Excited to see the announcement of Amazon RDS Performance Insight feature for database performance monitoring and tuning.
Having met the team for this project I can say from my personal view point that the importance and future success of this feature is clear as day to me. The team is awesomely sharp, the architecture is super impressive, and this is by far the most exciting performance monitoring and feedback system I’ve been involved with, surpassing the (more...)
I would think installing SQL*Plus on the Mac would be point, click download, point click, install bam it works.
It did install mostly straight forward on my old Mac. Got a new Mac and no dice.
Tried installing myself guessing at the downloads. First of all why isn’t there just one download?
Downloaded instantclient and instantclient with SQL*Plus which turns out to be correct, but no dice. Still got errors.
Got errors. Gave up.

Super excited to be working at Amazon on my passion which is performance data visualization and database monitoring. Suffice it to say this is the most excited I’ve been about work in my career and I’ve had ample opportunity to work on database performance in the past such as at (more...)
Having take a new job at Amazon just two weeks ago and moving to Seattle (!) I didn’t have the time nor was it practical to set up Oaktable World this year. Luckily Kelly Pot’vin has taken over the mantel !

It’s frustrating to have to spend time jumping off into web security and wordpress configurations when there are so many other things that are important to be doing. Today the DoS continued and the Jetpack solution didn’t seem to work. The other two solutions from Digital Ocean didn’t seem reasonable. One was to re-install wordpress with there install version. Nice that they offer a better security protected version but I didn’t feel like re-installing my (more...)
This site had been running for a years with no big issues.
I had performance and system saturation issues about 3 years ago and then move the site to DigitalOcean.com.
They are inexpensive and the performance is awesome.
Then last Monday and every day since the site had been going down.
Simplest “solution” for me was just to get on and bounce the machine.
That cleared it up.
After this went on for a (more...)

Masking with Delphix (where duplicate blocks are shared making a new copy almost free storage wise and almost instantaneous) has 4 big advantages
- Instant data, no copying
- Ease of Use
- Consistent across data centers and databases vendors
Virtual Data Masking
Delphix masking and virtualization is the most advanced solution in the market place, because Delphix doesn’t provision data. Instead of provisioning data, Delphix sets up pointers back to existing data for a new clone. When that (more...)
Someone just asked on the Delphix Forums whether they could test Delphix replication with the free version of Delphix called Delphix Express.
I’d never tried, so I sat down to try and was amazed at how easy it was.
I created twoDelphix Express installations.
On one engine, the source engine, (http://172.16.103.16/) I linked to an Oracle 220.127.116.11 database on Solaris Sparc called “yesky”.
On that same engine I (more...)
