In this post I quickly cover the new features in SQL Server RC0 setup.
How much memory does my Oracle instance use? How much memory do my database connections use? These are questions that can help with capacity planning of your server’s Physical and Virtual memory. There are several write ups out there on the web that attempt to address these questions. From what I could gather from them, there is only one truly good way to tell exactly how much memory is currently in use by an oracle instance, as well as the average memory usage for oracle dedicated connection processes. I explain it here.
In this post I’ll Briefly cover the changes to SQL Server licencing which happened in two areas, edition changes and licensing changes. Lets get started.

Tis the season to be fearless in blogging and read the blogs around the database globe. To make your foray in intrepid world of database blogs, this Log Buffer Edition compiles some of the most interesting posts in this Log Buffer #250.
Say hello to Template::Caribou. The goal of that new template system? Steal or be inspired by a maximal amount of Template::Declare features, while using Moose as the core engine. For the rest of this blog entry, I’ll take you on a tour of that basic sample use, peeling the system from the outside in, hoping that the glitter of the outer layers will soften the shocks of the abominations of the inner mechanisms.
I had to refresh my knowledge on how InnoDB threads queue works the other day when debugging activity spikes on one of the customer’s production system and while I had general idea about InnoDB kernel and queue, thread concurrency and queue join delays I didn’t have a complete model of how InnoDB concurrency control works. So I started from manual…
I have been working on my game recently and wanted to check out how to dig some caves. Without readily available software to do my excavations, I decided to give it a shot myself. To come up with an algorithm to create a decent dungeon or cave system was the hard part. At the end, I went with a very simple recipe that seems to gives fair results.
This year, there were ten Pythian folks attending UKOUG Conference and we did twelve sessions including multiple presentations, masterclass, RAC Attack workshop, round-table and 10 minutes OakTalk. I think it’s the record number of session Pythian folks did at a single UKOUG conference and the record number of Pythian peeps attending. A dozen of Pythian people in Europe and now even a sales guy in the UK mean that Pythian penetration in the UK database services business is close to the infliction point. This is ultimately a good news!
Somebody at $work asked me how I use Git to deploy stuff, probably working under the false hypothesis that wisdom is in any way, shape or form affiliated with yours truly. The fool…Yet, it is true that I had my share of tinkering with Git, and that I might have gleaned from my experience. So I sent him a couple of links leading to more wisdom-certified sources. They are listed at the end of this blog entry; if you have more good articles/blog posts that you’d like to add to the pile, please don’t be shy and mention them in the comments. But I can’t just stop there, really. So, if you allow me, I’ll dust off the good ol’ soap-box, hop on it, and share my thoughts on the subject.
