Solaris, PTSocketSelector, and sun.nio.ch.PollSelectorProvider…Oh My!

Howdy all.  After a long hiatus I’m back to blog your socks off with some technical minutiae that will save a few of you lots of headaches, and help the rest of you get a good night’s sleep.   Long Story Short (i.e. “Just the useful info, please”)  There’s a bug in the JDK that

Remotely Reboot Windows Servers

󰀄

You may never need this one, but when and if you do, you’ll be glad you’ve got this tip in your back pocket.  No doubt, you never actually sit in front of a console for your AquaLogic Servers; if you’re on Windows, you’re using Windows Remote Desktop. Occasionally, you need to reboot those servers, and

Performance Tuning Tips

For those of you unaware, Dev2Dev is meeting a grisly fate:  it won’t be with us much longer (apparently all content except for the blogs up there will be migrated to the Oracle Mother Ship).  No doubt our friends at Oracle will come up with an alternative way for employees to speak their minds, but

Windows Services Tips

󰀄

If you’ve got a Windows ALUI portal, you know the procedure for restarting services: Remote Desktop to the affected system, open the Service Control Manager, and restart.

Keep the time on your portal servers synch’ed

We mentioned some problems with the WS Server after database restarts a little while ago, and have another tip for you from our friends Sri Potharaju and Omoruyi Evbuoma, who we’ve worked with on a joint project. For those of you that develop using the PRC, you no doubt have used the login token sent

Turn off Application Pool Recycling and Idle Timeout (IIS6)

󰀄

IIS6 has a new feature called Application Pool Recycling. By default, this feature uses overlapped recycling, which means the worker process that is to be shut down is kept running until after a new worker process is started. This can cause problems with the portal, because as one instance is brought up it initializes temp

Performance Tuning your Windows Server

󰀄

Occasionally servers aren’t configured optimally for portal processes. Some of the easier things to configure on the server for optimal performance are: Set the /3GB switch in boot.ini. This allows the portal to use more memory. See the Installation Prerequisites Guide for instructions. Disable unnecessary services like the “Indexing Service” on the servers. This service
