Thank God we're...

a) early with this release cycle
b) in maintenance mode
c) working for a client with deep pockets who recognizes the need for a
solid code base

or I would have been an utter wreck by now.

I have to say this has been a fascinating learning experience.  It has been
enlightening reading the SQLite code and beginning to understand its inner
workings.  I feel significantly more confident in the solidity of our code
base and am very grateful that we chose SQLite as our database years ago.
 I doubt I would have had this much cooperation from the Chief Scientist
with any other product.

My brain missed that.   The sequence I described should have been:

prepare query1
prepare query2
begin transaction
create something -> schema change
query1.step
  - schema invalid so recreate
  - recreation of schema changes the generation
query2.step
  - schema invalid so recreate
  - recreation of schema changes the generation
query1.step
  - schema invalid so recreate
  - recreation of schema changes the generation
query2.step
  - schema invalid so recreate
  - recreation of schema changes the generation
end transaction

...which I believe describes your scenario perfectly.  Odd that the script
didn't replicate it, since it should have had the nested transactions as
well.

Thank you very much for your assistance Richard.  I sincerely appreciate it.

Thanks to everyone else who helped guide me on this investigation.

Much better.  I wasn't sure which version to incorporate the changes into
(the link is to the source), so I put them into 3.7.9.

The total mallocs have dropped to 1.5 million -- twice as high as 3.7.5 but
in line.  I'll have to run some additional performance testing but visually
the system appears to be a lot closer to expected.

What was going on? (My client will want a report on the resolution).

Re: [sqlite] Found it

2012-01-25 Thread John Elrick
Richard,

I've found a problem that I don't understand.  Looking at the case
OP_VerifyCookie, I attempted to output pOp->opcode, which I expected to
equal OP_VerifyCookie.  However, it doesn't:

 Schema has changed current state = 'db=0025, pOp->opCode=66785672,
db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema=02110AB0,
db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->schema_cookie=27,
db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->iGeneration=63, u.av.iMeta=27, u.av.iGen=63,
pOp->p1=1, pOp->p2=27, pOp->p3=0'

I don't see anything which should be modifying pOp.  Any thoughts?

Richard,

Is it reasonable to say that, assuming:

1.  The schema has not changed
2.  There is only one connection to the database

that the value of iGeneration should always equal pOp->p3 in
OP_VerifyCookie?

I didn't think of this until now.  The test run starts with no database,
which means the entire create script must be run.  It is physically
impossible for pOp->p3 to be legitimately set to a generation of 0.

Something must be zeroing pOp->p3

what could be going on:

create something -> schema change
query1.step
  - schema invalid so recreate
  - recreation of schema changes the generation

As much as possible, we are using lazy initialization.  A query is prepared
the first time it is used, but the prepared query should be retained until
shutdown.


I do have some more information for you.  I tracking everything which could
call reset and discovered that all of these are stemming from

SQLITE_PRIVATE int sqlite3VdbeHalt(Vdbe *p){

/* Rollback or commit any schema changes that occurred. */
if( p->rc!=SQLITE_OK && db->flags_InternChanges ){
fenestra_sqlite3_dump_stack_trace("rollback in vdbeHalt");
  sqlite3ResetInternalSchema(db, -1);
  db->flags = (db->flags | SQLITE_InternChanges);
}

I added a logging item and retrieved the following data:

status = 'p->rc=17, db->flags=48100a00, SQLITE_InternChanges=200'

So, it appears that something is making SQLite think the schema has changed.

One more bit of interesting information.

if( db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->schema_cookie!=u.av.iMeta ){
fenestra_sqlite3_dump_stack_trace("OP_VerifyCookie");
  sqlite3ResetInternalSchema(db, pOp->p1);
}

The call to fenestra_sqlite3_dump_stack_trace is never invoked.  Whatever
is resetting the internal schema isn't coming from here.

following.  My "huh?" surrounds the question, why is sqlite3SchemaClear
being called if pBt is assigned?

SQLITE_PRIVATE Schema *sqlite3SchemaGet(sqlite3 *db, Btree *pBt){

p = (Schema *)sqlite3BtreeSchema(pBt, sizeof(Schema),
sqlite3SchemaClear);

Nope and nope.

