Wrapping SQL*Plus

One annoying thing from installing Oracle Database 11g on Fedora, was that the up arrows for command history didn’t work. I decided to fix that today after seeing Lutz Hartmann’s article on rlwrap. Unfortunately, the epel (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) package he recommended doesn’t run on Fedora 20. You can read my tale of woe, or skip to the .bashrc function that fixed it when I installed only rlwrap.

Who deserves the title “Expert” or (even worse) “Guru”?

I wanted to expand on a thread in a LinkedIn group I’m part of, where one of the members wrote “It’s funny when 2 experts are arguing about who is better”, using Tom Kyte and Jonathan Lewis as examples of people they say are “Experts”.

Disclaimer: I have not spoken to Jonathan or Tom in regard to their viewpoints on this subject, so this shouldn’t be taken as them saying any of this, just my (more...)

I started to work with databases already in college, but more from the data modelling/business analysis angle. When I moved to (more...)

Commit scalability

I am learning about how well commits scale on Oracle 11.2 and so far they seem to scale surprisingly well.

I’ve looked at two waits – log file parallel write and log file sync.  Based on documents I’ve read on Oracle’s support site log file parallel write represents the time it takes to do one write to the redo logs.  For mirrored redo logs the log file parallel write time includes the (more...)
