Oracle 12c: Export by View

A small enhancement, but what a golden nugget! At least that’s what I think. It is now possible in Oracle 12c to export data via a view. I my realm, Oracle XMLDB, that can be an interesting feature to export stored XML content in a relational format and import it, for example, in a relational

I love Cloud Control 12c, but the job management is really annoying!

Cloud Control 12c is a great product. Yes, it is suffering from bloat, but generally it is a really great tool. I’m always encouraging people to ditch the DBControl and switch to Cloud Control!

Having said that, one area that annoys the hell out of me is the job management, which feels really clumsy. I started to write this post, then felt a bit guilty because I hadn’t actually bothered to raise an enhancement request, so that’s what I’ve just done!

My main gripes are the following.

How to Troubleshoot OEM 12c Cloud Control Auto-Discovery

I was recently involved in an upgrade project to go from 11.2.0.2 to 11.2.0.3 on an Exadata V2. We hit some snags during the upgrade specifically related to OEM 12c Cloud Control. We performed an out-of-place upgrade and OEM 12.1.0.1.0 had some difficulty in dealing with this.

12c Cloud Control is supposed to run a daily check that looks for new targets on each server. When it finds something new, it places this in a queue to wait for admin approval. With a single click, you can promote the newly discovered target to an OEM managed object.

Hotsos Symposium 2013

Just a quick note to let you know I’ll be speaking at the Hotsos Symposium in March in Dallas. I’ve attended every year for the past 6 or 7 years and spoken at several of them. It has consistently been the best performance oriented Oracle conference I’ve attended. This year will be no different with the likes of Maria Colgan, Karen Morton, Tom Kyte, Tim Gorman, Cary Millsap, Frits Hoogland, Gwen Shapira, Alex Gorbachev, Kyle Haily, Carlos Sierra, Kellyn Pot’Vin, Mark Farnham, Toon Koppelaars, Andy Zitelli, Neil Gunther, Stephan Haisley, Marco Gralike, Steven Feuerstein and a host of others. Looks like several of the speakers (including me) plan to be talking about new performance oriented features of the soon to be released Oracle 12c database, so it should be very interesting. One of the best things about the conference is the chance to talk to people (including the speakers) at the breaks.

Tom Kyte in Moscow – 2

On December 11th Tom Kyte performed “AskTom in Moscow” for the second time (first time was almost three years ago in February 2010). I was there and enjoyed presentations, tweeted a lot about the content and in the end I’ve won a signed copy of the Expert Oracle Database Architecture (2nd edition, in Russian)!

The start

A glass for questions. It was full in the end of the day
