DOAG 2016

I had a great time at DOAG 2016. It’s one of the best run conferences I’ve been to! I did a quick cameo during the keynote to talk about performance in Oracle’s cloud. Nothing like being on stage with a guy wearing a tie. :) Thanks Andrew for inviting me to say a few words.

My Favorite Scripts – 2016

I did a talk at the Dallas Oracle Users Group Technical Training Day which was held on Oct 20th. The title was My Favorite Scripts and basically talked through some of the scripts I use most often and logged on to a system and showed how they work. I promised I would upload the presentation and a zip file here. So here you go.

Controlling Execution Plans Workshop

I did a workshop at ECO 2015 today. It was a lot of fun. I’ve done numerous presentations on SQL Profiles, SQL Patches and Baselines in the past, but this session was a no-slides, hands on demo of some of the scripts I use. I also showed some scripts that can be used to re-write SQL on the fly using a new feature of 12c called SQL Translation Framework. Here is a zip file that (more...)

Interesting Oracle Syntax Error

As shared by a well known Oracle and Big Data performance geek!

SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET inmemory_size = 5T SCOPE=spfile;
ALTER SYSTEM SET inmemory_size = 5T SCOPE=spfile
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-32005: error while parsing size specification [5T]


SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET inmemory_size = 5120G SCOPE=spfile;

System altered.

Dallas Oracle Users Group Performance Meetup

I spoke at a one day DOUG meeting yesterday. It was pretty cool. Very small intimate group of about 50. The speakers were Nitin Vengurlekar, Charles Kim, Cary Millsap and myself. All are Ace Directors and either work at Viscosity or Enkitec. As a bonus, Tanel Poder showed up to weigh in on some open discussion. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I promised the group I would post my slides and a zip file with (more...)
