Oracle Infogram This WeeK: CPU, Hyperion, PeopleSoft, RDBMS, Linux and VM, ECM, Sun, WLS, Oracle Support


The January Critical Patch Update is available. Read all about it here at the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:

Critical Patch Update for January 2011 Now Available


Boy does this program linked from Cameron's Blog For Essbase Hackers look like a handy tool for Essbase users. As with all outside our firewall, please test carefully (yeah, well, alright, test our stuff too.): Introducing Data Detective


From the PeopleSoft Technology comes this announcement: New version of the PSFT HCM 9.1 OVM Template


An interesting blog I somehow didn't notice before is Oracle database internals by Riyaj. Here's a sample: Books and presentations

From our Oracle Luxembourg XPS on Database team comes this really techie article on Clusterware 11gR2 – Setting up an Active/Passive failover configuration.

Perhaps it's McGyver syndrome, but I somehow picture them doing this in their garage using a set of modified Palm Pilots networked to use the magnetron from an old microwave to calibrate the cluster. The technical challenge is: How to keep production up while using the cluster to nuke a burritto?

Someone else to join the crowd around the microwave is Porus Homi Havewala, author of this article on how to Provision Your Oracle RAC Systems Using Oracle Enterprise Manager over at Technet.

Linux and VM

We're doing some very exciting things with the combined force of hardware, OS, and software. This TechCast Live on Linux and Virtualization with Wim Coekaerts, SVP Linux Engineering is well worth your time.


The Oracle ECM Alerts - Product News & Information blog lets us know that Oracle Enterprise Content Management 11gR1 Patch Set 3 has been Released.


Follow the path from Oracle Technology Network Blog (aka TechBlog) to the OTN Garage blog to find out more about the status and location of Sun Microsystems documentation.


At the WebLogic Server blog you might expect to hear about something like WebLogic Server 10.3.4 Released - Key APIs of Java EE 6 and More. Well, you're right. Please give it a read.

Oracle Support

I know that creating an SR can be a bit frustrating at times, especially when the situation is very critical and you don't really want to spend a bunch of time dotting i's and crossing t's under the angry glare of an executive with a down server, but please take the extra moment to fill out the subcomponent field. Not only will it help get the SR triaged to the right team more reliably, but it will generate better statistics for response time within our system.
