Scaling Genomic Workflows with Spark SQL BGEN and VCF Readers
6 hours ago, databricks

In the past decade, the amount of available genomic data has exploded as the price of genome sequencing has dropped. Researchers are now able to scan for associations between genetic variation and diseases across cohorts of hundreds of thousands of individuals from projects such as the UK Biobank. These analyses will lead to a deeper […] The post Scaling Genomic Workflows with Spark SQL BGEN and VCF Readers appeared first on Databricks....

Stored Functions and Temporary Tables are Not a Good Fit

In this blog post, I am going to show why we have to be careful with stored functions in select list, as a single query can cause thousands of queries in the background if we aren’t cautious. For this example, I am only going to use the SLEEP function to demonstrate the issue, but you […]...

Presentation: Securing Services Using SSO
7 hours ago, infoq

Shraya Ramani talks about BuzzFeed’s transition to microservices and their open-source, homegrown, centralized solution - SSO. This transition needed to secure a growing number of internal tools. Their first solution was an open source auth service deployed in front of each app, but this approach had a number of scaling issues. SSO elegantly solved this problem. By Shraya Ramani...

What Web Designers Can Do To Speed Up Mobile Websites
8 hours ago, smashingmagazine

I recently wrote a blog post for a web designer client about page speed and why it matters. What I didn’t know before writing it was that her agency was struggling to optimize their mobile websites for speed. As a result, she came back to me concerned with publishing a post on a strategy her agency had yet to adopt successfully. She was torn though. She understood how important mobile page speeds were to the user experience and, by proxy, SEO....

In a recently published presentation, he describes different kinds of bounded contexts, including some that involve microservices. By Jan Stenberg...

After almost half a year since last updates I’m glad to announce that another set of useful features and improvements have found their way to pgwatch2 – our Open Source PostgreSQL monitoring tool of choice. New version is incremented to 1.6 but continuing the naming tradition I’m also calling it “Feature Pack 5” as it’s mostly a feature release (with a couple of bugfixes as well). So here a quick overview on changes – for the “full monty” and when updating from a previous version please turn to ...

You’ve created a container image that has all the packages that you and your team need to do something useful, or maybe you’ve built a public image that anybody can use.

Michael Paquier: Postgres 12 highlight - More progress reporting
13 hours ago, postgresql

Since Postgres 11, it is possible to monitor progress activity of running manual VACUUM and even autovacuum using a dedicated system catalog called pg_stat_progress_vacuum. This is vital for operators when doing some long-running operations, because it is possible to not blindly wait for an operation to finish. When doing performance workload analysis, this is also proving to be helpful in evaluating VACUUM job progressing for tuning system-level parameters or even relation-level once depending...

[$] CVE-less vulnerabilities
23 hours ago, lwn

More bugs in free software are being found these days, which is good for many reasons, but there are some possible downsides to that as well. In addition, projects like OSS-Fuzz are finding lots of bugs in an automated fashion—many of which may be security relevant. The sheer number of bugs being reported is overwhelming many (most?) free-software projects, which simply do not have enough eyeballs to fix, or even triage, many of the reports they receive. A discussion about that is currently p...
