March of bloggers goes on and so is the unstoppable production of the blog posts. It’s getting more exciting week after week watching the new and old bloggers adding spice to the database blogosphere. This edition of Log Buffer brings some of the simmering and scintillating posts from around the globe in Log Buffer #225.
No, this isn’t a re-post of my earlier blog about bug 1233183.1. We’ve found a fun new bug that seems to be specific to our poor standalone ASM instances when upgrading from Oracle Grid Infrastructure 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11.
We have a client that runs an application that, for whatever reasons, does NOT like daylight saving time. For that reason, the Oracle server is kept in Eastern Standard Time and does not change with the rest of the eastern United States when DST begins and ends every year. They accomplish this with a custom /etc/localtime file. However, they left /etc/sysconfig/clock set to “TZ=America/New_York,” which would prove fateful as I shall point out.
Summer’s here, and that means it’s time to start thinking about Oracle OpenWorld 2011. Pythian’s plans are well underway. We have been busily planning since March, have submitted a number of abstracts on all sorts of topics: Exadata, ASM, GoldenGate, ADR, ASM, many based on real world experiences with Pythian clients. Some have been accepted, but we’re hoping for a few more and we’re asking Pythian fans to vote for our sessions on Oracle Mix.
I was working on a task where I had to confirm if the direct IO is in use or not. filesystem_io_option database parameter was set to “DIRECTIO” to make use of directio. Initially I was looking for same kind of memory structures in Solaris but could not find so ( bad luck :( ) and so used basic tracing using truss.First I logged into database and check the filesystem parameter ( Changed the name of the database and host :) )