It appears that the value is set here:

  u.av.pBt = db->aDb[pOp->p1].pBt;
  if( u.av.pBt ){
sqlite3BtreeGetMeta(u.av.pBt, BTREE_SCHEMA_VERSION, (u32 *));
u.av.iGen = db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->iGeneration;
  }else{
u.av.iGen = u.av.iMeta = 0;
  }


I added a log trace to the else condition and it never fired off, so
something is causing db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->iGeneration to change
relative to pOp->p3.  Give me some guidance as to where to dig and I'll be
glad to do so (tomorrow, my 9 year old daughter just asked for ice cream).

Re: [sqlite] Found it

2012-01-24 Thread John Elrick
I really found it this time.

While I was looking over the code changes, I noticed a section of code
dealing with case OP_VerifyCookie:

Inside that section is the following in 3.7.6

  if( u.av.iMeta!=pOp->p2 || u.av.iGen!=pOp->p3 ){
sqlite3DbFree(db, p->zErrMsg);
p->zErrMsg = sqlite3DbStrDup(db, "database schema has changed");
/* If the schema-cookie from the database file matches the cookie
** stored with the in-memory representation of the schema, do
** not reload the schema from the database file.
**
** If virtual-tables are in use, this is not just an optimization.
** Often, v-tables store their data in other SQLite tables, which
** are queried from within xNext() and other v-table methods using
** prepared queries. If such a query is out-of-date, we do not want to
** discard the database schema, as the user code implementing the
** v-table would have to be ready for the sqlite3_vtab structure itself
** to be invalidated whenever sqlite3_step() is called from within
** a v-table method.
*/
if( db->aDb[pOp->p1].pSchema->schema_cookie!=u.av.iMeta ){
  sqlite3ResetInternalSchema(db, pOp->p1);
}

On a hunch, I replaced this line:

  if( u.av.iMeta!=pOp->p2 || u.av.iGen!=pOp->p3 ){

with the if statement from 3.7.5

  if( u.av.iMeta!=pOp->p2 ){

When I do, the number of mallocs drops back to 14,000 - still a little
higher than in 3.7.5, but nowhere near 140,000.

Does that help?

3.7.6

So there was a jump, but not to the full level.

Both of these are low malloc count.

I happened to think on my long drive from Frederick, are their canonical
procedures used to flag the system, to tell it that the schema needs
rebuilt?  Maybe I should attempt a call stack trace on those (if they
exist).

Richard,

I added some tracking which keeps a log of every query and writes the last
50 things done when the call to sqlite3ResetInternalSchema() takes place.
 Here is a fairly representative entry.  The last SQL is the one which
triggered the call to sqlite3ResetInternalSchema().  Nothing here which
touches the schema of the database that I can see.

last 50 sqls = 'step: select distinct RESPONSES.RESPONSE_OID from

Thanks very much for the suggestion.  We do not have, nor have any
intention of using, Visual Studio.  It's also not a DLL, the resulting
output is a Borland OBJ, which cannot be generated correctly from any other
compiler.

This one gives the high number of mallocs just as does 3.7.6.

This one is failing to compile.  It needs _msize.  That sounds like the

Just did.  Most of the calls are bubbling up from _sqlite3_step which I
mentioned before.  There are no new changes to the schema immediately prior
to these calls.  Here is one example where step triggers a call to
sqlite3ResetInternalSchema() (apologies for using Delphi and our wrappers,
but I hope it's clear):

  itsSaveTabsheet :=
itsDatabase.prepareExec('INSERT INTO TABSHEETS VALUES (null,
:workbookType, '
  + ':manifestOid, :surveyOid, :formDefinitionId, :prefKey, '
  + ':name, :originalName, :sequence, :columnList)');
...

