YottaDB r1.10 is a major release that adds support for Linux on ARM CPUs. Enhancements in this release include reverse $query() - $query(,-1) - as well as optimizations for certain $order() use cases. The ydbinstall.sh script automatically downloads and installs the current YottaDB release. As always, there as other enhancements and fixes, as noted below.
We would like to acknowledge and thank Steve Johnson (@sljohnson1) and Sam Habiel (@shabiel) for making the ARM port possible.
A platform is a combination of a CPU architecture and an operating system. A platform is Supported, Supportable, or Unsupported. Supported means that we have the platform in our development environment and test each release on that platform. Supportable means that although we do not necessarily have such a platform in our environment, we have no reason to believe that the software will not run on it. All others are Unsupported.
Supported OS Version(s)
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS; Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4
Note that there are separate binary distributions for Ubuntu and Red Hat, owing to differences in library versions of those distributions.
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B; BeagleBone Black Wireless
Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.1; Stretch IoT (non GUI)
While YottaDB r1.10 is Supportable on other ARMv7-A CPUs, owing to variations in the implementations of ARM microarchitectures, we recommend that you ensure the software runs correctly before committing to any specific hardware other than those Supported. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a specific combination of OS and CPU microarchitecture to be Supported.
Recent releases of major GNU/Linux distributions with contemporary kernels, glibc and ncurses are Supportable. Running on Arch Linux requires the ncurses5-compat-libs package to be installed.
The simplest way to install the current release of YottaDB for your platform is the ydbinstall.sh script.
Download it, make the file executable, and execute it:
sudo ./ydbinstall.sh downloads and installs the current YottaDB release with a reasonable set of defaults.
sudo ./ydbinstall.sh --utf8 default downloads and installs the current YottaDB release with UTF-8 support, using the default ICU version on the operating system.
./ydbinstall.sh --help prints a list of command line options.
sudo ./ydbinstall.sh --verbose outputs information as it executes, for troubleshooting purposes (for example if Internet access is stalled by a proxy server, the script will print the wget command it is trying to execute and hang).
You can also download the YottaDB binary distribution tarball for your platform from the release notes for the latest release, unpack it, change to the directory with the unpacked files, and (a) run the ydbinstall therein or (b) install the historical way per the instructions for installing GT.M in the Installation Procedure section of Chapter 2 (Installing GT.M) in the GT.M Administration and Operations Guide.
We strongly recommend that you install YottaDB r1.10 in a newly created directory, different from those of YottaDB r1.00 and any GT.M versions you may have installed on the system.
Removing an installed YottaDB release
Assuming $gtm_dist points to the directory where YottaDB is installed:
Cleanly shut down all application processes using that release.
This is an existing message with updated text. The Action remains unchanged.
OFRZAUTOREL, Online Freeze automatically released for database file aaaa
Operator log Warning: A process needed to modify the database file aaaa, which had an Online Freeze, but with AutoRelease selected. The process continued normally, modifying the file.
Action: Discard any database copy or snapshot made after the Online Freeze, as its contents are suspect. Perform a MUPIP FREEZE -OFF to clean up the prior Online Freeze. If the AutoRelease behavior is not desired, try again with MUPIP FREEZE -ON -ONLINE -NOAUTORELEASE. If the cause of the AutoRelease is unclear, report this and the accompanying ERRCALL message to your YottaDB support channel.
QUERY2, Invalid second argument to $QUERY. Must be -1 or 1
Run Time Error: This indicates that the second argument to a $QUERY function was not a 1 or -1, which are the only permitted values.
Action: Modify the application code to provide a correct value.
