1.0.2! My comments are as follows. 

     

    *) Installation of new control DB requires local DB server? we use a distributed environment  - not really a problem just use a restore of an existing on the DB server

    Yes, you cannot create a new control DB on a remote server directly. You can create one by yourself and then reuse it.

     

    *) Presentation of Admin Console with Internet Explorer 9 is not really nice (scroll bars, flicker of text boxes, ...) with Firefox it's ok. Any hints or recommendations?

    IE 9 is not same as Firefox or Chrome for the look and feel, but the functions should be working.

     

    *) Do you have any performance benchmarks 10.1.0.2 vs. 9.7.2 (our processes are triggered via OPC/TWS and whcommand)

    Generally they are quite close. Most changes on 10.1.0.2 from 9.7.2 are UI look and WLP support.

     

    *) What's about stability - Is 10.1.0.2 stable enough for production ?

    Yes, sure.

     

    *) the logfile prefix which was configurable within 9.1 is since 9.2 still automatically gererated. (have to override it after each deployment) any possibility within admin console ?

    Can you describe your issue in more details? We can consider improvement in future releases.

    Hello,

    thanks for your reply.

    generally 10.1.0.2 works fine !!!

    • concerning the log prefix with 9.1 it was possible to change the log prefix stored in DB SQWCTRL.SQWMETA_V3.PROCESSES.LOGPREFIX
    • there are some errors within  dsserver.log:

    [err] Unknown OSGi URL: /IFWHLUW/ibmdita.css
    [err] Unknown OSGi URL: /dojoroot/convergence/idx/resources/claro_idx.css
    [err] Unknown OSGi URL: /wtidojo-lib/bluesky/dojox/custom/images/icons_bluesky.png
    [err] Unknown OSGi URL: /dojoroot/convergence/idx/resources/claro_idx.css

    • is the UI designed to display only 10 items whithin the tabs in the Admin console? Even if I switch to 25 or 50 items the list only expands by a scroll bar. Would be nice if the list expands and show more items without scrolling.

    Can you please check the error and the user interface issue?

    Hi agruber:

     

    pls see my comments with zxning:

    • concerning the log prefix with 9.1 it was possible to change the log prefix stored in DB SQWCTRL.SQWMETA_V3.PROCESSES.LOGPREFIX

                            zxning: what is your problem here? can you describe in more details?

                [err] Unknown OSGi URL: /dojoroot/convergence/idx/resources/claro_idx.css

                zxning: these errors could be omitted, unless you find any errors in the Web UI functions.

    • is the UI designed to display only 10 items whithin the tabs in the Admin console? Even if I switch to 25 or 50 items the list only expands by a scroll bar. Would be nice if the list expands and show more items without scrolling.

                              zxning: This is as designed. If to expands the list without scrolling, the screen cannot display so many items if user choose the number 50.

    Hi,

    • SQWCTRL.SQWMETA_V3.PROCESSES.LOGPREFIX

    zxning: what is your problem here? can you describe in more details?

     

    It was possible to change the prefix within the adminconsole, so we defined the prefixes with "ETL_". Since 9.5 its not possible to

    change this value within the admin console. When you deploy or change an application the prefix is set to the application name - but it's not really a problem

    • Admin Console UI

    zxning: This is as designed. If to expands the list without scrolling, the screen cannot display so many items if user choose the number 50.

     

    Yes I understand but there is much space left within the browser window as you can see attached - sure it depends on the screen resolution. Maybe our presentation of the UI differs from the designed one (based on the errors whithin the dsserver.log - missing style sheets etc.)?
