12.2 Online Conversion of a Non-Partitioned Table to a Partitioned Table (A Small Plot Of Land)

In my previous post, I discussed how you can now move heap tables online with Oracle Database 12.2 and how this can be very beneficial in helping to address issues with the Clustering Factor of key indexes. A problem with this technique is that is requires the entire table to be effectively reorganised when most of […]

Running NetBeans IDE 9 Development Build on JDK 9 EA Build 162

For the adventurous, interesting times ahead since you're able to try out the NetBeans IDE 9 development build on top of JDK 9 EA, in my case, Build 162.

When you configure that in your 'etc/netbeans.conf' file, the first thing you see on start up is this error, which appears to be related to the Darcula plugin that I'm using. Of course, since it's awesome despite this aspect for the moment, I'm using the (more...)

Google dashboard for lazy businessman

Once you start your own business or startup, the very first thing that comes to mind is "How many visitors did my website receive?"

Google Analytics provides tons of metrics and it becomes quite a chore to keep up with all the dashboard pages and filter options. As a small biz owner myself, I went through a phase where I ended up spending significant amount of time checking out Google Analytics

racattack-ansible-oracle Up and Running

From a time long ago – https://mdinh.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/toys-for-when-you-i-are-bored/

With help from oravirt, I was able to install RAC VMs.

At this point, only the servers have been created and nothing has been installed; that’s coming up at some point.

Some clarification for setup=standard vagrant provision

setup=standard (shell environment variable)

vagrant provision (executable)

This is where the confusion was at first.

More chaos as an OWSM policy by Jeroen Ninck Blok

imageErrors & failures

So it is very easy to implement a happy flow. However handling errors, rolling back transactions and recovering from errors and failures can be quite challenging. It is not possible to find all the possibilities during development or design. Some errors or failures will only occur when very rare circumstances come into play together. Then all the parts of the application either will handle the error and will ensure that no data (more...)

eDB360 new features (March 2017)

As many of you know, eDB360 is a free tool that provides a 360-degree view of an Oracle database without any installation. A new version is available like once per month, but occasionally a large number of enhancements are implemented at once. This new release v1708 (March 25, 2017) includes several new features requested recently by some users of the tool, thus the need to blog about what is new:

  1. Reducing the scope of eDB360 is (more...)

Review at amazon: Quality of Service for Intenet Multimedia

Over the last three months i read a really amazing book about quality of service techniques.
Today everyone has internet access with more than 50Mbit/s, it seems like overbooking does not happen anymore and traffic priorization is no longer needed.
But this is only the half of the truth: Using cloud service, video streaming, onling gaming, ... you can really fast reach the limit of your internet access bandwith.
Companies face the same problem at a (more...)

Is Oracle Database in Cloud PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, or DBaaS?

Question: Is Oracle Database in Cloud PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, or DBaaS?
  • If you install and manage Oracle database in cloud by yourself, then you are using it on IaaS.
  • If you are just using it in cloud without installing or managing it, then it's PaaS.
  • If you are configuring the database instance and have access to it through SQL*Net, then its DBaaS.

OUG Ireland 2017 : The Journey Home

I left the hotel bar with Martin, Chris and Neil and after an abortive attempt to get an airbus, we got a taxi to the airport.

I was convinced Dublin Airport was one of the few airports that don’t want you to unpack your laptops from your bag so I didn’t and my bag got flagged. I have no idea where I got that idea from, but I felt like a dick. 🙂

We then went (more...)

I got up a little after 08:30, which was a bit of a surprise, and headed down for breakfast, where a met a bunch of other speakers.

By the time I got showered, changed and checked out of the hotel I had missed the first session of the day (sorry). The first session I went to was the wife presenting “PaaS4SaaS”. I know what you are thinking, and yes I could do this presentation as (more...)
