can we append..

Post by chakravarth » Sun, 25 Mar 2001 22:30:06



hi everyone..

its informix 7.3 on sco unix 5.0.5..

the logical logs files on my system are configured to be 16 MB.

when i take explicitly  the logical logfile back up on a 4 GB tape using
ontape -a command it occupies some (16MB +extra) space wrinting the header
and trailer of the log file..wasting a lot of space on the tape..

is it possible to append another logfile to the same tape using ontape -a
command..

cheers..
bye..

Most sites use the ontape -c command to back up there logical logs....

This keeps the tape device open and appends the logical logs to the tape
until
the tape fill's up. Then switch tapes....

1. MDX : Canned Report or OLAP

Here is the requirement spec for a report about various
values(items below) for different projects.

item#1 item#2 item#5For2001 item#5For2002 item#6For2001 ...

Here item#1 and 2 are measured in general for the entire
lifecyle of the project, item#5 & item6 is being reported
yearwise. Can this kinda of data be stored in a single
cube? If Yes then what will be the MDX query to fetch the
data in above format.

Thanks,

Ashu
