Fn was launched during Oracle OpenWorld 2017. Fn is available on GitHub (<a title="https://github.com/fnproject/fn" href="https://github.com/fnproject/fn">https://github.com/fnproject/fn</a> ) and provides all resources required to get started. In this article, I will just show you (and myself) how I went through the quick start steps and what it looked like on my laptop (Windows 10 with Vagrant and VirtualBox).</p> <p>I simply get Fn up and running, create a first function that I then deploy and access through HTTP. I briefly show the APIs available on the Fn server and Fn UI application.</p> <p>Steps:</p> <ol> <li>Create VirtualBox VM with Debian and Docker (for me, Ubuntu 14 failed to run Fn; I created <a href="https://github.com/fnproject/fn/issues/437" target="_blank">issue 437</a> for that) – this step is described in <a href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/19/create-debian-vm-with-docker-host-using-vagrant-automatically-include-guest-additions/" target="_blank">a different article</a></li> <li>Install Fn command line </li> <li>Install and run Fn server in the VM, as Docker container</li> <li>Create function <em>hello</em></li> <li>Initialize new function and run it</li> <li>Deploy the new function (in its own Docker Container running inside the container running Fn server)</li> <li>Invoke the new function over http from the Host laptop</li> <li>Run the Fn UI application</li> <li>Inspect the Fn Server REST APIs</li> </ol> <p>Connect into the Debian Virtual Machine – for me with vagrant ssh.</p> <ol><!--StartFragment--> </ol> <h3>Install Fn Command Line</h3> <p>To install the Fn command line, I used this command:</p> <blockquote> <pre>curl -LSs https://raw.githubusercontent.com/fnproject/cli/master/install | sh</pre> </blockquote> <pre><br></pre> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-111.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-110.png?resize=702%2C302&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a>&nbsp;</p> <p></p> <h3>Install and run Fn server in the VM, as Docker container</h3> <p>To run the Fn server, after installing the CLI, I just used</p> <blockquote> <p>fn start</p> <p></p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-112.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-111.png?resize=702%2C181&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Fn Server is running.</p> <h3>Create function <em>hello</em></h3> <p>As per the instructions in the quick start guide, I created a new directory <em>hello</em> with a text file <em>hello.go</em>:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/SNAGHTML2859e5fa.png?ssl=1"><img title="SNAGHTML2859e5fa" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="SNAGHTML2859e5fa" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/SNAGHTML2859e5fa_thumb.png?resize=702%2C271&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Note: I created these on the host laptop inside the directory that is mapped into the VM under /vagrant.

I&#8217;ve been running it for a few months now. You&#8217;ll get a warning message on startup, just click the &#8216;ignore&#8217; button and continue on. If you find a bug and report it to MOS, and they ask version of Java&#8230;back down to 8 and make sure the bug is still there too. Or, you&#8217;re on your own.</p> <p>Official support will be available, soon.</p> <h3>What&#8217;s Coming in version 17.4?</h3> <p>We hate bugs. So we&#8217;re spending time killing as many now as possible. We&#8217;re also doing more Cloud work. You&#8217;ll see a better Cart, even for on-premises work, and you&#8217;ll see some improvements with managing your connections.

So lets see how to get DBID in <strong>NOMOUNT</strong> State.</div> <div></div> <div class="separator"><strong><i>Why DBID is important? </i></strong></div> <ul> <li>It is an unique identifier for a database.</li> <li>In case of backup and recovery <strong>RMAN</strong> distinguishes databases by <strong>DBID</strong>.</li> <li>When <strong>DBID</strong> of a database is changed, all previous backups and archived logs of the database become unusable.</li> <li>After you change the <strong>DBID</strong>, you must open the database with the <strong>RESETLOGS</strong> option, which re-creates the online redo logs and resets their log sequence to 1</li> <li>You should make a backup of the whole database immediately after changing the DBID.</li> </ul> <p>Let&#8217;s take an example of getting it in nomount state:</p> <p>First shut down the database using shut immediate command</p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">SQL&gt; shut immediate Database closed.

Several years ago <a href="https://github.com/biemond/biemond-orawls-vagrant">Edwin Biemond</a> and <a href="https://technology.amis.nl/2014/07/31/rapid-creation-of-virtual-machines-for-soa-suite-12-1-3-server-run-time-environment-leveraging-vagrant-puppet-and-biemond/">Lucas Jellema</a> have written several blogs about this and have given presentations about the topics at various conferences. You can also download ready made Virtualbox images from Oracle <a href="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/community/developer-vm/index.html">here</a> and specifically for SOA Suite <a href="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/soasuite/learnmore/soa-vm-2870913.html">here</a>.</p> <p>Over the years I have created a lot (probably 100+) of virtual machines manually. For SOA Suite, the process of installing the OS, installing the database, installing WebLogic Server, installing SOA Suite itself can be quite time consuming and boring if you have already done it so many times. Finally my irritation has passed the threshold that I needed to automate it! I wanted to easily recreate a clean environment with a new version of specific software. This blog is a start; provisioning an OS and installing the XE database on it. It might seem a lot but this blog contains the knowledge of two days work. This indicates it is easy to get started.</p> <p>I decided to start from scratch and first create a base Vagrant box using Packer which uses Kickstart. Kickstart is used to configure the OS of the VM such as disk partitioning scheme, root password and initial packages. Packer makes using Kickstart easy and allows easy creation of a Vagrant base box. After the base Vagrant box was created, I can use Vagrant to create the Virtualbox machine, configure it and do additional provisioning such as in this case installing the Oracle XE database.</p> <p><span id="more-46512"></span></p> <h1>Getting started</h1> <p>First install Vagrant from HashiCorp (<a href="https://www.vagrantup.com/">here</a>).</p> <p>If you just want a quick VM with Oracle XE database installed, you can skip the Packer part. If you want to have the option to create everything from scratch, you can first create your own a base image with Packer and use it locally or use the Vagrant cloud to share the base box.</p> <p>Every Vagrant development environment requires a base box. You can search for pre-made boxes at <a href="https://vagrantcloud.com/search">https://vagrantcloud.com/search</a>.</p> <p>Oracle provides Vagrant boxes you can use <a href="http://yum.oracle.com/boxes">here</a>. Those boxes have some default settings. I wanted to know how to create my own box to start with in case I for example wanted to use an OS not provided by Oracle. I was presented with three options in the Vagrant documentation. Using Packer was presented as the most reusable option.</p> <h1>Packer</h1> <p>&#8216;Packer is an open source tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.&#8217; (from <a href="https://www.packer.io/intro/index.html">here</a>) Download Packer from HashiCorp (<a href="https://www.packer.io/intro/getting-started/install.html">here</a>).</p> <p>Avast Antivirus and maybe other antivirus programs, do not like Packer so you might have to temporarily disable them or tell them Packer can be trusted.</p> <h2>virtualbox-iso builder</h2> <p>Packer can be used to build Vagrant boxes (<a href="https://www.packer.io/intro/getting-started/vagrant.html">here</a>) but also boxes for other platforms such as Amazon and Virtualbox. See <a href="https://www.packer.io/docs/builders/index.html">here</a>. For VirtualBox there are two so called builders available. Start from from scratch by installing the OS from an ISO file or start from an OVF/OVA file (pre-build VM). Here of course I choose the ISO file since I want to be able to easily update the OS of my VM and do not want to create a new OVF/OVA file for every new OS version. Thus I decided to use the <a href="https://www.packer.io/docs/builders/virtualbox-iso.html">virtualbox-iso</a> builder.</p> <h2>Iso</h2> <p>For my ISO file I decided to go with Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 4 for x86 (64 bit) which is currently the most recent version. In order for Packer to work fully autonomous (and make it easy for the developer), you can provide a remote URL to a file you want to download. For Oracle Linux there are several mirrors available which provide that. Look one up close to you <a href="https://community.oracle.com/docs/DOC-917963">here</a>. You have to update the checksum in the template file (see below) when you update the ISO image if you want to run on a new OS version.</p> <h2>template JSON file</h2> <p>In order to use Packer with the virtualbox-iso builder, you first require a template file in JSON format. Luckily samples for these have already been made available <a href="https://github.com/shortcutsh/packer-oraclelinux/tree/master/Stage3">here</a>. You should check them though. I made my own version <a href="https://github.com/MaartenSmeets/provisioning/blob/master/packer/ol74.json">here</a>.</p> <h2>Kickstart</h2> <p>In order to make the automatic installation of Oracle Linux work, you need a Kickstart file. This is generated automatically when performing an installation at /root/anaconda-ks.cfg. Read <a href="https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37670_01/E41137/html/ch03s01.html">here</a>. I&#8217;ve made my own <a href="https://github.com/MaartenSmeets/provisioning/blob/master/packer/ol74_http/ks.cfg">here</a> in order to have the correct users, passwords, packages installed and swap partition size.</p> <p>After you have a working Kickstart file and the Packer ol74.json, you can kickoff the build by:</p> <p>packer build ol74.json</p> <p>Packer uses a specified username to connect to the VM (present in the template file). This should be a user which is created in the Kickstart script. For example if you have a user root with password Welcome01 in the kickstart file, you can use that one to connect to the VM. Creating the base box will take a while since it will do a complete OS installation and first download the ISO file.</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?ssl=1"><img data-attachment-id="46519" data-permalink="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/17/quickly-create-a-virtualbox-vm-with-xe-db-using-kickstart-packer-vagrant/2017-10-17-14_55_58-windows-powershell/" data-orig-file="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=702%2C114&amp;ssl=1" data-orig-size="702,114" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="2017-10-17 14_55_58-Windows PowerShell" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=300%2C49&amp;ssl=1" data-large-file="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=702%2C114&amp;ssl=1" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-46519" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?resize=300%2C49&#038;ssl=1" alt="" srcset="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?resize=300%2C49&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_55_58-Windows-PowerShell.png?w=702&amp;ssl=1 702w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?ssl=1"><img data-attachment-id="46518" data-permalink="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/17/quickly-create-a-virtualbox-vm-with-xe-db-using-kickstart-packer-vagrant/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-running-oracle-vm-virtualbox/" data-orig-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?fit=712%2C468&amp;ssl=1" data-orig-size="712,468" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="2017-10-17 14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637 [Running] &#8211; Oracle VM VirtualBox" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?fit=300%2C197&amp;ssl=1" data-large-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?fit=702%2C461&amp;ssl=1" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-46518" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?resize=300%2C197&#038;ssl=1" alt="" srcset="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?resize=300%2C197&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?resize=214%2C140&amp;ssl=1 214w, https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-14_54_00-packer-virtualbox-1508243637-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?w=712&amp;ssl=1 712w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>You can put the box remote or keep it local.</p> <h2>Put the box remote</h2> <p>After you have created the box, you can upload it to the Vagrant Cloud so other people can use it.

Vagrant can help you do that. I&#8217;ve used a simple shell script to do the provisioning (see <a href="https://github.com/MaartenSmeets/provisioning/blob/master/provision.sh">here</a>) but you can also use more complex pieces of software like Chef or Puppet. These are of course in the long run better suitable to also update and manage machines. Since this is just a local development machine, I decided to keep it simple.</p> <p>I&#8217;ve prepared the following Vagrant file.</p> <p>This expects to find a structure like:</p> <p>provision.sh<br /> Vagrantfile<br /> Directory: software<br /> &#8211;oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm.zip<br /> &#8211;xe.rsp</p> <p>These can be downloaded <a href="https://github.com/MaartenSmeets/provisioning">here</a>. Except the oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm.zip file which can be downloaded <a href="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database-technologies/express-edition/downloads/index.html">here</a>.</p> <p>Oracle XE comes with a rsp file (a so-called response file) which makes automating the installation easy. This is described here. You just have to fill in some variables like password and port and such. I&#8217;ve prepared such a file here.</p> <p>After everything is setup, you can do:</p> <p>vagrant up soadb</p> <p>And it will create the soadb VM for you in Virtualbox</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?ssl=1"><img data-attachment-id="46515" data-permalink="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/17/quickly-create-a-virtualbox-vm-with-xe-db-using-kickstart-packer-vagrant/2017-10-16-21_12_32-windows-powershell/" data-orig-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=711%2C629&amp;ssl=1" data-orig-size="711,629" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="2017-10-16 21_12_32-Windows PowerShell" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=300%2C265&amp;ssl=1" data-large-file="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?fit=702%2C621&amp;ssl=1" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-46515" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?resize=300%2C265&#038;ssl=1" alt="" srcset="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?resize=300%2C265&amp;ssl=1 300w, https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?resize=110%2C96&amp;ssl=1 110w, https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-16-21_12_32-Windows-PowerShell.png?w=711&amp;ssl=1 711w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-16_02_59-soadb-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?ssl=1"><img data-attachment-id="46520" data-permalink="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/17/quickly-create-a-virtualbox-vm-with-xe-db-using-kickstart-packer-vagrant/2017-10-17-16_02_59-soadb-running-oracle-vm-virtualbox/" data-orig-file="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-10-17-16_02_59-soadb-Running-Oracle-VM-VirtualBox.png?fit=798%2C670&amp;ssl=1" data-orig-size="798,670" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="2017-10-17 16_02_59-soadb [Running] &#8211;

Other encryption mechanisms at different layers of the OSI stack are still in place and secure. Most sensitive data that is transmitted over any network is also encrypted with another mechanism called TLS or HTTPS. This is the lock you see in your browser. So while the wireless encryption is no longer secure, the next layer of TLS encryption keeps the data secure.<br /> For many businesses, core IT systems don’t use wireless connectivity and wouldn’t be directly impacted. Console and remote connectivity to these core systems should require encrypted communications higher up OSI stack like SSH or TLS secured web consoles. So in many cases, this is an end-user device issue.<br /> To exploit the vulnerability, the attacker needs to be within Wi-Fi range of the network. If you’re confident with your physical security perimeter, this vulnerability becomes harder to exploit. </p> <p><strong>RESPONDING TO SOFTWARE VULNERABILITIES</strong></p> <p>Consider a twofold approach:</p> <p>Your security team should be monitoring the situation closely and plan to communicate specific patching requirements to the company. Information is notoriously bad in the first 24 hours of a major vulnerability, so it is important to keep looking for the latest information from trusted vendors. One thing is sure; the patching requirements will be widespread requiring every laptop, tablet and phone operating system to be updated on top of network infrastructure.<br /> Consider a monitoring strategy using vulnerability management programs to track your organization&#8217;s progress in applying the required patches. Also determine what tools your network vendors can provide to detect this vulnerability in action. Taking advantage of the vulnerability is pretty simple to detect using standard network tools like WIPS and rogue AP detection. This may turn into the best immediate mitigation strategy for corporate WiFi networks. </p> <p>After organizations gain traction with corporate end-user devices and have monitoring in place, change focus to less obvious targets like IoT devices and assisting team members with their personal APs and devices at home.</p> <p><strong>BEST PRACTICES FOR KEEPING YOUR SYSTEMS SAFE ON AN ONGOING BASIS</strong></p> <p>With the endless possibilities of things that can put your systems at risk, there are a few ways to offset threats and react efficiently and quickly the next time something makes your business vulnerable.</p> <p>Working with a trusted technology service provider is one step in the right direction. This combined with regular, automated patching and risk-based analysis is the foundation for responding to security vulnerabilities. We know widespread patching takes considerable time and effort to complete. Gather and analyze the data you need to provide assurance your systems aren’t being exploited between the time vulnerabilities are released and when they can be effectively patched.</p> <p><strong>Useful sources of information include:</strong><br /> <a href="https://www.krackattacks.com/">https://www.krackattacks.com/</a><br /> <a href="https://blogs.cisco.com/security/wpa-vulns">https://blogs.cisco.com/security/wpa-vulns</a></p> <p>*Note: The views expressed above are my own and draw on my years of expertise in IT security.</p> </div></div> Marc St. Louis https://blog.pythian.com/?p=102727 Mon Oct 16 2017 16:35:18 GMT-0400 (EDT) Steps to Apply Database Patch From OEM Cloud Control http://oracle-help.com/oracle-cloud/steps-apply-database-patch-oem-cloud-control/ <p>Being a <strong>Core DBA</strong> we have deep  knowledge about patching.On the internet we have lots of knowledge is available about patching.This patching is different from the normal one.

patch will be applied on top of that. And database will started from the new Oracle home. This is recommended method, because, it reduced DB downtime and also during patching to binary if some issue happens, then also the old ORACLE_HOME is intact.</p> <p><strong>– In place</strong> – Here

You&#8217;re going to hear other flavors, like SUSE, RedHat, Ubuntu and others, but there are minor differences in each, (even if those religiously loyal to one or an other swears on the details otherwise) at this point, knowing that they exist will help you get past this and move onto the important stuff.</p> <h3>Accessing a Linux System</h3> <p>You use a terminal to log into a Linux system.  <a href="http://www.putty.org/">Putty</a> is free and a favorite of most DBAs.  If you&#8217;re on Mac, then you can just use the <a href="http://www.dummies.com/computers/macs/mac-operating-systems/how-to-use-basic-unix-commands-to-work-in-terminal-on-your-mac/">Terminal</a> and log straight in.  We&#8217;ll get into Graphical UIs later on, but understanding the command line is essential for Linux.</p> <p>Linux has some basic information that surrounds OS users, logging in and permissions.  You SSH (secure shell) into a Linux host, just as you&#8217;ve done from Microsoft Windows.</p> <p>Also, just as in Windows, you must be able to &#8220;reach&#8221; the host or ping the host, just as you would with a Windows box:</p> <p>From putty or your terminal, test this with the DNS for the hostname or directly to the IP Address:</p> <pre>ping &lt;IP address or hostname&gt;</pre> <p>You log in with the following command:</p> <pre>ssh OSUsername@&lt;hostname or IP address&gt;</pre> <p>If it&#8217;s the first time you&#8217;ve logged into the host, it will ask you to add the routing address to your list and then you can confirm and you will log in.</p> <h3>The Linux File System</h3> <p>In Linux, everything is configured as a file.  Not just text files, but executables, directories and even device drivers.  Due to this, the way you, as a user view everything is a bit different than the kernel views the system.   Similar to Windows OS, there will be a clear hierarchal layout of all the files that culminate up to root, which is identified by a forward slash, &#8220;/&#8221;, unlike in Windows, identified by a back slash, (and yes, this will be a common typo you&#8217;ll be correcting as you go along&#8230; :))</p> <p>For the kernel, it doesn&#8217;t see the hierarchy and in its world, everything is very flat and identified by something called inodes. Each of these inodes have a number of unique identifiers that represent each file, each directory, each permission and so on and so forth.  It allows the kernel to identify, search, locate and perform any process very quickly.</p> <h3>OS Users and Groups</h3> <p>Along with Root, there are users created.  These are the logins and owners of files on the OS and each of these users are assigned to one or more groups that allow them a set of permissions to different file structures.  For the Oracle DBA, it is common to login as their username, (example dsmith) and then switch user, (command su) over to Oracle, (database and oracle installation owner) to perform critical tasks.</p> <p>Belonging to a group allows you to perform the same tasks and have grants to files in directories.  Each user has, (or should have) a home directory that contains their configuration files and aliases for the user.  You may have someone ask you what is in your profile or bash profile.  These files start with a &#8220;.&#8221; and aren&#8217;t available with a simple list command, which we&#8217;ll discuss next.</p> <h3>Beginning Commands</h3> <p>We&#8217;ll start with a few simple commands on the system now that you&#8217;re logged in</p> <p><strong>ls</strong> = list and is like dir, the directory command on Windows.</p> <p>The list command is something you&#8217;ll use often, even more so when you first start.  I don&#8217;t know how often I attempt to use &#8220;ls&#8221; on Windows and curse, then promptly type in &#8220;dir&#8221;.</p> <p><strong>ls -a</strong> will give you all the files, including hidden files.</p> <p><strong>ls -ltr</strong> will give you the files ordered from most recent and comes in quite handy for large directories.</p> <p><strong>pwd</strong> = current directory location.  You&#8217;ll need to know where you are, as you go down the rabbit hole, there&#8217;s rarely Alice to show you&#8230; <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p><strong>cd &lt;&gt;</strong> = change directory with additional arguments to fulfill the request.</p> <p><strong>cd</strong> without an argument will take you back to your home directory.</p> <p><strong>cd ..</strong> will take you to the directory one up from where you currently are.</p> <p><strong>cd &lt;new directory path&gt;</strong> will take you to that new directory</p> <h3>Users and Files</h3> <p>For each file and directory, there should be an owner and a group assigned to it.  We do this by using the change modify, (chmod) command and the change owner, (chown) commands which we&#8217;ll dig into in subsequent posts.  It&#8217;s important now for you to just simply understand the different categories:</p> <ul> <li>User/Owner=<strong>u</strong></li> <li>Group=<strong>g</strong></li> <li>Other=<strong>o</strong></li> <li>All Users=<strong>a</strong></li> </ul> <p>For permissions, there are three just like in Windows that can be assigned singularly or in combinations:</p> <ul> <li>Read</li> <li>Write</li> <li>Execute</li> </ul> <p>Where this can be confusing for some, is that we visibly identify the grants by their values, either as separate values or as totals.</p> <ul> <li>Read,(r)= <strong>4</strong></li> <li>Write,(w)= <strong>2</strong></li> <li>Execute, (x)=<strong>1</strong></li> </ul> <p>To give you an example, if you were to see the following file:</p> <p>test.sh is a shell file that has permissions 777.  This means that EVERYONE has permissions to read, write and execute test.sh.  Why?</p> <ul> <li>owner has 4+2+1=7</li> <li>group has 4+2+1=7</li> <li>other has 4+2+1=7</li> </ul> <p>You may see files that have values of &#8220;764&#8221;, which would be mean the owner can do anything, the group can read and write to the file and other can just read it.  Understanding these privileges is essential to a DBA so you can manage the privileges to system and data files, securing your database.</p> <p>We&#8217;ll dig into how to assign and update privileges to files in a later post, but I want you to start to recognize this information as we proceed forward understanding Linux.  Hopefully this was a great beginning and will give you a good foundation as we proceed forward into commands and navigating the Linux server.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

