Partitioned Database Introduction
TIBCO Foresight® Transaction Insight® Release reduces call volume and improves provider-member
relations through advanced reporting, secure portal technology, and facilitated research capabilities.
The Transaction Insight® (TI) 5.0.0 and later database utilizes partitioning. This is a change from previous
versions of TI. Partitioning allows you to manage the size of your database more consistently and should
improve portal performance in most environments.
Customers should pay close attention to the information provided in System Requirements (page 3) and
Database Partitioning (page 5) for important information on this change as additional software is required
and advance planning is vital.

Database Partitioning Overview
Introduction
The TI 5.0.0 and later database utilizes partitioning. This is a change from previous versions of TI.
Partitioning allows you to manage the size of your database more consistently and should improve portal
performance in most environments. Customers should notice:

Faster purging of database information

Increased speed for searches with date ranges included.
Migration from earlier versions to TI 5.0.0 and later require a new environment with a new database.
There is no upgrade path from previous versions (see “Upgrades from Previous Versions of TI” on page
6).
TI 5.0.0 and later includes a recommended partitioning scheme.
Impact on Existing TI Customers
Planning for the move to TI’s partitioned database structure is essential. The first step is to contact the
TIBCO Foresight Professional Services Group and/or TIBCO Foresight Technical Support to prepare a
plan for the new installation. The following items must be considered.
Additional Software Required
TI 5.0.0 and later requires an Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database that provides database
partitioning, such as Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition with Oracle Partitioning or Microsoft SQL
Server 2012 Enterprise edition. Refer to System Requirements on page 3 for additional information.
This may require additional software procurement or upgrades to existing database software.
Possible Hardware and Software Upgrades
Customers may need to upgrade existing hardware, memory, and third party software to meet required
minimums for TI 5.0.0 and later. Refer to System Requirements on page 3 for additional information.
Database Administration Support
TI depends on a robust, well-managed database for optimal performance. Therefore, database
administration support is critical in setting up and maintaining the TI database.
It's essential to plan the partitioning structure before creating the database and importing data. Making
changes to an already partitioned database is extremely difficult. TI 5.0.0 and later comes with a
recommended monthly partitioning structure; however the final configuration of the database is up to the
customer and their database administrator.
Remember, database support and maintenance are the responsibility of the database administrator and
database vendor. TIBCO Foresight Support does not provide database administration or database
troubleshooting services. See Database Support Disclaimer (page 1).

Upgrades from Previous Versions of TI
IMPORTANT: Data from previous versions of TI (e.g., from 4.x.x to 5.0.0) will not be migrated.
There is no upgrade path from previous versions of TI. For this reason, customers may choose to have a
time period during which data is imported into both the old (4.x.x) database as well as the new (5.0.0 and
later) database before completely cutting over to TI 5.0.0 and later.
Although you can upgrade from TI 5.0.0 to newer versions, there is no upgrade path from previous
versions to TI 5.0.0 and later. You must use a new environment with a new database.
For example:
TI 5.0.0 → TI 5.1.0 = upgrade available
TI 4.2.0 → TI 5.0.0 = no upgrade available
TI 4.4.0 → TI 5.1.0 = no upgrade available
TIBCO Foresight will provide “move” scripts to transfer administrative data from 4.x.x to 5.0.0 and later.
These scripts will copy information like Partners, Senders, and Receivers, but not document data.
What is a Partitioned Database?
Partitioning is an advanced database feature that requires a database administrator to handle setup and
maintenance. At a high level, partitioning allows the database to sub-divide the data for any particular
table into smaller segments based around time or numeric values. For example, instead of keeping the
data for all dates in one large table, as shown here…
…the database can “partition” the table (Jan, Feb, Mar, etc.) and view each partition as though it were a
smaller table containing only that month of data.
Queries referring to a single partition may perform better and older data can be removed regularly leading
to a more consistent database size and application experience.

Database Partitioning Reference
Partition Key
The TI-supported partition key is SubmissionDate.
Note that some tables should also be partitioned by the Date column. Using the date ties the partitioning
scheme to the tables that are not linked by foreign keys.
Recommended Partitioning Scheme
The following partitioning schemes are illustrated in the default TI Create scripts.
Interval Partitioning (Oracle):

Oracle - Interval partition with extremely old (e.g., 1900) first partition and monthly pattern
Range Partitioning (SQL Server):

SQL Server - Range partition with default values for months of the next five years
Partition Management
Table Order (PurgeTableList)
PurgeTableList is a database table that lists partitioned tables and the order in which they must be
processed when purging.
Foreign Keys (Oracle and SQL Server)
Many TI tables are connected by foreign keys. Therefore, the order presented in the PurgeTableList table
must be followed when dropping partitions or performing partition maintenance. This is important because
dropping partitions requires disabling (Oracle) or dropping (SQL Server) the foreign keys before operation
and re-enabling or re-building them afterward.
Indexes (Oracle and SQL Server)
Many TI tables have Global Indexes. Please note that, while dropping partitions can happen quickly,
rebuilding indices on the tables being purged may take time and can affect performance (Oracle) or can
affect the behavior necessary for partition dropping (SQL Server).
