Reducing a 3 to 6 hour SSIS job to 2 minutes

2011-11-06

In computer programming, the OCD inside many computer programmers wants to write the most efficient program possible in order to accomplish the task at hand. This of course has to be balanced with time to completion, understanding of requirements, complexity, and generally how many other tasks are also waiting to be completed. Sometimes, you make due with "get 'er done" mainly because the system completes the job in an acceptable amount of time. This can be especially true of a scheduled job - like SSIS tasks.

Freedom9 freeView IP 100 IP KVM Switch Review

2007-04-24

I have received for review the IP KVM switch called freeView IP 100 (KVM-01IA) made by Freedom9. This switch is a single port IP KVM switch which means you can control the computer over the Internet or your local network even during the BIOS and CMOS settings screens. In a home setting attaching a monitor to your computer may seem inconvenient but not out of the question. However, in some data center type settings or where the servers or computers may be too remote to easily do this the IP KVM may be an ideal solution for that kind of a situation. There's not much that can compare to the frustration of working with a computer that has been working for many months or years and then suddenly was not work and your remote screen tools or desktop tools will not allow you to access it because the computer won't boot and you won't be able to see what's on the screen. No longer will you be victim to a remote machine stuck at a "Press F1 to continue" screen!
