I returned from AUSOUG conference in Perth (Australia) just last week. This blog is my report from the conference for the days 0 and 1.
While Oracle does supply a list of RPMs that must be installed on a Linux system, that information does not help you in determining which Oracle files are dependent on the RPMs in question. If the list of RPMs to be updated is small, it may even be that that few, if any of the Oracle files on a server may be affected. Here’s how that can be determined.
The presentation deadline for UKOUG is 8 days away. I have been madly preparing for 2 presentations, one on my best friend (rman) and the other on my co-best friend (the physical standby). Both of these topics have been perennial favourites for me and many of my attendees. I find with both of these items, there is always something more to learn.
One of the most nice thing about the newer versions of Oracle is the advent of ASH and AWR as they provide awesome diagnostic information. Many customers at the Pythian use Real Application Cluster and having a cluster wide AWR report by using awrgrpt.sql script is very handy.
If you haven’t considered attending the AUSOUG conference in Perth yet, you definitely should! Out of 50 sessions I counted 21 to be presented by Oracle ACEs and Oracle ACE Directors; 8 by Oracle employees and at least 2 by Oracle Certified Masters! Briefly looking though the conference program I would like to suggest that you consider sessions from the following speakers.
Dancer::Plugin::Cache::CHI v1.2.0 has hit CPAN a few days ago. In that release, four new goodies have appeared. Here’s a look at them.
Automatic degree of parallelism, or Auto DOP, is a new feature in 11gR2 that promises to help manage systems where large subset of the workload runs with parallel processing. In this post I’ll introduce the feature and give very useful tips I got from Oracle’s Real World Performance expert Greg Rahn on how to use it. So this is worth reading even if you are familiar with the feature.
This is a short blog post to give you my Apps DBA takeaway from Oracle OpenWorld 2011 in the context of Oracle Fusion Applications (new Oracle ERP/CRM/…+ product).
A bit more than a week passed since most of us who been part of the OpenWorld are back from San Francisco. It is about time to start sharing stories on how it went for each of us. I must admit that it happened to be a very stressful OpenWorld for me personally. I am recovering from it slowly. On the positive side I met so many great people, discovered how supportive people are and how great is to be a part of the Pythian Team! Let’s talk about how my 2 presentations went at Oracle OpenWorld 2011.
‘m going to be presenting two of my OOW11 sessions at the Toronto Oracle User Group’s DD Day. I’m going to be presenting two sessions, Is Oracle Exadata for You? Starring Roles for the Best Technology, and Under the Hood of Oracle ASM: Failability Analysis.
