After an in place upgrade of SQL server 2005 to SQL server 2008 R2 , I tried to open SQL errorlog from Management> SQL server logs but I got the following error. Here’s how I fixed it.
A simple example of BBCode would be to make some text bold , this can be simply written like that [b]Bold Text[/b] or italic [i]italic text[/i]. In HTML , this can be done by font tags (deprecated in newer HTML versions) or CSS text properties. I tell you what! I’m writing this blog and I’m even using some BBCode tags to format text.
Automatic degree of parallelism, or Auto DOP, is a new feature in 11gR2 that promises to help manage systems where large subset of the workload runs with parallel processing. In this post I’ll introduce the feature and give very useful tips I got from Oracle’s Real World Performance expert Greg Rahn on how to use it. So this is worth reading even if you are familiar with the feature.
This is a short blog post to give you my Apps DBA takeaway from Oracle OpenWorld 2011 in the context of Oracle Fusion Applications (new Oracle ERP/CRM/…+ product).

A few days ago I was asked to estimate how much space needed to be added to the ASM diskgroup to handle the database growth for one year without additional need of adding disks. To do this I needed to calculate acceleration and assuming the acceleration stays the same I would be able to calculate the “distance” or (how much the DB would grow in one year). I used the following formulas…
There has been some chatter at Oracle Open World (OOW) about the next release of the database. They will be calling it Oracle Database 12c (for Cloud) and it is expected in the 16-18 month timeframe from this version of OOW.