So, you need to plan carefully, consider your needs, and align them with the right technologies.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>What is a modern data warehouse? </strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">At Pythian we define a modern data warehouse as one that extends the functionality of a traditional data warehouse to a system that includes a data lake, built-in ETL</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">(extract, transform, load),</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">and support for advanced analytics and machine learning. It’s not one thing. It’s composed of several carefully selected technologies that work together to ingest, store, process and present data.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The result is a platform that is scalable, has the flexibility to support different data types, and enables analytics in addition to reporting.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><b>Options for modernizing </b></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are different strategies that you can apply in a data warehouse modernization project, from updating the current systems, completely replacing it, or expanding the existing data warehouse capabilities with complementary technologies. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While you can modernize on-premises using technologies like Oracle Exadata, many organizations are looking to highly scalable open-source options like the <a href="https://pythian.com/hadoop-consulting/">Hadoop</a> framework, or to flexible and cost-effective <a href="https://pythian.com/cloud-services/">cloud platforms</a>, to extend or replace their data warehouses. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The ability to access structured, semi-structured and unstructured data on-demand and to integrate a range of both internal and external data are easily accommodated by both Hadoop and cloud platforms. But the key issue with Hadoop is that it’s open source and requires you to build your data warehouse from the ground up. So while you save on hardware, engineering your solution can be costly. So it’s best to use Hadoop at a scale that justifies the engineering effort and expense.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><b>Benefits of Choosing the Cloud</b></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If your organization plans to keep all its critical data on-premise, it may be in the minority. </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Constellation Research</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> estimates that by 2020, 60 percent of mission-critical data will reside outside a business’ walls.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Moving to the cloud also provides a level of elasticity not available with on-premises solutions.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><b>Worried about security? Don’t be.</b></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Many companies, particularly those in traditional industries such as finance and insurance, have concerns about the security of data on the cloud, particularly PII (personally identifiable information). But gone are the days when a company’s data was all contained within its firewall. And if you think that statement isn’t true of your organization, think again. If you have company social media accounts or use SaaS for things such as CRM or marketing automation, you already have external data in the cloud.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><b>The dollars and sense of moving to the cloud</b></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Many organizations are abandoning the approach of purchasing large, expensive, proprietary appliances that are capitalized over several years. Cloud-based technologies that separate storage and compute are cheaper to operate, and they scale faster and more efficiently than the alternatives. In addition, cloud-based technologies promote innovation at a speed we’ve never seen before.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">With a cloud-based data warehouse, IT personnel can better support business objectives by enabling:</span></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">bigger and better functionality</span></li> <li style="fot-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">wider scope</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">improved user service</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">better business value</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Modernizing on the cloud reduces the time-to-answer and the cost-per-answer, supports an increasing number of data types, integrates enterprise data with external digital data, and supports self-service analytics.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In addition, cloud platforms provide </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">automation features to speed the integration of large data sets. And by enabling more users to access more data through self-service, cloud can help businesses </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">provide in-depth insights, enabling unique observations for business users with varying technical abilities across the organization. Empowering users with data can have a positive impact on your ability to compete, on the customer experience, and on employee performance and satisfaction.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><b>Ways to move to the cloud</b></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A data warehouse move to the cloud can take one of two directions: hosting on an IaaS platform or using a more fully featured DBaaS solution. The major providers—<a href="https://pythian.com/amazon-web-services/">Amazon Web Services (AWS)</a>, <a href="https://pythian.com/google-cloud-platform/">Google Cloud Platform (GCP)</a> and <a href="https://pythian.com/microsoft-azure/">Microsoft Azure</a>—offer solutions to manage everything from small data warehousing needs to very large workloads. These data warehouses limit the burden of administration to the organization while making capacity scaling easy.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>If you’re considering modernizing your data warehouse environment for analytics, download this eBook to determine if your existing warehouse is up to the challenge: </b></p> <p><a href="http://resources.pythian.com/10-signs-time-to-modernize-your-data-warehouse-ebook"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-102718" src="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog.png" alt="10 Signs It's Time to Modernize Your Data Warehouse eBook Download Link" width="650" height="200" srcset="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog.png 650w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog-300x92.png 300w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog-360x111.png 360w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog-465x143.png 465w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/10-signs-dwm-ebook-cta-blog-350x108.png 350w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a></p> </div></div> Beth Johnson https://blog.pythian.com/?p=102717 Thu Oct 12 2017 22:18:51 GMT-0400 (EDT) Can you run Hadoop in the cloud?

Between Hadoop, cloud-based, and hybrid solutions, finding the best option for their unique needs can be a daunting challenge.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Sometimes Hadoop is the answer, and sometimes a cloud solution is a better fit. Determining the right direction requires us to consider multiple factors including the specific need, use case(s), budget, available resources within the organization and data volume, to name a few.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">With this post, I’m going to try to answer some of the most common questions presented to us by clients, including: At what point is big data big enough to require a system like Hadoop? What are its limitations? How does it compare to cloud? And can you run Hadoop on the cloud? </span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>The cost and benefits of Hadoop</strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hadoop is ideal for batch processing terabyte to petabyte scale. Because Hadoop can store and process any type of data, from plain text files to binary files like images, or different versions of data collected over time, it’s ideal if your use case requires you to store large volumes of unstructured data. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">On the surface, it appears to be a cost-effective way to handle these big data workloads because it uses commodity clusters, and can scale from a single cluster to thousands of clusters. And the software itself is open-source, so it’s free.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But on the other hand, Hadoop is not a single solution—it’s a framework that requires you to build your data warehouse from the ground up. That means your solution can cost a lot of time and require specialized engineering resources. But once it’s built, you can continue to scale to suit your needs. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;"><a href="http://resources.pythian.com/three-powerful-use-cases-hadoop-ebook?utm_campaign=Three%20Powerful%20Use%20Cases%20for%20Hadoop%20eBook%20-%20Nov%202016&amp;utm_medium=resources%20page&amp;utm_source=website">In our eBook “Three Powerful Use Cases for Hadoop”</a> we go into more depth about the situations Hadoop can be leveraged in your organization.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>How Hadoop has helped evolve big data in the cloud</strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Many Hadoop ecosystem projects are easily reusable in the cloud and have been widely adopted in cloud architectures. Most notably, Spark and Kafka were developed as part of the Hadoop ecosystem, but they have adapted even better to the cloud than to the environment for which they were originally built. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">So how do you handle large data sets that include existing Hadoop environments?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Spark and Kafka work very well on the cloud alongside other scalable message bus systems like Google Pub/Sub, Amazon Kinesis, or Azure EventData Hub.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are also some good distributed SQL engines built for the cloud, including Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery and Azure SQL Data Warehouse. These are better alternatives for running SQL workloads than Hadoop. </span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>Can you run Hadoop in the cloud?</strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Technically yes, but <a href="https://pythian.com/resources/videos/hadoop-cloud/">cloud and Hadoop architectures were created for different purposes</a>. While Hadoop was really meant for physical data centers, cloud environments were built to provide better elasticity and speed of source provisioning.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Maintaining a large permanent cluster in the cloud is expensive, especially at scale. So to run a permanent HDFS you might need to use cloud storage solutions and other SQL engine alternatives.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Another challenge is that there is really no universal solution to support security. While you might have a preferred cloud solution from one vendor, your Hadoop vendor may use another cloud platform. Using a mix of solutions can result in a steep learning curve, and possibly switching costs. And when it comes to ephemeral clusters in the cloud, governance and security become even more challenging. There is not yet an ideal solution to resolve them. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">So yes, it is possible, but the costs and barriers that are created when you run Hadoop in the cloud generally make alternatives more appropriate.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>How does Hadoop perform in the cloud? </strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">If you compare Hadoop to cloud-native solutions from a VM-to-VM perspective, or from a machine-to-machine perspective for the clusters of the same size and same configuration, you can see that cloud providers have made significant advances.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You can likely achieve similar performance, if not maybe slightly lower performance in the cloud than you would on bare metal. But in reality there is more to cloud economics than just performance.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rather than adopting a Hadoop framework in the cloud, you might consider some of the alternative architectures that provide scalability features (like cloud SQL engines) that are not available with Hadoop ecosystems. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While you can achieve similar performance, there are simply better alternatives for meeting your large-scale data processing needs than implementing Hadoop clusters in the cloud. </span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>The bottom line: Going straight to the cloud for big data analytics</strong></h3> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">While Hadoop on it’s own is a reliable, scalable solution, the engineering costs and the inefficiencies associated with batch-processing queries aren’t appropriate for most use cases. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">And as for implementing Hadoop in the cloud, you may end up needlessly building something from scratch that was already available as a service from one of the major cloud platform providers. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This is something we experienced first hand during a recent client project where we migrated a large on-premise Hadoop cluster with petabytes of data into a Google Cloud Platform. Once the migration was complete not much was left of the original Hadoop architecture. There were some basic Spark jobs that we could run on the elastic clusters in the cloud, but there was no need to maintain this permanent cluster for the long term.</span></p> <hr /><p><em>“When it comes to #bigdata, many companies are skipping Hadoop and going straight to cloud.”</em><br /><a href='https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?url=https://wp.me/p1jKsB-qIz&#038;text=%E2%80%9CWhen%20it%20comes%20to%20%23bigdata%2C%20many%20companies%20are%20skipping%20Hadoop%20and%20going%20straight%20to%20cloud.%E2%80%9D&#038;via=pythian&#038;related=pythian' target='_blank' >Click To Tweet</a><br /><hr /> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Companies are increasingly looking to adopt big data solutions, but many of them are skipping Hadoop entirely and jumping straight to a cloud solution for these reasons. So when you start planning for your next big data project, it is important that you consider cloud-based solutions as an alternative to Hadoop—you may just find that it meets your needs faster and at a lower cost. </span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><a href="http://resources.pythian.com/webinar/taking-your-data-analytics-to-the-cloud-video">Download this webinar</a> to discover the benefits many businesses are currently reaping by taking their data and analytics to the cloud.</strong></p> <p><a href="http://resources.pythian.com/webinar/taking-your-data-analytics-to-the-cloud-video"><img class="alignnone wp-image-102712" src="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud.png" alt="" width="717" height="269" srcset="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud.png 800w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud-300x113.png 300w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud-360x135.png 360w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud-465x174.png 465w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/On-demand-Webinar-Taking-your-data-and-analytics-to-the-cloud-350x131.png 350w" sizes="(max-width: 717px) 100vw, 717px" /></a></p> </div></div> Danil Zburivsky https://blog.pythian.com/?p=102707 Thu Oct 12 2017 22:08:04 GMT-0400 (EDT) JSON manipulation in Java 9 JShell https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/12/json-manipulation-in-java-9-jshell/ <p>In this article I will demonstrate how we can work with JSON based data – for analysis, exploration, cleansing and processing – in JShell, much like we do in Python. I work with a JSON document with entries for all sessions at the Oracle OpenWorld 2017 conference (<a title="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lucasjellema/scrape-oow17/master/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json" href="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lucasjellema/scrape-oow17/master/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json">https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lucasjellema/scrape-oow17/master/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json</a>)</p> <p>The Java 9 SE specification for the JDK does not contain the JSON-P API and libraries for processing JSON. In order to work with JSON-P in JShell, we need to add the libraries – that we first need to find and download.</p> <p>I have used a somewhat roundabout way to get hold of the required jar-files (but it works in a pretty straightforward manner):</p> <p>1. Create a pom.xml file with dependencies on JSON-P</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-101.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-100.png?resize=702%2C113&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-102.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-101.png?resize=518%2C412&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>2. Then run</p> <blockquote><p>mvn install dependency:copy-dependencies</p></blockquote> <p>as described in this article: <a title="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/02/09/download-all-directly-and-indirectly-required-jar-files-using-maven-install-dependencycopy-dependencies/" href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/02/09/download-all-directly-and-indirectly-required-jar-files-using-maven-install-dependencycopy-dependencies/">https://technology.amis.nl/2017/02/09/download-all-directly-and-indirectly-required-jar-files-using-maven-install-dependencycopy-dependencies/</a></p> <p>this will download the relevant JAR files to subdirectory target/dependencies</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-103.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-102.png?resize=702%2C84&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>3. Copy JAR files to a directory – that can be accessed from within the Docker container that runs JShell – for me that is the local lib directory that is mapped by Vagrant and Docker to /var/www/lib inside the Docker container that runs JShell.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>4. In the container that runs JShell:</p> <p>Start JShell with this statement that makes the new httpclient module available, for when the JSON document is retrieved from an HTTP URL resource:</p> <blockquote><p>jshell &#8211;add-modules jdk.incubator.httpclient</p></blockquote> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>5. Update classpath from within jshell</p> <p>To process JSON in JShell – using JSON-P – we need set the classpath to include the two jar files that were downloaded using Maven.</p> <blockquote><p>/env &#8211;class-path /var/www/lib/javax.json-1.1.jar:/var/www/lib/javax.json-api-1.1.jar</p></blockquote> <p>Then the classes in JSON-P are imported</p> <blockquote><p>import javax.json.*;</p></blockquote> <p>if we need to retrieve JSON data from a URL resource, we should also</p> <blockquote><p>import jdk.incubator.http.*;</p></blockquote> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>6. I have made the JSON document available on the file system.</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-104.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-103.png?resize=477%2C412&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>It can be accessed as follows:</p> <blockquote><p>InputStream input = new FileInputStream(&#8220;/var/www/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json&#8221;);</p></blockquote> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>7. Parse data from file into JSON Document, get the root object and retrieve the array of sessions:</p> <blockquote><p>JsonReader jsonReader = Json.createReader(input)</p> <p>JsonObject rootJSON = jsonReader.readObject();</p> <p>JsonArray sessions = rootJSON.getJsonArray(&#8220;sessions&#8221;);</p></blockquote> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>8. Filter sessions with the term SQL in the title and print their title to the System output – using Streams:</p> <blockquote><p>sessions.stream().map( p -&gt; (JsonObject)p).filter(s -&gt;  s.getString(&#8220;title&#8221;).contains(&#8220;SQL&#8221;)) .forEach( s -&gt; {System.out.println(s.getString(&#8220;title&#8221;));})</p></blockquote> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-105.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-104.png?resize=702%2C397&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p></blockquote> <p>One other example: show a list of all presentations for which a slidedeck has been made available for download along with the download URL:</p> <p>sessions.stream()</p> <p>.map( p -&gt; (JsonObject)p)</p> <p>.filter(s -&gt; s.containsKey(&#8220;files&#8221;) &amp;&amp; !s.isNull(&#8220;files&#8221;) &amp;&amp; !(s.getJsonArray(&#8220;files&#8221;).isEmpty()))</p> <p>.forEach( s -&gt; {System.out.println(s.getString(&#8220;title&#8221;)+&#8221; url:&#8221;+s.getJsonArray(&#8220;files&#8221;).getJsonObject(0).getString(&#8220;url&#8221;));})</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Bonus: Do HTTP Request</h3> <p>As an aside some steps in jshell to execute an HTTP request:</p> <p>jshell&gt; HttpClient client = HttpClient.newHttpClient();<br /> client ==&gt; jdk.incubator.http.HttpClientImpl@4d339552</p> <p>jshell&gt; HttpRequest request = HttpRequest.newBuilder(URI.create(&#8220;<a href="http://www.google.com&quot;)).GET().build();">http://www.google.com&#8221;)).GET().build();</a><br /> request ==&gt; <a href="http://www.google.com">http://www.google.com</a> GET</p> <p>jshell&gt; HttpResponse response = client.send(request, HttpResponse.BodyHandler.asString())<br /> response ==&gt; jdk.incubator.http.HttpResponseImpl@147ed70f</p> <p>jshell&gt; System.out.println(response.body())<br /> &lt;HTML&gt;&lt;HEAD&gt;&lt;meta http-equiv=&#8221;content-type&#8221; content=&#8221;text/html;charset=utf-8&#8243;&gt;<br /> &lt;TITLE&gt;302 Moved&lt;/TITLE&gt;&lt;/HEAD&gt;&lt;BODY&gt;<br /> &lt;H1&gt;302 Moved&lt;/H1&gt;<br /> The document has moved<br /> &lt;A HREF=&#8221;<a href="http://www.google.nl/?gfe_rd=cr&amp;amp;dcr=0&amp;amp;ei=S2XeWcbPFpah4gTH6Lb4Ag&quot;">http://www.google.nl/?gfe_rd=cr&amp;amp;dcr=0&amp;amp;ei=S2XeWcbPFpah4gTH6Lb4Ag&#8221;</a>&gt;here&lt;/A&gt;.<br /> &lt;/BODY&gt;&lt;/HTML&gt;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-106.png?ssl=1"><img style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" title="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-105.png?resize=702%2C274&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/12/json-manipulation-in-java-9-jshell/">JSON manipulation in Java 9 JShell</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl">AMIS Oracle and Java Blog</a>.</p> Lucas Jellema https://technology.amis.nl/?p=46506 Thu Oct 12 2017 10:38:00 GMT-0400 (EDT) MAF: Be careful how you build your APK http://lucbors.blogspot.com/2017/10/maf-be-careful-how-you-build-your-apk.html Luc Bors tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-29432516.post-2431206621959879392 Thu Oct 12 2017 09:24:00 GMT-0400 (EDT) Changing Logfiles Permission of WebLogic and Node Manager Logfiles to 644 http://dirknachbar.blogspot.com/2017/10/changing-logfiles-permission-of.html In some cases you will need to align the Logfile permissions of the Oracle WebLogic Server (12.2.1.1 and 12.2.1.2) and Node Manager generated Logfiles to 644 (-rw-r--r--), so that for example Monitoring Tools like Patrol can access and monitor the WebLogic Server Logfiles with another OS user as the Oracle Software Installation user.<br /><br />Just take a look on the Start Script startWebLogic.sh under your $DOMAIN_HOME/bin and the startNodeManager.sh under $ORACLE_HOME/wlserver/server/bin.

For on-disk tracing, we have many events like <strong>10046</strong> (sql_trace), <strong>10053</strong> (sql_optimizer), etc. Different to these on-disk tracing, <strong>KST</strong> tracing use a cyclic buffer in the SGA and we won&#8217;t create a large trace file and thus avoid filling customer disk, as well as avoid expensive disk IO to write the trace file. When a problem happens, the in-memory <strong>KST</strong> trace buffer is written to a trace file and is available for support and development to diagnose a problem.</p> <p><strong>KST</strong> tracing feature is enabled by default, and some trace events are always enabled. Several <strong>RDBMS</strong> components use this feature, and most of them can be set by an event syntax using an event number.<br /> Please note the <strong>KST</strong> trace event is different from on-disk tracing, and some of them require a different form to set the event. Mostly we don&#8217;t have the same event as available for on-disk tracing.</p> <p>Each process has a cyclic buffer for itself in the <strong>SGA</strong>. Recent <strong>KST</strong> trace record is kept in the buffer and other processes can see the buffer also. Even when a process is dead, its <strong>KST</strong> trace record can be dumped by another process.</p> <p><strong>When is the KST trace buffer written to disk ? </strong></p> <p>The <strong>KST trace</strong> buffer is usually dumped in following cases:</p> <p>When an <strong>ORA-600</strong> or <strong>ORA-7445</strong> error happens<br /> If the diag process is available, the victim process dumps its own <strong>KST</strong> trace to a trace file, and the diag process tries to dump the <strong>KST</strong> trace of all processes into the <strong>cdmp</strong> directory.<br /> On 10.2 non-RAC environment, the diag process is not used. In this case, the victim process dumps the KST trace of all processes to the victim process trace file</p> <p><strong>Note: </strong><br /> this <strong>KST</strong> trace dump is invoked by the &#8220;errorstack&#8221; event with level &gt;= 3, which is automatically raised by a fatal error like <strong>ORA-600</strong> or ORA-7445.</p> <p>When instance aborted on one RAC node<br /> In this case, <strong>diag</strong> process on all node tries to dump <strong>KST</strong> trace of all processes into <strong>cdmp</strong> directory.</p> <p>To change the enable the <strong>KST</strong> Tracing, we need to modify below hidden parameter</p> <p><strong>alter system set &#8220;_trace_dump_cur_proc_only&#8221;=TRUE scope=both; </strong></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><em><strong>Conclusion</strong>: </em></span></p> <p><strong>KST</strong> tracing feature is enabled by default, and some trace events are always enabled.

