This comes in the context of exporting and importing a warehouse, but it's really all about a bug involving index creation. Everything just goes peachy....and then the index creation drops from warp to impulse drive. Read about the experience at Marko Sutic's Oracle Blog: IMPDP creates indexes with parallel degree 1 during import.

Invisible Indexes and Exadata

We talked about the intriguing invisible index feature last week, here is an item on using it for Exadata at The Oracle Instructor: Invisible Indexes & Exadata. I definitely recommend looking into invisible indexes and testing them out so you are ready to use them if you run into a performance problem on prod and need to make some discreet changes that won't effect your business application.


Oracle's Security Inside Out blog fills us in on Shady RAT. We're not in Kansas any more, Toto. In fact, we might have spies on the system right now capturing intellectual property.
