A comment on one of my early blogs about the 12c in-memory database option asked how Oracle would deal with read-consistency. I came up with a couple of comments outlining the sort of thing I would look for in a solution, and this note is an outline on how I started to tackle the question – with a couple of the subsequent observations. The data is (nearly) the same as the data I generated for my previous article on the (more...)

Hi there, Last week, I spoke at AIOUG Tech Day at Hyderabad. All India Oracle Users Group (AIOUG) in association with TechMahindra organized one full day of techtalk event. Believe me, the Danube auditorium was a state-of-art facility with 500 capacity. Fabulous venue and huge crowd with similar interest. I thought of sharing my experience … Continue reading

Oracle’s 126.96.36.199 was released a few weeks ago (You can download it from OTN here: Oracle 188.8.131.52 Download). While technically a minor point release, it contains a couple of major features that would normally be rolled out in a more substantial version change like 12cR2 or perhaps V13. Of course the most highly anticipated feature is a new option (Oracle In-Memory Option) that provides a column (more...)
A TNS error at night…
Sometime ago my data warehouse colleague came to me with a TNS error. At night times he runs his batch jobs in order to update his data warehouse. That night one of his jobs did not run properly and generated an ORA-12592 error. He had to restart this job during daytime.
It turned out it was not the only occurrence of this TNS error. A couple of days later he (more...)
A Pandas DataFrame has a nice to_sql(table_name, sqlalchemy_engine) method that saves itself to a database.
The only trouble is that coming up with the SQLAlchemy Engine object is a little bit of a pain, and if you're using the IPython %sql magic, your %sql session already has an SQLAlchemy engine anyway. So I created a bogus
PERSIST pseudo-SQL command that simply calls
to_sql with the open database connection:
%sql PERSIST mydataframe
The result is (more...)
Over the last two weeks I’ve been working on a heartbeat monitoring solution for a client. This is not the normal heartbeat solution provided by Oracle as described in note 1299679.1; yet very similar. The approach that I configured is similar to a traditional heartbeat setup but uses the same extract and replicats already being used by the database/application. For simplicity reasons, I like to call this approach an Integrated Application Heartbeat.
In order (more...)
If you’re building a “finance-ey” application you probably have plenty of fields that should show and accept monetary amounts – and quite possibly these items may be implemented in a variety of ways – ordinary apex number items, edit fields in tabular reports, or even dynamically generated items using APEX_ITEM.text.
In my case I had all three, scattered throughout the application. Our users routinely deal with multi-million dollar amounts and they had trouble checking the amounts visually, (more...)
The title of this piece is the name given to a new feature in 184.108.40.206, and since I’ve recently blogged about a limitation of the in-memory option I thought I’d pick this feature as the next obvious thing to blog about. This is a bit of a non sequitur, though, as the feature seems to have nothing whatsoever to do with the in-memory option; instead it’s a cunning mechanism combining aspects of the star-transformation (but without the bitmap indexes), (more...)
