Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 10-AUG-2011


Kevin Closson, one of our long-time favorite bloggers, cuts through some of the forming fog around Exadata with this posting: Exadata: It’s The World’s Fastest Database Machine And The Best For Oracle Database – Part I. Do As I Say, Not As I Do!

...and speaking of favorite bloggers on Oracle, there is the start of much anticipated series from Tanel Poder on Exadata here: Are you getting the most out of your Exadata performance? Part 1.


Oracle's Linux Blog announced that: Oracle Linux 5 update 7 is on edelivery.


Now if only they could tell me how to get iTunes to not produce scads of music duplicates everytime I change out an Apple device.

The Upgrade your Database - NOW! blog has some words of wisdom on: DBMS_SCHEDULER jobs stuck after upgrade to 11.2? Check this parameter!

Sokrates on Oracle discusses ORA-8103s, with pointers to Tanel Poder's invaluable blog.

I don't think we linked to this series on index organized tables at Martin Widlake's Yet Another Oracle Blog previously, so better late than never: IOT Part 4 – Greatly Boosting Buffer Cache Efficiency.

Interested in Oracle Solaris 11 Express? Here's a good place to start: First Steps with Oracle Solaris 11 Express.


Online Apps DBA has an article on: How to reset Lost Oracle WebLogic Password for Fusion Middleware Applications. I want to stress, as I often do, that you always want to test on other systems before moving to prod and, in an operation that may involve multitiered security changes as one often encounters in Fusion and WLS, it doesn't hurt to get Oracle Support involved if you have any questions or doubts whatsoever.

Did you know there's a weekly WLS update over at the The WebLogic Server Blog? Here's the latest: WebLogic Weekly for August 1st, 2011 - New exam, Exalogic go-live and more.


As we announced previously, Java 7 is out, and people are beginning to identify some of the features they like best in it, like this posting over at 7 new cool features in Java 7.


Can't sleep nights wondering what's in all those PeopleSoft tables? Yeah, thought so. Still, this posting at Peoplesoft /Oracle tips points out a handy reference: PeopleTools Table Reference.


A good reminder on OBIEE and Websphere in this posting from Rittman Mead Consulting: OBIEE 11g Statement of Direction for IBM Websphere.
