Indexing, Hotsos, Optimizer, JavaScript, PeopleSoft, EBS, RPM


As is often the case, Richard Foote has a posting at his Oracle blog that gives some great insights on indexing, specifically fragmentation and duplicate entries.

Speaking of indexing, Mark Rittman at the Rittman Mead Consulting blog has a great article on bitmap indexes with some links to further reading.


The Striving for Optimal Performance blog reminds us that March of 2009 is on the horizon, that time of the year when all the performance gurus converge on Dallas for the Hotsos symposium. That's why that week is known as 'slow DB week'.

Optimizer Modes

First_rows_n for an OLTP system or all_rows? Which do we use for our Oracle optimizer? It's one of those great ontological questions like dry rubbed ribs or sauce (or both)? Well, Jonathan Lewis has some incite at his Oracle Scratchpad blog. I haven't linked to his blog in a while, so you may want to read down through some of the other postings, which are always top quality (like this posting on PX Buffer, with lots of grotty internal details).


A good tip on saving lots of time when working on a JavaScript local file over at Tyler Muth's blog.


The PeopleSoft Tipster blog gives us a glance at what the PeopleTools 8.5 future holds for us: Features!

And if you have some time to fill and really yearn to virtually install PeopleSoft the PSST0101 blog has the series for you.


Gareth Roberts over at the In Depth Apps - Oracle eBusiness Suite blog shows us how to turn loose Greasemonkey on your EBS homepage. He has a video, but I couldn't see any monkeys at all.


Alejandro Vargas brings us the good news that the Oracle validated RPM for Linux is available. Just add water and it will puff up like one of those little sponge dinosaurs, rearing up into a ferocious RAC-ready server.
