  • Re-engineering of ETL to take advantage of new database design. The new database has a different data model and the ETL required significant re-work. It is also significantly larger (250 GB vs. 50 GB).

As part of a data conversion and performance improvement project, implemented improvements to the ETL by,

  • Created new batches that utilized parallelism better.
  • Analyzed and tested scheduling strategies to fine tune our Informatica batches.
  • Replaced lookups in mappings with join conditions.
  • Broke up complicated slow mapping into multiple mapping that ran much faster and could be run in parallel.
  • Analyzed usage and cached vs. noncached lookups and made changes as needed.
  • Simplified mappings by removing unneeded objects.
  • Removed ‘default’ setting for ports in expression transformations.
  • Minimized the usage of iif statements and other logical processing in mappings where practical.
  • Used monitoring tools in UNIX and the database as part of the tuning process. ( top, sar, dbArtisan, sp_monitor, sp_sysmon)
  • Reviewed hardware architecture and recommended changes.
  • Cleaned up mappings to not create lengthy log files by turning off verbose logging and getting rid of warning messages.
  • Used perl and shell scripts to pre-process data in UNIX.
  • Implemented a partitioning strategy similar to Informatica’s partitioning in version 5 to increase parallelism.
  • Implemented documentation standards and practices to make mappings easier to maintain.

These included the increased parallelism mentioned above to allow sessions to be spread across all available processors. This scalability proved crucial in allowing enterprise wide usage of the data mart.
  • Converted the ETL code-base from PowerCenter 1.7.2 to PowerCenter 5.1.
  • Created a method using the existing version control process to work with Informatica PowerCenter 5.1 and XML.
