So that’s 9 years done and I’m starting my 10th year. It’s crazy how quick times flies!



PS. After 9 years, I still can’t fill in an (more...)

Locality Group Observability on Solaris

Modern multi-socket servers exhibit NUMA characteristics that may hurt application performance if ignored. On a NUMA system (Non-uniform Memory Access), all memory is shared between/among processors.

LAMP PHP-GD Libraries

Everything seemed complete after configuring my standalone MySQL instance to a LAMP installation, but last night I started playing with the image files. It turns out that I failed to install the php-gd library.

There’s very little feedback when you try to troubleshoot why you can’t read an image. In fact, the error message for reading the BLOB from MySQL was only available on the local Firefox browser:

The image "http://localhost/ConvertMySQLBlobToImage.php" cannot be  (more...)

SQLd360 with the AWR Warehouse

Mauro decided to give me another challenge-  run SQLd360 against the AWR Warehouse and let him know how it does straight “out of the box”.  It’s a simpler installation process than SQLTXPLAIN, you simply unzip and run, (no installation of any packages…)

I chose a SQL_ID from one of the source databases loaded and ran it for a 31 day history:
