The Unix utilities ps and top report memory differently with HugePages than without.
Without HugePages ps seems to include the SGA memory under the SZ column:

Join myself and Tim Gorman as we host a live webinar and Q&A September 18th at 10am PST with Jonathan Lewis. Jonathan will explain from his on experiences how Delphix works and what industry problems it solves.

Jonathan explains issues and obstacles to creating “thin clones” on typical industry hardware:
how point in time snapshots work
And from point in time snapshots, he explains how clones can rapidly be made.
Good blogs keep popping up and other blogs fade into the back ground, so it’s hard to keep track of the good stuff out there. The following is a list of blogs I have either in the past gotten a lot out of or currently do. It would be great to get comments on what the best current blogs are and then iterate on this list and keep it updated.
On Monday we had some performance problems on a system that includes a database which uses shared servers. The top wait was “virtual circuit wait”. Here are the top 5 events for a 52 minute time frame:

In my recent post I showed how log file sync (LFS) and log file parallel write (LFPW) look for normal systems. I think it would also be interesting to compare that to the situation when LGWR does not have enough CPU.
I happen to have collected LGWR and database-level trace files for a 188.8.131.52 database on a Solaris 10 server which was under serious pressure (50 threads mostly inserting and committing data, only 32 (more...)
I’m proud to be one of the Oracle ACE Directors. Watch the video for some viewpoints on the Oracle ACE program from both Oracle and other Oracle ACEs.
There is a very common mistake in troubleshooting log file sync (LFS) waits: comparing its average time to average log file parallel write (LFPW) and trying to deduce from that whether the root cause of the wait is slow I/O or something else. The fact that this approach is recommended by Oracle itself (e.g. MOS 1376916.1) and many independent experts unfortunately doesn’t make it any less wrong.
It is well known that averages and ratios can distort the reality (Milsap and (more...)
I’ll be in Openworld again this year, and have a couple of speaking slots…
I’ll talk about new features for developers in 12c on Sunday, Sep 28, 2:30 Moscone South 303
and of course, at the awesome Oaktable world..
Drop in, learn some cool things, or just pop up and say Hello!
Catchy title, don’t you think? My session has been moved to Monday 4 P.M., in direct conflict with Tom Kyte – and Keith Laker, who asked me to present in the first place. Avoid the lines: come see the MATCH_RECOGNIZE clause push great pre-12c solutions into retirement. As a bonus, be the first person on your block able […]
Overview only :
Complete prerequisites on target server see my step by step document
Step 2 :
run adpreclone procedure on database tier and application tier
Step 3 :
copy db, apps, inst to target machine and also change ownership
db — database user
apps,inst — appl user
Step 4 :
take rman backup and copy to target machine
Restore database to target machine using rman
change database name
Zone Maps are new index-like structures that enables the “pruning” of disk blocks during accesses of the table by storing the min and max values of selected columns for each “zone” of a table. A zone is simply a range of contiguous blocks within a table. Zone Maps are similar in concept to Exadata storage […]
Not all documentation is created equal. Too much time is spent on formal design documents that are immediately outdated, and too little is spent on writing code comments.
Make sure your process requires and rewards good code comments. And make sure your architecture diagrams are kept up-to-date.

I wanted to expand on a thread in a LinkedIn group I’m part of, where one of the members wrote “It’s funny when 2 experts are arguing about who is better”, using Tom Kyte and Jonathan Lewis as examples of people they say are “Experts”.
Disclaimer: I have not spoken to Jonathan or Tom in regard to their viewpoints on this subject, so this shouldn’t be taken as them saying any of this, just my (more...)

While 8k is the default block size, Oracle supports other block sizes, too. Smaller block sizes (more commonly, 4k) are encouraged for OLTP workloads to reduce concurrency, and even smaller block size, 2k, is recommended for databases running on “Advanced format” (or “4K”) storage. Oracle documentation warns us of possible implications when storing larger rows in 2k/4k blocks, such as potentially larger space overhead due to metadata, or even possibility of row chaining. What it (more...)
Gartner has just released another iteration of their classic “Hype Cycles.” They are up to more than 100 different topics now, but one interesting graph is one is the one for Emerging Technologies.

I want to comment on a couple of points from this graph:
- Internet of Things as peaking – completely agree. Everybody is talking about it but what do we have? An internet-connected smoke alarm.
