About Log Buffer

Current Edition: Log Buffer #215

Log Buffer is the DBA community’s Carnival of the Vanities-style blog of blogs about the database world. It is the place DBAs and others interested in databases come to read and write the news of what their colleagues around the world are working on—how they’re solving problems, using their skills, and what they’re thinking about.

It’s not about Pythian and our opinions. In fact, we invite you to write and host your own Log Buffers on your own blogs, and we’ll link to them. That’s how Carnival of the Vanities works.

Here are some other pages, to give you a better picture of how this works.

You may also subscribe to the Log Buffer Feed.

Log Buffer is published every Friday afternoon at approximately noon Eastern US time.