function TDataServices.saveTabsheet(const tabsheetId, aWorkbookType,
manifestOid, surveyOid,
  formDefinitionOid, aPrefKey, aName, aSeq, aColumnList: string): string;
begin
  itsSaveTabsheet := itsSaveTabsheet;
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':workbookType', aWorkbookType);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':manifestOid', manifestOid);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':surveyOid', surveyOid);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':formDefinitionId', StrToIntDef(formDefinitionOid,
0));
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':prefKey', aPrefKey);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':name', aName);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':originalName', aName);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':sequence', aSeq);
  itsSaveTabsheet.bind(':columnList', aColumnList);
  itsSaveTabsheet.execute;
  result := IntToStr(itsDatabase.lastInsertRowId);
end;

While reviewing our other thread, I noticed a piece of information
concerning sqlite3ResetInternalSchema.  Based on the number of times that I
reported it had been called, I believe that something was changed between
3.7.5 and 3.7.6 which causes sqlite3ResetInternalSchema to be called when
it wasn't in the earlier version.   Is there some kind of enumeration of
what events would cause sqlite3ResetInternalSchema to be called in version
3.7.5 vs 3.7.6?

Addendum.  After looking further it appears that the reparsing is happening
independently of triggering.  In this case, the reparsing occurs 30,502

Richard,

Your last request for some detailed information about what queries were
being processed did the trick.  Here is a description of the problem (and
yes, it appears to be in SQLite).

In 3.7.5, the number one malloc consumer is

...assuming that they ARE being recompiled.  As I indicated, IIRC they are
not.  The issue may stem from the other thing I noticed, a substantial drop
in the size of the average request to _malloc (by an order of magnitude).

I think I can inject something to do some measurements.  I seem to recall,
however, that there was no substantive difference in the number of
times sqlite3RunParser
was called between the two.  I'll check for:

which query is being parsed
how many times that particular query is parsed
how many mallocs are stemming from that particular query.

Maybe that will tell us something.

Brain hurts...

Richard, more information for you.  I rebuilt the call stack checking
system into pure Delphi and confirmed that yy_reduce appears to be the
malloc culprit.  I further created a pair of procedures which I can use to
track the yyruleno from yy_reduce as though it were a call.  Below is a
representative sample of the data.

One interesting thing I noticed is that in 3.7.5, the average <1kb malloc
request size is 181.95 bytes.  In 3.7.6 that average request size drops
to 17.74 bytes.

Both examples are running the same dataset.

Re: [sqlite] Some pieces of the puzzle are coming together

2012-01-22 Thread John Elrick
I may not have been clear that these two separate tests both used the
Delphi bridge (as you refer to it).  What they point to is an unusual
interaction between our full application and SQLite is triggering the
increase in malloc calls.

I'll send it in a bit.  I actually created the complete script a week ago.

Richard, I greatly appreciate your time and the attention you've given this
matter.  I have no doubt this is a very esoteric issue which we just
happened to hit the exact combination of events to force its
manifestation.  As frustrating as it has been to narrow down the cause, I
have nothing but respect and gratitude for everyone who has attempted to
help.  Thank you all.

Re: [sqlite] Some pieces of the puzzle are coming together

I don't mean to blow anyone off, but there are over 100 prepared queries
involved in a very interlaced manner.  Getting the EXPLAIN data is very
time consuming and since we've gone way past that point already by
obtaining call stack information, I am not interested in revisiting the
territory unless there is a very good reason for it.  At least I know we
can successfully upgrade to 3.7.5 without any performance issues.  It would
be nice to understand what is going on from that version forward, however,
because it is important that we be able to continue upgrades in the future.

The problem is not in the queries.  The problem is in a two order of
magnitude increase in _mallocs between the versions.  The _mallocs are
coming from sqlite3Parser.

I asked in an earlier posting if the amalgamations were available
somewhere.  Since C isn't my primary language and I'm building on Windows,
I'd prefer to have the simplest possible route to recreating.  But yes,
that is precisely what I wanted to do in the beginning to identify the
point where everything changed.