In this article, I will use that environment to take few small steps with Java 9 – in particular with modules. Note:this story does not end well. I wanted to conclude with using jlink to create a stand alone runtime that contained both the required JDK modules and my own module – and demonstrate how small that runtime was. Unfortunately, the Link step failed for me. More news on that in a later article.</p> <p></p> <h3>Create Custom Module</h3> <p>Start a container based on the openjdk:9 image, exposing its port 80 on the docker host machine and mapping folder /vagrant (mapped from my Windows host to the Docker Host VirtualBox Ubuntu image) to /var/www inside the container:</p> <blockquote> <p>docker run -it -p 127.0.0.1:8080:80 -v /vagrant:/var/www openjdk:9 /bin/sh</p> </blockquote> <p></p> <p>Create Java application with custom module:&nbsp; I create a single Module (nl.amis.j9demo) and a single class nl.amis.j9demo.MyDemo. The module depends directly on one JDK module (httpserver) and indirectly on several more. </p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-91.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-90.png?resize=527%2C238&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a>The root directory for the module has the same fully qualified name as the module: nl.amis.j9demo.</p> <p>This directory contains the module-info.java file. This file specifies:</p> <ul> <li>which modules this module depends on</li> <li>which packages it exports (for other modules to create dependencies on)</li> </ul> <p>In my example, the file is very simple – only specifying a dependency on jdk.httpserver:</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-92.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-91.png?resize=353%2C116&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>The Java Class MyDemo has a number of imports. Many are for base classes from the java.base module. Note: every Java module has a implicit dependency on java.base, so we do not need to include it in the modue-info.java file.</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-93.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-92.png?resize=398%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>This code create an instance of HttpServer – an object that listens for HTTP Requests at the specified port (80 in this case) and then always returns the same response (the string “This is the response”). As meaningless as that is – the notion of receiving and replying to HTTP Requests in just few lines of Java Code (running in the OpenJDK!) is quite powerful.</p> <p><pre class="brush: java; title: ; notranslate"> package nl.amis.j9demo; import java.io.*; import java.net.*; import java.util.*; import java.util.concurrent.*; import java.util.stream.*; import com.sun.net.httpserver.*; import static java.lang.System.out; import static java.net.HttpURLConnection.*; public class MyDemo{ private static final int DEFAULT_PORT = 80; private static URI ROOT_PATH = URI.create(&quot;/&quot;); private static class MyHandler implements HttpHandler { public void handle(HttpExchange t) throws IOException { URI tu = t.getRequestURI(); InputStream is = t.getRequestBody(); // .. read the request body String response = &quot;This is the response&quot;; t.sendResponseHeaders(200, response.length()); OutputStream os = t.getResponseBody(); os.write(response.getBytes()); os.close(); } } public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException { HttpServer server = HttpServer.create(new InetSocketAddress(DEFAULT_PORT), 0); server.createContext(&quot;/apps &quot;, new MyHandler()); server.setExecutor(null); // creates a default executor server.start(); out.println(&quot;HttpServer is started, listening at port &quot;+DEFAULT_PORT); } } </pre> </p> <p></p> <h3>Compile, Build and Run</h3> <p>Compile the custom module:</p> <blockquote> <p>javac -d mods &#8211;module-source-path src -m nl.amis.j9demo</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-94.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-93.png?resize=489%2C248&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Create destination directory for JAR file</p> <blockquote> <p>mkdir -p lib</p> </blockquote> <p>Create the JAR for the module:</p> <blockquote> <p>jar &#8211;create &#8211;file lib/nl-amis-j9demo.jar &#8211;main-class nl.amis.j9demo.MyDemo -C mods/nl.amis.j9demo .</p> <p></p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-95.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-94.png?resize=513%2C184&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Inspect the JAR file:</p> <blockquote> <p>jar tvf lib/nl-amis-j9demo.jar</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-96.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-95.png?resize=671%2C210&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>To run the Java application- with a reference to the module:</p> <blockquote> <p>java –p lib/ -m nl.amis.j9demo</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-97.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-96.png?resize=405%2C127&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>the traditional equivalent with a classpath for the JAR file(s) would be:</p> <blockquote> <p>java -classpath lib/nl-amis-j9demo.jar nl.amis.j9demo.MyDemo</p> </blockquote> <p>Because port 80 in the container was exposed and mapped to port 8080 on the Docker Host, we can access the Java application from the Docker Host, using wget:</p> <blockquote> <p>wget 127.0.0.1:8080/apps</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-98.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-97.png?resize=702%2C305&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> </p> <p>The response from the Java application is hardly meaningful However, the fact that we get a response at all is quite something: the ‘remote’&nbsp; container based on openjdk:9 has published an HTTP server from our custom module that we can access from the Docker Host with a simple HTTP request.</p> <h3>Jlink</h3> <p>I tried to use jlink – to create a special runtime for my demo app, consisting of required parts of JDK and my own module.

Some of these:</p> <ul> <li>Java 9 is here, </li> <li>the OpenJDK has all previously exclusive commercial features from the Oracle (fka SUN) JDK – this includes the Java Flight Recorder for real time monitoring/metrics gathering and analysis, </li> <li>Java 9 will be succeeded by Java 18.3, 18.9 and so on (a six month cadence) with much quicker evolution with continued quality and stability</li> <li>JigSaw is finally here; it powers the coming evolution of Java and the platform and it allows us to create fine tuned, tailor more Java runtime environments that may take less than 10-20% of the full blown JRE</li> <li>Java 9 has many cool and valuable features besides the Modularity of JigSaw – features that make programming easier, more elegant more fun more lightweight etc.</li> <li>One of the objectives is “Java First, Java Always” (instead of: when web companies mature, then they switch to Java) (having Java enabled for cloud, microsevice and serverless is an important step in this) <p>Note: during the JavaOne Keynote, Spotify presented a great example of this pattern: they have a microservices architecture (from before it was called microservice); most were originally created in Python, with the exception of the search capability; due to scalability challenges, all Python based microservices have been migrated to Java over the years. The original search service is still around. Java not only scales very well and has the largest pool of developers to draw from, it also provides great run time insight into what is going on in the JVM</p> </li> </ul> <p>I have played around a little with Java 9 but now that is out in the open (and I have started working on a fresh new laptop – Windows 10) I thought I should give it another try. In this article I will describe the steps I took from a non Java enabled Windows environment to playing with Java 9 in jshell – in an isolated container, created and started without any programming, installation or configuration. I used Vagrant and VirtualBox – both were installed on my laptop prior to the exercise described in this article. Vagrant in turn used Docker and downloaded the OpenJDK Docker image for Java 9 on top of Alpine Linux. All of that was hidden from view.</p> <p>The steps:</p> <p>0. Preparation – install VirtualBox and Vagrant</p> <p>1. Create Vagrant file – configured to provide a VirtualBox image (based on Ubuntu Linux) and provision the Docker host on that image as well as a Docker Container with OpenJDK 9</p> <p>2. Run Vagrant for that Vagrant file to have it spin up the VirtualBox, install Docker into it, pull the OpenJDK image and run the container</p> <p>3. Connect into VirtualBox Docker Host and Docker Container</p> <p>4. Run jshell command line and try out some Java 9 statements</p> <p></p> <p>In more detail:</p> <h3>1. Create Vagrant file </h3> <p>In a new directory, create a file called Vagrantfile – no extension. The file has the following content:</p> <p></p> <p>It is configured to provide a VirtualBox image (based on Ubuntu Linux) and provision the Docker host on that VB image as well as a Docker Container based on the OpenJDK:9 image.</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-83.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-82.png?resize=702%2C368&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p><pre class="brush: bash; title: ; notranslate"> Vagrant.configure(&quot;2&quot;) do |config| config.vm.provision &quot;docker&quot; do |d| d.run &quot;j9&quot;, image: &quot;openjdk:9&quot;, cmd: &quot;/bin/sh&quot;, args: &quot;-v '/vagrant:/var/www'&quot; d.remains_running = true end # The following line terminates all ssh connections. Therefore Vagrant will be forced to reconnect. # That's a workaround to have the docker command in the PATH # Command: &quot;docker&quot; &quot;ps&quot; &quot;-a&quot; &quot;-q&quot; &quot;--no-trunc&quot; # without it, I run into this error: # Stderr: Get http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.19/containers/json?all=1: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: permission denied. # Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS? config.vm.provision &quot;shell&quot;, inline: &quot;ps aux | grep 'sshd:' | awk '{print $2}' | xargs kill&quot; config.vm.define &quot;dockerhostvm&quot; config.vm.box = &quot;ubuntu/trusty64&quot; config.vm.network &quot;private_network&quot;, ip: &quot;192.168.188.102&quot; config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |vb| vb.name = &quot;dockerhostvm&quot; vb.memory = 4096 vb.cpus = 2 vb.customize [&quot;modifyvm&quot;, :id, &quot;--natdnshostresolver1&quot;, &quot;on&quot;] vb.customize [&quot;modifyvm&quot;, :id, &quot;--natdnsproxy1&quot;, &quot;on&quot;] end end # to get into running container: # vagrant ssh # docker run -it -v /vagrant:/var/www openjdk:9 /bin/sh </pre> <h3>2. Run Vagrant for that Vagrant file </h3> <p>And have it spin up the VirtualBox, install Docker into it, pull the OpenJDK image and run the container:</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-84.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-83.png?resize=441%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <h3>3. Connect into VirtualBox Docker Host and Docker Container</h3> <p>Using</p> <p>vagrant ssh</p> <p>to connect into the VirtualBox Ubuntu Host and </p> <p>docker run –it openjdk:9 /bin/sh</p> <p>to run a container and connect into the shell command line, we get to the environment primed for running Java 9:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-85.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-84.png?resize=702%2C138&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>At this point, I should also be able to use docker exec to get into the container that started by the Vagrant Docker provisioning configuration. However, I had some unresolved issues with that – the container kept restarting. I will attempt to resolve that issue.</p> <h3>4. Run jshell command line and try out some Java 9 statements</h3> <p>JShell is the new Java command line tool that allows REPL style exploration – somewhat similar to for example Python and JavaScript (and even SQL*Plus).</p> <p>Here is an example of some JShell interaction:</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-86.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-85.png?resize=448%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>I tried to use the new simple syntax for creating collections from static data. Here I got the syntax right:</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-87.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-86.png?resize=570%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>It took me a little time to find out the exit strategy. Turns out that /exit does that trick:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-88.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-87.png?resize=348%2C229&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>In summary: spinning up a clean, isolated environment in which to try out Java is not hard at all. On Linux – with Docker running natively – it is even simpler, although even then using Vagrant may be beneficial. On Windows it is also quite straightforward – no complex sys admin stuff required and hardly any command line things either. And that is something we developers should start to master – if we do not do so already.</p> <p></p> <h3>Issue with Docker Provider in Vagrant</h3> <p>Note: I did not succeed in using the Docker provider (instead of the provisioner) with Vagrant. Attempting that (cleaner) approach failed with “Bringing machine &#8216;j9&#8217; up with &#8216;docker&#8217; provider&#8230;<br /> The executable &#8216;docker&#8217; Vagrant is trying to run was not<br /> found in the %PATH% variable. This is an error. Please verify<br /> this software is installed and on the path.” I have looked across the internet, found similar reports but did not find a solutio that worked for me.</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-89.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-88.png?resize=568%2C110&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>The provider is documented here: <a title="https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/docker/" href="https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/docker/">https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/docker/</a></p> <p>The Vagrantfile I tried to use originally – but was unable to get to work:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-90.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-89.png?resize=702%2C227&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>(based on my own previous article: <a title=" https://technology.amis.nl/2015/08/22/first-steps-with-provisioning-of-docker-containers-using-vagrant-as-provider/" href=" https://technology.amis.nl/2015/08/22/first-steps-with-provisioning-of-docker-containers-using-vagrant-as-provider/"> https://technology.amis.nl/2015/08/22/first-steps-with-provisioning-of-docker-containers-using-vagrant-as-provider/</a>)</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/11/quick-and-clean-start-with-java-9-running-docker-container-in-virtualbox-vm-on-windows-10-courtesy-of-vagrant/">Quick and clean start with Java 9&ndash;running Docker container in VirtualBox VM on Windows 10 courtesy of Vagrant</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl">AMIS Oracle and Java Blog</a>.</p> Lucas Jellema https://technology.amis.nl/?p=46465 Wed Oct 11 2017 09:25:11 GMT-0400 (EDT) EMCLI Command – OEM 12C http://oracle-help.com/articles/emcli-command-oem-12c/ <p>This post is about the commands which is used by Oracle DBA during using OEM 12c.</p> <p>EMCLI – Enterprise Command Line Interface.

