If you haven’t talk to me IRL for the past 10 months, then I haven’t pestered you about the wonders of BLE and micro-location. My love affair with BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) beacons became clear when I heard at WWDC 2013 that Apple was implementing BLE beacon detection in their CoreLocation framework. Apple showed how a small BLE beacon sending a constant signal (UUID + Major + Minor *) at a given interval could help (more...)

Replication of data is always a fun thing to look at; What is replicating?! Discussions around, How do I get data from server/database A to server/database B or even to server/database C are valid questions and are often asked by management. Often the simple (knee jerk) answer is, just set it up and start replicating. Although Oracle GoldenGate may be simple (for some architectures) to meet the demands of management and the (more...)

This is the fifth article in a series called Operationally Scalable Practices. The first article gives an introduction and the second article contains a general overview. In short, this series suggests a comprehensive and cogent blueprint to best position organizations and DBAs for growth.
We’ve looked in some depth at the process of defining a standard platform with an eye toward Oracle database use cases. Before moving on, it would be worthwhile to briefly touch (more...)
I caught up with my clients at MongoDB to discuss the recent MongoDB 2.6, along with some new statements of direction. The biggest takeaway is that the MongoDB product, along with the associated MMS (MongoDB Management Service), is growing up. Aspects include:
- An actual automation and management user interface, as opposed to the current management style, which is almost entirely via scripts (except for the monitoring UI).
- That’s scheduled for public beta in May, (more...)

I regularly read threads on the oracle-l mailing list, and occasionally feel very tempted to reply to one. Just recently I saw one that I liked a lot. It is specifically about using an Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) as a Disaster Recovery (DR) solution for an Exadata system. The Exadata configuration was not specified, I assume it was a smaller (eighth rack/quarter rack) configuration.
There were lots of arguments pro and against that Exadata->ODA architecture, (more...)
In this post I’m going to show to synchronize the remote and local repositories after an existing file in local gets modified. What I’ll do is modify the sp_test_git.pls file in our local repository and then push those changes to the remote repository (GitHub).
First, I proceed to open the sp_test_git.pls file using SQL Developer, add another dbms_output line to it and save it. The moment I save the file, the Pending Changes (more...)

I know you think you can’t live without Putty, Cygwin and/or Xming, but you really can. Give MobaXterm a go and I would be extremely surprised if you ever go back to that rag-tag bunch of apps…

I was trying to recreate the scenario where a 12c container database is flashed back to a SCN before the point that I recovered a pluggable database to using point in time recovery.
I got this ugly ORA-00600:
