Oracle Infogram This Week: Performance, Exadata, MOS, EBS, Linux, RDBMS,


I was helping a client this week with some performance problems and ran across a good source on using plan stability in 10g at the
Oracle related stuff blog: Plan stability in 10g - using existing cursors to create Stored Outlines and SQL profiles.

From the
Oraclue blog we have a reminder to take at look at 'Mr. Trace', former Oracle VP and guru of the mathematical/methodical approach to optimization, Cary Millsap.

Local Indexes

Jonathan Lewis has another installment on his series on Local Indexes at this
Oracle Scratchpad blog.


Some very useful info (and some constructive criticism) on the control interface for Exadata at Kerry Osborne's Oracle Blog: Cellcli Command Syntax – Top 10 List. Also on Kerry's blog, though more in the realm of performance, are several articles on SQL Profile. This is a technique I never used before, but after seeing a client use it tonight to resolve a major Sev 1 situation I am now a believer. Here is what Kerry's blog has on the subject.

MOS Listing

The Oracle BI By Bakboord blog regularly runs some useful updates of the latest MOS items. Here's one: Oracle MOS HTML Update 14112010


The latest from the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:

EBS R12 Sparse Mid-Tier Template for Oracle VM Now Available

Two New Options for Signing E-Business Suite JAR Files Now Available

11gR2 Database Certified with E-Business Suite

Using Physical Standby for EBS 12 Environments on 11g Databases

Oracle BPEL Certified with EBS 12 on IBM Linux on System z

Oracle Linux Blog

Oracle has a new Linux blog.


Arup Nanda maintains a great blog. He also maintains some really handy tools for other DBAs. Consider this one (remember to test thoroughly and all the usual due diligence, of course, as Arup says this is for educational purposes only):

Tool to Add Range Partitions Automatically to a Table

Also there at Arup's blog this week is a redirect in case you can't find the My Oracle New Features series we linked to some time ago here:

My Oracle New Features Series on OTN

Speaking of handy tools from renowned bloggers, Kevin Closson is Reintroducing SLB--The Silly Little Benchmark.
