The forwarded case didn’t have many details. Its a 9i system that started experiencing ORA-4031 errors sporadically over the last few weeks. Marc suggested using R to explore how the various SGA components changed sizes over the last few weeks and see whether we can find any interesting trends that can indicate memory leaks. So we did just that. The first step is to get the actual data out of the system, and we used the following query
The pièce de résistance is Dist::Zilla::Plugin::NextVersion::Semantic which I had promised to Mike Doherty a long time ago. In a nutshell, the plugin examines the changes of the upcoming release and increases the version according to the rules of semantic versioning.
