Oracle Priority Service Infogram for this Week: 04-MAY-2011

Upgrade Advisors Page

This is a great page to include in favorites over at MOS:

Oracle Support Upgrade Advisors (Doc ID 250.1)

And here are a few specific links to work with on various EBS products:

12.1.3 FIN RPL(AP)





RDBMS Internals

Tanel Poder brings us yet another extremely useful discussion of things internal:

Oracle hidden costs revealed, part 1 – Does a batch job run faster when executed locally?

And for those of you who prefer staying several layers down the stack in starting an investigation (or pursuing it to its logical end), the Latch, mutex and beyond blog dives into the depths of “Cursor: pin S” mutex contention testcase and diagnostics tools.


Middleware magic is fast becoming a favorite blog of mine. Here's another useful posting from them:
Setting-up a WebLogic Cluster that spans Multiple Machines


A blog that has long been established as a favorite is Rittman Mead Consulting, who bring us this item in a series from their recent archives: Oracle BI EE 11g – Decoding Essbase Connectivity – Part 5 – Security.

Oracle and the iPad

Since I do a major portion of the link gathering for the Infogram on an iPad, this kind of article over at Betanews catches my eye: Oracle updates Business Intelligence with iPad in mind


The April issue of the MySQL newsletter is viewable on the Web here: MySQL Newsletter for April 2011.

Sun, Exadata and OS

A few nice items wandering the blogosphere in the realm of Sun, first off, as the Oracle Technology Network Blog (aka TechBlog) tells us, OTN is holding its first Sysadmin Day.

There's a new whitepaper out for you to peruse: Protecting Oracle Exadata with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance: Configuration Best Practices.

And if you are not exhausted by all the surfing from the OTN blog and the technical details of that whitepaper, you can get a sizable chunk of a book on DTrace here: Dtrace: Dynamic Tracing in Oracle Solaris, Mac OS X and FreeBSD.

From Tom Kyte

Tom Kyte recommends a tool produced by a blogger we often link to here, Tyler Muth. He has good things to say about his AWR Formatter. Also of interest is a positive review on the book Expert Oracle Applications Express. It isn't out yet, but you can place pre-orders. Read all about 'em at Tom Kyte's blog.
