BI4 – Looking at the Architecture

We had a great group to chat with today with Jamie Oswald and Greg Myers, with special guests Jay Riddle and Joshua Fletcher. Today, we spent a good chunk of time talking about BI4 as a platform (our fav).

In the news:

  • ASUG Annual Conference presentation topics are going out
  • asugnews.com is live

Show Notes:

  • BI4 Learning Materials are already online
  • Be sure to register for the BI4 Virtual Launch event
  • BI4 has audit events for Xcelsius confirmed!
  • Sorry for the heavy breather (Greg…OK probably Eric)
  • Also sorry for the audio overlays. We are having technical difficulties at some point where we really aren’t talking over each other.

You Can’t Pick Your Friends OS

The latest podcast, “You can pick your friends, you can pick your OS, but you can’t pick your friends OS”, is up. While we are busy dodging lawsuits for defamation from our comments, you should go download and listen in.

The show notes:

  • Jamie confesses his lack of authority on the topics we discuss (and disdain of Deski)
  • Reportapalooza in flight, User Conference on the Horizon, and new BOBJ deployment options on deck
  • The DSLayer Conference Party is on Greg
  • BOBJ on Windows
  • A good point, InfoView on Tomcat + Linux really does rock
  • We ask, who is the best admin, Windows vs. *nix?
  • Windows needs a lot of lot of reboots
  • Do memory limits hurt Windows?
  • What is more cost effective?
  • We love you, admins
  • Future cool server stuff in the pipeline coming from SAP

An update from Greg…the proof is in the pudding…a BOBJ server that has been up for 3.5 years:

gmyers# uptime
11:23am up 1304 day(s), 3:04, 2 users, load average: 1.38, 1.36, 1.41
