Log Buffer #301, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

This year’s last log buffer edition looks at the marvelous and splendid blog posts of Oracle, SQL Server and the MySQL databases which promise to bring more and more next year. This Log Buffer #301 promises to be the anchor for yet another action packed blogging carnival next year.

New Year, New Big Data Appliance

Shortly before we all went on break for the holiday, Oracle announced the new BDA X3-2. Now I have time to properly sit down with a glass of fine scotch and dig into the details of what is included in the release. Turns out that there are quite a few changes packed in. We are getting new hardware, new Hadoop, new Connectors and new NoSQL. Tons of awesome features are included. Let’s get into it.

Log Buffer #300, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

If you are reading this, it means that world moves on and somebody somewhere was wrong in predicting the end of it. The ageless Log Buffer Edition presents you yet again some cool blog posts just before the holiday season to top up your excitement. This Log Buffer #300 is as sweet as the holidays and as sumptuous as Aussie BBQ. Enjoy

Sleuthing for Temporary Space Spendthrifts

I was recently looking at an issue where a large database server was running out of temp space. The issue had happened in the past, so the goal was to identify what had been causing the system to run out of temp. Although ORA-1555 messages will appear in the database alert log (with query text) when a query runs out of temporary space, they only talk about the query that was “unlucky” enough to be attempting to get space when the tablespace was full, not who was using the temp space.