A few points I forgot to mention:

1. Each of these snapshots are deltas in the values before the operation
and after.  So, using Example 3, the delta in cumulative malloc'd memory
was 459,576 bytes and there were 2,323 calls to _malloc for this call to
sqlite3_step.
2. Each of these is ONE operation, not a cumulative for all executions of
that query
3. Example 3 represents an insert operation.  I should add example values
which would be inserted:

:QUESTIONNAIRE_OID: Integer
:QUESTIONNAIRE_NAME: string 9 characters long
:definition_parent: Integer
:instance_parent: Integer

Ok.  It's NOT triggering sqlite3Reprepare like clockwork.  I added a
function to allow me to check the return value and sqlite3Reprepare is
being called an appropriate number of times.  So we're back to the original
question, "why is sqlite3Parser calling _malloc so many times?"  I have an
idea of how to determine if any specific queries are to blame, but I have
to work on something unrelated this morning.

Thanks.  Now this becomes weirder.  I put breakpoints on all the locations
you mentioned and they were activated precisely as expected.  When the
initial database is created, the breakpoints hit, but are not hit during
the actual load process.  Yet, the first while condition in sqlite3_step:

  while( (rc = sqlite3Step(v))==SQLITE_SCHEMA
 && cnt++ < SQLITE_MAX_SCHEMA_RETRY
 && (rc2 = rc = sqlite3Reprepare(v))==SQLITE_OK ){
sqlite3_reset(pStmt);
assert( v->expired==0 );
  }

is triggering sqlite3Reprepare like clockwork.  So, given that none of the
listed conditions are occurring, what else could be causing sqlite3Step to
return SQLITE_SCHEMA?

I've been reading through the code.  Do I understand correctly that if one
prepared statement binding is changed in such a way as may influence the
choice of the query plan that all the prepared statements for that database
connection are flagged for being re-prepared?


SQLITE_PRIVATE void sqlite3ExpirePreparedStatements(sqlite3 *db){
  Vdbe *p;
  for(p = db->pVdbe; p; p=p->pNext){
p->expired = 1;
  }
}

Re: [sqlite] Some pieces of the puzzle are coming together

2012-01-19 Thread John Elrick
Interesting:

1. There are no database schema changes occurring after the system is fully
initialized
2. There are no ATTACHed databases (we checked that earlier)
3. There are no calls to VACUUM
4. As far as I am aware, there are no changes to any callbacks after the
system is fully initialized.

I believe your earlier note is pointing us in the right direction.
Examining my call stacks, it appears that the query is being reparsed on
every call to step.  The question is, why?  Did any of these conditions
change between 3.6.17 and 3.7.9?  Maybe we are doing something that is
unintentionally triggering the re-parse which did not do so in the earlier
version.

Re: [sqlite] Some pieces of the puzzle are coming together

2012-01-18 Thread John Elrick
I made one more stab and narrowed down the mallocs to this call:

Count:119,133 = 'sqlite3Parser_lt_YYNSTATEpYYNRULE(12)
sqlite3Parser(11)
sqlite3RunParser(10)
sqlite3Prepare(9)
sqlite3_prepare(8)
sqlite3_exec_inner_loop_invoke_callback(7)
sqlite3_exec_outer_while(6)
sqlite3_exec(5)
sqlite3Parser_lt_YYNSTATEpYYNRULE(4)
sqlite3Parser(3)
sqlite3RunParser(2)
sqlite3Prepare(1)
sqlite3_step(0)'

/**CS_ID**/ fenestra_sqlite3_push(csid_sqlite3Parser_lt_YYNSTATEpYYNRULE);
  yy_reduce(yypParser,yyact-YYNSTATE);
/**CS_ID**/ fenestra_sqlite3_pop(csid_sqlite3Parser_lt_YYNSTATEpYYNRULE);

I started looking at yy_reduce, but it looks machine generated.  If you
give me some direction I'll see if I can narrow it down further.

I attempted all of the above and the call stacks do not change.  That leads
me to one of two conclusions:

1.  The call stacks are inaccurate
2.  There is some side effect which is causing malloc to be called inside
of a procedure which should not be calling malloc.

I've posted an update to my mistaken realloc listing.  I may have to take a
break to see if I can think of another approach to the problem.

Unfortunately getting our project (circa 500,000 lines including 3rd party)
would require a massive conversion effort to compile under Lazarus.  I've
investigated it.

