How to Access Oracle GridControl 10.2 Agents via HTTPS/Port 443

I’m a Linux fan, and when it comes to specific problems, I’m afraid not all operating systems are equally armed. Enabling a specific user to listen on a port below 1024 is one of these problems that was solved for years with various approaches. So you may think, obviously you can access the GridControl 10.2 agent on Linux with HTTPS only, on port 443! And obviously you can — but…

ORADEBUG TRACE UKOUG_EVENING STATE DUMP, DAY 1

Well, this was a nice Oracle Bloggers Meetup this year. It was less crowded compare to last year which is a bit surprising if you think about it — there are more and more Oracle bloggers around. On the other hand, it let me focus more talking to participants of Oracle blogosphere and other social networking Oracle related crowd and I met quite a few new faces.

SELECT * FROM V$UKOUG WHERE DAY BETWEEN ’03-DEC-07′ and ’04-DEC-07′;

Tom Kyte’s keynote on 11g (original OOW version is here) started with a poll — out of few hundred people there were 13 that worked with Oracle 4, 2 – with Oracle 3 and no one working with Oracle version 2 (version 1 didn’t exist as we all know now). Interesting that since 1994 we had new release every year on average — impressive pace. The next session was from Tom Dale — “Virtualization in Production”, then scaling 6 node RAC cluster at CERN by Eric Grancher and Anton Topurov, my last session of the day was Joel Goodman’s — Oracle 10g: RAC Tuning Tips. I’m well rested now and it’s important as I won’t get much sleep this night and could fall asleep during my own presentation tomorrow. Stay tuned!

I have arrived in Sydney!!

I have arrived in Sydney!! I have been in Sydney for a few days now. I was staying at Robert Menzies College. I was staying there because I needed to be at MacQuarrie yesterday morning for my LSAT exam. No matter how much you prepare for the LSAT, it is a tough exam. So my day consisted of writing a tough exam and then being escorted around town by two complete strangers. It reminds me of the famous quote (from the movie A Streetcar Named Desire, which I have never seen, but remember the quote). . . I have always depended on the kindness of strangers. Well that certainly was my case yesterday!!

Getting Ready for UKOUG 07 in Birmingham

Christo Kutrovsky and me arrived in Birmingham today – just 6+ hours direct flight from Ottawa to London and two and a half hours on the bus – not too bad compare to 30+ hours travel from Melbourne to Ottawa earlier this week. I ‘m really tired now and I still need to tighten up my presentation before I can go and meet few Oracle geek at the nearest pub but I’ll probably take couple hours of sleep. Unlike some slackers I have my own preliminary agenda for the first day.

Oracle 11g Result Cache Tested on Eight-Way Itanium

This will be the final post in my series on Result Caches. In my previous article, I had already got almost everything. Almost — four CPUs (cores) were still not enough to saturate the single latch. As you’ve probably already guessed, today we are going with an eight-way test. Please note that today’s numbers are different since I’m using an entirely different hardware platform. While the four-way tests were done on 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad box, today’s eight-way tests were done using four dual core Itanium 2 CPUs running at 1.1GHz. Let’s take a look at the results…

AUSOUG – Melbourne Day 2

The first session I attended this morning was “Creating a data grid using Oracle Coherence. It was “hands-on”, so we were supposed to bring our laptops to install software and he was going to do demos. NO ONE in the room brought their laptop. In the afternoon I went to Ramesh Naidu’s presentation on Cluster-wide monitoring for RAC. It covered all the components in a RAC Cluster that need monitoring and the importance of doing so, including Cluster services, ASM, network and database.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is Over

The second, and the last, day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is over. I had a quick chance to peak into Steve Lemme’s presentation on CA approach for solving an IT management dilemma. Instead of keynote and the following presentation, I paid a visit to exhibitors and spoke to practically every exhibitor. It turned out that some of them knew or heard about Pythian which was quite pleasing to hear.
