Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 09-NOV-2011


The Infogram isn't a newsletter (perish the thought!), but there are a batch of good newsletters for our Oracle Support customers. Here are some samples in MOS:
  • Database Support Newsletter Note 230.1 (contains feature article SQLTXPLAIN (SQLT) - The tool for SQL Tuning analysis and more)
  • Enterprise Manager Support Newsletter Note 1363807.1 (contains feature article Enterprise Manager 12c has Arrived!)
  • Fusion Middleware Support Newsletter Note 1347075.1
  • EPM and BI Support Newsletter Note 1347131.1 .

The Ilmar Kerm DB blog has an original approach I thought was original and resourceful. Have a look: Clustering MySQL instances with Oracle Clusterware 11gR2.


The Oracle at Delphix brings us this very handy script to help with: Importing AWR repositories from cloned databases.


Deltalounge fills us in on their upcoming SOA and Governance seminar.


Some good material on Troubleshooting ‘DFS lock handle’ waits over at Oracle database internals by Riyaj.

PeopleSoft SCM

If you are using SCM you will find this MOS page very useful: Information Center: PeopleSoft eProcurement Document 1358021.1

News of the Future

I've been predicting and looking forward to this use of technology for years. I've always thought that you could harness the efforts of gamers to resolve real world problems. And now you can: Computer gamers develop problem-solving algorithm that beats scientists’ best efforts. In fact, you've already been doing a human-machine assisted reading program yourself and didn't know: Deciphering Old Texts, One Woozy, Curvy Word at a Time .

Book Review: "Oracle Weblogic Server 11gR1 PS2: Administration Essentials" by Michel Schildmeijer


Something handy over at (YABAOAE) Yet Another Blog About Oracle Application Express:


Siebel Essentials discusses some new releases on CRM: New Siebel CRM Releases: and 8.2.2


Cameron's Blog for Essbase Hackers discusses Resolving EPM and BI support issues faster.


Tom Kyte has a follow-up to this posting last week that we linked to here: I really liked this one (the followup) .

Free Courses

We've had a few articles about mainly IT-specific courses available from several universities. This site gathers those and much more, along with language courses. Worth having a look over at Open Culture: 400 Free Online Courses from Top Universities
