Command Line Attachment to Oracle Support Service Request

For those who haven’t looked at this in awhile: these days, it’s dirt simple to attach a file to your SR directly from the server command line.

curl –T /path/to/attachment.tgz 
     –u "your.oracle.support.login@domain.com" 
     "https://transport.oracle.com/upload/issue/0-0000000000/"

Or to use a proxy server,

curl –T /path/to/attachment.tgz
     –u "your.oracle.support.login@domain.com"
     "https://transport.oracle.com/upload/issue/0-0000000000/"
     -px proxyserver:port
     -U proxyuser

There is lots of info on MOS (really old people call it metalink); doc 1547088.2 is a good place to start. There are some other ways to do this too. But really you can skip all that, you just need the single line above!

Hotsos Symposium 2014

After missing last year’s Hotsos Symposium (trying to cut my travel as you know :), I will present at and deliver the full-day Training Day at this year’s Hotsos Symposium! It will be my 10th time to attend (and speak at) this awesome conference. So I guess this means more beer than usual. Or maybe less, as I’m getting old. Let’s make it as usual, then :0)

GITHUB_UTL Tutorial 2: Creating a new repository and adding content

In the first tutorial I showed how to install the GITHUB_UTL package. Now that we have it installed, let us start out by creating a new github repository and add some content to it.

12c fixed subquery

Here’s a simple little demonstration of an enhancement to the optimizer in 12c that may result in some interesting changes in execution plans as cardinality estimates change from “guesses” to accurate estimates.

Extension Bypassed Because of Missing Histogram

Today, while tuning a fairly complex query experiencing wrong cardinality estimates, I noticed something I was not aware of. Hence, I thought to write this short post to illustrate how to reproduce the problem I experienced…