I did this trace through the Delphi IDE and hand copied the call stack.
 Unfortunately, I can't give you line numbers, although I could go back and
give you hex offsets from the start of the procedures.  These are literally
the first seven call stacks from _malloc after I initiate the trace.  I'm
noticing a pattern.  Hopefully 1) the information from the IDE is accurate
and 2) this helps.  The trace reads from bottom to top.

Richard,

I created this code and am in the process of gathering preliminary
statistics.  However, I am getting a

SQLITE_MISUSE 21 /* Library used incorrectly */

when I attempt to use the current _sqlite3_status interface with 3.6.17.
 If you could tell me the interface for that version, I'll add conditionals
so we can compare the results of the two.

There are 88 unique queries run against the database.  They are mostly
automatically created from a class structure.  However, without dumping the
entire database in front of you, the following query should provide a good,
isolated example:

5,008 calls to

UPDATE RESPONSES SET
RESPONSE_NAME = :RESPONSE_NAME,
prelisted_value = :prelisted_value
WHERE RESPONSE_OID = :RESPONSE_OID

3.6.17: 382 ms
3.7.9: 5,924 ms

There are 80,021 rows in RESPONSES.  The CREATE statement for RESPONSES
reads:

CREATE TABLE responses (
  response_oid integer primary key autoincrement,
  response_name varchar,
  definition_parent integer,
  instance_parent integer,
  prelisted_value varchar,
  override_behavior_oid integer,
  soft_deleted_char varchar default 'F' );

CREATE INDEX response_definition_parent_idx on responses
(definition_parent);

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX response_instance_parent_idx on responses
(instance_parent, definition_parent);

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX response_instance_parent_idx2 on responses
(response_name, instance_parent, definition_parent);

There are many CREATE INDEX statements which are all run at the beginning
when the database is initially created.  I can run a test with your
suggestion early next week.

[sqlite] Some pieces of the puzzle are coming together

2012-01-13 Thread John Elrick
Richard and all,

On January 6, I wrote a posting (Problems encountered while upgrading
Sqlite from 3.6.7 to 3.7.9) concerning a slow down noticed in upgrading our
Delphi application from using 3.6.17 to 3.7.9.  Richard asked for some more
specific information including a replicatable case, which has proven
problematic.  Here are the results of my week long investigation.

I created a logging system which took a specific set of data and converted
all of the automatically run queries to an SQL script which I could use in
a test application.  When testing this particular script using a test
program which uses our Delphi wrappers the following times are observed:

Test Application Run Batch Script

3.6.17: 14 seconds
3.7.9: 10 seconds

This clearly demonstrates that the newer version of Sqlite is, all things
being equal, superior in performance to the older.  However, tests inside
our Delphi application demonstrate that reaching the exact same point of
the database result in the following times:

Live Application

3.6.17: 16 seconds
3.7.9: 58 seconds

Extensive profiling of the application finally turned up an unusual and
inexplicable difference between the console application and our regular
application.  I am hoping someone on this group may have some ideas.

I created a Pascal unit whose sole purpose was to delegate to our C
standard library unit.  By having delegates in place it becomes easy to
profile the application.  This unit is used only by the Sqlite libraries.

When I execute the application with the same data as above, the following
are the top consumers of time:

3.6.17

Procedure   % TimeTimeCalls
_sqlite3_step   58.4%  1.795,052
_memcpy 22.8%  0.691,342,957
_memset  7.8%  0.24  465,299
...
_malloc  1.9%  0.06   95,505


3.7.9

Procedure   % TimeTimeCalls
_malloc 56.9% 44.396,975,335
_sqlite3_step   30.4% 23.685,052
_memcpy  4.8%  3.707,710,259



So, obviously the problem is that _malloc is being called a much larger
number of times by 3.7.9 in this particular circumstance -- roughly 70
times as often.  _memcpy demonstrates roughly 6 times as many calls   I ran
a test with a much smaller dataset tracking every call to malloc back to
the main source line.  The results were as follows:

3.6.17,
_sqlite3_exec calls _malloc 1,101 times
_sqlite3_step calls _malloc 1,812 times

3.7.9
 _sqlite3_exec calls _malloc 65,227 times
_sqlite3_step calls _malloc 47,109 times

At this point I've exhausted my avenues of research.  Does anyone have any
further ideas as to what may be going on which could cause this increase in
memory management activity?  Or any suggestions of where to look next?

