Which to tune ? Application, Database or Hardware ?

I. “The Database is hanging!” AKA “the application has problems, good grief”

Godzilla

OMG (Oh My Godzilla)! What a total pile of steaming, festering dog crap! It is incredible how they managed to spend $160 Million and produce something with less credibility than Sharknado, which only cost $250,000!

I really don’t think it has any redeeming qualities. How, in a world that brought us Cloverfield and Monsters, can so much money be spent on such a worthless pile of guff like Godzilla. In my Cloverfield review I mentioned how bad the previous spin of Godzilla was. This respin is no better.

X-Men : Days of Future Past

This morning I went to see X-Men : Days of Future Past. It was very cool!

Don’t get caught up in the whole time travel thing. It really isn’t a big deal in the whole scheme of things.

My favourite characters were Blink and Quicksilver. Evan Peters plays Quicksilver, who has one of the coolest scenes in the whole movie. Bingbing Fan plays Blink. You don’t see too much of her in the film, but what you do see is awesome.

RAC 12c enhancements: adding an additional SCAN-part 4

This is going to be the last part of this series, however long it might end up being in the end. In the previous articles you read how to create a physical standby database from a RAC One database.

Networks (refresher)

To make it easier to follow without going back to the previous articles, here are the networks I’m using, listed for your convenience.

  • 192.168.100/24: Client network
  • 192.168.102/24: Dedicated Data Guard network

Using git for revision control for Oracle DBAs

This post is aimed at people working with code, scripts and/or any other means of textual files. I try to give my point of view on revision control and git as revision control system in particular.

The first thing you should ask yourself is: why using revision control in the first place? I think that’s a good and fair question. A lot of people I talk to see revision control as something that’s for developers in projects with multiple people working on the same code to build history and provide a single point of truth. I think revision control in that situation indeed is needed (in fact, I think it is a necessity).

Setting Up Certificates for EM12c
