The line in your netstat report shows that the database is only listening on localhost:5432 (127.0.0.1) for incoming tcp connections. Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:5432 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 3561/postgres So it can only accept local tcp connections regardless of what ...

Ubuntu or Debian can run multiple instances of PostgreSQL and provide a specific way to autostart/stop/start each cluster. There should be a file named start.conf inside /etc/postgresql/9.2/main (or more generally /etc/postgresql/<version>/<clustername>) with these self-explanatory contents: # Automatic startup configuration # auto: automatically ...

According to the MySQL Documentation, the InnoDB Buffer Pool is set to 128MB by default in MySQL 5.5. You can show how much of the InnoDB Buffer Pool is in use and reserved as follows: SELECT BufferPoolUsed BytesUsed, (BufferPoolUsed / power(1024,1)) UsedKB, (BufferPoolUsed / power(1024,2)) UsedMB, (BufferPoolUsed / power(1024,3)) UsedGB, ...

Are you running from the 10gen repository or from the default Debian/Ubuntu repo? I recommend using the official 10gen repository. Check this link out - [10gen MongoDB How-To Install on Ubuntu:] http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/. It is best to uninstall the previous mongodb installation prior to this change, which will also ...

This part is unusual: ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe/ This needs to be char-by-char identical every time. I see it ends with a slash here, which is non-standard, and I suspect that you've added it by mistake. Adding a slash will result in "ORACLE not available" in so-called bequeath sqlplus, I've just experimented on my system. Try again ...

You are on Ubuntu and obviously have Martin Pitt's pg_wrapper installed (judging from pg_ctlcluster) that is provided by the package postgresql-common and comes with the standard Debian packages. I use the same on Debian. On a Linux system, run which in the shell to see which executable is actually picked: postgres@db:~$ which pg_dump /usr/bin/pg_dump ...

Type: lsnrctl start On your Unix box. That starts the listener. If you still can't connect after that it's either a firewall issue or the listener isn't configured.

Memory usage in linux in general and for Postgres in particular is a pretty complex subject, a good starting point is Bruce Momjians blog covering the subject and the usage of smem. It is well worth following the links in Chris Seibenmanns blog on the subject.

perhaps you mean listing users and their privileges for a database - I can't quite tell from the question: postgres=> \du List of roles Role name | Attributes | Member of -----------------+--------------+------------------------------------------------ dba | Create role | ...

All you should need is: listen_addresses = '*' and then to modify pg_hba.conf to permit connections from the desired source. This is stated in the comments on the (very old) article you were reading. Try using the main PostgreSQL documentation, or up to date tutorials, in future. See: Connection and authentication settings Client authentication

I don't know about good.. but sqlplus run in rlwrap which makes it use readline is somewhat decent for a commandline app.

There error is telling ... The problem is that you ran initdb as your local login, but I'm pretty that your login (username) doesn't have access to /var/run/postgresql. If you have a clean install, may I recommend that you remove the data directory and start all over, this time by su-ing into the postgres account: username@jupiter:~$ sudo su - postgres ...

OBSERVATION #1 Since your buffer pool is 6G (6144M), the innodb_log_file_size should be 1536M (25% of 6G) OBSERVATION #2 You have sync_binlog set to 1. This provides the safest ACID compliant setup. It can also slow things down dramatically. You say it seems as though its writing each row 1 at a time to disk. That's the case because each completed DML ...

When reading the configuration file, the mysql command line client only reads configuration directives found in the [client] and [mysql] sections, while mysqldump only uses configuration directives found in the [client] and [mysqldump] sections. If your socket directive in the config file is in the [mysql] section but not the [mysqldump] section then you ...

"no space left on the device" could also mean that the partition is out of inodes. Use df -i to check inode usage. Edit: Each file, directory, and symbolic link requires one inode. So the idea is to remove some files from the / partition. It doesn't matter how large the files are. You can of course just pick some files on the partition and move them to ...

The buffer pool is used by MySQL for caching InnoDB data and indexes in memory. It is not the total memory used but your MySQL DB If your InnoDB tables are that small 128MB is more than enough and effectively all InnoDB tables will be treated as in-memory tables. The 128Mb is a limit of how large the buffer can be and it is only filled when needed. You can ...

You can use the environment variable PGOPTIONS. Either set it permanently or just when you call psql, e.g., PGOPTIONS='--statement-timeout=1min' psql ... This works for any libpq client, including psycopg. Of course you could also just put the SET statement in the psqlscript.

If you are using InnoDB tables, the size of your ibdata files will grow over time. So, if you issue DELETE statement, your database size will reduce, but the ibdata file will remain the same (not reduce). If you are not using innodb_file_per_table option, the only way to reclaim the space is by dumping the database and restoring from the dumpfile. However, ...

I find that error particularly disturbing because MySQL introduced INFORMATION_SCHEMA with the introduction of MySQL 5.0. @gbn's answer shows that this bug goes back to MySQL 5.0.16 was reported on ANY operating having this was based on the error happening in the IBM AIX 5.3 ML2 Operating System was closed 2006-01-26 MySQL's definition of a database is ...

Oracle has an alert log which should tell you when and why it shut down. Depending on how the database was configured, that will be under a directory identified by either the diagnostic_dest or background_dump_dest parameters, and will be called alert.xml or alert.log (in previous versions). If you're running it, you can get information from Enterprise ...

UPDATE: it looks like this is a bug in the Debian/Ubuntu packaging of PostgreSQL, where the init scripts - extremely unsafely - kill -9 the postmaster and remove postmaster.pid. See this post on pgsql-general. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/postgresql-common/+bug/1042556 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=686060 ...

You can turn off (and on) the paging in psql: \pset pager [on|off] If you don't specify on or off, the command will toggle the setting. (More on \pset in the documentation.) In the shell, you can even set the pager you want to use: PAGER=/usr/bin/less If you start psql after this, less will be your pager.

You probably just need to delete the lock file in /var/lib/mongodb, and then restart the service. If you still have problems, you should run mongod --repair (along with the other options, at least the dbpath).

I think the permissions are correct because otherwise you wouldn't have gotten here. My guess is that a modification you have made has caused the problem. This is particularly the case given that it is a segmentation fault. What you really need to do is look at the call stack at the time the core was dumped and see if you can isolate where in the code ...

Updated Per Feedback I never really found a good answer to this that didn't involve a lot of manual steps, so I made a solution. You can download a script from my oracle_instant_client_for_ubuntu Github repo which will convert Oracle rpms into Ubuntu compatible packages and then install them for you. It now supports multiple versions of the instant client. ...

Neither MyISAM nor InnoDB have multithreaded query implementation. Nor do other XtraDB, TokuDB. It is a long standing issue and limitation of MySQL. I don't know that the limitation is within the MySQL server, but rather in the storage engine implementation. No one ever did it... I'm currently evaluating the column-store InfiniDB and Infobright IEE. They ...

Your grants are not replicating because you have an (unnecessary) replication filter on INFORMATION_SCHEMA. There is no reason to exclude this, as it is not replicated anyhow. When replication filters are in place, you have to USE a database or your statements are not replicated. For example...not replicated Grant all privileges on *.* to foo@localhost ...

Have you looked into the mysqld_multi tool ? This will allow you to run different configurations and different distros using the same configuration file (/etc/mysql/my.cnf) and you could adjust the init.d script to use the mysqld_multi commands instead of mysqld. Another tool might be mysql sandbox, but I've never used that personally on any distro.
