RAC Attack at Oracle OpenWorld

Along comes the Oracle RAC Special Interest Group (SIG) which is appearing at a conference near you. At Oracle Open World 2012, RAC SIG personnel will be on-hand running RAC Attack – a hands-on lab where you can build a cluster on your Windows, MAC, or Linux personal computer. This is a dream come true. I first did RAC Attack at the UKOUG show in Birmingham last December. I am not anywhere close to being a RAC expert but I have rolled my sleeves up and got into the technology. Do not miss this opportunity at Oracle Open World next week in San Francisco

Pythian at OOW12

Every time I have had the pleasure of attending Oracle Open World, I have discovered a plethora of technical heavy-weights from all over the world in attendance.

Many of my Pythian colleagues are presenting at OOW12 and thereby making this fine company AND themselves more renowned in the Oracle tech arena:

Troubleshooting ORA-27090 Async I/O Errors with Systemtap

There’s a known bug, 7306820 “ORA-7445 [krhahw] / ORA-27090 during file header read. Instances may crash, but this bug is fixed in 11.2.0.1, and this database is running 11.2.0.3. And on top of that, it’s an Exadata system, so I/O to storage servers goes over the InfiniBand network rather than using async I/O (AIO) calls.

IOUG Collaborate 2013 — Call for Speakers Informational Webinar

As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading the IOUG community. One of the areas the user group is pursuing all the time is finding new speakers, and it takes a lot of convincing before community members actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.

Log Buffer #285, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

If the basics are right, then the foundation is more likely to be solid, and the growth on that foundation is almost sure to follow the progressive path. Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL bloggers are striving hard to set the basics of technology in order to help lay a sound foundation for the readers so that they can grow leaps and bounds in the right direction. This Log Buffer Edition covers just that.
