My plan for the day was to go to sessions about stuff I don’t do for my job. I could dress that up as something strategic, but the reality is I’m now totally conferenced out. It’s been a (more...)

I attempt to export a table with 76,000 rows using a relatively standard datapump command
expdp schemas=ODI_TEMP cluster=y directory=MCB content=ALL dumpfile=OEC_%U.dmp include=table:"IN('ORDM_ERROR_COUNTS')" parallel=8 logfile=OEC.log
It fails with a fatal error and also produces a warning

This blog turned 10 this year. When I started it in 2006 with this article, I had no idea that it would become what it is today. Things certainly turned out differently than I expected.
This little blog now gets millions of visits a year. It has helped us shape EBS to meet your needs better. I've been schooled in the many ways (more...)
After I have installed the EM13c R2, I noticed that I couldn’t access the SQL Monitoring page. I tested the SQL monitoring page for 11g to 12c database targets, and it gave the same error: ORA-06553: PLS-306: wrong number or types of arguments in call to ‘REPORT_SQL_MONITOR_LIST’. As you can guess I hit a bug, good thing is someone else already raised a service request and Oracle released Patch 24914115 to fix the bug. When (more...)
I got in my car, drove 4 miles, parked my car, walked about 100m.
I met up with a gang of people in the ICC and pretty soon we moved up to the main reception area, where we had a natter and coffee before everything kicked off. They couldn’t find a badge for Mr Debra Lilley, so (more...)
See what the Oracle Applications User Experience (#OAUX) team did during Oracle OpenWorld 2016 in San Francisco in September on the Voice of User Experience blog, or VoX, where we’ve reposted our most recent Storify collection. Here’s a short summary of the big stuff:
The OAUX Cloud Exchange, where the OAUX team demos near-future and future concepts, was extended to three days this year. Participants included Oracle partners, industry analysts, private customer (more...)
This program was recorded on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, during Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. "During" is the operative word, since the podcast was actually recorded in my hotel room, several blocks from Moscone Center, where OOW16 was held. The topic was suggested by Oracle ACE and frequent OTN contributor Arturo Viveros, who, along with other panelists, was in town for the big Oracle event. Listen.

I’ve written notes in the past about the improvements 12c introduces for histograms – particularly the frequency and top-N histograms which can be generated “free of charge” while the basic “approximate NDV” scans are taking place to gather stats. Gathering histograms in 12c is much safer than it used to be in earlier versions of Oracle even in the case of the new hybrid histograms (which are still sampled on a very small sample and (more...)
I love technology- ALL TECHNOLOGY. This includes loving my Mac Air and loving my Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I’ve recently went back to a Mac when I joined Delphix, trimming down the power I had on my Surface Pro 4, knowing the content I was providing would be required to run on hardware with lesser resources.
With the release of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 on Linux, I (more...)
In the previous post I threw out a couple of options for addressing the requirement to transfer data from one table to another (“cut and paste” rather than just “copy”) without running into odd inconsistency errors. This triggered of a wonderful comment trail of alternatives based on how large the volume might be, how relaxed the concurrency requirements might be, and so on.
#DOAG2016, the largest Oracle Community gathering in Europe. Taking place in Nuremberg, at the Nuremberg Convention Center NCC, one of the more impressive places to hold such a conference, towering 4 stories high, with a big central atrium!!
It is a huge effort to get all of this together!
