MongoDB Migrating away from RocksDB to WiredTiger

We have been working for some time with RocksDB as our engine and we are now trying to migrate to WiredTiger. We have some pretty big databases around 4~12 TB of data and according to the process described in the docs, we added a new node with WiredTiger and tried letting it replicate from scratch.

With the amount of data, the replication times are VERY long and quite a lot of times we were in the situation were the WiredTiger node decided to change the node it was replicating from, only to drop ALL data and start from scratch again. Only once we succeeded in completing the replication, but the node ended up way behind in comparison to the oplog.

Again with this amount of data it becomes prohibitive to have a big enough oplog to hold weeks of transactions and the process is also very flimsy, single threaded, slow and prone to fail.

So my questions are the following;

1.- Is there a better way to proceed with this migration?

2.- Is there a way to speed up replication (i.e. multithreaded replication)?

3.- Is there a way to tell the new WiredTiger node to stop dropping all data in case of mishaps?

We are working with 3 and 5 nodes replica sets of Percona MongoDB version 3.4.13 and trying to move to Open Source MongoDB 3.4.13 (with the idea of upgrading to 4.x once we are in WiredTiger and dropping RocksDB and Percona entirely).

SharePoint content DB status is in stopped state for all the content DB from central admin under manage content DB section.

When i tried to create a new site collection, we found ” SharePoint content DB status is in stopped state for all the content DB from central admin under manage content DB section. “

1) We did perform SharePoint patching couple of months ago. Can we assume it happened successfully if the DB`s are in offline state since long ago?

2) What could be the possible reasons how to avoid it future?

How to Fetch a Frame Number from Animation Clip

I’m trying to find out how to fetch the frame number from an animation clip accurately. I don’t want to get a value between 0 and 1 that shows as a percentage-as-a-decimal how much of the animation has played (example: 0.5 = the 5th frame of 10 frames) because it doesn’t seem to be accurate. This also seems impractical, so is there a way to accurately fetch a frame number from an animation clip?

Thanks.

How would I take data from an Excel tab and create a list for use in a Classify function?

I would like to do the following:

  1. Load data from a single tab of an Excel workbook into a Mathematica table.
  2. Prepare the data for use with the Mathematica Classify function.

The training set that I want to pass into Classify would be:

{{cell[2,1],cell[2,2],cell[2,3]}->cell{2,7},  {cell[3,1],cell[3,2],cell[3,3]}->cell{3,7}, ...    ,{cell[n,1],cell[n,2],cell[n,3]}->cell{n,7}} 

I have no problem importing the Excel data into a table.

I am unsure as to how this data would be converted into a list for use with Classify.

Script to remove icons from the Windows 10 taskbar

I am trying to clean up our deployment process and give all users a clean and bloat-free desktop, start menu, and taskbar. We are using Windows 10 (1803).

My Goal is as follows {

Desktop: Icon for Recycle Bin only

Start Menu: Left Side: Standard scrolling list of all installed software. Right Side: Only icons for software installed during deployment task sequence.

Taskbar: The same icons as the commonly used items listed on the right side of the start menu. Again, only for software installed during task sequence.

}

So far, I have been able to implement a solution to manipulate the Desktop, Start Menu, and Taskbar using xml via group policy. All of my desired icons are arranged as I would like, …….BUT……

I cant seem to figure out how to automate the REMOVAL of icons that Microsoft adds to the taskbar when a new user first logs in, mainly Edge and Store. My GP solution adds my desired icons to the taskbar just fine, but icons for Edge, Store, and File Explorer are being automatically populated on the taskbar via a process I cannot pinpoint.

I am currently trying to write a script that will Un-pin these icons (with the exception of file explorer which I will keep, thanks) but I cant find where to point my commands to delete the correct .lnk files for these icons. Right-Clicking those programs in the start-menu does not point me to the path. Scouring various forums has led me to scripts which delete items from a User-Pinned folder, but these specific icons aren’t coming from there. Again, Desktop and Start Menu are good at this point. Just the Taskbar is in question.

I am aware that simple right-clicking will solve the issue easily, but this requires user interaction, and my goal here is a truly clean deployment. I dont want the user to have to do anything after the imaging process is completed.

Thank you to anyone who can offer insight into this.
