  • Publication number: 20220292099
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual table schemas. A virtual table schema includes a logical pointer that is used to target a table that includes data and is defined according to the virtual table schema. Values assigned to the logical pointer can be used to target tables at different locations, such as in-memory storage or in dynamic storage of a database management system. The dynamic storage includes an in-memory buffer cache and persistent storage. The logical pointer can be updated to point to the in-memory storage or the dynamic storage, including based on use statistics. Similarly, a table having data for the virtual table can be transitioned between the in-memory buffer cache and the persistent storage, including based on use statistics for the virtual table. A value for the logical pointer can be updated when the table is transferred between the in-memory buffer cache and the dynamic storage.

  • Publication number: 20220197922
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual table schemas. A virtual table schema includes a logical pointer that is used to target a table that includes data and is defined according to the virtual table schema. Values assigned to the logical pointer can be used to target tables at different locations, such as in a federated database system or in a cache of a database management system of a central computing system. When data associated with the virtual table is requested, or prior to receiving the request, the data can be stored in a table in the cache. The logical pointer can be updated to reference the cache. If the cache is full, the table can be removed from the cache, and the logical pointer can be updated to reference a table at the federated database system.

  • Publication number: 20210089552
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual table schemas. A virtual table schema includes a logical pointer that is used to target a table that includes data and is defined according to the virtual table schema. Values assigned to the logical pointer can be used to target tables at different locations, such as tables located in a remote database system, replica tables containing data replicated from a table in a remote database system, or cached table data. Replica tables targeted by a logical pointer of a virtual table schema can have various locations, such as being located in main memory of a database system, being located in a dynamic storage system, or being located in a data lake. Replica tables can be transferred between locations based on various criteria.

  • Patent number: 7040233
    Abstract: A method and a device for controlling drive units in a printing machine are disclosed. During continuous production, and in anticipation of a foreseeable disruption, one or more measuring values that are suitable for characterizing the disruption, are determined. The measuring values are used to estimate the expected variations caused by the disruptions in the variables affecting the printing process. The variables are preregulated or precontrolled directly before the start of the disruption or during the disruption.
