Welcome the the 85th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs. Here we go!
I gave this talk covering the different types of memory, how to monitor memory, and how to optimally use it with Oracle at the UKOUG, I have since received requests to post the slides online. Instead of just posting the PowerPoint I took some time to give the presentation again (internally here at Pythian) and this time we recorded the session and are posting it in a variety of formats. This is a bit of a departure from the typical Pythian Goodies, in that it is scripted, and there is a lot of content here in the whitepaper.
In this new installment of Pythian Goodies Doug Burns discusses Parallel Basics. This video is a good introduction to using Oracle Parallel features and most importantly, what problems you may have with it.

On Friday, I announced the Pythian Goodies project, and now here it is, the very first video of the series. The topic is “Flash Recovery Area,” and how can it make your life easier.
I’ve been wondering for a while now how best to transfer knowledge efficiently and in a fun way. Presentations are good, but they require a lot of effort in preparation and research, and they are not as interactive as they could be when the group is smaller. To answer some of these issues, I would like to introduce you to Pythian Goodies. What is a Pythian Goody session you ask? Find out here.
