DB2 fully supported on Delphix

I’ve received a number of inquiries lately about the support of DB2 on Delphix and yes, Delphix 5.0 now supports full automation of virtual data for DB2. With the addition of DB2, Delphix now supports full automation of virtual data on all three of the major enterprise databases

  • Oracle
  • SQL Server
  • DB2

as well as Sybase, MySQL and Postgres.

Creating a custom public workspace theme

The Universal Theme introduced with APEX 5 is immensly good looking and comes with a powerful Theme Roller to customize it.

With that new theme most, if not all, older themes are obsolete.

That leaves us just with a few corporate designs which can’t (or don’t want to) be replaced by the UT.

Now ideally you want your developers to use that custom theme in all applications and also subscribe to that.
Historically I recommended (more...)

Overcoming Your Oracle Data Insecurity

Webinar – Wednesday, March 30 – 10am PT

In 2016, the risks and reasons why companies should secure their sensitive data are well known (Sony, Target, and Anthem just to name a few examples). Yet, most companies have pitiful or limited data security in their Oracle databases.

Join Pete Finnigan, Oracle security specialist, and discover:

  • The challenges with securing Oracle databases
  • Why and how securing test and development systems are (more...)

Cedar’s Oracle Cloud Day 2016 – Recap

Cedar held its annual Oracle Day in Oracle’s City office last Thursday – it was actually our 6th year of running the event. The attendance was great – just short of 100 – and with 3 streams of content there was plenty to choose from. If you weren’t there, here’s the highlights of the sessions that I attended:

After the opening keynote from Dan Woolstone, Oracle’s James King and myself spoke to a full room (more...)

PL/SQL Functions in the WITH Clause and Read (In)Consistency

A question was raised in Martin Widlake’s session this morning in OUG Ireland 2016. The (excellent) session was about the performance of calling PL/SQL functions from SQL, and Martin scared the audience (or at least tried to scare…) with the fact that read consistency is not kept (with respect to the base SQL statement) when the PL/SQL functions are called from that SQL statement.
The question that was raised was whether this is also (more...)

Setup DNS for RAC 12c implementation in virtual Box

If you are plan to implement rac setup in virtul box for your lab practise, you need to setup a dns configuration necessary steps to use single client access name (SCAN) introduced in 11gR2 RAC.

The DNS setup may be a separate server, or you can make it on any one of the nodes you’re preparing for rac implementation.

Here I have chosed to setup on rac first node, so you need to do some (more...)

OCI Client-Side Deployment in 12C

The 12c version has introduced a new features called “OCI Client-Side Deployment Parameters” this feature gives you the possibility to override some OCI parameters without even changing your application code.

Let’s make a simple test case using Python and the cx_oracle module (which use the OCI interface) for connecting to the oracle database.

You can find this module for your python version and the database 12c version here.

This is the code of our test case:

Backup the Siebel Gateway name server data

Its necessary to take the backup of siebel gateway name server data before or after making any configuration changes.  So you should take the backup of siebns.dat file

Application :

Administration-  system configuration –> Enterprises

Click Backup enterprise ( it will generate siebns.dat along with date in gateway server).

or Command prompt

[siebel@premiadb siebsrvr]$  srvrmgr /g premiadb /e MigEnt /u SADMIN /p  password

Plotting SLOB results in high resolution

Introduction

If you work with I/O benchmarking of Oracle databases, you are almost certainly familiar with SLOB. SLOB is more than just an I/O benchmark — it’s become a de-facto industry standard. It’s simple, powerful and efficient, and it captures a plethora of metrics, both from the OS (output of iostat, mpstat etc.) and the database itself (in the form of an AWR report).

One thing that is missing though is visualization. It’s fairly (more...)

Repository Database License Cost for Oracle Forms 12c Explained

Michael Ferrante, the Oracle Form Product Manager, has been asked to clarify the database repository licensing for Forms 12c. He was generous enough to share his response with the Oracle Forms Community as the second post in our Oracle Forms 12c guest series.  If you’re a Forms guru and want to contribute click here for more information.

Nested loop internals — summary

In this article, I’ll summarize my observations regarding nested loop join mechanisms as well as previously known facts, so that everything would be in one place.

1) Nested loops are the simplest join mechanism in Oracle, where as data is read from one table (or more generally, row source), for each row another table (or more generally, row source), is probed (typically with an index proble, such as INDEX RANGE/UNIQUE SCAN) to see if there (more...)

Parallel partition scans

When a table is accessed by multiple members of a parallel query server set, the execution plan may show the use of block range granules (PX BLOCK ITERATOR) or partition range granules (PX PARTITION [RANGE|LIST|HASH] ITERATOR or PX PARTITION [RANGE|LIST|HASH] ALL).

The basic ideas surrounding these concepts are discussed in numerous blogs and books, including my own, but discussion of partition range granules is normally restricted to either partition wise joins or the creation (more...)

Siebel ERP Integration performance issue

Users are always complaint about siebel erp integration performance issue when they are doing push the approval data to erp r12. It will take approximately 2 to 4 minutes.

So I took the awr reports from both database  and crosschecked both with some interval, the siebel database performance is good but erp database saying there is integration related packages sql elasped time little bit more.

So i just went to siebel application and look the all components group log (more...)

Nested loop internals. Part 3: comparative efficiency

In the previous parts (here and here) of the series we looked at some aspects of nested loop I/O optimizations, but we have left out the most important question (from the practical point of view): how these methods are doing time-wise? Which one(s) is(are) faster, and how much savings are they offering compared to the non-optimized plan? We will turn to these questions now.

First of all, if we simply run everything with (more...)

A Tip for using Excel to Validate HDL templates

HCM Data Loader (HDL) data ready to load into Oracle HCM Cloud is in pipe separated text file format, however most people will create and manipulate these files in MS Excel as it’s the handy swiss-army-knife for data manipulation that almost everyone is familiar with.

The way that we’ve worked is that we create template files containing the sheets and columns corresponding to the fields that the client is using, which the client then populates, (more...)
