Licensing Oracle in a public cloud: the CPU calculation impact

First of all a disclaimer: I don’t work for Oracle nor do I speak for them. I believe this information to be correct, but for licensing questions, Oracle themselves have the final word.

With that out of the way, followers of this blog may have seen some of the results from my testing of actual CPU capacity with public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. In each of these (more...)

Creating and scaling Dynamic Clusters using wlst

In my previous article, Creating and scaling Dynamic Clusters in Weblogic 12c, I described the creation and scaling of Dynamic Clusters. I used the Weblogic Console to create the Dynamic Clusters and change the number of servers.

Most of the time you will use some wlst scripting to create and manage your Weblogic environments.
In this article I will show you how to create Dynamic Clusters en how you can scale them.

Creating and scaling Dynamic Clusters in Weblogic 12c

Introduced in Weblogic 12.1.2, dynamic clusters is a great feature to scale your private cloud.
Dynamic clusters provides you easy scaling of Weblogic clusters by adding and removing managed server instances on demand. They contain one or more dynamic servers. These dynamic servers are based on a single servertemplate that guarantees that every member of the cluster is exactly the same.

Nephophobia

They say that these are not the best of times
But they're the only times I've ever known
And I believe there is a time for meditation
In cathedrals of our own

Now I have seen that sad surrender in my mother's eyes
I can only stand apart and sympathize
For we are always what our situations hand us
Its either sadness or euphoria

Setting up Oracle Stream Explorer 12.1.3

Oracle Stream Explorer is available now for download. For those unfamiliar with the product, it is a new tool based on Oracle Event Processing (OEP, formerly known as Complex Event Processing). It’s a graphical interface on OEP, hiding the rather daunting CQL (Continuous Query Language) from the user.

Installation is pretty straightforward. You start with installation of OEP 12.1.3.

Mind you that OEP is installed in (more...)

Hackathon Provides Opportunity for Collaboration and Innovation

Fishbowl team members competed in our third annual Hackathon over the weekend. Our consultants split up into four groups to create an innovative solution, and were given just over 24 hours to complete the task. The goal was to create usable software that could be used in the future when working with clients; some of our most creative products and services originally derived from Hackathon events.

I’m In Love With My Car

I'm in love with my car
Gotta feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar
Such a thrill when your radials squeal.

As is typical with Queen, citing the lyrics fail to do the song justice.  You can hear the song and watch the official video here.  C'mon back when you're done.

Test MySQL on AWS quickly

Using sysbench to performance test AWS RDS MySQL hardware is an easy three step  operation. 

Sysbench creates synthetic tests and they are done on a 1 mil row 'sbtest' table that sysbench creates in the MySQL database you indicate. The test doesn't intrude with your database schema, and it doesn't use your data, so it is quite safe. The test is an OLTP test trying to simulate event operations in the database as it (more...)

If You Want It, Here It Is

If you want it
Here it is, come and get it
