Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 17-AUG-2011


Over at the PeopleSoft Technology Blog this week there's a peek into the future: Related Content Framework--Great Things Happening.

Enterprise Computing

A couple of interesting posts from Kevin Closson of late, both of them looking back at the past while keeping up with the cutting edge of high powered systems of today:



At In Depth Apps - Oracle eBusiness Suite - Gareth Roberts we have some useful material on how to Track and Trace E-Business Suite Concurrent Request - EBS Logs, O/S Process IDs, Locks.

Over at the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog this week:


An overview of Oracle Audit Vault over at OracleApps Epicenter.

Performance (and how to maintain it, and your sanity)

Over at Coskan's Approach to Oracle there a really nice technical rundown on what can happen to your I/O when you move from 10.2 to 11.2 without enough of the right kind of testing: What happens, when you did not do a load test before release upgrades ?. The I/O display is a colorful picture, but pretty only in a very abstract sense. If it's your system, it's not pretty at all. And it's loud, with all those application managers and directors yelling at your over the phone and around your desk. Take home lesson: You can get some great improvements from upgrading the RDBMS, but you can also produce some really bad short term situations. Please test thoroughly! And yes, this may require a battle with some of the other divisions in your company, but if you can get across to them that it is precisely their interests at risk, they may wise up and give you the time and resources you need.


Okay, I don't know a whole lot about SOA, but the folks at A-Team - SOA sure do, and they want to tell us about Coherence in SOA Suite 11g.

Oracle Support

An outstanding listing of self-help (and help us help you) resources at Chris Warticki's Blog - Oracle Support: 8 Habits of Highly Effective Oracle Support Users.


Structured Data has a run down on: Sessions By OakTable Members.


Some interesting material over at a blog I haven't posted from before: iMERGE Group : Bhavik Fuletra : (OCE)


Education is expensive, but Stanford seems to be giving away a valuable course for techies for free: Introduction to Databases. I particularly recommend this kind of course for non-DBAs. Application developers often don't understand what the DB is capable of and try to stuff all the functions into the code, to the determinent of both. If they understand the logic of the relational model, etc., they can design and write better code.

Finally this week a link to Log Buffer #233, A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs, a blog with a similar links to the links format as the Infogram.
