PBXT at the OpenSQL Camp hosted by the FrOSCon 2009

Vladimir will be giving a presentation on PBXT at the FrOSCon 2009 in St. Augustin, near Bonn in Germany tomorrow:

PBXT: Technology trends that affect your Database
Room: C120/OpenSQLCamp
Time: 22 Aug 2009, 18:15 - 18:45

The talks is packed with interesting information about how the design of PBXT handles the major technological challenges of the future, including multiple cores, lots of RAM and solid state drives.

If you are in the area, check it out! :)

Will you post any content on line that described the latest and greatest in PBXT?

Hi Mark,

Most of the recent work on PBXT has involved improving disk bound performance.

For example, I have just finished multi-threaded flushing. Much like you suggested quite a while ago. A lot of work has also been done on handling low cache situations. I have also removed all critical locking when flushing indices.

Most of this stuff is still being tested but, of course, it is all public.

The most recent changes are in a "staging" branch:


So you can try it out if you like. :)
