Off to the UKOUG general session then a fun-filled day of presentations. It wraps up later this afternoon with my rman best practices event at 5:45pm.
I was just looking at an Exadata X2-2 ordering document and noticed that it included 144GB of RAM. The sales rep pointed at the Exadata X2-2 datasheet and showed the 96GB to 144GB memory expansion option.
I would like to share some of my tips/notes about patching Oracle Exadata, based on my experiences and not less important, research and googling.
In this blog, I am going to demonstrate how we can use the wait event category sqlos.wait_info* to track the wait resources the queries running in a particular session undergo.
My colleages and I want to set up a LAN radio station, so that we can all groove to the same soundtrack. To make things interesting, we want to be able to dynamically add songs to the playlist. From any machine. And since I don’t really have time to do something like that, I’m setting myself a deadline of one evening to get it running. Got it? Good. For it’s time to rip our shirts. And dance the Haka.
Simple messages are the most powerful. Keep it simple is the advice given by top technologists. One reason why blogs are extremely popular is their simplicity. This simplicity comes from the shortness and focus of the message of the blog. This Log Buffer Edition collects some simple yet powerful blog posts for you in Log Buffer #248.
My good friend (and personal hero) Cary Millsap is doing a series of one day classes around the world — Mastering Oracle Trace Data. One of them is conveniently scheduled in Birmingham Thursday next week right after the UKOUG Conference.
I have decided to share with you some of the real life examples of why sometimes V$ views may hide real resources utilization numbers. As AWR and STATSPACK (previous version of AWR) as based on V$ views those may reflect the wrong statistics as results of the issues I am going to discuss in this blog post.
anticipate seeing people from all over the continent at UKOUG. The attendance over the past few years has been growing and nothing short of astounding. I am giving two papers at the show … one on a dear friend of us all called rman and the other on a close second … the physical standby. For me, even in the midst of emerging technology solutions, there’s still nothing like the old-fashioned Oracle CORE database arena.
Thanksgiving is here and the circular chain of thankfulness is going on. Clients are thankful that they have applications, applications are thankful to their databases, database are thankful to their DBAs, and DBAs are thankful to clients. And they all are thankful that there is weekly Log Buffer Edition, of which the latest is Log Buffer #247. :)
