Changes in This Release for Oracle Database XStream Guide

This preface contains:

Changes in Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1)

The following are changes in Oracle Database XStream Guide for Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1).

New Features

The following features are new in this release:

  • Support for Oracle Multitenant option

    Oracle Multitenant option enables an Oracle database to contain a portable set of schemas, objects, and related structures that appears logically to an application as a separate database. This self-contained collection is called a pluggable database (PDB). A multitenant container database (CDB) contains PDBs. You can configure an XStream Out or XStream In environment that includes CDBs and PDBs.

    See "XStream Out and a Multitenant Environment" and "XStream In and a Multitenant Environment".

  • Eager apply of large transactions with XStream In

    As a performance optimization, an XStream inbound server can use eager apply to begin to apply large transactions before it receives the commit logical change record (LCR).

    See "Optimizing XStream In Performance for Large Transactions".

  • Ability to eliminate apply progress tables with XStream In

    You can configure XStream In to use the redo log to track its progress instead of an apply progress table to avoid potential bottlenecks in transaction processing.

    See "Avoiding Potential Bottlenecks in Transaction Tracking".

  • Optimized transaction apply scheduling with XStream In

    When the constraints on the target tables match the constraints on the source tables, you can optimize dependency computation by setting the compute_lcr_dep_on_arrival apply parameter for an inbound server to Y.

    See "Optimizing Transaction Apply Scheduling".

  • New apply parameters

    The following new apply parameters are added for XStream outbound servers:

    • excludetag

    • excludetrans

    • excludeuser

    • excludeuserid

    • getapplops

    • getreplicates

    The following new apply parameters are added for XStream inbound servers:

    • compute_lcr_dep_on_arrival

    • eager_size

    • enable_xstream_table_stats

    • handlecollisions

    • max_parallelism

    • optimize_progress_table

    • optimize_self_updates

    • suppresstriggers

    See Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for information about these apply parameters.

  • New capture process parameters

    The following new capture process parameters are added for XStream Out configurations:

    • excludetag

    • include_objects

    • inline_lob_optimization

    • use_rac_service

    See Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for information about these apply parameters.

  • Trusted and untrusted security models

    You can implement the XStream security model that best fits with your organization's requirements.

    See "XStream Security Models".

  • Support for the increased size limit for VARCHAR2, NVARCHAR2, and RAW data types

    XStream Out and XStream In support the increased size limit for the VARCHAR2, NVARCHAR2, and RAW data types.

    See "Data Types Captured by a Capture Process" and "Data Types Applied by Inbound Servers".

  • Support for XMLType stored object relationally or as binary XML

    XStream Out and XStream In support XMLType stored object relationally or as binary XML.

    See "Data Types Captured by a Capture Process" and "Data Types Applied by Inbound Servers".

  • Support SecureFiles LOB columns stored using Advanced LOB Deduplication

    XStream supports changes to SecureFiles LOB columns stored using Advanced LOB Deduplication.

  • HTML reports generated by the UTL_SPADV package

    The SHOW_STATS_HTML procedure in the UTL_SPADV package generates HTML output that includes the statistics gathered by the COLLECT_STATS and START_MONITORING procedures in the same package.

    See "The UTL_SPADV Package" and Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference.
