Database Modeling and Design: Logical Design, 4th Edition (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems)

Database structures and database layout know-how have passed through major evolution lately. The relational facts version and relational database platforms dominate company functions; in flip, they're prolonged by way of different applied sciences like facts warehousing, OLAP, and knowledge mining. How do you version and layout your database software in attention of recent know-how or new enterprise wishes?

Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach (6th Edition)

&>Computer Networking maintains with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and alertness programming interfaces (the most sensible layer), encouraging a hands-on event with protocols and networking innovations, sooner than operating down the protocol stack to extra summary layers. This publication has turn into the dominant ebook for this path a result of authors’ reputations, the precision of rationalization, the standard of the paintings application, and the price in their personal supplementations.

Be aware that isn't the similar as a partition in computing device terminology. each one disk includes a few kind of partition desk, known as a VTOC (Volume desk Of Contents) in SVR4 terminology, which describes the place the slices commence and what their dimension is. every one slice may perhaps then be used to shop bootstrap info, a filesystem, switch house, or be left as a uncooked partition for database entry or different use. Disks will be controlled utilizing a couple of utilities. for instance, on Solaris and lots of SVR4 derivatives, the prtvtoc and fmthard utilities can be utilized to edit the VTOC to divide the disk right into a variety of slices. while there are various disks, this hand modifying of disk walls turns into tedious and intensely errors services. for instance, this is the output of operating the prtvtoc command on a root disk on Solaris: # prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 * /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 partition map Filesystem-Based strategies * * Dimensions: * 512 bytes/sector * a hundred thirty five sectors/track * sixteen tracks/cylinder * 2160 sectors/cylinder * 3882 cylinders * 3880 obtainable cylinders * * Flags: * 1: unmountable * 10: read-only * * First * Partition Tag Flags area zero 2 00 zero 1 three 01 788400 2 five 00 zero four zero 00 1838160 6 four 00 6032880 region count number 788400 1049760 8380800 4194720 2347920 final zone 788399 1838159 8380799 6032879 8380799 Mount Dir / /usr /opt The partition tag is used to spot every one slice such that c0t0d0s0 is the slice that holds the foundation filesystem, c0t0d0s4 is the slice that holds the /usr filesystem, and so forth. the subsequent instance indicates partitioning of an IDE-based, root Linux disk. even though the naming scheme differs, the strategies are just like these proven formerly. # fdisk /dev/hda Command (m for help): p Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, sixty three sectors, 2584 cylinders devices = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes gadget /dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 /dev/hda3 /dev/hda4 /dev/hda5 /dev/hda6 Boot * begin 1 556 four 649 1204 649 finish three 630 12 2584 2584 1203 Blocks 22648+ 567000 68040 14636160 10440328+ 4195737 identity eighty three 6 eighty two f b eighty three procedure Linux FAT16 Linux switch Win95 Ext'd (LBA) Win95 FAT32 Linux Logical quantity managers supply a far more straightforward technique to deal with disks and create new slices (called logical volumes). the quantity supervisor takes possession of the disks and offers out area as asked. Volumes may be uncomplicated, within which case the quantity easily feels like a simple uncooked disk slice, or they are often reflected or striped. for instance, the next command can be utilized with the VERITAS quantity supervisor, VxVM, to create a brand new basic quantity: # vxassist make myvol 10g # vxprint myvol 89 90 UNIX Filesystems—Evolution, layout, and Implementation Disk workforce: rootdg TY v pl sd sd sd identify myvol myvol-01 disk12-01 disk02-01 disk03-01 ASSOC fsgen myvol myvol-01 myvol-01 myvol-01 KSTATE ENABLED ENABLED ENABLED ENABLED ENABLED size 20971520 20973600 8378640 8378640 4216320 PLOFFS country energetic lively zero 8378640 16757280 - VxVM created the hot quantity, referred to as myvol, from current loose area. thus, the 1GB quantity used to be made from 3 separate, contiguous chunks of disk house that jointly could be accessed like a unmarried uncooked partition.