[sqlite] Is there some hidden way to create a log record of Sqlite commands?

2012-01-11 Thread John Elrick
I'm still debugging the issue I reported earlier concerning upgrading
from 3.6.17 to 3.7.9.  One solution we are examining would be to
create a log of all SQL commands executed and then replay the log
using the different versions.  As an example, if I were to execute
(psuedo-code)

command := db.prepareExec('insert into foo values (:bar)');

for i := 0 to 100 do
  begin
command.bind(':bar', i);
command.execute;
  end;

the log would produce:

insert into foo values(1);
insert into foo values(2);
...
insert into foo values(100);

>From my examination of Sqlite, there doesn't appear to be a built in
mechanism for creating this type of log.  Is this correct or am I
missing something?

Nope.  I assume that the resulting .OBJ files are self contained.
I'll run the tests you suggest just to make certain.

I will have to get back to you on this.  While running tests against
isolated queries, I noticed an unusual circumstance.  When I isolate
the queries into a test program, running through our present
libraries, 3.7.9 is roughly 4 times faster executing the exact same
queries where it is running roughly 5 times slower in the context of
the application.  As those queries do not execute in the same order, I
suspect that page swapping and caching issues may be involved.  I'm
proceeding on that assumption.

Richard,

I have the information available for you.  Unfortunately, it appears
that I cannot actually reduce the case, however, the issues appear to
be fairly confined.

The test database is 6 MB and I have a database showing the
performance tracking for each of the queries which is about 140KB.
The combined files are 2.4 MB.  How would you prefer I send this file
to you?

Yes.  Look for it on Monday.  I'm about to leave for the day. The
queries are automatically generated and will require some mining to

[sqlite] Problems encountered while upgrading Sqlite from 3.6.7 to 3.7.9

2012-01-06 Thread John Elrick
Background
=
We have been using Sqlite3 in a project since 2007.   Because of the
release cycles involved, we normally upgrade infrequently.  We
recently upgraded from 3.6.7 to 3.7.9 and encountered two serious
issues. We need assistance in narrowing down the causes.

We are developing using Delphi.  We are using the amalgamation and are
compiling it using the free Borland BCC complier.  The result is an
obj file which is statically linked into our application.  We have
been using this technique since we began using Sqlite.

In the tests below, the strategy for changing between versions is to
change which obj file is statically linked into the application.  The
application was recompiled between each test.

Issues Encountered
===

1.  After changing there is an order of magnitude performance
reduction.  Using GP Profile to monitor operations, here are the
results for identical application uses:

Operation executes _sqlite3_step 49,152 times

3.6.7 time 5.24 seconds
3.7.9 time 41.19 seconds

2.  During testing we encountered a bug which had not been encountered
before.  Research by our CTO established that in 3.7.9 a row was
returned from this query which contained empty values.  In 3.6.7 there
were no results from the query.

Summation
=
Given how throughly Sqlite is tested I have difficulty believing there
is an actual bug in Sqlite.  I believe an interaction is occurring
which is a result of changes to the Sqlite code base which are
producing unexpected resulted when compiled into our application.  To
help resolve the problem, I would like to know if there is an
historical record of the amalgamations.  If so, I can carry out
testing to determine in what version the problem manifests.

If anyone has any other recommendations I would be pleased to hear
them.  For the moment we are reverting to 3.6.7 as a temporary
solution.

I could be misunderstanding your requirements, but this sounds a little 
like Map Reduce:

http://labs.google.com/papers/mapreduce.html

The only point I'd question is your assertion that you could speed up 
the overall time by running more than one long running process at the 
same time.  You *might* be able to do so up to the limit of the cores in 
the machine or by distributing the load over many machines, however, the 
implication to me of a long running process is something that is 
consuming large amounts of CPU time.  It is possible that running 
multiple processes per processor could actually increase the total 
amount of time due to process swap overhead.

