Mimer SQL on Solaris

Mimer SQL Engine is available for the Sun Solaris operating system - a flavor of UNIX.

Mimer SQL Engine is available for Solaris 7 (or later), running on UltraSPARC processors based on SPARC architecture version 9 (or later). This architecture supports fast multithread synchronization much better than earlier SPARC architectures did.

Mimer SQL Engine is enabled for Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) and the implementation uses POSIX threads and asynchronous I/O provided by Solaris 7.

To optimize performance when running Mimer SQL Engine on Solaris, we recommend that you place frequently accessed Mimer SQL databank files, on character devices, also known as raw devices. By using a raw device, the file system layer is avoided and I/O operations are performed directly to the disk. Take extra care to ensure that no part of the regular file system is overlapped by a raw device partition dedicated for databank file use.

JDBC- and ODBC drivers are included in the base distribution for Mimer SQL on Solaris.

To locate the Mimer SQL man pages on some Solaris systems, use the "man -F" command.

When databanks are located on raw device files, you must correct the problem referenced as Bug ID 4295776, with synopsis "kaio can hang in aiosuspend()". To do this, you must install revision 11 of the "Kernel Jumbo Patch", with Patch ID 106541. You can get the patch and related information from Sun Microsystems Inc.

To be able to compile most of the example programs supplied with the Mimer SQL distribution, you need an ANSI/C compatible compiler.