This is the story that he wrote for his children and grandchildren a few years ago describing his experiences as a Naval engineer on the aircraft carrier HMS Indefatigable during the second world war.</em></p> <h3 style="text-align:center;"><u>ROY</u><u>&#8216;S NAVAL CAREER </u></h3> <p>When war broke out on 3rd September 1939 I wanted to join the Navy, and a few days later I saw a  new recruiting office near Southend Pier so I went in and asked how I would be able to join. A Petty Officer looked at me and said &#8220;Well, sonny, you will have to wait until you are 18&#8221;. I was then only 17 so I continued with my plan to become an engineer. In those days parents either had to pay the full cost of university education or rely on their children gaining scholarships. In my case scholarships were essential. So, concentrating on mathematics, I took Higher School Certificate (A-Levels) in July 1938 and July 1939, but did not gain any scholarships. At that time I was Head Boy at Lindisfarne College and in late September the school was evacuated to North Wales from the Southend area because of fears of bombing and invasion but here the buildings were not well equipped and there was no laboratory. However, the Southend High School remained at Southend and arrangements were made to transfer me there.</p> <p>In December 1939 I was awarded a Scholarship at Queens&#8217; College, Cambridge. Then in May 1940 when the German blitzkrieg started the High School was evacuated to Mansfield in the Midlands, but there I took the HSC again and as a result gained a State Scholarship and a Southend Borough Major Scholarship, which in total was enough to see me through Cambridge. There I made friends with Denis Campbell, Stuart Glass and Edward Higham. In addition to lectures we went regularly to tutorials with a great character called (Professor) Archie Browne. He had additional duties as Steward of the College, and was responsible for obtaining food supplies and coal for heating, which was very difficult in wartime.</p> <p>The course was completed in two years and, with blackouts, air raid precautions and other restrictions, social life was limited. I joined the Naval Section of the Cadet Corps and the Home Guard which took up one or two afternoons each week. I remember one exercise where we had to make a mock attack by night on an airfield some ten miles north of Cambridge. The defenders somehow knew that we would attack the SE corner and mustered there, but we made a mistake and went for the NE corner which was undefended, so we theoretically captured that bit of airfield! We had to march there and back, and the blisters lasted for weeks. On another exercise Cambridge was attacked by the Welch Fusiliers, I remember being knocked on the head and falling into a ditch half full of water. I was considered a casualty and allowed to return to college for a hot bath.</p> <p><strong><u>July &#8211; September 1942</u></strong>         I applied to join the Royal Navy as an engineer officer and had interviews at the Admiralty including medical examinations. As a result I was accepted and appointed a Probationary Temporary Acting Sub.Lieutenant (E) RNVR, and the next step was to purchase my uniform at Gieves in London, including the purple stripe denoting engineering.</p> <p><strong><u>October 1942</u></strong>         I reported to Portsmouth Barracks for four weeks training. I wore my uniform for the first time at Warminster in Wiltshire where we were living, and traveled to Portsmouth without any knowledge of how to make or receive naval salutes in public! This was soon rectified at Portsmouth where I joined twenty other trainees for the course which included instruction in naval customs and traditions, rules and regulations, security, and the all-embracing Kings Regulations and Admiralty Instructions. We also had training in small arms firing and endless square bashing under the eagle eye of Chief Petty Officer Sims, who was as tough as old boots.</p> <p><strong><u>November 1942 &#8211; November 1943</u></strong>         I was posted to John Brown&#8217;s Engineering Works at Clydebank with Donald Townend and Ian Richardson for practical marine engineering training. John Brown&#8217;s was a huge organisation which built engines as well as ships, and just after we arrived Indefatigable was launched. This was an amazing sight, seeing 30,000 tons of ship slide down the slipway into the river Clyde. Before the war the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth were built on the same slipway.</p> <p>The three of us were billeted with two or three other naval officers in lodgings at Glasgow where we three shared a room and were looked after by a homely landlady and her staff. Every morning we put on civilian clothes and caught a rickety old tram for a 30 minute journey to Clyde bank. There we worked successively in the Pattern-shop (making wood moulds), Foundry, Boiler-shop (being deafened by riveting), Machine-shop, Fitting-shop, Pipe-shop, Drawing Office and Dockyard. We did actually work, scraping bearings, operating lathes, casting metal, always under the supervision of an experienced workman. During lunch hours we used to climb over Indefat, deafened again by riveting, but we got to know the ship. At that time the yard was completing R class destroyers at the rate of about one every fortnight, and we used to take part in their initial sea trials so gaining experience of firing up boilers and operating turbine plant.</p> <p>During the summer of 1943 we got to know the permanent RN engineer officers appointed to supervise the fitting out of the ship, including Peter Sandison who looked after the flight deck gear. We were seconded to help the checking of the installation and testing of all kinds of machinery, and in November I was chosen to be officially appointed to Indefat, while the other two went off to other ships.</p> <p><strong><u>December 1943 &#8211; February 1944</u></strong>         The ship was commissioned on 8th December and taken over by the RN from the yard. After dock trials we steamed down the Clyde and carried out various trials including full power of the 148,000 HP engines, the measured mile speed test (32 knots) off the Isle of Arran, and steering and going astern trials from full ahead. I remember on one occasion the steering gear locked solid at hard-a-starboard while doing full speed. We went round in circles flying two black balls showing we were out of control! Several weeks were spent commissioning and training the crew, taking on stores and ammunition, gunnery practice, testing of radar and flight deck equipment, while some time was spent at sea.</p> <p><strong><u>March &#8211; June 1944</u></strong>         The first aircraft flew in on 23rd March, and thereafter the squadrons began to arrive. We spent days at sea practising aircraft landings and by the end of June we had a complement of some 75 aircraft including Seafires, Fireflies and Hellcats. When at sea engineer officers kept watch for four hours at a time, the middle watch (midnight to 4 am) and the morning watch (4 am to 8 am) being the worst. During a watch we had to visit each engine room and boiler room, and altogether a total of seventeen machinery spaces where each involved climbing up and down three sets of ladders, as the only passage was via the main deck. The best visit was always to a boiler room, where the Chief Stoker would provide a mug of &#8216;kai&#8217;, a chocolate slab heated in hot water and steam.</p> <p>In addition each officer had responsibility for a department which included the operation and maintenance of all the equipment in it, and the men carrying out this work. Over the years mine included seven steam generators supplying electricity to the ship, three emergency diesel generators, motor boats, steering gear and auxiliary machinery including the big evaporators for making the ship&#8217;s fresh water from seawater. Also every six months each officer took it in turn to run the ship&#8217;s laundry for 2000 crew!</p> <p>At Action Stations if not on watch each engineer officer had a Damage Control section of the ship to look after. Mine was the midships section above one of the engine rooms, and my team consisted of about ten stokers and technicians. We might be stationed there all day with only sandwiches and &#8216;Spotted Dick&#8217; for lunch!</p> <p><strong><u>July &#8211; October 1944</u></strong>         Indefat joined the Fleet at Scapa Flow surrounded by battleships, cruisers and destroyers, and spent much time at sea on Russian convoy escort duty going beyond the Arctic Circle. In July we made an attack on the largest German battleship Tirpitz, which was moored in a Norwegian fiord and was always a potential menace to Russian convoys. This operation was called MASCOT and with two other carriers the aircraft carrying out the attack included 44 Barracudas, 18 Hellcats and 12 Fireflies, supported by many Seafires as fighter escorts. The weather was not good with cloud and fog around and although the Tirpitz was damaged it was decided to make another attack in mid-August. Prior to that strikes were made against some installations on the Norwegian coast and then on 18th August we sailed for the second Tirpitz attack called operation GOODWOOD. At this time a valuable convoy was en route to Russia and our job was to protect it from the Tirpitz and Uboats. The convoy did arrive safely.</p> <p>Indefat aircraft included 12 Barracudas, 12 Fireflies, 12 Hellcats and 32 Seafires, and the ship was accompanied by Formidable, Furious and two small escort carriers, together with destroyers. On the first day one escort carrier was torpedoed and badly damaged, and had to return to Scapa escorted by the second small carrier. Some time later a destroyer was torpedoed and sank, with few survivors. The operation lasted for seven days with the ship at Action Stations most of the time. At one point Indefat seemed to be under serious attack by Uboats, with the ship taking evasive action and shaken by exploding depth charges from nearby destroyers, while it was reported that one torpedo passed under Indefat. GOODWOOD was successful as Tirpitz was hit several times and had to be moved to the port of Tromso for repairs, where she was later sunk by the RAF with their 10 ton Tallboy bombs. Had she remained in the narrow fiord in the lee of the mountains protected by smokescreens they might never have hit her.</p> <p>Above the Arctic Circle the sun at this time only went below the horizon for a short time, which meant that our ships could be continually kept under observation by German aircraft and Uboats. There were however some fascinating panoramas of sea and sky, and I remember that one evening the ship had to steam into the wind straight for the coast and the spectacular black rugged mountains of Norway loomed up ahead. I vowed that one day I would revisit the area, and so I did with Joan during our Norwegian cruise of 1987.</p> <p>Our base was Scapa Flow where we returned every few days. Occasionally we went ashore and the main treat was a visit to the NAAFI canteen which provided a large dish of bacon and baked beans. Otherwise we spent time in the wardroom eating, drinking and playing shove ha&#8217;penny or bar skittles. One day we played hockey against a team of large and ruthless Wrens, who beat us using their sticks with wild abandon.</p> <p>In July more engineer officers joined the ship and I knew that one of them would occupy the vacant berth in my double cabin. I anxiously watched them come aboard and liked the look of Brian, and was very glad when he was allocated to my cabin. Then began a friendship which has lasted all our lives.</p> <p><strong><u>October &#8211; November 1944</u></strong>         We returned to Clydebank in October and made preparations for going to the Far East. Then we steamed down to Portsmouth and went into dry dock for maintenance and cleaning the ship&#8217;s bottom. After this we were ready for sailing but before doing so on 16th November the King and the Royal Family came aboard to wish us Good Luck. We were all mustered in our divisions on the flight deck, the King inspected us and then asked for a cup of tea. This caused a flap as all the cooks and stewards were mustered, and it took the duty officer nearly half an hour to find some tea and make it!</p> <p><strong><u>December 1944</u></strong>         After leaving Portsmouth we sailed to Ceylon, passing through Gibraltar, the Mediterranean, the Suez Canal, and then across the Indian Ocean arriving at Colombo on 10th December. We stopped off Algiers where our Mess Secretary went ashore and triumphantly came back with a large load of Algerian wine, which turned out to be the most awful plonk! We had Admiral Vian, the fighting Admiral, on board and at Colombo he demanded to be ferried ashore immediately in his Admiral&#8217;s Barge. This motor boat arrived on board at Portsmouth just before we sailed and was stowed in one of the hangars, where the engine could not be tested. I was in charge of boats and I insisted that the boat should have a trial run before an official trip. The Admiral was furious and came storming down the Hight deck demanding an explanation, so I stood to attention quaking in my shoes and gave one. He looked me up and down and said &#8220;Right, I will give you ten minutes&#8221;. Luckily all went well. Strange how one remembers these things!</p> <p>During the remainder of the month we spent time at Colombo or Trincomalee storing ship, or at sea exercising with other ships of the Fleet. Trincomalee was a beautiful harbour, and I remember Brian and I were thrilled to bring back a pineapple (which we hadn&#8217;t seen for years) to our cabin, but when with due ceremony we slit it open it was full of insects!</p> <p><strong><u>January 1945</u></strong>         On New Year&#8217;s Day we sailed in company with three other carriers, the battleship King George V, and several cruisers and destroyers for air strikes against the Japanese oil refineries at Palembang in Sumatra. The first strike took place on 4 January and about 100 aircraft took part plus 40 Seafires which provided fighter cover. The refineries were damaged but after returning to Trincomalee it w as decided that further strikes would be carried out and they took place on 24 and 29 January. These were major strikes carried out by 144 aircraft for the first and 128 for the second, plus the usual fighter cover. This time the Japanese were well prepared and on several occasions the Fleet came under attack by enemy aircraft. These were fought off by our guns and aircraft, two being shot down close to Indefat. There were many air battles and we lost 41 aircraft together with many of the aircrews. This included several aircraft that were damaged by enemy action and then crashed on deck landing. The worst event was the fate of nine aircrew survivors who had to force land in Sumatra, were made prisoners, taken to Singapore and then later beheaded. The strikes were successful as the refineries produced some 50 of Japanese oil requirements and they were reduced to a standstill, only increasing back to one third capacity by the end of March. After this we steamed south for Australia and crossed the line (the Equator) with King Neptune and his cohorts &#8220;coming aboard&#8221; on 1st February. I was duly ducked and scrubbed m a makeshift swimming pool.</p> <p><strong><u>February 1945</u></strong>         We called in at Fremantle and six days later arrived in Sydney and moored at Wooloomooloo near the Harbour Bridge. The Australians were very hospitable and Brian, Colin and I were &#8220;adopted&#8221; by the Murray-Jones family with two daughters, Judy and Annabel. They would invite us home for a meal or arrange some tennis or swimming, not that there was much time as we were busy with maintenance and storing for the Pacific. Towards the end of the month we steamed north with the British Pacific Fleet under Admiral Rawlings.</p> <p><strong><u>March 1945</u></strong>         After 11 days at sea we arrived at the island of Manus and then went on to Ulithi, another island. This had an enormous harbour and was full of American ships, a total of about 1,400 preparing for the invasion of Japan. Our Fleet then became Task Force 57 operating with the American 3rd Fleet under Admiral Spruance, and consisted of three other Fleet carriers, eleven destroyers and a number of support ships including sloops, frigates, minesweepers, oil tankers and hospital ships. Sailing from Ulithi our first strike took place on 26th March against some of the Japanese islands south of Okinawa where it was estimated that the Japanese had 10,000 aircraft, of which about 4,000 were suicide bombers called Kamikazes.</p> <p>Then began a series of strike days, each being a long day&#8217;s activity for the Fleet, particularly for the ships&#8217; companies of the aircraft carriers. We would go to Action Stations at 0600 and return to Defence Stations at 2000, and periodically a &#8220;Flash Red&#8221; warning would be broadcast when enemy aircraft approached. Several air battles took place and, throughout the day, the Fleet wheeled and turned in and out of the wind for the carriers to land on and fly off strikes and fighter escorts. When the last aircraft landed on at dusk the air engineering department worked all night to repair, re-arm, and refuel aircraft ready for the next day.</p> <p><strong><u>April 1945</u></strong>         On the morning of 1 April we were hit by a Kamikaze which exploded into the flight deck and bridge structure. Because the flight deck had 3&#8243; armour plate the damage was not catastrophic but fourteen of the crew, including the ship&#8217;s doctor, were killed and there was a lot of damage to the flight deck barrier gear and bridge communications. I was Damage Control Officer for the area and my team had to remove the casualties and start repairing the damage. I remember the whole area was flooded with hot steam, as the steam-to-ships siren pipework was broken, until I managed to telephone Y boiler room to shut off the master valve.</p> <p>Peter Sandison&#8217;s team did a good job to repair arrester wires and barriers, and the ship was flying off aircraft an hour later, much to the amazement of the American ships and Admirals. The American carriers with light steel decks were very vulnerable and many of their carriers were sunk or badly damaged due to Kamikazes. On 6 and 7 April the Japanese made massive attacks on allied ships with most of them concentrated on American ships to the north of our Fleet. These attacks were made by 600 aircraft, including 355 Kamikazes, and some 380 were shot down but six American ships were sunk and twenty-one damaged. At this time the giant Japanese battleship Yamato came out on a suicide mission and was sunk by American torpedo bombers with a loss of 2,100 men.</p> <p>Operations continued until the last week of April when our Fleet returned to Leyte island for refitting and oiling, having been at sea continuously for 32 days. By this time sixty support ships had arrived to provide repair and maintenance facilities. During the month I was promoted to Temporary Lieutenant (E) RN and wore my second stripe.</p> <p><strong><u>May 1945</u></strong>         On 1st May the Fleet including the carriers Indefatigable, Implacable. Indomitable, Formidable and Victorious left Leyte to resume operations against the Japanese shipping and shore installations, with Action Stations every day except for the odd day when we retired for refuelling by waiting tankers. British ships were essentially designed for Atlantic operations, and consequently there was very little air conditioning to deal with the hot climate of the Pacific, Some of the machinery spaces reached temperatures of 140<sup>0</sup> F and almost every day one&#8217;s boiler suit could be twice soaked with perspiration. After a few weeks one would suffer from prickly heat and would be painted with purple potassium permanganate, so looking like an Ancient Briton! Sleeping at night on the quarter-deck was the most comfortable time. Food was almost all dehydrated or tinned and a staple of the diet of dehydrated potato served in a variety of ways &#8211; mashed, cubed, boiled, roast or fried. There were also plenty of tins of egg powder and powdered milk!</p> <p>On 4 May Formidable was hit by a Kamikaze which caused considerable damage and fires on the flight deck but the ship remained operational. Indomitable was nearly hit by another Kamikaze which was shot down and crashed some thirty feet off the starboard bow. A few days later Formidable was again hit and fires were started in the hangar, and nine aircraft were destroyed. All through this period the enemy pressed home their attacks with great skill and determination, making good use of cloud cover, decoys and variations of height. All five carriers were hit at least once by Kamikazes, but nevertheless our aircraft flew some 2500 sorties, dropped over 500 tons of bombs and destroyed about 60 aircraft, at a loss of 98 aircraft.</p> <p><strong><u>June 1945</u></strong>         At the beginning of June we returned to Sydney for vital boiler maintenance, aircraft repairs and other general refitting. This was a welcome relief after 100 days on the ship at sea and again the Murray Jones were very hospitable, so we enjoyed some tennis and swimming off Bondi Beach. Towards the end of June the Fleet sailed north again and resumed operations in co-operation with the American Third Fleet.</p> <p><strong><u>July &#8211; August 1945</u></strong>         We carried out strikes against the Japanese mainland for the first time, including airfields and installations in the Tokyo area. The routine developed of 4 or 5 days at Action Stations, then a day&#8217;s withdrawal for refuelling, and then back again for more strikes. It was a time of Action Stations, watch-keeping, eating and sleeping in a noisy, hot and tiring atmosphere, with some excitement when enemy aircraft appeared. The Flight Deck was again busy from dawn to dusk, sending off bombers and also fighters to protect the Fleet. Unfortunately many did not return, and several had accidents when landing back on. At this stage the whole of the Japanese mainland from north to south was under attack by allied ships, with the Americans concentrating on destroying the remnants of the Japanese navy. The British aircraft bombed industrial targets including shipping, oil storage tanks, railways and factories, and on two occasions the battleship King George V carried out extensive bombardment with her heavy guns.</p> <p>On 4th August all ships were ordered to withdraw some 300 miles from Japan, and on the 6th the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and then the second on Nagasaki. Further strikes continued until the Japanese finally surrendered on 15th August. The Fleet remained at sea but on the 25th we were hit by a typhoon. The waves were awesome, I remember standing on the flight deck which was 70 ft above normal sea level, and watching waves much higher than this coming towards me. The ship was rolling 35° from one side to the other, but we survived. Three American destroyers capsized, and we saw one American carrier with a large part of its flight deck hanging over its bows, as though it had received a punch on the nose!</p> <p><strong><u>September 1945</u></strong>         The Japanese Surrender was signed on the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on 2nd September, much to our relief. We remained at sea, and with the American Fleet took part in an enormous &#8220;parade&#8221; of ships outside Tokyo Bay. Then we spent three days in the Bay, while some of our crew went ashore to find and collect prisoners of war and transport them to hospital ships. The famous Mount Fuji is usually covered in cloud but early one morning the tannoy broadcast that it was visible, and I remember a marvellous view of its snow-capped peak.</p> <p>After this we steamed back to Sydney arriving towards the end of the month, ready for a respite after 73 days of sea time. It was time to reflect on past events, the worst being during July and August when the Fleet lost over 140 aircraft from all causes, by enemy action or deck landings. Since then there has been a lot of discussion about dropping the atomic bombs and their consequences, but to my mind the following reasons justified the decision.</p> <ol> <li>The Americans estimated that there would be around a half-million Allied casualties if the invasion of Japan had taken place later in the year. This did not happen.</li> <li>About 40,000 British and Allied prisoners of war were kept by the Japanese in horrendous conditions and most would probably not have survived another winter. They were rescued.</li> <li>The Japanese had some five thousand aircraft and pilots trained as Kamikazes to be used against an invasion fleet, and we would have been in the forefront of this.</li> </ol> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">October &#8211; December 1945</span></strong>         Indefat remained in Sydney and the crew were allowed a lot of shore leave. The Murray-Jones thoughtfully provided a flat where many of us could stay, including Brian, Colin, Peter Fanghanel and others. One highlight was when all the latter including me made up a party to go ski-ing for a week at Mount Kosciusco. We arrived at the snowline and were then told that the chalet was 12 miles away and could only be reached on skis. Some of us, including me, had not skied before but we were told &#8220;Oh, that&#8217;s OK, today is Tuesday, and there is a tractor going up on Thursday which could pick you up if you are stuck&#8221;!</p> <p>This was a time of hard work and playas supplies were exhausted, the engines needed refitting, the ship needed cleaning and the typhoon had damaged part of the hull so the ship had to go into dry dock. Some of us were seconded to the dockyard to help out with various jobs and I enjoyed the use of a 500cc motor-bike.</p> <p>We managed another five days on a sheep farm, again with Brian and Colin. The farm was enormous and the family relied on horses to get around. On the first day we were each provided with a horse, but I viewed this with trepidation. So evidently did the horse, as after 15 minutes he turned round and trotted home, and there was nothing I or anyone else could do to stop him! I decided that I would stick to something with a brake and throttle.</p> <p><strong><u>January &#8211; March 1946</u></strong>         On 20th January we left Sydney for the journey home. Three days later we arrived at Melbourne where we had a tremendous welcome, with a parade led by the Royal Marines hand marching through the streets to the City Hall where the Governor took the salute accompanied by Admiral Vian. We stayed a week and were well entertained, then steamed across the Australian Bight which was unpleasantly rough to call in at Fremantle for a few hours before setting off for Capetown.</p> <p>We arrived at Capetown after 17 days at sea. Again we were well looked after with a reception at the Governor&#8217;s Residence and an expedition to Table Mountain. This was the highlight of the visit, we took the cable car to the top with marvellous views all round and then came all the way down on foot. On 24th February we left Capetown, arriving at Gibraltar on 11 th March. On the way we passed close to St. Helena and Ascension Island. The Duty Officer went ashore and paid his respects to the Governor, who presented him with a live turtle to make soup! The ship&#8217;s butcher did not think much of this so when we left the turtle was returned to the sea, and was last seen swimming happily to the shore.</p> <p>This part of the trip was pleasant and not too hot, every day there were games of deck hockey on the flight deck using a rope grommet instead of a ball. At Gibraltar we stayed for one day and Peter Fanghanel was the only one of our group who managed to go ashore, he came back with a large case of Tio Pepe sherry.</p> <p>Finally we arrived at Portsmouth on 16th March and berthed inside the harbour, with crowds lining the Southsea promenade and cheering as we went in. We engineers saw little of this, hut we looked forward to a pint at the St. Enoch&#8217;s Hotel and then some leave. I think I had about ten days at Westcliff with Mother and Brenda, it was good to see them again after nearly 2½years.</p> <p><strong><u>April &#8211; October 1946</u></strong>         The ship sailed again on 25th April with 130 &#8220;Bush Brides&#8221;, who were brides of Australian servicemen and were going to join their husbands to live in Australia. The voyage again was through the Mediterranean and then a brief stay at Aden. Brian, Colin and I went ashore and we asked some joker the way to the local Club for a drink. &#8220;Oh&#8221; he said &#8220;lt&#8217;s that white building up on the hill&#8221;. So we trudged up the hill, knocked on the front door which was opened by a smart servant who asked what we wanted. We said we would like a drink, to which he replied that this was the Consul&#8217;s Residence. Anyway, the Consul was very decent, gave us more than one drink and we went happily back to the ship.</p> <p>We arrived back in Sydney on 25th May and left again on the 9th June with over 1,000 service personnel due to be demobilised, including some RAF. We also carried 65 tons of food for Britain and about 18,000 gift parcels of food. From Fremantle the engines worked at full power and lndefat made a record-breaking non-stop trip of 21 days to Portsmouth. Then on 29th July we sailed again to Colombo and repatriated another large number of service personnel. The highlight I remember was a visit to Kandy and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, where we were guided by Buddhist priests in their saffron yellow robes.</p> <p>The last major event was a parade by the ship&#8217;s company on 19th September through Holborn in London, the borough that had &#8220;adopted&#8221; us during the war. As one of the officers with the longest-serving time in Indefat I was placed in the front rank, and there is a photo in our album. After the march we were inspected by the Mayor and then had a luncheon in the Town Hall, where our Battle Ensign flown by Indefat during Action Stations was presented to be hung in the Council Chamber. The demobilisation process was slow, but I finally left the ship and the Navy on 1st October 1946, after a wardroom party the night before! I well remember going down the gangway, walking through Portsmouth Dockyard and then out through the Main Gate, ready to face a different kind of life and world.</p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17596/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17596/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=jonathanlewis.wordpress.com&#038;blog=491988&#038;post=17596&#038;subd=jonathanlewis&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> Jonathan Lewis http://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/?p=17596 Wed Oct 11 2017 08:30:30 GMT-0400 (EDT) ODC Appreciation Day 2017 : It’s a Wrap (#ThanksODC) http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheOracleBaseBlog/~3/9r2aqBeKx58/ <p>Yesterday was the Oracle Developer Community <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/09/25/odc-appreciation-day-2017-thanksodc/">ODC Appreciation Day (#ThanksODC)</a>.<br /> <a href="https://developer.oracle.com/"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-7535" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/oracle-developer-community.png" alt="" width="757" height="297" /></a></p> <p>Thanks to everyone who contributed.

These come in handy when your database connection is busy doing OTHER things.</p> <p>The &#8216;problem&#8217; with Ctrl+Shift+N is that it only works if you&#8217;re on the main/original worksheet. You CAN&#8217;T open a new unshared worksheet from an existing unshared worksheet. To keep these connections &#8216;private&#8217; or exclusive to the worksheet, we do &#8216;special things&#8217; in the code. And as a result, you can&#8217;t spawn one unshared worksheet from another one.</p> <h3>But</h3> <p>But, you can do THIS.</p> <p>Enable in preferences:<br /> <div id="attachment_6359" style="width: 609px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="https://www.thatjeffsmith.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/unshared10.png"><img src="https://www.thatjeffsmith.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/unshared10.png" alt="" width="599" height="436" class="size-full wp-image-6359" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">This applies to SUBSEQUENT worksheets opened on a database, not the first one.</p></div> <p>So when you connect, you get a worksheet by default.

