Does anyone have experience with the efficiency of global temporary tables?

I am interested in declaring a global temporary table within an
application. The application processes 1 set of 600 or less rows each
Multiple programs can and do call this one application at the same
time. Today, we are using a permanent DB2 table and getting all
kinds of locking even with row level locking on. In addition, our
performance is slow as we do two inserts and two deletes on each row
per program iteration. The program can be called up to 5 or 6
thousand time in one run. Or, it may only be called once.

The bottom line: What potential problems are there with declaring a
temporary table on the fly? Is this efficient or does it cost much

Chcuk, yes we are using global temporary tables in our app (ERP) and
the performance is good. My recomendations are :
- Create a separate tablespace for the session tables
your_table_spac e_for_session tables to avoid deleting all rows when
you commit a transaction. Default behavior of a declared temporary
table is to delete all rows from the table when you commit a
- Add NOT LOGGED to the DECLARE statement to avoid logging of the

How does Ruby compare to Python?? How good is DESIGN of Ruby compared to Python? Python's design is godly. I'm wondering if Ruby's is godly too.

Hi, I am creating a global temporary table that is session-specific. I insert a BLOB into this table, and then select the BLOB from this table into a ResultSet. The ResultSet sees this BLOB object, and I am able to get the binary input stream from this blob. However, when I invoke InputStream.read(byte) on this input stream, I get the following exception: java.io.IOException: ORA-01410: invalid ROWID

In our application we have a table that tracks network sessions. The usage is: 1) create a session record 2) read/update the record several times during the session 3) delete the session record when the session ends Update activity on this table is going to be pretty intense, and the transient nature of the data makes it a good candidate for a temporary and/or in-memory table.

I have a few Access 97 DB's and I'm linking SQL tables via ODBC connection in vba code. I've found that the performance is slowing down. I have a few macros that import TXT files using import specs and from there it begins a series of queries to manipulate the table and eventually put it into the linked SQL tables. When I started it was rather quick however now I'm finding that the process is taking longer.
