TCP/IP Tuning

An overview of TCP/IP tuning. This post lists and describes the common TCP parameters and explains key factors that will affect your buffer needs, and how using jumbo frames can enhance performance. We show you how to set TCP parameters on Windows, Solaris, AIX, Linux and HP-UX, and lists the common parameters on each system.

A large project is defined as having 200,000 assets or more. There are several ways to speed up deployment, i.e. disabling the option to purge deployment data automatically. Note that DAF deployment process data must then be purged manually after this process completes.

Is it possible to insert quality checks into the baseline update procedure? The short answer is yes. This blog will demonstrate a technique using the Endeca CAS API that allows customers to validate data in a Record Store to ensure its quantity/quality before performing a baseline update. This technique holds value for ATG customers who, for example, find incomplete or incorrect catalog data in their MDEX. With a few simple validation rules, you can avoid late detection of issues.

Oracle Commerce Cloud, or OCC, features a robust content management system that is ideal for publishing images and text for enterprise websites. Users can upload images, create and/or import content components for use in promotional items, create widgets and attributes to manage and deploy various digital assets more effectively.

Warming the cache is when we want to preemptively fetch repository items from the database in anticipation of future use. This article address how to warm the cache for optimal web page performance, explaining the following: determining whether warming is really necessary, fixing root cause of latency, limiting warming to active items, item size reduction, avoiding warming items that result in excessive startup delay, among other techniques.

JVM settings are a much discussed topic among Oracle Commerce clients. Optimal settings can only be obtained after tuning activities, which can take many iterations of collecting data, analyzing logs and fine-tuning JVM settings. These settings are unique to each client and therefore not possible to have a “one size fits all” solution. This article provides some JVM settings that can be used as a starting point as a way of providing guidance to those who are starting on the journey to configure and/or setup their environment. Restricted to versions 7 and 8 of the Hotspot JVM.

You can quickly install Oracle ATG Commerce and configure it in Oracle Public Cloud (OPC) using Oracle-provided images from the Oracle Cloud Marketplace. These images are based on the Oracle ATG Commerce provisioning process.

A predefined configuration template and corresponding orchestration files are provided; allowing the end user to have an ATG demo environment running quickly.

Oracle ATG Commerce provisioning tool set allows for rapid deployment of the ATG Commerce stack. The tool set contains three components that can be used independently or together to create a Cloud provisioning, software installation and software configuration solution.

The Oracle ATG Commerce stack is comprised of several integrated software packages. All tools are written in Python and tested against Solaris SPARC and Oracle Linux, but will likely work on any flavor of Linux/Unix with an appropriate Python interpreter.

This article contains tips on how to optimize one-off queries returned in Endeca. One tip is to scan for stand-alone Endeca queries in the code. It also recommends improving queries by limiting which properties to return on a record, limiting the number of records to return, and omitting supplemental objects.

This set of tools allows management of Oracle ATG Commerce Content Administration (a.k.a The BCC) via REST services. These tools facilitate managing an Oracle ATG Commerce installation in the cloud environment without the need to manually use the BCC.

These tools also enable bursting, or auto-scaling an ATG cluster, and ATG instances can be added or removed from an existing cluster without the need to manually modify the BCC topology.
