Actian PSQL v13

PSQL v13 is the latest DBMS product offering. This release builds upon the powerful database functions of previous PSQL versions.

Client Reporting Engine

The new reporting engine provides a way to offload report workloads to a separate machine. The 64-bit Client Reporting Engine combines features from the relational engine and client cache engine to enable offloading SQL reporting jobs to reduce the impact on the server engine. The Client Reporting Engine is available as a separate install and it does not require a different license key.

New Btrieve API

PSQL v13 has introduced a new Btrieve interface for C and C++ developers. The Btrieve 2 API offers a simplified, more intuitive alternative for sending the full set of Btrieve calls to the database engine. PSQL developers can make use of the performance and flexibility of the original Btrieve API. The SDK also comes with SWIG (Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator) files for Perl, PHP, and Python, enabling developers familiar with those languages to access Btrieve via the C and C++ libraries. To learn more, see Getting Started with the Btrieve C++ and C API.

Cache Management

PSQL v13 provdes the butil utility with two new command options:

- cache, which preloads pages for a file into cache, returning when either the file is fully cached or the ache is full.

- purge, which flushes all unneeded cached pages or a file. It returns immediaely if the file has open handles.

These two commands are complementary. Their actions apply only to the server engine cache rather than to the cache of any client or reporting engine..

What's new in Actian PSQL v13?

PSQL v13 is the ideal database management system for Elliott Business Software users.
