Coverity Upgrade to 2019.03
2019 June 7

Attention SCAN users! We will begin upgrading the Coverity tools in SCAN on Monday, 17 June at 0900 MDT to make this free service even better. The SCAN team has been hard at work stabilizing the service and getting ready for this upgrade.

SCAN will be switched to read-only during the upgrade, locking registration and triage, and halting builds. Defect data may be unavailable at times. The upgrade is expected to take three to five days.

After the upgrade, a new version of the Coverity build package will be available for download. The old 8.7 version some users are still using will no longer work after the upgrade. Be sure to download the new build package.

Full details of new features are available at the Community Site.

Coverity 2019.03 has been released!

There are an number of checker additions and updated language support.

The following improvements have been made:

SCALA Language analysis?
Added macOS 10.13, 10.14 support
Added Java9, java10, openjdk11 support
Added .NET Core 2.0.2-1 support
Added TypeScript support
Added Swift 3.3 and 4.1.x support

All users who are experiencing build issues should upgrade to this version; a number of bugs have been fixed with this release.
Supported Versions

Versions 8.7.0.x and older are no longer supported.

The current supported versions are:


Users are encouraged to download the latest tools in Downloads.

Going forward, only the latest two releases will be supported. This means projects should be expected to update their tools approximately once a year (or more frequently if you want the latest features/support).
Build Limits

The number of weekly builds per project are as follows:

Up to 28 builds per week, with a maximum of 4 builds per day, for projects with fewer than 100K lines of code
Up to 21 builds per week, with a maximum of 3 builds per day, for projects with 100K to 500K lines of code
Up to 14 builds per week, with a maximum of 2 build per day, for projects with 500K to 1 million lines of code
Up to 7 builds per week, with a maximum of 1 build per day, for projects with more than 1 million lines of code

Once a project reaches the maximum builds per week, additional build requests will be rejected.

Oracle Bitmap Indexes Limitations/Restrictions

Oracle Bitmap Indexes Limitations/Restrictions

It’s All About ORACLE

Oracle – The number one Database Management System. Hope this Blog will teach a lot about oracle.

Oracle Bitmap Indexes Limitations/Restrictions
Oracle’s two major index types are Bitmap indexes and B-Tree indexes. B-Tree indexes are the regular type that OLTP systems make much use of, and bitmap indexes are a highly compressed index type that tends to be used primarily for data warehouses.

Characteristic of Bitmap Indexes

For columns with very few unique values (low cardinality)

Columns that have low cardinality are good candidates (if the cardinality of a column is 5 THEN ‘M’ ELSE ‘F’ END


Test case 1:
Update Sex on EmpID 6 ( Previous Value: M, New Value: M) and check update of sex on another M employee

Session 1:
UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET SEX = ‘M’ where EmpId = 6;

Session 2:
SQL> UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘M’ WHERE EmpId = 7;

1 row updated.

SQL> UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘F’ WHERE EmpId = 7;

1 row updated.

SQL> INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘F’);

1 row created.

SQL> INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);

1 row created.

It allowed all operations.

Test case 2:
Update Sex on EmpID 6 ( Previous Value: M; New Value: F)

Session 1:
UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘F’ WHERE EmpId = 6;

Session 2:
UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘M’ WHERE EmpId = 7;
This statement got executed.

INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘F’);
This statement hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘F’ WHERE EmpId = 7;
This statement hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);
This statement hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

Test case 3:
Insert new employee with Sex M

Session 1:
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);

Session 2:
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘F’);
It is allowed to execute.

INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);
New data insert with same Sex as in session 1. It hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘F’ WHERE EmpId = 7;
Previous Sex of EmpId 7 was also M, when tried to change it to F, it hanged. It hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

UPDATE Bitmap_Demo SET Sex = ‘M’ WHERE EmpId = 11;
Previous Sex of EmpId 11 was also F, when tried to change it to M, it hanged. It hanged and waited for ROLLBACK, COMMIT operation on Session1.

Test Case 4:
Insert both sex in both sessions: DEADLOCK
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);
1 row created.

Session 2:
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘F’);
1 row created.

Session 1:
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘F’);
…… waiting ……

Session 2:
INSERT INTO Bitmap_Demo VALUES(emp_btmp.NEXTVAL, ‘M’);
…… waiting ……

Session 1: Immediately after execution of insert M in session 2, error prompt on Session 1
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00060: deadlock detected while waiting for resource

This clarified that we should never create BITMAP index on table/columns which are updated frequently like in OLTP applications with multi-user environment.

Welcome to the ODES scikit documentation!
The ODES scikit provides access to Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) solvers and Differential Algebraic Equation (DAE) solvers not included in scipy. A convenience function scikits.odes.odeint.odeint() is available for fast and fire and forget integration. Object oriented class solvers scikits.odes.ode.ode and scikits.odes.dae.dae are available for fine control. Finally, the low levels solvers are also directly exposed for specialised needs.

Panopticlick: Is your browser safe against tracking?

Panopticlick: Is your browser safe against tracking?

Is your browser safe against tracking?

When you visit a website, online trackers and the site itself may be able to identify you – even if you’ve installed software to protect yourself. It’s possible to configure your browser to thwart tracking, but many people don’t know how.

Panopticlick will analyze how well your browser and add-ons protect you against online tracking techniques. We’ll also see if your system is uniquely configured—and thus identifiable—even if you are using privacy-protective software. However, we only do so with your explicit consent, through the TEST ME button below.
Test me
Test with a real tracking company what’s this?

Only anonymous data will be collected through this site.

Panopticlick is a research project of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. EFF operates Panopticlick in the United States, which may not provide as much privacy protection as your home country. Panopticlick is part of an effort to illustrate the problem with tracking techniques, and help get stronger privacy protections for everyone. Learn more.

The Disinformation Report

In late 2017, ahead of a series of Congressional hearings, Facebook, Twitter, and Alphabet each turned over a data set containing text, images, videos, and other content that they attributed to the Internet Research Agency. I led one of two teams that investigated that data set. This is the analysis, as provided to the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