So many to talk about. And almost every day another favorite of the month. Sliding time windows. The Oracle Developer Community – well, that is us. All developers working with Oracle technology, sharing experiences and ideas, helping each other with inspiration and solutions to challenges, making each other and ourselves better. Sharing fun and frustration, creativity and best practices, desires and results. Powered by OTN now kown as ODC. Where we can download virtually any software Oracle has to offer. And find resources – from articles and forum answers to documentation and sample code. This article is part of the community effort to show appreciation – to the community and to the Orace Developer Community (organization).</p> <p>For fun, you could take a look at how the OTN site started – sometime in 2000 – using the WayBack machine: <a title="https://web.archive.org/web/20000511100612/http://otn.oracle.com:80/" href="https://web.archive.org/web/20000511100612/http://otn.oracle.com:80/">https://web.archive.org/web/20000511100612/http://otn.oracle.com:80/</a>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-80.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-79.png?resize=702%2C406&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p></p> <p>And the WayBack machine is just one of many examples of timelines – presentation of data organized by date.<a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-81.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-80.png?resize=702%2C278&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> We all know how pictures say more than many words. And how tables of data are frequently to much less accessible to users than to the point visualizations. For some reason, data associated with moments in time have always had special interest for me.

and understanding that there is a distinct formula to success.  If you have vision, (i.e an ability to see the big picture) you should follow your path and if you don&#8217;t have this vision, search out and follow those that do.</p> <h3>Lessons Learned</h3> <p>There&#8217;s a significant number of lessons for anyone to learn from, but this book did offer me a distinct value as I&#8217;ve always felt I had a difficult time comprehending the C-level or entrepreneur mindset.  I appreciated all the data and analogies that Jed uses in the book.  It was bit intimidating at first, being told there&#8217;s no field that&#8217;s too complicated for him to master, but then quickly felt comfortable once he assured the reader to believe the same about themselves when using the method of learning he proceeds to share in his book.</p> <p>Jed happened to use the example of competitive data as an example and this resonated with me.  Although I had a deep understanding of technology, until I joined Delphix, I hadn&#8217;t really done competitive analysis.  After taking my time to understand the technology at what might appear to be a very slow and deep pace, I&#8217;m now able to quickly review any company that someone deems a potential competitor and know within minutes if they are or if they will be competition in the near future.  This is a process Jed refers to as Learning Slow and Fast, requiring someone to take considerable time building an educational foundation for a topic which then offers the ability to accelerate their learning post the foundation build.  As we all know how fast technology changes, you have to appreciate this opportunity to learn a method that could serve you in learning new topics in the future.</p> <h3>Yesterday and Tomorrow</h3> <p>When it comes to the history and the future of technology, Chapter 5 Jed discusses the &#8220;mad scientist&#8221; of technology, Elon Musk.  Elon demonstrates some interesting, albeit modern personality similarities to the inventor, physicist and sometimes futurist his car company is named after, Nikola Tesla.</p> <p><a href="http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/n-tesla/" rel="attachment wp-att-7313"><img class="alignnone wp-image-7313" src="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N.Tesla_.jpg?resize=168%2C220" alt="" srcset="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N.Tesla_.jpg?resize=784%2C1024 784w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N.Tesla_.jpg?resize=230%2C300 230w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N.Tesla_.jpg?resize=768%2C1004 768w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/N.Tesla_.jpg?w=1024 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 168px) 100vw, 168px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a><a href="http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits/" rel="attachment wp-att-7314"><img class="alignnone wp-image-7314" src="https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits.jpg?resize=393%2C221" alt="" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits.jpg?resize=1024%2C576 1024w, https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits.jpg?resize=300%2C169 300w, https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits.jpg?resize=768%2C432 768w, https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3046916-poster-p-2-elon-musks-missing-leadership-traits.jpg?w=1280 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 393px) 100vw, 393px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>Although Elon Musk didn&#8217;t name the Tesla company, you can&#8217;t help but notice the similar thirst for knowledge, larger than life ideas and accomplishments that surrounds and drives both individuals- one historical, the other current.  Robert Lomas, author of &#8220;The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century&#8221;, even referred to Nikola Tesla having a &#8220;reputation of an archetypal mad scientist in American popular culture.&#8221; which is similar to Jed&#8217;s own reference to Musk.</p> <p>We realize that those with this type of vision, (i.e. the <strong>mad scientists)</strong> are required for us to move past some of the legacy and nostalgia in technology, science, mathematics and engineering that are holding us from moving to the next phase of advancement.</p> <h3>How Far We&#8217;ve Come</h3> <p>Jed spends chapters carefully disseminating the Silicon Valley history, magic, leadership and those that have impressed him and why.  Learning about where he came from, what caused him to create companies like Delphix, helped me understand the company I work for and love the job I do for Delphix even more.</p> <p>In the process, I somehow managed to learn more about wine tasting, all the while understanding the C-level/entrepreneur instead of just rushing off to the to some new geeky task&#8230;.:)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div><br><br><img src="https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/ico-tag.png?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"> Tags:&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="http://dbakevlar.com/tag/book/" rel="tag">book</a>, <a href="http://dbakevlar.com/tag/delphix/" rel="tag">Delphix</a>, <a href="http://dbakevlar.com/tag/jedidiah-yeuh/" rel="tag">Jedidiah Yeuh</a><br><br><div style="width:100%"><table align="left" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" bgcolor="#f1f1f1" border="0px;"> <tbody> <tr bgcolor="#ffffff"><td align="center" width="17%" valign="top"> <span class="sb_title">Del.icio.us</span><br> <a href="http://del.icio.us/post?url=http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/&title=Disrupt or Die- Learning From History"> <img src="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/delicious.gif?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"> </a> </td><td align="center" width="17%" valign="top"> <span class="sb_title">Facebook</span><br> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/facebook_icon.png?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> </td><td align="center" width="17%" valign="top"> <span class="sb_title">TweetThis</span><br> <a href="http://twitthis.com/twit?url=http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/&title=Disrupt or Die- Learning From History"><img src="https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/tweet.png?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> </td><td align="center" width="17%" valign="top"> <span class="sb_title">Digg</span><br> <a href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url=http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/&title=Disrupt or Die- Learning From History"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/digg.png?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> </td><td align="center" width="17%" valign="top"> <span class="sb_title">StumbleUpon</span><br> <a href="http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit?url=http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/disrupt-die-learning-history/&title=Disrupt or Die- Learning From History"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/plugins/readers-from-rss-2-blog/wpsmartapps-lic/images/stumble.gif?w=656" border="0" align="absmiddle" data-recalc-dims="1"></a> </td></tr> </tbody></table></div><br><div style="clear:both"></div><div style="background:#EEEEEE;

posts for Oracle Development Community Appreciation Day, (#ThanksODC) and the historical hashtag for reference, #ThanksOTN are impressive, but I waited a day on mine so I could continue the support for the Oracle Women in Technology, (and @ORAWit).  Here are the ThankODC blog posts from the great women of the Oracle Community!</p> <p>I&#8217;m going to start with Flora B, (@floo_bar) in recognizing her <a href="https://floobar0.wordpress.com/2017/10/10/odc-appreciation-day-em-cli/">first blog post</a>!!  I&#8217;m even more thrilled its on the Enterprise Manager CLI-  a topic near and dear to my heart!</p> <p>She&#8217;s off to a great start and I look forward to seeing more from her in the upcoming years!</p> <p>Sabine, (@oraesque) has been creating some awesome content and wasn&#8217;t to be outdone today when she <a href="http://www.its-people.de/blog/details/ODC-Appreciation-Day-Why-I-like-ANSI-Joins.html">posted</a> on why she liked ansi-joins.</p> <p>Another newer contributor to the Oracle community is Mandy Sandhu, (@Mandysandhu14) She wrote a <a href="https://mandysandhu.com/2017/10/10/odc-appreciation-day-moving-datafiles-online/">great post</a> on a topic that all DBAs run into sooner or later, moving datafiles.</p> <p>Opal, (@opal_EPM) made sure to get her <a href="https://womaninepm.com/2017/10/10/odc-appreciation-day-oac-cube-designer/">post</a> out on OAC Cube Designer and is one of the first editions post publish!</p> <p>Next is Heli, (@HeliFromFinland) and <a href="https://helifromfinland.blog/2017/10/10/odc-appreciation-day-json-data-guide/">her post </a>on the JSON Data Guide.</p> <p>Debra, (@debralilley) made sure to get her <a href="http://debrasoracle.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/odc-appreciation-day-visual-builder.html">post</a> out, too, relinking to other posts she&#8217;s done with a focus on the Visual Cloud Builder.</p> <p>And although I didn&#8217;t see anything from Paula Pullas, (<a href="https://twitter.com/techbyppullas">@Techbyppullas</a>) she is also following the full #ThanksODC feed on Twitter, so she&#8217;s a good one to follow for the full list of everyone&#8217;s posts.</p> <p>I will search when possible to update this post for any additional posts as the day progresses.  Go <a

http://dirknachbar.blogspot.com/2017/10/odc-appreciation-day-oracle-github.html It's time again for the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ThanksODC?src=hash" target="_blank">ODC Appreciation Day</a> (formerly known as OTN Appreciation Day) driven by <a href="https://twitter.com/oraclebase" target="_blank">Tim Hall</a>.<br /><br />My personal favorite this year are the Oracle GitHub Docker Images and the Oracle Container Registry.<br /><br />The Oracle GitHub Docker Images (<a href="https://github.com/oracle/docker-images" target="_blank">https://github.com/oracle/docker-images</a>) are the "Community Version" provided by Oracle. So in order to use them you will need to download upfront the required Installation Software from OTN or Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.<br /><br />Under the <a href="https://github.com/oracle/docker-images" target="_blank">Oracle GitHub Docker Images</a> you can find a wide range of Ready-To-Use Docker Images for nearly all the main products of Oracle:<br /><br /><ul><li>Oracle WebLogic</li><li>Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure</li><li>Oracle Java</li><li>Oracle Database</li><li>Oracle SOA Suite</li><li>and so on</li></ul><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-W-2LFp6S0hE/Wdx99-evWLI/AAAAAAAAAv4/l5oY4GUwraAKmYaSz3TWiMbTNh6CT0o4QCLcBGAs/s1600/01_GitHub.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1141" data-original-width="1600" height="452" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-W-2LFp6S0hE/Wdx99-evWLI/AAAAAAAAAv4/l5oY4GUwraAKmYaSz3TWiMbTNh6CT0o4QCLcBGAs/s640/01_GitHub.png" width="640" /></a></div><div><br /></div><div>The great thing about is, that you can easily start by using simple architectures, e.g. a single Oracle WebLogic Domain and learn how to build Docker Images.</div><div>In the next step you can extend the provided Dockerfiles with your own stuff/needs or use more complex architectures like Oracle WebLogic Cluster.</div><div><br /></div><div>The Oracle GitHub Docker Images are quite frequently updated, corrected and extended by several Oracle people, e.g. <a href="https://twitter.com/BrunoBorges" target="_blank">Bruno Borges</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/GeraldVenzl" target="_blank">Gerald Venzl</a>.

The OpenWorld announcements about the <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-autonomous-database-and-the-death-of-the-dba/">Autonomous Database</a> service are not the first thing Oracle has done to ease automation of repetitive tasks. In fact, Oracle has quite a long history of making automation of installation and configuration easy.</p> <p>I&#8217;m not sure what version introduced silent installations of the database, but I first wrote about them when using Oracle 9i (<a href="/articles/misc/oui-silent-installations">here</a>), with the article changing a lot over the years. In addition to making installations faster, more repeatable and less error prone, they are also important these days if you are using a cloud provider for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), since using X emulation to perform tasks can be super-slow. Over the years I&#8217;ve also written about silent installations of WebLogic, Oracle Forms, ODI and OBIEE to name but a few.</p> <p>In addition to installations, Oracle has made silent configuration possible too. Running the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) in silent mode is pretty simple (<a href="/articles/misc/database-configuration-assistant-dbca-silent-mode">here</a>). WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) is a not always easy, but it is a really powerful way to script build processes for WebLogic servers (<a href="/articles/web/articles-web#wlst-examples">here</a>). If you are using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, you will find an API for pretty much everything, allowing you to script using EMCLI (<a href="/articles/12c/installing-emcli-for-em-cloud-control-12c">here</a>).</p> <p>You can find a number of articles I&#8217;ve written related to silent installation and configuration using the links above, or grouped under <a href="/articles/misc/articles-misc#silent-installation-configuration">this section</a> of my website.</p> <p>A good knowledge of this subject is important if you want to start checking out Docker, because you will be doing silent builds and configuration for everything.</p> <p>When you are learning something new it is nice to use GUI screens, as they often feel a little simpler at first and sometimes give you a little more context about what you are doing. Once you&#8217;ve covered the basics you should really switch to scripting, as it will make you more efficient. When I first started to manage WebLogic servers I resisted the switch to using WLST for quite some time. It seemed a little complicated and I was in denial until <a href="https://twitter.com/lonnekedikmans?lang=en">Lonneke Dikmans</a> persuaded me to try it. Once I got into it I never looked back! <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>To summarise the advantages of scripting your installations and configuration, they are:</p> <ul> <li>Faster.</li> <li>More reliable.</li> <li>More repeatable.</li> <li>Work fine on the cloud and in Docker.</li> <li>Easily maintainable and can be version controlled.</li> </ul> <p>If you&#8217;re not using this stuff already, do yourself a favour and give it a go. You will thank yourself!</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <p><a href="https://developer.oracle.com/"><img class="alignnone wp-image-7535 size-full" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/oracle-developer-community.png" alt="" width="757" height="297" /></a></p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/10/odc-appreciation-day-silent-installation-and-configuration-automation-thanksodc/">ODC Appreciation Day : Silent Installation and Configuration (Automation) : #ThanksODC</a> was first posted on October 10, 2017 at 7:37 am.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

http://oracle-help.com/oracle-12c/monitor-goldengate-oem-12c-cloud-control/ <p>This article is about the steps which we use to monitor goldengate from OCM 12c Cloud Control.</p> <p>We can monitor goldengate processes like a manager, extract and replicate and also the lag from OEM 12c cloud control.</p> <p>We need three main things.</p> <p>1. Goldengate plugin to be deployed on the management server</p> <p>2. Goldengate plugin to be deployed on the management agent server(which goldengate is running)</p> <p>3. JAGENT software to be installed on server( where goldengate is running)</p> <p>In this article, we will explain step by step, how to implement this.</p> <p><strong>1. DEPLOY GOLDENGATE PLUGIN ON MANAGEMENT SERVER.</strong></p> <p><em>Go to EXTENSIBILITY -&gt; PLUG IN -&gt; DEPLOY ON – &gt; MANAGEMENT SERVER</em></p> <p><a

Now have look at steps which use to install Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is viewed as a single entity, It has below components.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Oracle Management Agent: &lt;/strong&gt;Oracle Management Agent (Management Agent) component is deployed on each monitored host. It is supervised for monitoring all of the targets running on those hosts, communicating that information to the middle-tier Oracle Management Service, and managing and maintaining the hosts and its targets.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Oracle Management Service: &lt;/strong&gt;Oracle Management Service is a Web-based application that is connected with the Management Agents and the Management Plug-ins to discover targets, monitor and manage those targets, and dump the collected information in a repository. Oracle Management Service also provides the user interface for Enterprise Manager Cloud Control.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Oracle Management Repository: &lt;/strong&gt;The Oracle Management Repository is a storage location where all of the information collected by the Management Agent is stored. It is basically a database, Where Oracle Management Service uploads the monitoring data it receives from the Management Agents to the Management Repository.Oracle Management service retrieves the data from this repository database and displays it in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control console.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Management Console:&lt;/strong&gt;The OEM Cloud Control console is the web-based user interface for Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. With the help of the console, we can monitor and administer all the systems and services like databases, hosts, middleware application servers, listeners, and so on, are easily managed from one central location.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Below is the simple Architectural Diagram:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ARCH_CLOUD_1.jpg&quot;&gt;&lt;img class=&quot;size-medium wp-image-1493 aligncenter&quot; src=&quot;http://oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ARCH_CLOUD_1-271x300.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;&quot; width=&quot;271&quot; height=&quot;300&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Required Softwares:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ol&gt; &lt;li&gt;Oracle Database 12.1.0.2&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud control 12c&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Database Template for OEM&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ol&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Installing OEM 12C cloud Control:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Before Installing OEM cloud control, We need to do below 2 steps.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Installing Oracle Database software 12c&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Install the oracle database software 12.1.0.2 on the server, where the cloud will be installed. This &lt;strong&gt;ORACLE_HOME&lt;/strong&gt; will be used for creating the repository database.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt; ORACLE_HOME : /oracle/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1 &lt;/pre&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Creating Repository database&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Now create a repository database by using &lt;strong&gt;dbca&lt;/strong&gt; utility. Make sure to use template while creating db. Once database is created, add below entry in the &lt;strong&gt;oratab&lt;/strong&gt;.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;pre&gt; BSSCCNTL:/oracle/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1:N &lt;/pre&gt; &lt;p&gt;Now &lt;strong&gt;Unzip&lt;/strong&gt;

Agent needs to be deployed on the new host</p> <p>2. Same version of ORACLE RDBMS binary need to be installed on target( same as that of source)</p> <p><strong>EXAMPLE:</strong></p> <p><strong>1.

Yet SaaS is becoming increasingly more important. The number of SaaS applications or at least the number of functions that standard available applications can perform is growing rapidly. The availability to any organization of SaaS functions that will support them with a large portion of their business process is growing. The main challenge of corporate IT departments is going to shift from creating IT facilities to support the business [processes]to enabling SaaS applications to provide that support – by mutually tying together these applications through integration and mash up as well as embedding in authentication, authorization, data warehousing, scanning, printing, enterprise content management and other enterprise IT facilities. </p> <p>Business Applications not only support many more niche functions and allow fine tuning to an organization’s ways of doing things, they also become much smarter and proactive. Smart Business Applications – apply machine learning to help humans focus on the tasks that require human attention and handle automatically the cases that fall within boundaries of normal action.</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-56.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto;

The Analytics Cloud comes with recommendations (calls to action) to cleanse (or “heal”) and enrich the data. Among the potential actions are correcting zip-codes, extracting business entities from images, complete names and enrich by joining to predefined data sets such as players, locations, team names etc.</p> <p>The intial presentation of data is in itself a rich exploration of the data. Analytics Cloud has already identified a large number of attributes, has analyzed the data and presents various aggregations. (This has clear undertones of Endeca) At this point, we can work on the data, to make it better – cleaner, richer and better suited for presentations, conclusions and model building.</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-43.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto;

max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>For me the story of this year&#8217;s OpenWorld was the emphasis on humans doing stuff where humans add value, rather than doing boring crap that can be automated.</p> <p>The obvious thing people will jump on is the <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-autonomous-database-and-the-death-of-the-dba/">Autonomous Database</a> announcement, which I&#8217;ve written about already, but the story follows through many aspects of the conference.</p> <p>The interest in chatbots is quite high at the moment. From a work perspective, it&#8217;s not about replacing every application you have with a voice or messenger interaction. It&#8217;s about finding use-cases where they work well. Having a chatbot that deals with trivial interactions frees up humans to deal with more important stuff. Over the last few years products using natural language processing for text and voice interaction have come a long way. Many people have devices in their pocket that do this pretty well (Siri on Apple and &#8220;OK Google&#8221; on Android). Products like Amazon Echo and Google Home have made voice interaction seem normal. As they become more normal, people will expect these services from you.</p> <p>In the apps world there is an emphasis on making things simpler by making the apps more intelligent. Rather than expecting the user to fill in every bit of information, you default the most likely responses based on the information you have about that user. This could be a simple as pre-filling an address, or as complicated as using machine learning to make educated guesses at what they want. It&#8217;s all about making basic interactions as efficient as possible so user time can be spent more productively.</p> <p>Cloud providers are a great example of software defined data centers. If you choose to move to the cloud, the cloud provider has done the heavy lifting for you. If you want to continue to work on-prem, you need to learn the lessons of the cloud providers and remove humans as much as possible from the process of deploying and managing virtual machines, containers, databases, app servers, networking, load balancers and firewalls etc. Those people can then focus on more architectural, development and performance-related issues.</p> <p>We speak about the benefits of agile and DevOps all the time, but many people get caught up in the tooling and automation associated with this. Cloud providers take a lot of that burden off us, and tools like Oracle Developer Cloud Service, available for free if you have some other Oracle cloud services, save you from having to worry about some of that development tooling. Other cloud providers offer similar services.</p> <p>The list goes on&#8230;</p> <p>None of these messages are new, but it has taken me some time to adjust to some of them. Sometimes you have to have a personal use-case to really appreciate things. My experience of cloud services, voice devices, Docker and seeing data center automation using VMware Software Development Data Center have made me more responsive than I think I was before.</p> <p>People often have a fear of change, and speaking about automation makes people think job cuts, but as I mentioned before this is about stopping people worrying about boring stuff and getting them to focus on where they add value. I don&#8217;t see this reducing the head-count in our IT department. I see it reducing the grunt work and directing resource at more important stuff. We are so preoccupied with the crap, we never get to stretch our wings&#8230;</p> <p>Thanks to the <a href="http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/community/oracle-ace/index.html">Oracle ACE Program</a> and the<a href="https://blogs.oracle.com/developers/new-developer-champion-program"> Oracle Developer Champions Program</a> for making this all possible for me!</p> <p>So that&#8217;s another visit to San Francisco done. Due to funding changes I don&#8217;t know if I will visit again. Time will tell.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-7562" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/IMG_2658_small.png" alt="" width="700" height="467" /></p> <p>Here are the 14 posts that relate to this trip.</p> <ul> <li><a href="/blog/2017/09/27/oracle-openworld-2017-the-journey-begins/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : The Journey Begins</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/09/28/oracle-openworld-2017-oracle-applications-user-experience-oaux-strategy-day/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Oracle Applications User Experience (#OAUX) Strategy Day</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/09/29/oracle-openworld-2017-developer-champion-product-briefing/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Developer Champion Product Briefing</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/09/30/oracle-openworld-2017-oracle-ace-director-briefing/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Oracle ACE Director Briefing</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/01/oracle-openworld-2017-day-off/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Day Off</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-openworld-2017-user-group-sunday/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : User Group Sunday</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-autonomous-database-and-the-death-of-the-dba/" rel="bookmark">Oracle Autonomous Database and the Death of the DBA</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/03/oracle-openworld-2017-day-1-monday/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Day 1 (Monday)</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/04/oracle-openworld-2017-day-2-tuesday/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Day 2 (Tuesday)</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/05/autonomous-data-warehouse-cloud-hands-on-lab-my-thoughts/" rel="bookmark">Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Hands-On Lab : My Thoughts</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/05/oracle-openworld-2017-day-3-wednesday/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Day 3 (Wednesday)</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/06/oracle-openworld-javaone-2017-day-4-thursday/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld (JavaOne) 2017 : Day 4 (Thursday)</a></li> <li><a href="/blog/2017/10/07/oracle-openworld-2017-the-journey-home/" rel="bookmark">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : The Journey Home</a></li> <li>Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : It&#8217;s a Wrap (this post)</li> </ul> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/08/oracle-openworld-2017-its-a-wrap/">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : It&#8217;s a Wrap</a> was first posted on October 8, 2017 at 2:13 pm.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

GMT-0400 (EDT) Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : The Journey Home http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheOracleBaseBlog/~3/jPWEPQwrb8Y/ <p><img class="size-full wp-image-7496 alignleft" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/oow-2017.jpg" alt="" width="147" height="146" />For some reason I thought I was flying home early today. I wasn&#8217;t. The flight was 15:00.</p> <p>I had put myself on an waiting list for an upgrade, that I didn&#8217;t get. Unknown to me, and contrary to the advice from the Lufthansa agent I spoke to on the phone, this happened to mean I also lost my aisle seat for the 11+ hour flight home, since I was advised not to check-in online. Flying on a middle seat is not fun for anyone, but for me anything except an aisle is a big problem. It pretty much makes me freak out and fidget constantly. I once stood for 9 hours on a flight where I had a middle seat.</p> <p>Needless to say I was super-pissed once I got to the airport and found out. I know it isn&#8217;t the fault of the airport staff, so I was careful not to go supernova at anyone, but it was extremely hard work. I spoke to the people at the desk, who wrote down my details, but said there was nothing they could do at that time, but would see what they could do as check-in progressed. I wrote an email complaint to Lufthansa, and vented my frustration on Twitter for some time, then the plane was delayed by 30 minutes&#8230;</p> <p>Eventually I was called to the boarding gate and they had found an aisle seat for me again! It was such a relief as I would have annoyed the crap out of the people next to me if I had been in a middle seat.</p> <p>The flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt was fine except for one brief, but violent bit of turbulence early on in the flight. The staff had to stop the food service and strap in for about 10-15 minutes. I just closed my eyes, grabbed my tray and tried not to have flashbacks to a flight I was on that was like that for hours. There were a number of spilled drinks, vocal people and children crying, but it didn&#8217;t last too long. When that does happen, you are twitchy for the rest of the flight.</p> <p>I stood a lot during the flight and watched some films.</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5442430/">Life</a> : I enjoyed this. Quite derivative of alien sci-fi, but good.</li> <li><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0451279/?ref_=nv_sr_1">Wonder Woman</a> : The plot was very generic, but <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2933757?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm">Gal Gadot</a> was awesome and the fight scenes were some of the best I have seen in a superhero film. With the problematic origin story out of the way I&#8217;m looking forward to the future Wonder Woman films.</li> <li><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2209764/?ref_=nv_sr_1">Trancendance</a> : I re-watched this. I kind-of like it, even though it is a terribly flawed movie.</li> </ul> <p>We got to Frankfurt about 30 minutes late, which meant I had about 12 minutes to get from my arrival gate to the departure gate in another terminal. I checked with a member of staff, who suggested I wait for the next flight in 4 hours time, but I decided to try and make it, which involved me stomping through the airport like an aging rhino. A couple of people took pity on me, a panting sweaty mess, and let me through the fast lane at security, and let me jump the queue. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /> I made it to the boarding gate just as they were closing. A triumph for fatties everywhere!</p> <p>I got on the plane, went to the toilet and changed my t-shirt, after using my current one as a towel. Yuck.</p> <p>It was a short flight from Frankfurt to Birmingham with no dramas. I was doubtful my luggage would make it on such a short connections, but it was there waiting for me when I got to the baggage claim. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>So I&#8217;m back and dealing with jet-lag, washing, the post-event emotional crash and I&#8217;ve got to write a talk about it all to give at work.</p> <p>I&#8217;ll do a wrap-up post tomorrow when I am settled&#8230;</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/07/oracle-openworld-2017-the-journey-home/">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : The Journey Home</a> was first posted on October 7, 2017 at 9:57 pm.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

From there I went to my room, finished off some blogs and cleared down some work emails, then I was ready to start the day.</p> <p>OpenWorld finished the day before, but JavaOne continued into Thursday, and since I was registered for both I decided to check out some sessions. A quick look through the agenda showed every session for the day was fully booked. I decided to go down and check it out, in case people didn&#8217;t show. When I got there is was really busy, with people queuing for sessions, so I turned round and went back to the hotel.</p> <p>I heard later there were free seats in some of the sessions, but quite frankly waiting around on spec is not my idea of fun. There seemed to be a lot of angry people around, especially when they ran out of food. I can&#8217;t really complain as I didn&#8217;t pay for the conference, but if I was a paying attendee I would be really unhappy.</p> <p>In the evening I met up with some folks to grab some foods, then it was back to bed. I&#8217;m not sure I&#8217;ve ever had such an &#8220;unconferency&#8221; day at a conference before, except when I&#8217;ve been sick.</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/06/oracle-openworld-javaone-2017-day-4-thursday/">Oracle OpenWorld (JavaOne) 2017 : Day 4 (Thursday)</a> was first posted on October 6, 2017 at 9:17 pm.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

I do not pretend I grasp the full potential of Data Viz CS, but I can show you some simple steps to quickly create something good looking and potentially really useful.</p> <p>My very first steps were documented in this earlier article: <a title="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/09/10/hey-mum-i-am-a-citizen-data-scientist-with-oracle-data-visualization-cloud-and-you-can-be-one-too/" href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/09/10/hey-mum-i-am-a-citizen-data-scientist-with-oracle-data-visualization-cloud-and-you-can-be-one-too/">https://technology.amis.nl/2017/09/10/hey-mum-i-am-a-citizen-data-scientist-with-oracle-data-visualization-cloud-and-you-can-be-one-too/</a>.</p> <p>In this article, I start with two tables in a cloud database – with the data we used for the Soaring through the Clouds demo at Oracle OpenWorld 2017:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-6.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-6.png?resize=702%2C279&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>As described in the earlier article, I have created a database connection to this DBaaS instance and I have created data sources for these two tables.</p> <p>Now I am ready to create a new project:</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-7.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-7.png?resize=702%2C409&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>I select the data sources to use in this project:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-8.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-8.png?resize=702%2C315&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>And on the prepare tab I make sure that the connection between the Data Sources is defined correctly (with Proposed Acts adding fact – lookup data – to the Albums):</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-9.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-9.png?resize=702%2C326&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>On the Visualize tab, I drag the Release Date to the main pane.</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-10.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-10.png?resize=702%2C359&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p></p> <p>I then select Timeline as visualization :</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-11.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-11.png?resize=702%2C304&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Next, I bring the title of the album to the Details section:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-12.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-12.png?resize=702%2C315&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>and the genre of the album to the Color area:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-13.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-13.png?resize=702%2C341&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Then I realize I would like to have the concatenation of Artist Name and Album Title in the details section. However, I cannot add two attributes to that area. What I can do instead is create a Calculation:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-14.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-14.png?resize=622%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Next I can use this caclculation for the details:</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-15.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-15.png?resize=702%2C346&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>I can use Trellis Rows to create a Timeline per value of the selected attribute, in this case the artist:</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-16.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-16.png?resize=702%2C319&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>It is very easy to add filters – that can be manipulated by end users in presentation mode to filter on data relevant to them. Simply drag attributes to the filter section at the top:</p> <p></p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-17.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-17.png?resize=671%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>Then select the desired filter values:</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-18.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-18.png?resize=493%2C412&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>and the visualization is updated accordingly:</p> <p><a href="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image-19.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" style="margin: 0px auto; float: none; display: block; background-image: none;" alt="image" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb-19.png?resize=702%2C369&#038;ssl=1" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1"></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/06/fun-with-data-visualization-cloud-creating-a-timeline-for-album-releases/">Fun with Data Visualization Cloud&ndash;creating a timeline for album releases</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://technology.amis.nl">AMIS Oracle and Java Blog</a>.</p> Lucas Jellema https://technology.amis.nl/?p=46306 Fri Oct 06 2017 09:51:35 GMT-0400 (EDT) Tweet with download link for JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld slide decks https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/06/tweet-with-download-link-for-javaone-and-oracle-openworld-slide-decks/ <p>In a <a href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/08/10/when-screen-scraping-became-api-calling-gathering-oracle-openworld-2017-session-catalog-with-node/" target="_blank">recent article</a> I discussed how to programmatically fetch a JSON document with information about sessions at Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne 2017. Yesterday, slidedecks for these sessions started to become available. I have analyzed how the link to these downloads were included in the JSON data returned by the API.

As we know that Oracle Management Server (<strong>OMS</strong>) is a software system that functions as a middle tier between Oracle intelligent agents and Oracle management consoles. The system may operate on multiple nodes and by default uses a schema named <strong>DBSNMP</strong>.Through this system, database administrators may view and control their <strong>OEM</strong> domain(s).</p> <p>An <strong>OMS</strong> has special links with a repository database, used for storing <strong>OEM</strong> details. <strong>OMS</strong> service runs on the server, where <strong>Oracle 12c</strong> cloud control is installed. We can use <strong>EMCTL</strong> utility to stop and restart OMS service.</p> <p>cd $OMS_HOME/bin</p> <h5>Stopping OMS:</h5> <p></p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">oracle@test:…ta/app/oracle/oms12cr5/oms/bin$ ./emctl stop oms Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5 Copyright (c) 1996, 2015 Oracle Corporation.

https://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/2017/10/06/12c-parse/ <p>Following on from <a href="https://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/2017/10/03/parsing/#comment-101173"><em><strong>a comment to a recent posting</strong></em></a> of mine about <a href="https://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/2017/10/03/parsing/"><em><strong>&#8220;bad&#8221; SQL ending up in the shared pool</strong></em></a> and the specific detail that too much bad SQL could cause contention problems while staying virtually invisible, there&#8217;s <a href="https://community.oracle.com/thread/4086738"><em><strong>a related note</strong></em></a> today on the ODC (formerly OTN) forum of a little change in 12.2 that alerts you to the problem.</p> <p>Try executing the following anonymous block (on a non-production system):</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> declare m1 number; begin for i in 1..10000 loop begin execute immediate 'select count(*) frm dual' into m1; dbms_output.put_line(m1); exception when others then null; end; end loop; end; / </pre> <p>Then check your alert log (if you want to be a little cautious, change the 10,000 in the loop to something like 200). If you&#8217;re running 12.2.0.1 you&#8217;ll find something like the following:</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> ORCL(3):WARNING: too many parse errors, count=100 SQL hash=0x19a22496 ORCL(3):PARSE ERROR: ospid=4577, error=923 for statement: 2017-10-06T03:46:15.842431-04:00 ORCL(3):select count(*) frm dual ORCL(3):Additional information: hd=0x7673c258 phd=0x765151a8 flg=0x28 cisid=135 sid=135 ciuid=135 uid=135 2017-10-06T03:46:15.842577-04:00 ORCL(3):----- PL/SQL Call Stack ----- object line object handle number name 0x76734f18 5 anonymous block ORCL(3):WARNING: too many parse errors, count=200 SQL hash=0x19a22496 ORCL(3):PARSE ERROR: ospid=4577, error=923 for statement: 2017-10-06T03:46:15.909523-04:00 ORCL(3):select count(*) frm dual ORCL(3):Additional information: hd=0x7673c258 phd=0x765151a8 flg=0x28 cisid=135 sid=135 ciuid=135 uid=135 2017-10-06T03:46:15.909955-04:00 ORCL(3):----- PL/SQL Call Stack ----- object line object handle number name 0x76734f18 5 anonymous block </pre> <p>The warning will be repeated every hundred occurrences. As you can see the guilty (ORA-00923: missing FROM) SQL appears in the report so you know what you&#8217;re looking for. In my particular case, with the silly PL/SQL block, the address of the calling anonymous pl/sql block was also reported:</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> select sql_text from V$sql where child_address = '0000000076734F18'; SQL_TEXT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- declare m1 number; begin for i in 1..10000 loop begin execute immediate 'sel ect count(*) frm dual' into m1; dbms_output.put_line(m1); exception when ot hers then null; end; end loop; end; </pre> <p>In the case of the OP on ODC the SQL reported in the alert log was simply: &#8220;SELECT 1&#8221;. As Billy Verreynne suggested in the thread, this looks like the sort of code that would be sent to the database by some of the connection pooling clients to check that the database is up. Unfortunately (apart from the waste of effort) this particular setup seems to think it&#8217;s talking to some database other Oracle!</p> <h3>Footnote:</h3> <p>This is a feature of 12.2 &#8211; 11g and 12.1 don&#8217;t write such warnings to the alert log.</p> <h3>Lagniappe</h3> <p>A tweet from <a href="https://twitter.com/MohamedHouri"><em><strong>Mohamed Houri</strong></em></a> reminds me that parse failures like these, of course, show up in the instance activity stats, in particular:</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> Name Value ---- ----- opened cursors cumulative 10,006 enqueue requests 10,002 enqueue releases 10,002 sql area purged 10,000 sql area evicted 10,000 parse count (total) 10,008 parse count (hard) 10,002 parse count (failures) 10,000 </pre> <p>The enqueue requests are for the &#8216;CU&#8217; (cursor) enqueue which, I think, appeared in 10g &#8211; they&#8217;re acquired (and released) on every hard parse.</p> <p>Most of the figures that my session reports here are likely to be highly camouflaged by the rest of the activity from a normal system, so the most important number is the &#8220;parse count (failures)&#8221; &#8211; so it&#8217;s useful to know that you can subtract that number the other statistics to give you an idea of the impact that would be eliminated if you could located and stop the thing generating the failing statements.</p> <h3>Update</h3> <p>Patrick Joliffe (see pingback below) has <a href="https://jolliffe.hk/2017/10/08/identifying-invalid-sql-with-event-10035/"><em><strong>published an article</strong></em></a> pointing out that in earlier versions of Oracle you can set event 10035 to get the same information dumped into the alert log on <em><strong>every</strong></em> parse failure.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17633/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17633/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=jonathanlewis.wordpress.com&#038;blog=491988&#038;post=17633&#038;subd=jonathanlewis&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> Jonathan Lewis http://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/?p=17633 Fri Oct 06 2017 04:07:50 GMT-0400 (EDT) Naming Convention for Oracle 18c http://oracle-help.com/articles/naming-convention-oracle-18c/ <p>Below is the schedule and pertinent <strong>support</strong> information for currently released <strong>Oracle</strong> <strong>Database</strong> base releases and patch sets.

After two years in Amsterdam they decided it was time for something new and Ireland was the place to be for all open-source database technologies.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Pythian could of course not be missing from this conference and we had number of great </span><a href="https://blog.pythian.com/want-know-percona-live-europe-2017-dublin-ireland/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">sessions scheduled</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> for the conference.</span></p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-102697 size-full" src="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939.jpg" alt="" width="2484" height="1010" srcset="https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939.jpg 2484w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939-300x122.jpg 300w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939-360x146.jpg 360w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939-465x189.jpg 465w, https://blog.pythian.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_20170925_191939-350x142.jpg 350w" sizes="(max-width: 2484px) 100vw, 2484px" /></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I was, as a brand new Pythianite, very excited to be part of the team that went to Dublin and to be able to present a project I helped realizing at my previous employer before moving to Pythian: </span><a href="https://www.percona.com/live/e17/sessions/rolling-out-database-as-a-service-using-proxysql-and-orchestrator"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rolling out Database-as-a-Service using ProxySQL and Orchestrator</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">. Giving a presentation like that is always a little more stressful when the lead-author of one of the tools you’ll be presenting about is present in the room, but GitHub’s Shlomi Noach, lead-author of Orchestrator, gave me some good constructive feedback. So I was very relieved and happy when I was done!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The conference itself was quite a bit smaller than the US version in April but the content was of a very high standard. </span><a href="http://proxysql.com/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">ProxySQL</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, the open-source, high-performance proxy for MySQL, by René Cannaò was the talk of the town with no less than 11 sessions or tutorials having this project in their title. René did, after all, deliver a very good product to the community and he keeps improving it by releasing new versions with new features every few months. Recent additions include </span><a href="http://proxysql.com/blog/proxysql-cluster"><span style="font-weight: 400;">clustering the proxy-instances</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><a href="http://proxysql.com/blog/proxysql-143-clickhouse"><span style="font-weight: 400;">support for the ClickHouse column store</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> database and even having the proxy act as a sqlite-server.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Other things that were hot during this conference were the new features for MySQL 8.0. Oracle released the </span><a href="http://mysqlserverteam.com/the-mysql-8-0-3-release-candidate-is-available/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">8.0.3</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> release candidate on Sept 21st, just prior to the conference, and the Oracle team came to talk about new features like the </span><a href="https://www.percona.com/live/e17/sessions/recursive-common-table-expressions-in-mysql-80-part-1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">CTEs</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and Window-functions and the </span><a href="https://www.percona.com/live/e17/sessions/mysql-document-store-when-sql-and-nosql-live-together-in-peace"><span style="font-weight: 400;">NoSQL Document store capabilities</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">. Also MySQL Community Manager, Frédéric Descamps (a.k.a. lefred) talked about the InnoDB Cluster they released earlier this year.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Last but not least ClickHouse seems to be the rising star when it comes to open source column stores. Tom Arnfeld from CloudFlare presented a keynote presentation on how they moved their </span><a href="https://www.percona.com/live/e17/sessions/real-time-dns-analytics-cloudflare-clickhouse-keynote"><span style="font-weight: 400;">real time DNS analytics to ClickHouse</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> with 8M+ inserts per second and throughput of over 4GB/sec. Impressive statistics by my watch.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To conclude this review I would like to thank the </span><a href="https://www.percona.com/live/e17/topics/conference-committee"><span style="font-weight: 400;">conference committee</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> for all the work they do and the time they invest to review all the submissions so we can have some great content on conferences like this.

It’s not expected that tomorrow, thursday, will be a day full of new stuff, exciting news.

We may almost forget that most of the customers are thinking about the cloud, but at the moment just focussed on how to keep the daily business running.</p> <p>The session about Oracle Enterprise Manager, about upgrading to 13c (a packed room) is quite rare. Two years ago there were a lot of presentations about this management product, this year close to none. I’m very curious to know what happens after 2020. Oracle Management Cloud is coming rapidly. But… Oracle is using it quite heavy in the public cloud, so it is expected it won’t dissappear that fast. Here are the timelines:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-11-03-01-1.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="Foto 04-10-17 11 03 01 (1)" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-11-03-01-1_thumb.jpg?resize=691%2C483&#038;ssl=1" alt="Foto 04-10-17 11 03 01 (1)" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>At the end of the day, a session was planned about the most most important announcement of Oracle OpenWorld, preview of the autonomous database.</p> <p>Quite peculiar, at the very end of the day, in a room that was obviously too small for the crowd.</p> <p>A view outlines. The DBA is still needed, only the general tasks are disappearing:</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-15-38-54-1.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="Foto 04-10-17 15 38 54 (1)" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-15-38-54-1_thumb.jpg?resize=695%2C387&#038;ssl=1" alt="Foto 04-10-17 15 38 54 (1)" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>The very rough roadmap .</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-16-10-48-1.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="Foto 04-10-17 16 10 48 (1)" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Foto-04-10-17-16-10-48-1_thumb.jpg?resize=693%2C388&#038;ssl=1" alt="Foto 04-10-17 16 10 48 (1)" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>This Data Warehouse version is already there in 2017.

