Every time I have had the pleasure of attending Oracle Open World, I have discovered a plethora of technical heavy-weights from all over the world in attendance. I enjoy meeting and shmoozing with these people almost as much as absorbing the technical content of the show itself. Many of my Pythian colleagues are presenting at OOW12 and thereby making this fine company AND themselves more renowned in the Oracle tech arena:
There’s a known bug, 7306820 “ORA-7445 [krhahw] / ORA-27090 during file header read. Instance may crash”, but this bug is fixed in 220.127.116.11, and this database is running 18.104.22.168. And on top of that, it’s an Exadata system, so I/O to storage servers goes over the InfiniBand network rather than using async I/O (AIO) calls.
I was thumbing through the photos in my iPhone from my Melbourne trip of August, where I went to present two sessions on Exadata in Insync12 from Pythian. I spent couple of hours on first and last day in sight-seeing or should I say my iPhone did the sight-seeing, and I nursed him. As I was going through the photos, I realized I was kind of watching those places first time. There were many things which were present in the photos, but I never saw them with my own eyes while walking or traveling in the trams or cabs.
Thank you to all who attended our Open House last night to help us celebrate Pythian’s 15th Anniversary. It was a great night! Thank you to all those who helped make it happen. Check out a few highlights from the evening:
With the summer approaching in Australia and Winter making inroads in Canada, the contrasts are also vivid in the blog posts of Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. Relishing this distinguished medley, Log Buffer Edition is blossoming with new blog posts in Log Buffer #286.
Today, I had some bit of fun and created a micro-web service as a one-liner. But then I thought that using almost 70 characters for a web service was awfully long-winded. Surely there was a way to make our Dancer more efficient. But how? How about… by getting a MC involved?
If you remember, I posted some tips about troubleshooting Link Server issue for Oracle earlier. Today I will be posting one more tip to the list aka extending Troubleshooting Oracle Link Server.
Recently we had a situation where in customer have asked us to move Master Database from Local Drive to SAN drive, I have outlined the steps for the task:
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading IOUG community. One of the area the user group is pursuing all the time is finding the new speakers and that takes some part of convincing the community members to actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
In honour of our fifteenth anniversary, I have assembled a few nostalgic items from our earliest years in business.
