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.
ew Year is the time to bid farewell to the old year and welcome the coming year. It is the time to remember the golden olden blog posts. It is the time for new beginnings and new starts in life, and of course for new blog posts. Bloggers in the database arena are also enjoying the festivities with full zeal and zest and this Log Buffer Edition, which is Log Buffer #251 covers just that. Happy Holidays.
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.
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!
I have experienced a handful of Oracle’s replication solutions as far back as version 5 of the database in the mid to late 1980’s. Will GoldenGate be the golden gate? If one ends up answering in the affirmative to most of the following questions, I think so.
Welcome to Log Biffer #249, the weekly review of database blogs.
I am doing RAC attack today at UKOUG as well as giving a 2-hour exert technical session at 11:25am. The show so far? Sweet!
For the final day of UKOUG there are quite a few Pythian presentations. Unfortunately a lot of them happen at the same time, so it won’t be possible to attend them all live.
On tap for Tuesday is a 2-hour master class from Michael Abbey, along with an all-day drop-in RAC attack workshop with Alex Gorbachev and the RAC SIG.
Another December has started and you know what it means right? It’s the Christmas time? NO! It’s time for UKOUG Technology and e-Business Suite 2011 conference! There are not many things that can make a passionate Apps DBA more excited than that. UKOUG Tech & eBS conferences are the only ones in Europe that have such a rich content for Application DBAs and this year it will not be different.