As I did I eyeballed a bunch of people turning up late for Chris&#8217; lab and giving the ladies controlling the door a hard time because it was full. People are super rude. Some people turned up to the session 35 minutes late and still expected to be allowed in to do a 45 minute hands-on lab. Go figure&#8230;</p> <p>From there I went down the road to the Marriott to see a session called &#8220;MySQL 8.0 Overview&#8221; by <a href="https://twitter.com/morgo">Morgan Tocker</a>. I&#8217;m mediocre MySQL DBA at best, so this was just me trying to keep up on things. There was a lot of familiar stuff for an Oracle DBA/developer, like JSON support, WITH clause, windowing functions, optimizer histograms, invisible indexes, instrumentation, roles etc. It seems I accidentally know a lot more about MySQL 8.0 than I thought I did. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>From there it was a quick dash across to Moscone West to see &#8220;Oracle Database Features Every Developer Should Know About&#8221; presented by my <a href="https://twitter.com/SQLMaria">sister-in-law</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/GeraldVenzl">son</a>. I did know all the features, but there was one I hadn&#8217;t written about, so I sense a backfill article coming after I get back to the UK. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>I was going to go back to the Marriott for a session, but got chatting and ended up missing it. After getting some food and bending <a href="https://twitter.com/dhaimes">David Haimes</a> ear for a while I headed back to another session.</p> <p>The next session was &#8220;Five Things You Might Not Know About the Oracle Database&#8221; presented by my <a href="https://twitter.com/SQLMaria">sister-in-law</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/dominic_giles">Dominic Giles</a>. Once again, I had heard of everything, but there were two things I had not written about yet. One backfill article and one new article coming. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>After talking a little time out to abuse <a href="https://twitter.com/orcl_dpeake">David Peake</a>, which is the highlight of any conference, I headed across to the room for my session, about 40 minute early. I got prepped, unplugged and started working through some notes again.</p> <p>My session, &#8220;<a href="/articles/misc/an-introduction-to-json-support-in-the-oracle-database">Make the RDBMS Relevant Again with RESTful Web Services and JSON</a>&#8221; was down as a Java One session. That combined with it being in the last block before the evening party meant I was a bit concerned I would be presenting to nobody. I shouldn&#8217;t have worried. People came and I had a good time. I spoke to <a href="https://twitter.com/connor_mc_d">Connor</a> later and he said I was moving really fast through the talk, 69 slides in 45 minutes, but he probably does 400 slides in that time, so I guess I was really slow. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /> The session finished at 17:15 and I was answering questions and chatting with some of the folks until 18:45.</p> <p>By the time I got to the bloggers meet-up it was winding to a close. Just long enough to grab some food, say hello to a few people, including <a href="https://twitter.com/debralilley">the wife</a>, and get into a photo. Most of the folks then moved on to the evening event, but I had already found a good home for my wrist-band, so I ducked out and headed back to the hotel to crash. The wife streamed videos of Ellie Goulding singing &#8220;Love me like you do&#8221;, in an attempt to remind me of the time we watched <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2015/02/19/fifty-shades-of-grey/">Fifty Shades of Grey</a> together, but I ignored her and went to bed. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>Tomorrow morning marks the end of the craziness&#8230;</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/05/oracle-openworld-2017-day-3-wednesday/">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : Day 3 (Wednesday)</a> was first posted on October 5, 2017 at 6:19 am.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

These are the notes I took during the lab. They are a little scrappy, but I think you will get the idea&#8230;</p> <p>I had some prior information due to the briefings I attended before OpenWorld, but everything I&#8217;ve mentioned here has been said publicly in OpenWorld sessions and is part of the hands-on lab.</p> <h2>Lab Outline</h2> <p>During the hands-on lab we did the following.</p> <ul> <li>Connected to the service from SQL Developer.</li> <li>Created new schemas and connections to the service.</li> <li>Created tables and constraints with RELY DISABLE NOVALIDATE.</li> <li>Loaded data into the tables from an object store.</li> <li>Created external tables to files in an object store.</li> <li>Connected to a sample schema and ran some queries before and after online scaling the service.</li> </ul> <h2>Introduction</h2> <ul> <li>The Oracle Public Cloud interface and provisioning looks similar to the current DBaaS offering, but a little more simplified. There are fewer options to fill in.</li> <li>The minimum storage is one 1TB with increments of 1TB. The storage scales on demand, so no dramas about starting small and increasing as you go. The storage is paid for on a monthly basis.</li> <li>CPU is paid for on an hourly basis. You can scale down to 0 and stop paying for the compute if you have downtime (weekends?), but you continue to pay for storage.</li> <li>You have an admin user, similar to system, but you don&#8217;t have SYS and SYSTEM access. No conventional OS access either. It&#8217;s similar to RDS for Oracle in that sense.</li> <li>Provisioning time for a new instance is about 10-20 seconds.</li> <li>Once you have the system provisioned there is pretty much no additional configuration you can do.</li> <li>Access requires a wallet, similar to the Exadata Express Cloud Service, so you need to download the connection details from the Client Access tab. You get a zip with the relevant connection details.</li> <li>If you manually create users, you need to grant them a role called DWROLE. That is the only role needed to connect and manage objects in the schema.</li> </ul> <h2>Object Creation</h2> <ul> <li>Tables are created with no constraints (except NOT NULL) and no additional features like partitions etc.</li> <li>Primary keys, unique keys and FKs are defined with RELY DISABLE NOVALIDATE, so the optimizer has the necessary metadata, but no physcial structures like indexes are created.</li> </ul> <h2>Loading Data</h2> <p>Privileged operations are done used the DBMS_CLOUD package. Some of the things we did during the hands-on lab include.</p> <ul> <li>DBMS_CLOUD.CREATE_CREDENTIAL &#8211; Creates a credential object to authenticate to the object store (Oracle or AWS S3). The credential is created once, and is used by default for all operations from then on. The object store is used as a source for data loads and external tables. On initial release the number of formats are limited, but it will eventually include additional source formats over time.</li> <li>DBMS_CLOUD.COPY_DATA &#8211; Copies data from the object store into a table. This is full load operation. There are a number of options including table_name, file_uri_list, format. The format defines how the file should be loaded.</li> <li>DBMS_CLOUD.CREATE_EXTERNAL_TABLE &#8211; Create an external table pointing to the files in the object store, rather than loading them into the database.</li> </ul> <p>The USER_LOAD_OPERATIONS view displays information about load operations.</p> <p>As with the existing database cloud services, if you need to transfer a large amount of data it can be done by shipping it to Oracle for them to seed it. I can&#8217;t remember the name of the specific service, but suffice to say you will not have to SCP your petabyte warehouse files to the service. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <h2>Scaling and Performance</h2> <ul> <li>The service is essentially scaled by resetting the CPU_COUNT for the instance in the cloud screens or via a REST API, so it is using a variation on <a href="/articles/11g/instance-caging-to-manage-cpu-usage-in-oracle-database-11gr2">instance caging</a> to control CPU. CPU is charged by the hour. You can scale down to 0 when you don&#8217;t need resource, but you will still be paying for storage.</li> <li>In the initial release the SGA and PGA sizes are tied to the CPU count, so adding an extra CPU increases the SGA and PGA allocated. Future releases may make these independent, but for now this is the way it works.</li> <li><a href="/articles/11g/auto-dop-and-parallel-statement-queuing-11gr2#parallel-statement-queuing">Parallel Statement Queuing</a> is enabled, and the cloud interface allows you to monitor the statement queue. The queue is understandably affected by CPU count.</li> <li>The <a href="/articles/11g/query-result-cache-11gr1">Query Result Cache</a> is enabled, so for small result sets a second run of the statement is super fast. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></li> <li>You are responsible for the schema design and the SQL you write against it, but you will not be creating indexes and partitioning strategies to address performance issues. The service is responsible for tuning the workload, not you.</li> </ul> <h2>Thoughts</h2> <ul> <li>The hands-on lab was obviously quite limited in terms of the scope, so I can&#8217;t give a comprehensive review, but from what I have seen so far it appears Oracle have delivered what they said they would. A fully managed service that removes the need for operational DBAs as creation, backups, patching and upgrades are not your business.</li> <li>It&#8217;s hard to know at this point how well the automated tuning works. As more people try it out with different workloads we will get a proper feel for what it can and can&#8217;t do. What we do know is you will not be adding indexes or partitioning stuff, so at least that aspect of tuning is out of your control.</li> <li>I don&#8217;t know if everyone got to see this, but Hermann scaled my service and it just worked, completely online.</li> <li>It&#8217;s fun to theorise how they have achieved some of the aspects of service using the existing features.</li> <li>I&#8217;ll be interested to get my hands on it once it goes live.</li> <li>I&#8217;ve mentioned a few times in other posts, this is the first generation of this service. We don&#8217;t know how it will evolveover the coming months.</li> <li>Remember, if you don&#8217;t like the lack of control you can alway pick DBaaS, Exadata Cloud Service or run on-prem. These will not have the option of being autonomous though.</li> <li>Overall my feeling is I like it. I know this might sound odd coming from a DBA, but I like the hands-off nature of it.</li> </ul> <p>Thanks to <a href="https://twitter.com/yasinbaskan">Yasin Baskan</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/sdjh2000">Hermann Baer</a> for putting on the session. Hermann, please don&#8217;t tell anyone you had to help me connect to the database when my brain rebooted and I wasn&#8217;t even capable of doing something as simple as that. It will remain our secret right?</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/05/autonomous-data-warehouse-cloud-hands-on-lab-my-thoughts/">Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Hands-On Lab : My Thoughts</a> was first posted on October 5, 2017 at 12:13 am.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".

Along with all this, the awesome Dominic Delmolino and I&#8217;ve been trying to finish up a podcast.  I consider Dominic one of the father&#8217;s of database DevOps, (the man&#8217;s the same age as me, so hopefully he won&#8217;t be insulted by the &#8220;father&#8221; description&#8230;:)) I&#8217;ve also been busy with the demands of local user group board demands and for my upcoming schedule, there&#8217;s a few things in the next week to consider:</p> <h4>October 11th:</h4> <p>I&#8217;ll begin with a webinar next week for the <a href="https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1180997919407963393">SQL PASS Virtualization Group</a>, doing a session on <strong>DevOps for the DBA</strong>.  This continues the ongoing discussion on the future of the DBA career, which many have been calling, DBA 3.0.</p> <h4>October 14th:</h4> <p>I&#8217;ll be presenting at <a href="http://www.sqlsaturday.com/683/Sessions/Schedule.aspx">SQL Saturday Charlotte</a> with more <strong>DevOps for the DBA</strong>, this time in person!  If you&#8217;re part of the SQL Server industry, you should be part of <a href="http://www.pass.org/">SQL Pass</a>, it&#8217;s free and there&#8217;s so much regional activity.  The education opportunities for SQL Server professionals is really impressive, so make sure to check it out.</p> <h4>October 18th:</h4> <p>I&#8217;m doing another webinar, this time for the <a href="http://wit.pass.org/">SQL Pass Women in Technology</a> group.  I&#8217;m incredibly pleased to be sharing my professional and personal journey in tech, <strong>The Power in the Simple Act of Doing</strong>.</p> <h4>October 27th:</h4> <p>Yes, there is an Oracle event in the midst of all those SQL Server ones!  I&#8217;ll be doing three sessions at the fall<a href="https://www.facebook.com/INOUG.ORG/"> Indiana Oracle User Group</a> event!   I just sent over the abstracts after I let them know months ago I would love to speak with them again and it will include a couple new talks, including an updated Oak Table talk, <strong>Farming Dinosaurs</strong> and <strong>Empowering Data Access in the Cloud</strong>.</p> <h4>October 30-Nov. 3rd</h4> <p>Microsoft <a href="http://www.pass.org/summit/2017/Speakers.aspx">Pass Summit</a> is HERE!!  This is annual geeky conference for the SQL Server experts.  I attended my first event last year and made it a goal to present the next year.  Well, after six months of presenting at SQL Server events/webinars, there I be!!  This is an incredibly welcoming community and guess what I&#8217;ll be speaking on?  <strong>DevOps Tools for a Winning Combination </strong></p> <p>The event occurs over the Halloween holiday and due to this, I&#8217;m working on my costume, which will be as &#8220;dry&#8221;

In most cases my answers were, let&#8217;s see what gets released. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>Once I had caught up I made a very brief trip to the gym to do a bit of weights and some stretching, then I cleaned up and headed down to the conference.</p> <p>I did a tour of the developer lounge and demo grounds in Moscone West again, then bumped into <a href="https://twitter.com/alexnuijten">Alex Nuijten</a>. We got talking and I went with him to see <a href="https://twitter.com/cdivilly">Colm Divilly</a> speaking about ORDS. I had my two cameras on the chair beside me during the session. When I got up to leave I left them there and we went out to get some food. Once we had eaten I noticed my cameras were missing, so we walked back to the room and some nice person had spotted them and handed them in. It&#8217;s not a proper OpenWorld unless I&#8217;ve temporarily misplaced my camera or laptop. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>From there I did a tour of the Moscone South exhibition hall, then went back across to the developer lounge in Moscone West. I ended up talking to a bunch of people on a variety of subjects including community programs, APEX, ORDS, SQL Developer and Docker, to name but a few. I was also introduced to <a href="https://bluebottlecoffee.com/">Blue Bottle Coffee</a>, which was nice, but not life-changing as I was lead to believe. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>I briefly saw <a href="http://debrasoracle.blogspot.com/">the wife</a>, who stayed long enough to show me a JavaScript app she had written, before going to meet more important people and no doubt tell them she&#8217;s not technical. It&#8217;s all getting very suspicious&#8230;</p> <p>Eventually I headed back to the hotel, dumped my stuff and headed out to grab some food. On the way I bumped into <a href="http://db-oriented.com/en/">Oren Nakdimon</a> and I introduced him to the delights of Chipotle. We must have spent somewhere between 60-90 minutes geeking out about all the stuff we had seen so far. We were the last people to leave the place as they were closing, which was kind-of funny.</p> <p>From there it was back to hotel to play catch-up and prepare for the following day!</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <p>PS.

Its not that the men were identified as better or worse than women, but just about how heavily we scrutinize and limit women while everyone else passes them by. Now I’m going to ask the Oracle folks to not take this personally, but hopefully take it as a <strong>call to arms</strong>, but I know how we love to shoot the messenger.  Hopefully you already know that I will have no qualms about deleting abusive or threatening comments to this post, so please think twice before doing and really think on what I&#8217;m posting here.</p> <p>As my technical work spans a number of communities, I have a broad range of experiences when it comes to how diversity is approached in different technical industries and its surprising how different each do approach it. It’s a complex challenge and of all the communities, (no matter if we talk Database, Big Data, DevOps, Testing, etc.) I have to give a lot of credit to the Microsoft SQL Server community on how they approach theirs as the most successful when it comes to women in the space. As with most community efforts, it’s driven by the people involved and the focus on the SQL community being one of family and treating each other with honesty and respect. It’s been an eye opener to me, just as it was when I adopted much of what I experienced in my limited involvement with them back in 2011 into my WIT mentoring initiative.</p> <p>The SQL Server community has a healthy involvement of women in their MVP program, the peer recognition program awarded yearly on community and technical contributions. If you question the validity of this, just look at my twitter followers and count the number of women from the SQL Server community that are active and realize this: I have less than 20% followers that are women and I’ve only been speaking at SQL Saturdays for <strong>six months</strong>. I’ve been part of the Oracle community for 7 years and is one of the main women identified with women in technology when discussing Oracle. The difference in quantity of active women from the SQL Server community vs. Oracle is evident and it’s not just about being users or Twitter.</p> <p>This brings me to this week, when the ACE Program, the comparable program from Oracle, published the official ACE Director photo:</p> <p><a href="http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/driving-for-change-women-in-oracle-technology/screen-shot-2017-10-03-at-2-50-57-pm/" rel="attachment wp-att-7221"><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-7221" src="https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-2.50.57-PM.png?resize=600%2C437" alt="" srcset="https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-2.50.57-PM.png?resize=1024%2C745 1024w, https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-2.50.57-PM.png?resize=300%2C218 300w, https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-2.50.57-PM.png?resize=768%2C558 768w, https://i2.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-2.50.57-PM.png?w=1312 1312w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>My first thought was, &#8220;Where are all the women?&#8221;  There&#8217;s never been a<strong> huge</strong> group of women that have been able to meet the demands of the ACE program and I knew there were a few obviously missing from the program photo, but I was alarmed and decided to go to the website to see if the photo was just a misrepresentation of reality.</p> <h3>The Numbers</h3> <p>Now, the &#8220;find an ACE&#8221; webiste doesn&#8217;t have a gender filter for searches, so I had to do the best I could, going by name and by any photos if I was unsure. I knew what the numbers were when I was previously involved in the program from WIT presentations, so I used this as a comparison to the current program.</p> <p><strong>The current counts per the website are:</strong></p> <p>384 active ACEs, 25 women in the program</p> <h4><strong>6%</strong></h4> <p><strong>When I was part of the program, there were:</strong></p> <p>485 ACEs, 35 women in the program</p> <h4><strong>7%</strong></h4> <p><strong>The ACE Director Program is doing a bit better:</strong></p> <p>Directors total: 106, 8 women</p> <h4><strong>7.5%</strong></h4> <p><strong>When I was part of the program, the percentage of women directors was higher too, though:</strong></p> <p>112 ACE Directors, 11 women</p> <h4><strong>9.8%</strong></h4> <p>With all the women in tech initiatives and programs since 2014, the numbers shouldn’t have gone <strong>down</strong>. I want to assure you, the ACE program is only one small area of Oracle and the program should be recognized for taking steps to bring more women in- I see them doing WIT luncheons and trying to get more activity around the women in the community.  The photo from Oracle Open World WIT ACE&#8217;s event demonstrates they&#8217;re really trying:</p> <p><a href="http://dbakevlar.com/2017/10/driving-for-change-women-in-oracle-technology/screen-shot-2017-10-03-at-3-00-36-pm/" rel="attachment wp-att-7222"><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-7222" src="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-3.00.36-PM.png?resize=600%2C354" alt="" srcset="https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-3.00.36-PM.png?resize=1024%2C604 1024w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-3.00.36-PM.png?resize=300%2C177 300w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-3.00.36-PM.png?resize=768%2C453 768w, https://i1.wp.com/dbakevlar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Screen-Shot-2017-10-03-at-3.00.36-PM.png?w=1312 1312w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>The reality we have to face-  this is an event with what?  35,000 attendees and this is how many women recognized and in attendance?  I see ad after ad for Oracle Open World and among the shining faces beaming back, there are a significant percentage of women in each one, but when it comes to those contributing, speaking and in attendance, (I’m not talking about in the booths, sales or marketing, but at <strong>the deeper, technical level</strong>) we’re still missing. At this time, we should be past just luncheons and recognize that we need more than some food to fix what’s broke.</p> <p><strong><em>The simple truth is, we have a significant problem dealing with women’s ambition.</em></strong></p> <h3>You Want Too Much</h3> <p>I have watched us fail the women of the community over and over again. We make excuses and scrutinize their contributions to a level that while they are wasting their time trying to convince everyone they are worthy, those around them, even those that may only be mediocre, are passing them by. After consistent roadblock to achieving the same as their male peers, they finally give up and decide that what contributions they make that are accepted are going to have to be enough.</p> <p>We are responsible for this, <strong>me included</strong>. I’ve been advised not to back women’s inclusion in the ACE program, telling me that if I do, it will just come off as me backing the candidate because she’s a woman. I’ve been told excuse after excuse of why a woman isn’t qualified and then I’m left pondering as men, with fewer qualifications, are awarded tiers above and beyond the “lofty goals she aspires to”.</p> <p>After Oracle, I aspired to have my ACE Director reinstated. I was asked multiple times <em>“Why do you need to have your ACED back, Kellyn?”</em> I was told, numerous variations of, <em>“you shouldn’t just think you deserve to have it reinstated.”</em> I just brushed it off, but the comments I received were incredibly alien to many of my male mentors. They couldn’t figure out why anyone would question my ambition to succeed or have something reinstated that I was so obviously still accomplishing. The bias that was shown to me by these individuals was beyond them and they called it as they saw it. I also knew that other women would be hearing similar statements when they attempted to accomplish what they saw their male peers doing.</p> <h3>Think Before We Advise</h3> <p>Before we offer advice on a female peer’s advancement opportunity or make a decision that could impact the opportunity, please consider the following:</p> <ol> <li>Am I offering honest and unbiased scrutiny of the female candidate?</li> <li>Even if I think I’m unbiased, am I experiencing any nagging feelings about the situation that I need to think through before I speak? This hesitation may be more about my own cultural upbringing on women’s ambition and not the candidate’s qualifications.</li> <li>Are their male peers to compare against and identify any bias that I may not have been first aware of?</li> </ol> <p>So many are surprised when they take a bias test and find out just how much culture can impact us when making decisions and offering advice. There are a significant amount of tiers of bias that we have to face around women’s ambition and if we don’t, we will continually fail the women in the Oracle community.</p> <h3>The Forgotten</h3> <p>As I researched the numbers, I noted who had ascended to ACE Director status and I had no issue with them achieving the tier they had. I have always been for an open community- one that welcomes and promotes contribution, but forgive me as I say this, I was left noting that there are women still not ACE Directors that should have been a very long time ago and I’m going to discuss two of them here.</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/MeKolbe">Michelle Kolbe</a> requires no introduction. She holds two board positions, both on a regional and an independent user group board. She speaks at events, contributes content and has offered an incredible amount of her time to the Oracle community. I’ve watched excuse after excuse not to make her an ACE Director and [apologies to her, she deserves better than this…] it needs to simply be corrected. She is the epitome of what you desire in the Oracle community, yet to officially recognize this seems beyond us as a community.</p> <p>Another one is <a href="https://twitter.com/DoBoutAnything">Janis Griffin</a>. I speak with her at both Oracle as well as SQL Server events. She has provided content, community support and valuable introduction to Oracle to those outside of our community. She’s been part of the community for decades, serving with user groups from the very beginning, yet she still isn’t an ACE Director. This is another failure for us to support, sponsor and lift up the women in our community.</p> <p>Both of these women have been held stagnant at a status of ACE for too long and if you question it, compare them to their male ACED counterparts and think again. We are simply too comfortable reaching for our token women of the community and seem to be satisfied.</p> <p>It’s an incredible group and I completely understand why people reach out to us.  Included with me are <a href="https://twitter.com/debralilley">Debra Lilley</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/HeliFromFinland">Heli Helskyaho</a>, Edelweiss <a href="https://twitter.com/edelweissk">Kammermann</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/SQLMaria">Maria Colgan</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/malcherm">Michelle Malcher</a> and a few others. If you were to try to list the main male speakers in the circuit, the list would vary greatly from person to person, but to name the women, it often comes back to the ones listed here when someone is searching for a woman to be included in an Oracle conference, webinar, book or interview. How do I know this? As I started out the paragraph, <strong><em>I’m one of this group.</em></strong></p> <p>In hindsight, I recognize that I created my mentoring groups and sponsored women with the plethora of opportunities that I was presented with as one of the “default” token women people reached out to. Our women in the community are rock stars, but we need to band together and start to help lift up those who aren’t recognized like we are. We need to help build them up, as they are invisible so often to the community as a whole.</p> <h3>Make a Change</h3> <p>I want to be clear on this- it falls to all of us to make this change. We women have a lot of power to do this for the community, but everyone is essential if you don’t wish to continue to see the numbers decrease. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Tim Gorman stepping up a very long time ago and telling me what I was capable of accomplishing. I wouldn’t have the career I have now if it wasn’t for Alex Gorbachev and Kerry Osborne saying, “come work for me.” I wouldn’t have received my first book deal if Jonathan Gennick hadn’t asked me to write on a SQL Server book. I wouldn’t have done as well with my time at Oracle if Mary Melgaard and a few others hadn’t gone through my offers and guided me to make the best decisions. Women need mentors and sponsors, along with representation. The community, especially we women in the more recognized group, should be reaching out to other women, offering to mentor and sponsor them.</p> <p>We women need to stop thinking the only women we can mentor or sponsor are those that share our ideals. We have to stop letting people peg us against each other and follow their recommendations, (I’m at fault for this, too!) and if a woman is doing the job, making the contributions, <strong>we should then make a professional decision to back her</strong>. This is professional, not personal and we need to learn to separate the two, because right now, most of us are failing at this.</p> <p>There is more than one seat at the table and the only way to address the “reverse quota”, (i.e. “we already have a female speaker” or “We already have a woman on the panel”) is to add more women representing Oracle. The more of us that there are, the more we shift from the “token woman” to being viewed as another tech expert.</p> <h3>The List</h3> <p>I’m constantly told that there aren’t women to speak at events, contribute written content or to take on initiatives. I say that’s BS and to make it easier for everyone, I’ve collected a list of those women I can think of right off the top of my head, along with links to their twitter profiles.</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/miaurman">Mia Urman</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/komal_goyal17">Komal Goyal</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/apanidhar6">Apurva Panidhar</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/EssbaseLady">Natalie</a> Delemar<br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/thtechnology">Karen Cannell</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/courtneyllamas">Courtney Llamas</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/McilroyJackie">Jackie Mailroy</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/NevianaZhgaba">Neviana Zhgaba</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/">Paula Pullas</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/floo_bar">Flora B.</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/CarinaMendesBI">Carina Mendes</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/opal_EPM">Opal Alaphat</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/AnsoOften">Ann-Sofie Vikstrom Often</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/annsjokvist">Ann Sjökvist</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/ritan2000">Rita Nunez</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/sandyFloresMx">Sandra Flores</a><br /> <a href="https://twitter.com/oraesque">Sabine Heimsath</a></p> <p>If you know of a woman I’ve missed from this list, please email me at dbakevlar at gmail and I will update this post regularly.</p> <p>I’m through with what I’ve observed for the last 1 ½ years and no amount of excuses are going to fix it. <strong>Oracle, we’re better than this.

