Log Buffer #200, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs
Aug 20, 2010 / By Vanessa Simmons
Hello, and welcome to Log Buffer, a weekly blog about happenings in the database industry. Today is a celebration of the 200th edition of Log Buffer, and we’d like to give a special shout out to all of our guests hosts over the past 4 plus years. Their contributions have been invaluable in helping to grow Log Buffer into the community source of favorite database-related blog posts that it is today.
We’ve come a long way since our inaugural issue, Log Buffer #1, published July 14, 2006. This week enjoy mix of contributed links and the latest posts from past contributors.
Mart Rittman (Log Buffer #11) reminds everyone that OBIEE 11gR1 is available for download. His colleague, Venkatakrishnan J follows up with posts on a few new and important features including reporting on CLOBs – Lookups, map views – integration with Mapviewer, handling double columns – ID/description interoperability, lookup tables – sparse and dense lookups and vertical clustering.
Lewis Cunningham (Log Buffer #32) notes that the call for abstracts is open for ODTUG/Kaleidoscope 2011. Submission deadline is October 26, 2010. He also talks about a problem with success and offers good advice to make sure you’re not getting “crusty”.
Coskan Gundgobar (Log Buffer #49) responds to a slow system waiting on library cache lock and credits Tanel Poder’s scripts as the solution.
Steve Karam, the Oracle Alchemist reports strange behaviour with MEMORY_TARGET.
While a few have fallen off the map, it’s nice to see many members of our database blogging community still going strong.
