OpenWord Suggest-a-Sessions @ Oracle Mix

There has been quite a bit written about Oracle Mix Voting (let me refer to it as OMV for short) this year and I don’t think I should waste your time restating any of this. What I wanted to do is to take a step back and try to list “stakeholders” of OMV.

Pythian Tools: Method R Profiler, MR Tools & MR Trace

With this blog post I’d like to start sharing a series of posts which I wanted to call “Pythian Recommended Tools”. After some thought, I decided to remove “recommended” Strictly speaking, this blog must have covered bunch of tools in the past but this time I’ll emphasize the tools that I really like and see widely used at Pythian. OK. Introduction is over.

Bandying Tickets from RT to GitHub Issues

As the new maintainer of DBD::Oracle, I’m trying to wrap my head around the 32 tickets currently open against it. Many tickets are platform-dependent, or appear for a specific version of Oracle. It would be fantastic to be able to tag the different tickets with those details, but alas CPAN’s RT doesn’t have tags..Fortunately, with the help of RT::Client::REST and Net::GitHub, it’s quite easy to export our tickets.

Oracle DBA: Do we need REDO statistics in V$SQL ?

Tom Kyte, Cary Millsap, Steven Feuerstein hold a Database Guru Panel at #Kscope 11’s conference organized by ODTUG. I had a great opportunity to not just watch the Live Stream (you can see the recorded version HERE) but also ASK questions..One of the questions was related to UNDO/REDO statistics. I think that it was a bit of challenge to define the question precisely having just 140 Twitter characters and therefore I decided to share my question here, give a bit of background and ask you “What is your opinion?”

Oracle Fusion Applications 11G: The new ERP era begins!

Oracle Fusion Applications 11G is now available! You can get the installation from the Oracle E-Delivery site in no time. This is the moment many of us have been waiting for, if not for many years then for many months for sure. Keeping in mind the amount of effort Oracle have invested in the product and the fact that the product is going to be a flagship ERP system on the market for at least next 10 years the most important thing is to get an access to the documentation. For me to understand the concepts and fundamental principals of the product is much more important than getting it installed ASAP. Let’s get into it.

Applying External Timing Data to Untimed Events

If you are familiar with debugging ssh connections you are probably familiar with the ‘-v’ option that directs ssh to output verbose comments stating which operation is currently taking place.

Log Buffer #229, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

Blogs are not just yet another piece of writing. They are the manifestation of passion, perfection and purity of love towards the community. Bloggers take immense pride in sharing what they know or want to know in their blog posts, and that enables the community to respond by learning or by teaching. Log Buffer is a way to appreciate this passion, and Log Buffer #229 is yet another example of that.