FWIW,

I don't know if this behavior is a bug or is simply working as designed 
given the constraints of INTEGER PRIMARY KEY. The behavior does, 
admittedly, produce a result which does not correspond to expectations 
and therefore is a possible source of downstream bugs.  Perhaps it 
merits investigation.

Personally, I would expect the result:

rowid|id
1|I am "id" field

But that's me...

I hate to chime in here, but:

"I'm a starter on SQL / SQLite..."

Your exact words from your first posting.  So either:

a. You are a beginner in both SQL and SQLite, in which case the 
suggestion to obtain the extensive knowledge available from books is 
valid or
b. your statement mislead the group by misinforming them as to your 
state of knowledge.

FWIW

IMHO it's a bug (or oversight):

C:\Users\John\Documents>sqlite3 test.db3
SQLite version 3.6.20
Enter ".help" for instructions
Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
sqlite> create table foo (id integer, value varchar);
sqlite> .q

sqlite> select r.* from myfoo.foo r;
1|hello
sqlite> select myfoo.foo.* from myfoo.foo r;
Error: near "*": syntax error
sqlite>


I cannot think of a good reason why:

select myfoo.foo.* from myfoo.foo;

would be expected to produce different results than:

select r.* from myfoo.foo r;

If the former is invalid, then the latter should be also and vis versa.

My own opinion, but there it is.

FWIW,

In my experience, adding multi-user capability to an application 
increases the complexity by at least an order of magnitude.  If you have 
20 people who need access there are two options (IMO):

1.  Web based application.  In this case the database itself has one and 
only one consumer, the web server.  If you can keep the access to a 
single thread, you have multi-user with no greater complexity than 
single user -- albeit the user will have to stare at a web browser if 
some long running process interferes.
2.  Client/Server.  Again, the database has only one consumer, the local 
server, which manages all the complex details.  MySQL, Firebird, and 
PostgreSQL are open source/free/low cost examples of this type of 
system, however, the tricks that will work for a local database (lists 
and grids are a big offender here) will NOT work effectively in a C/S 
environment.

There are some OBJ files needed, we picked them up from somewhere, but I

In Delphi it's the compiler directive {$L 'path\sqlite3.obj'}
... the other needed objs

and then you declare the functions:

  // Primary commands
  function  _sqlite3_open(dbname: PAnsiChar; var db: pointer): integer; 
cdecl; external;
  function  _sqlite3_prepare(db: Pointer; SQLStatement: PAnsiChar; 
nBytes: integer;
 var hstatement: pointer; var Tail: 
PAnsiChar): integer; cdecl; external;
  function  _sqlite3_prepare_v2(db: Pointer; SQLStatement: PAnsiChar; 
nBytes: integer;
 var hstatement: pointer; var Tail: 
PAnsiChar): integer; cdecl; external;
  function  _sqlite3_exec(DB: Pointer; SQLStatement: PAnsiChar; 
Callback: TSQLite3_Callback;
  UserDate: Pointer; var ErrMsg: PAnsiChar): 
Integer; cdecl; external;
...etc

If you are using Delphi, I'd be glad to send you the static library unit 
and our .obj files.

We use bcc32 to create an .obj which is linked into our Delphi 
application.  No issues here and we've been using it for three years on 
a project deployed to several hundred thousand people.

Thanks, I did some additional experiments with only integers and got 
similar results.  I had always been testing against, shall we say, more 
robust data.

Would you mind my asking what language and what OS you are using?  My 
best performance tests have given ~10,000 rows per second on Windows 
based machines, your results indicate two orders of magnitude better.

Another solution is to use a GUID instead of an integer.

I would think the programming is relatively easy...the hard part is 
getting the rules right and being confident you've covered all the edge 
cases.

As many as necessary, but no more

Simon,

Isn't this a variation of the DVCS problem?   In other words, would it 
be correct in saying that the underlying issue is treating this as a 
database problem, rather than it being a versioning problem which 
happens to involve a database?

I ask because there are two separate projects which involve this sort of 
issue which I have simply deferred for the time being.
