For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
Without knowing what column EventDate is (we can guess, but that's dangerous!) we can't tell you.
However, if EventDate is a DATETIME type, how about
CAST(EventDate ASDATE) = CAST('NOW'ASDATE)
(Disclaimer - I don't know Firebird so using 'NOW' to get current date/time seems a bit weird - converting a string literal NOW to date time? I'd be more used to CAST(NOW() AS DATE) or CAST(NOW AS DATE) ... )
createtable PendingQueue (
cnstraint pk_pending_id nonclusteredprimarykey(id));
createclusteredindex cdxPendingQueue on PendingQueue (DueTime);
insertinto PendingQueue (DueTime, Payload)
values (@dueTime, @payload);
@batchsizeint = 100,
@retrysecondsint = 600assetnocounton;
set@now = getutcdate();
with cte as (
from PendingQueue with (rowlock, readpast)
where DueTime < @noworderby DueTime)
set DueTime = dateadd(seconds, @retryseconds, DueTime)
output deleted.Payload, deleted.id;
Specially see this line set DueTime = dateadd(seconds, @retryseconds, DueTime)
How this line instruct sql server to retry the update data again after 10 minute if fail to update data first time. this is not clear to me. please some one explain if you understand properly. thanks
I have some confusion about lock (ROWLOCK ,UPDLock AND xlock). i want to know the difference among these locks. where to use UPDLock, when to use RowLock and when Xlock with a example for better clarification.
BEGINTRANSACTIONSELECT @ID=RowID FROM MyTable WITH (ROWLOCK, XLOCK, HOLDLOCK) WHERE ID=6822
In the above sql rowlock and XLOCK both use as a result from other session records 6822 could not be read or modify. XLOCK alone is capable to lock the rows....so why one should use ROWLOCK & XLOCK together ?
if i use only xlock & HOLDLOCK then it will not serve the purpose ?
2) Tell me with example what is the difference between ROWLOCK & UPDLOCK ?
ROWLOCK prevent other session to modify data and UPDLOCK does the same thing. so what is the difference
between ROWLOCK & UPDLOCK ?
Please anyone explain these difference with example as a result at my end i can run the example code and understand.
I was looking for an efficient way to store "States" of entities in the DB. For example I had OrderStatus and that can be mapped to a table called Status and have the ID and the status Name be present in a join. If however I wanted to add more statuses for other Entity tables I don't want to have to create a new table for every Entity, is there a way to store all these statuses in one table? Thanks
I , the last project I was asked to advise on was managed by a PM who was adamant that this was the "modern" way to go (I was accused of being an old fart who was stuck in the 90's). Started off as a 2 column table and the last I saw of it was a 5 column, 2 table structure.
Luckily I walked away from anything to do with the project.

I need help resetting the values of each users in a row at once with random numbers by either button click or loading a page.
Just like a reset page or button to assign random numbers to each users without repeating at once.
I need a real-time database for inserting at least 500fields per second. (I have been selected TimeScaleDB (Postgresql Extension) for my purpose, currently). So, the matrix of the table will be 500(Fields)x86400(Rows).
This means that for a 500 double-precision field it will be around 500*8bytes=4000bytes which for 86400rows it will be 345,600,000bytes (345.6M).
I know a software which it is recording the same structure of data and the final daily volume of its database is only 84M~85M. Its Extension is *.tag so, i think it is a DataFlex database. It is not a free database and i also never used it.
1- Which free database is the best to use for real-time data storing and querying (at the moment of storing) based on your experience or knowledge?
2- Is there any database to have such a volume or even less for this size of data?
Thank you for your Help.
