It is an industry norm, supported by analyst researches, that blogs are the best informal medium to share the information. This unique medium provides readers with increased leverage in negotiating the hard turns in their technological lives. Log Buffer makes that leverage more powerful.
This is a short blog post on how one can prove that a particular partition of the table or index is accessed by a specific query.
A little while ago I blogged about (and open sourced) an Impala-powered soccer visualization demo, designed to demonstrate just how responsive Impala queries can be. Since not everyone has the time or resources to run the project themselves, we’ve decided to host it ourselves on an EC2 instance.
Like many previous IOUG/OAUG/Quest shows, Pythian will be in Denver next week!
There’s a rare event happening next week: All three of Pythian’s Oracle Apps tech leads will be in the same place. Vasu Balla, Maris Elsins, and recently-minted Oracle Ace Director Yury Velikanov will all be at Collab 13 this year. Since we’re a globally distributed, round-the-clock team, this is not something that can happen very often.
First, the most important advice I can give you is to relax and have FUN!
Building a secure Hadoop cluster requires protecting a number of services which comprise Hadoop infrastructure.
