Preface

Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database (TimesTen) is a relational database that is memory-optimized for fast response and throughput. The database resides entirely in memory at runtime and is persisted to disk storage for the ability to recover and restart. Replication features allow high availability. TimesTen supports standard application interfaces JDBC, ODBC, and ODP.NET, in addition to Oracle interfaces PL/SQL, OCI, and Pro*C/C++. TimesTen is available separately or as a cache for Oracle Database.

Audience

This guide provides a reference of all TimesTen error messages and information on SNMP traps.

This document is intended for readers with a basic understanding of database systems.

TimesTen documentation uses these variables to identify path, file and user names:

Convention Meaning

TTinstance The instance name for your specific installation of TimesTen. Each installation of TimesTen must be identified at install time with a unique alphanumeric instance name. This name appears in the install path.
bits or bb Two digits, either 32 or 64, that represent either the 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.
release or rr The first three parts in a release number, with or without dots. The first three parts of a release number represent a major TimesTen release. For example, 1122 or 11.2.2 represents TimesTen 11g Release 2 (11.2.2).
jdk_version Two digits that represent the version number of the major JDK release. Specifically, 14 represent JDK 1.4; 5 represents JDK 5.
timesten A sample name for the TimesTen instance administrator. You can use any legal user name as the TimesTen administrator. On Windows, the TimesTen instance administrator must be a member of the Administrators group. Each TimesTen instance can have a unique instance administrator name.
