In the next few days I’ll be at RMOUG 2012 training days! and I’ll be again presenting the topic so dear to my heart. Mining the AWR I’ve updated the material with a couple of new research and findings, some of them are as follows:
- CPU Wait (new metric in 11g Performance page)
- Latency issues on virtualized environments
So if you are attending the RMOUG training days, stop by at my session @ room 401 Thursday 9:45 am-10:45 am
There will also be a RAC Attack at the exhibition area so that must be fun
and don’t forget to follow (more...)
Earlier I did a presentation at VirtaThon which is the same topic that I presented at Hotsos 2011.. Mining the AWR and Capacity Planning are very dear to my heart and up until now I’m using every research I did on that presentation to work on an “Exadata Provisioning Tool” which I’m planning to present at the next Hotsos 2012… well, the only thing that’s different this time is.. my attendees are virtual geeks all over the world
I was at the Virtual Room #100, and the staff earlier were really helpful and most of all I had fun (more...)
It’s been a long time since my last blog and ever since I joined Enkitec I’ve been busy immersing myself in Exadata stuff. So most of the time I’m just posting my brain dumps on my wiki although I know there’s a lot of blog worthy scenarios and projects that I have worked on just like last week when we did an Exadata Half Rack X2-2 Split Configuration from the factory image without the use of Oracle’s ACS. We did all of the pre-config and config tasks like the onecommand, patched the database to 18.104.22.168 BP8, patched (more...)
Dave Abercrombie mailed me earlier that the May 2011 NoCOUG Journal is already out and can be viewed online at http://www.nocoug.org/Journal/NoCOUG_Journal_201105.pdf.
I met Dave at Hotsos 2011 when he attended my presentation.. apparently we have the same interest about Statistics, Linear Regression, AWR, AAS and he’s got awesome blogs about it at http://aberdave.blogspot.com. Also being the Journal Editor at Northern California Oracle Users’s Group, he invited me to write a short article about the question:
Why is my database slow?
The NoCOUG Journal having a very wide readership with the last issue being downloaded around 6000 times from (more...)
A quick post… which is a bit interesting…
As I was searching for Exadata viewlets in Oracle By Example portal (http://goo.gl/HjshR) I clicked on the “Advanced Search”
and then filtered by Product Family (Database) and then by Product…
to my surprise there was an option for “Database 12g”….
oh well.. I checked on the Lifetime Support Policy (http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-technology-069183.pdf) and looking at the release dates
it could be possible that they will release the new version anytime this year..
could be in Oracle Open World 2011? hmmm…
For all that loves Oracle performance.. Hotsos is truly the best conference, all the speakers are performance geeks, all the attendees talks about performance. Everything is about performance! There are lot more stuff that I like about my first Hotsos experience, the following are some of them..
I like that presenters and attendees are curious about what each performance geek has to say..
I like that whenever their brains are already fried. They consume as much coffee/soda as they can.. and just lay their butts on this couch.. and still.. talk about performance.
I like that after all the sessions, (more...)
|Hotsos is an annual conference that is devoted on Oracle system performance and the people presenting there are really passionate about their research and highly specialized about their subject area. Kinda geeky, but hey, performance is never boring.. and for me there’s still a lot of things to learn on each of the areas of performance and these are as follows:
- Application Testing
- Capacity Planning
- Database Tuning
- Hardware and OS
- Performance Tools
- SQL Tuning
- Troubleshooting & Internals
Yesterday, I received an email that I have been accepted as a presenter for Hotsos 2011 this is really cool .. !

In this post (which has been looong overdue :p ) I’ll show you how you could make use of Social Networking Sites to make knowledge sharing and meeting people more fun. As you can see from the illustration above, I’ve made use of the following sites/services to build a dynamic and multidimensional means of communication:
- FeedBurner RSS
- FeedBurner Mail Subscription
- Google Sites
The story behind it…
I am a DBA for 4years+, and started with zero knowledge about Oracle. I joined SQL*Wizard, which has a great training program and exposed me to a lot of difficult (more...)
I just recently I became a member of the PSIA Tech Council… The company I’m working for is a member of PSIA which makes up 90% of the country’s software sector promoting the growth and global competitiveness of the Philippine software industry, also an active partner of the government and academe in implementing programs that benefit the industry.
