In-memory Consistency

A comment on one of my early blogs about the 12c in-memory database option asked how Oracle would deal with read-consistency. I came up with a couple of comments outlining the sort of thing I would look for in a solution, and this note is an outline on how I started to tackle the question – with a couple of the subsequent observations.

When I was created some test scripts I found there was a way to see that (more...)
