Sky’s the limit for the database bloggers. They are producing awesome rants in Oracle, fabulous ramblings in MySQL, and fantastic views in SQL Server, and this Log Buffer Edition, very proudly covers all that in Log Buffer #303. Enjoy.
I recently helped setup an Exadata X2-8 Database Machine with the latest version of OEM Cloud Countrol (184.108.40.206). A few documents do exist for this process. However I found a few inconsistencies and problems; I think the existing documents I found were written on older versions of OEM and older versions of the tools. I’m publishing my final procedure here with hopes that it helps you, but as always please cross-reference this with the appropriate documentation before doing anything in your own environment.
There is no great joys for the bloggers to mark the holiday season with some blistering and lightweight blog posts. This Log Buffer Edition in Log Buffer #302 shares that mirth and presents you with another medley of blogs.
DBD::Oracle v1.54 is on its way to CPAN. In this iteration, no new feature, but a large amount of bug fixes.
This year’s last log buffer edition looks at the marvelous and splendid blog posts of Oracle, SQL Server and the MySQL databases which promise to bring more and more next year. This Log Buffer #301 promises to be the anchor for yet another action packed blogging carnival next year.
Shortly before we all went on break for the holiday, Oracle announced the new BDA X3-2. Now I have time to properly sit down with a glass of fine scotch and dig into the details of what is included in the release. Turns out that there are quite a few changes packed in. We are getting new hardware, new Hadoop, new Connectors and new NoSQL. Tons of awesome features are included. Let’s get into it.
In this post, I’ll demonstrate how to deploy the pre-built Oracle VM templates to create a two-node 11gR2 RAC cluster in Oracle VirtualBox.
If you are reading this, it means that world moves on and somebody somewhere was wrong in predicting the end of it. The ageless Log Buffer Edition presents you yet again some cool blog posts just before the holiday season to top up your excitement. This Log Buffer #300 is as sweet as the holidays and as sumptuous as Aussie BBQ. Enjoy
I was recently looking at an issue where a large database server was running out of temp space. The issue had happened in the past, so the goal was to identify what had been causing the system to run out of temp. Although ORA-1555 messages will appear in the database alert log (with query text) when a query runs out of temporary space, they only talk about the query that was “unlucky” enough to be attempting to get space when the tablespace was full, not who was using the temp space.
