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.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne — the Start of Day Two

Regardless of my unfortunate early wake up, the day started great. I spent a couple hours reviewing and tightening up my block change tracking presentation. Unfortunately, just before the beginning I realized that one animated slide was completely screwed up and I wasn’t able to fix it on time so I apologize to the audience once again — it will be uploaded fixed. Other than that screwed up slide, the presentation went very well.

The First Day in Melbourne

I’ve got up at 6:30 today (it becomes a bad habit) because my phone started to make annoying sounds at 5:45 — it’s way too clever about meeting reminders and timezone-aware. OK. Time to move now — the second day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is about to start…

Melbourne and AUSOUG

Yesterday morning my co-worker, Alex Gorbachev, arrived from Sydney. We went together to sight-see around the city. We stopped off and got a map of Melbourne and made our way to Bourke Street for lunch. Next we headed to the large cathedral. It was HUGE and glorious and open to the public. Then we got on the tram system and headed to the botanical gardens. We went to China town for dinner last night, where Alex had real ( and real hot ) chinese food. A combination pot of some sort.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne – My Preliminary Schedule

While I have another blog post in drafts, I should quickly update on the sessions I’m going to visit in the next two days of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne. I arrived to Melbourne today and I took Babette for a walk. This tour deserve a separate entry so I postpone it until I have more time to empty my camera and sort it out so back to the schedule…

My Final Day in Perth

Connor McDonald picked me up at the hotel and took me to some local lake to see the local fauna and flora. Afterwards, we sat on the beach and chatted for a while soaking up sun. We swung by Connor’s place after where Gillian made me an awesome avacado, ham, cheese and tomato sandwich on fresh home-made bread. The famous Max McDonald decided he would like to see me off at the airport and he came for the drive. The Perth Airport, is kinda like the old Ottawa airport used to be…only smaller.
