Data Source Configuration Properties

The configuration properties of a JDBC or an ODBC data source, also called source configuration, specify certain characteristics of the underlying source such as the operations they support.

The Execution Engine uses this information to know which operations are supported by the source, in order to push down to the data source as much processing as possible to optimize response times and minimize traffic through the network.

Note

Usually, users do not need to change these settings since Virtual DataPort automatically uses suitable configurations for most common data sources.

You can define them in the “Source configuration” tab of the data source or by adding them to the statement CREATE DATASOURCE.

The table below lists the properties you can configure in the SOURCECONFIGURATION clause of the data sources. On the left column, you have the name of each property; on the right column, the label of this property in the administration tool, in the tab “Source configuration” of the data source. To find the meaning of a property, go to the section Data Source Configuration Properties of the Administration Guide.
