Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 29-FEB-2012


Charles Hooper's Oracle Notes gets down to brass tacks about indexes, myths and legends that have accrued around indexes, and calls for experimenting and thinking, both of which are practises DBAs should engage in as often as time permits (I know you don't get time to think on most production systems, but such is life): Interesting Index “Facts” – What is Wrong with these Quotes?

At the Oracle Scratchpad blog, Jonathan Lewis takes up the topic of Not In, again: Not In - 2.

Timur Akhmadeev's blog goes into some depth on the Load profile section of Statspack and AWR reports.

Web Utilities

bex huff brings us a tool that no one would have understood twenty years ago. They found that some of the URLs generated for Oracle patches are too long to fit in Twitter and came up with a URL shortener. I can just imagine how the conversation would have gone about this before the web:

Fred: "I invented an URL shortener."
Tom: "What the heck did Earl ever do to you to make him want to shorten him? He's short enough already!"


A great posting over at Chris Warticki's Blog - Oracle Support on SOA Support Resources.

SOA@Oracle SCA, BPEL, BPM & Service Bus announces that Oracle Fusion Middleware PS5 is out.


Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control has a posting called: Oracle Exadata Management — Diary of an Exadata DBA. I'm just glad it's not 'confessions of an Exadata DBA.'


The Enterprise Performance Management Blog takes the long view of things in this posting: Hyperion Enterprise Customers - Moving Forward..


The PeopleSoft Technology Blog lets us know the PeopleSoft Portal Solutions Multi-Language Media Pack is Available.

Social Networking

What is antisocial networking, anyway? Oh, I remember. It's called international diplomacy. Anyway, AppsLab has a good posting on the Oracle Social Network: Well Hello There, Oracle Social Network Videos


Rittman Mead Consulting takes a look at Oracle Endeca Week : What is the Endeca MDEX Engine?

History of Technology

The 40s were a time of horrible historical events and coming up with brilliant technological solutions to deal with them. This interview with historian George Dyson at Wired is well worth a his upcoming book Turing's Cathedral probably will be.