What a shame as I so wanted to swim in cold water and see Bjoern in a knitted jockstrap&#8230; Not!</p> <p>The first action for the day was to watch Larry&#8217;s keynote on YouTube. It&#8217;s important to know what has been said officially, so I don&#8217;t go saying something I shouldn&#8217;t and get &#8220;disappeared&#8221; for breaking the NDA. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /> Once that was done I wrote, what seems to have been a <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-autonomous-database-and-the-death-of-the-dba/">controversial blog post</a>. I&#8217;m rather disappointed at the reaction to the Autonomous Database. As I expected, very few people seem to have actually listened to what was said in the keynote and I suspect many didn&#8217;t even read the entirety of my blog post. Instead, they saw &#8220;Autonomous Database&#8221; and launched into &#8220;it&#8217;ll never work&#8221; mode. It&#8217;s like people want it to fail and want to keep doing the same old boring crap for the rest of their lives. I am hopeful this suite of services will be the start of something interesting, but time will tell. Fingers crossed!</p> <p>My first stop at the conference was the Oracle Developer Lounge in Moscone West. I had a quick look around at what was going on there, including robot Tai Chi.</p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/URPxDiu3zF0" width="560&q height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>From there is was a quick scan of the Demo Grounds to decide what I am going to spend time on tomorrow. I said hello to a few of the Oracle staff I know, and of course told the people on the performance tuning stand they were no longer needed. I&#8217;m guessing by the end of OOW17 they will have heard that about 50,000 times&#8230; <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>I spent quite a bit of time talking to <a href="https://www.thatjeffsmith.com/">Jeff Smith</a> about an assortment of things related to SQL Developer and <a href="/articles/misc/articles-misc#ords">ORDS</a>. Then I had a chat with <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnabrock/">John Brock</a> (JB) about <a href="http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/jet/index.html">Oracle JET</a>. I&#8217;m not a proper JavaScript developer (yet), but I wanted to say thanks for the really good session he did for us at the ACE Director briefing. The demo grounds are a great place to get more information about technologies you know, but also a great place to get context about technologies you don&#8217;t know. You just have to admit you&#8217;re a noob and ask for the basics. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>I grabbed some food, then went up to the Grand Hyatt to spend the afternoon at the Oracle Applications User Experience (#OAUX) Exchange. I had already seen some of this stuff the previous week at the <a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/09/28/oracle-openworld-2017-oracle-applications-user-experience-oaux-strategy-day/">#OAUX Strategy Day</a>, but it gave me more opportunities to ask questions and get some more context. It&#8217;s a difficult job, but they are gradually converting me away from the command line. You can see my shock and awe at what they are doing here on this tweet from an interactive desktop. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-7584" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/oaux-shock.jpg" alt="" width="500" height="281" /></p> <p>Towards the end of the #OAUX Exchange I met up with the <a href="http://debrasoracle.blogspot.com/">wife</a> and she persuaded me to get in on a photo. Little did I know we would use these pedicabs to go down the hill, through rush hour traffic. If you saw me, I was laughing on the outside, but crying on the inside. Knowing how Debra is in a regular taxi, I&#8217;m amazed she agreed to do this.</p> <p>We popped into the UKOUG meet-up in the darkest bar I&#8217;ve ever been in. You needed the flashlight on your mobile phone to see where you were going. We were only there for a few minutes before Debra had to go to some meet-up for important people, and I went back to my room to crash.</p> <p>Once in my room I had to deal with the fallout from the blog post earlier in the day. I think I need to start a counselling service.</p> <p>More of the same tomorrow. My feet are killing me. I really should lose some weight.</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <p>PS.

So where you do think the statement text will be while the Syntax Check is going on ?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>And the answer looks like &#8230;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&#8230; the shared pool. Here&#8217;s a simple test, cut-n-paste from SQL*Plus running under 12.1.0.2 in the SYS schema (I&#8217;ve also done this in the past with older versions):</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> SQL&gt; select user frrom dual; select user frrom dual * ERROR at line 1: ORA-00923: FROM keyword not found where expected SQL&gt; select kglhdpar, kglhdadr, kglobt03, kglnaobj from x$kglob where kglnaobj like '%frrom%' and kglnaobj not like '%kgl%'; KGLHDPAR KGLHDADR KGLOBT03 KGLNAOBJ ---------------- ---------------- ------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 00000000D1EE3880 00000000AEF43F40 bshhvh0ypcz6x select user frrom du 00000000D1EE3880 00000000D1EE3880 bshhvh0ypcz6x select user frrom du 2 rows selected. SQL&gt; </pre> <p>So the statement is garbage and fails (or ought to be failing) on a syntax text &#8211; but I can find it in x$kglob &#8211; the library cache objects &#8211; in the SGA with a parent and child entry.</p> <p>I have to say that when I first read, many years ago, that there was a syntax check it struck me that the fastest way of doing a syntax check on a &#8220;good&#8221; system would be to start with a search for the text in the library cache. If it were there (and on a good system it probably would be within a few minutes of startup) then you could have a flag that avoided the CPU cost of doing the syntax check and move straight on to the semantic (basically object and permissions) check.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17619/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17619/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=jonathanlewis.wordpress.com&#038;blog=491988&#038;post=17619&#038;subd=jonathanlewis&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> Jonathan Lewis http://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/?p=17619 Tue Oct 03 2017 11:15:40 GMT-0400 (EDT) Voting Now Open for the 2018 - 2019 Board of Directors http://www.odtug.com/p/bl/et/blogaid=747&source=1 I've written about the values of being a member of ODTUG many times in the past.

A whole lot of general sessions with announcements and strategic directions on product / service level. In this post I’ll try to summarize the highlights of this day. Quite hard, there are a whole lot of interesting sessions which overlap. Always the feeling I’m missing something. And a very interesting session at the very end of the day as a surprise.</p> <p><span id="more-46215"></span></p> <p>It started with the keynote of Mark Hurd, no big news, or it must be the revisiting of his predictions a year ago. This holds true:</p> <p>&#8211; By 2025 the number of corporate-owned data centers will decrease by 80%</p> <p>&#8211; 80% of production apps will be in the cloud by 2025</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Hardware : not shouting out loud, but there’s a new generation of</p> <p>&#8211; Engineered systems, the X7 line. Engineered for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (but also for on-premises)</p> <p>&#8211; Sparc servers with the Sparc M8 processor.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As mentioned earlier, Oracle Management Cloud is becoming more dominant as ‘single pane of glass’.</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/OMC-overview.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="OMC-overview" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/OMC-overview_thumb.jpg?resize=536%2C315&#038;ssl=1" alt="OMC-overview" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>Software : Wim Coekaerts</p> <p>&#8211; Solaris will be supported and developed for a long time !</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image.png?ssl=1"><img title="image" src="https://i2.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/image_thumb.png?resize=539%2C285&#038;ssl=1" alt="image" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>Oracle Kubernetes Cloud is started!</p> <p>A few slides about key announcements I really can’t judge by it’s value:</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/key-integration.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="key-integration" src="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/key-integration_thumb.jpg?resize=525%2C295&#038;ssl=1" alt="key-integration" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/key-security-management.jpg?ssl=1"><img title="key-security-management" src="https://i1.wp.com/technology.amis.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/key-security-management_thumb.jpg?resize=523%2C294&#038;ssl=1" alt="key-security-management" border="0" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>The last session was about new features of Database 18c (december 2017), quite interesting.

Most recently in my post before this announcement called <a href="/blog/2017/09/22/no-dba-required/">No DBA Required</a>.</p> <p>As a cloud provider, Oracle want to make products as autonomous as possible because it reduces the amount of bodies they need to look after them and reduces human error. Yes, even the best of us screw up! It&#8217;s also annoying when you have a good product and stupid people use it badly, then blame the product. The aim of this suite of autonomous databases is to automate as much as possible to reduce the need for human interaction and free us from the mundane. There is an important slide at about 41 minutes that sums this up well. Less time on infrastructure, patching, upgrades, ensuring availability, tuning. More time on database design, data analytics, data policies, securing data. With the possible exception of tuning that can be interesting, let me put this another way.</p> <blockquote><p>Less time on boring shit. More time on important shit!</p></blockquote> <p>This is firmly targeted at removing the need for operational DBAs. A role that *you* should have already automated out of your organisation anyway. If you&#8217;ve not, then you have failed.</p> <p>It should be obvious that the Development DBAs are sitting pretty here. The thinkers are safe. The recipe followers are not. Your mantra from now on should be&#8230;</p> <blockquote><p>Keep learning. Keep improving yourself. Keep your job!</p></blockquote> <p>For context it&#8217;s worth mentioning a few things.</p> <ul> <li>Oracle 18c is effectively 12.2.0.2, but as has happened with recent patchsets, it contains a bunch of new functionality.</li> <li>Although Oracle 18c has new features that make it easier to build an autonomous database, the &#8220;Autonomous Database&#8221; is a cloud service, so you will need to run your database on Oracle Public Cloud, or on Cloud@Customer. Just installing 18c on-prem will not get you an autonomous database.</li> <li>This is the first generation of the first service in a suite of database services for a variety of workloads. The more customers that use these services, the more workloads Oracle will see and the more autonomous they can make them. This is the beginning of a process, not the conclusion.</li> </ul> <p>My view? Bring it on. Save me from the boring crap! <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <p><strong>Update</strong>: Rather disappointingly, but as I expected, many people don&#8217;t seem to be able to look past the name of the service and are just making knee jerk reactions.</p> <p>Also, there seems to be some perception that I&#8217;ve drunk the Kool Aid on this. I&#8217;ve been looking at the information about the service and I think it is interesting. Over time I will refine my opinion, as the facts emerge. What I won&#8217;t do is write it off before it&#8217;s even been released. It&#8217;s that sort of attitude that has turned some DBAs into inflexible dinosaurs. You&#8217;ve got to evolve or die people!</p> <p><strong>Update 2</strong> : I&#8217;ve now tried the service.

This Sunday traditionally is filled with presentations of usergroups, customers and product management, and at the end of the day the welcome-keynote. In the presentations there’s not really exciting news, they will have to wait until the keynotes. But some observations can be done already.</p> <p><span id="more-46193"></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The big news at the keynote – The Autonomous Database &#8211;  was not that big anymore, Larry Ellison announced it a week ago, I <a href="https://technology.amis.nl/2017/10/01/the-day-before-oow17-expectations-and-my-agenda/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">did a wrap up yesterday</a>.</p> <p>Quite a summary of the keynote has been written by <a href="https://www.businessinsider.nl/oracle-18c-database-patch-cybersecurity-flaws-2017-10/?international=true&amp;r=US" target="_blank" rel="noopener">businessinsider,</a> And <a href="https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/914866257492533249">here</a> are the highlights on video.</p> <p>The most important slide of the keynote regarding the changing role of the DBA is included in this post : Less time on Administration, more time on innovation. Oracle 18c requires no DBA, is highly available, and autotune queries.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>So what about the presentations I went to at Sunday. Just a few observations (very limited in scope of course):</p> <p>&#8211; The phrase ‘Single Pane of Glass’, which was used for Enterprise Manager 13c a while ago, is now being used at the Oracle Management Cloud (OMC). The context and scope is howerver quite different, OMC is strategically meant for monitoring and managing a complete hybrid cloud environment, including Azure, Amazon and the on-premises environment.</p> <p>&#8211; The word ‘management’ has been inserted in the slides of OMC. Not just monitoring anymore. What are the consequences for Oracle Enterprise Manager?</p> <p>&#8211; Security is on the agenda</p> <p>&#8211; Machine Learning is trending.</p> <p>&#8211; Some services are barely present at this OpenWorld:  Oracle Enterprise Manager, Exa-systems (not the cloud service), Weblogic platform, Oracle Database Appliance, in summary a lot of hardware and on-premises management. And when hardware is mentioned it is just a step to the final goal: the cloud. With one big exception: the Oracle Cloud Machine for Cloud@Customer.</p> <p>&#8211; A lot of sessions with one theme: journey to the cloud.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Mentioned it before, just a quick note for now.

As Mr. <b>Larry Elliso</b>n has been announced in OOW17 about the future database that is a huge change in the world of Oracle technology. In the world of automation, we have seen huge changes from basic daily life to professional life. There is a huge advancement in each and every area of life. The journey of <b>Oracle</b> database started from<strong> Oracle </strong>v2: 2.3 reached on 12c.</p> <p>In the latest announcement, we have look on <b>Oracle 18c</b>. Most of the companies cost to go on performance tuning and maintenance of database due to bad performance business has to suffer from lots of issues like loss of business, workload etc. this kind of key points kept in mind while designing Oracle 18c which is now Oracle <b>Autonomous</b> <b>Database</b> Cloud. It offers total automation based on machine learning and eliminates human labor, human error, and manual tuning.</p> <p>It has lots of new features which prefer<strong> No human labor means half cost, no human error means 100x  reliable</strong>. Its main aim is  <strong>&#8220;self-driving&#8221;</strong> database.</p> <p>Here <b>No</b> <b>Human Labor</b> represents automation in Installation, Patching, Upgrades and Tuning of Oracle Database which uses the Robot Technique with the help of <b>Machine</b> <b>Learning</b>.</p> <p>This ground-breaking Oracle Database technology automates management to deliver unprecedented availability, performance, and security—at a significantly lower cost. For the business use, Oracle 18c is available in  December 2017.</p> <p><a href="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg"><img data-attachment-id="1648" data-permalink="http://oracle-help.com/articles/oracle-18c-future-database/attachment/images-5/" data-orig-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?fit=290%2C174" data-orig-size="290,174" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="images" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?fit=290%2C174" data-large-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?fit=290%2C174" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1648" title="" src="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?resize=290%2C174" alt="" srcset="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?w=290 290w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?resize=60%2C36 60w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/images.jpg?resize=150%2C90 150w" sizes="(max-width: 290px) 100vw, 290px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As in previous of version of Oracle, the database had huge development but yet something was missing which is completed in new one database. there is some reason why so we can say Oracle Revolutionizes Cloud with the World’s <b>First Self-Driving Database</b> which is mention below:-</p> <ul style="list-style-type: circle;"> <li><strong><strong>Self-Driving:- </strong></strong>Technology grows so fast we have seen lots of normal equipment that are self-drive now in Oracle 18c we have this feature.<strong><strong> </strong></strong>The self-recovering intelligence to automatically detects and applies corrective exertion to ensure nonstop access to your data.This new autonomous database is easy to deploy. Creating a new data warehouse is a simple “load and go” service. Users simply specify tables, load data, and then run their workloads in a matter of seconds—no manual tuning needed.</li> <li><strong>Lower Cost: &#8211; </strong> No business would like to spend much money like a water flows. Each and every business either small scale or large scale cost plays an important role for them. All kind of industries spends a huge amount of money on IT departments to sustain in a big competition. It eliminates costly downtime due to manual, error-prone configurations with adaptive management including a self-driving application of patches, updates, and upgrades. Self-tuning uses adaptive machine learning, which automatically activates columnar caching, storage indexes, compression, and resource prioritization to deliver resources needed for actual work performed on the workloads, avoiding costly over-provisioning.</li> <li><strong>Reliable:- </strong>The self-recovering capability automatically detects and applies corrective actions to ensure nonstop access to your data. Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud will automatically implement Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and cross-region Oracle Active Data Guard to ensure always-on availability. We can find no downtime for maintenance, updates, upgrades, or adding compute and storage capacity.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Conclusion:-</strong> We must say that technology is shaping  a move towards a huge change which is good for all technical folks we get a new things to learn and upgrade our technical skills, industries war against cost and downtime will be solved and customers are the king of market there also some benefit for customers time will save that is huge positive change for them. Due to any change, we cannot reach to the negative side as in the history of computer we can see the demand of Computer does not the reduce job and other opportunities on another hand it has been solving the lots of issues.

In this post let&#8217;s have a look on data dictionary architecture. Which might be new for you but I am sure it will be more interesting as <strong>Oracle</strong> <strong>Database</strong> architecture. We all know about the data dictionary in Oracle database. It plays an important role in Oracle database. There is two kind of data dictionary views. first one is static views another one dynamic.  Now let&#8217;s have look on its work.</p> <p><strong>Static Views:-</strong> The static views are based on internal Oracle tables, such as<strong> USER$, TAB$,</strong> and <strong>IND$</strong>. If you have access to the <strong>SYS</strong> schema, you can view underlying tables directly via SQL. For most situations, you only need to access the static views that are based on the underlying internal tables.</p> <p><a href="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png"><img data-attachment-id="1638" data-permalink="http://oracle-help.com/oracle-database/data-dictionary-architecture-oracle-database/attachment/capture-11/" data-orig-file="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?fit=1201%2C447" data-orig-size="1201,447" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="Capture" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?fit=300%2C112" data-large-file="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?fit=980%2C365" class="size-medium wp-image-1638 alignleft" src="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=300%2C112" alt="" srcset="https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=300%2C112 300w, https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=768%2C286 768w, https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=1024%2C381 1024w, https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=60%2C22 60w, https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?resize=150%2C56 150w, https://i0.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture.png?w=1201 1201w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a>The data dictionary tables (such as<strong> USER$, TAB$, IND$</strong>) are created during the execution of the<strong> CREATE DATABASE</strong> command. As part of creating a database, the <strong>sql.bsq</strong> file is executed, which builds these internal data dictionary tables. The sql.bsq file is generally located in the <strong>ORACLE_HOME/RDBMS/admin</strong> directory; you can view it via an OS editing utility (such as vi, in Linux/Unix, or Notepad, in Windows). The static views are created when you run the catalog.sql script (usually, you run this script once the <strong>CREATE DATABASE</strong> operation succeeds). The catalog.sql script is located in the <strong>ORACLE_HOME/RDBMS/admin</strong> directory.</p> <p><strong>NOTE:-</strong> If you manually create a database (not using the dbca utility), you must be connected as the <strong>SYS</strong> schema when you run the <strong>catalog.sql</strong> and <strong>catproc.sql</strong> scripts. The <strong>SYS</strong> schema is the owner of all objects in the data dictionary.</p> <p>You can view the creation scripts of the static views by querying the <strong>TEXT</strong> column of <strong>DBA_VIEWS</strong>; for example,</p><pre class="crayon-plain-tag">SQL &gt; set long 5000 SQL &gt; select text from dba_views where view_name = 'DBA_VIEWS';</pre><p><strong>Dynamic Views:- </strong>The dynamic performance data dictionary views are colloquially referred to as the <strong>V$</strong> and <strong>GV$</strong> views. These views are constantly updated by Oracle and reflect the current condition of the instance and database. Dynamic views are critical for diagnosing real-time performance issues.<br /> The <strong>V$</strong> and <strong>GV$</strong> views are indirectly based on underlying X$ tables, which are internal memory structures that are instantiated when you start your Oracle instance. Some of the V$ views are available the moment the Oracle instance is started.</p> <p>For example, <strong>V$PARAMETER</strong> contains meaningful data after the <strong>STARTUP</strong> <strong>NOMOUNT</strong> command has been issued, and doesn’t require the database to be mounted or open. Other dynamic views (such as <strong>V$CONTROLFILE</strong>) depend on information in the control file and therefore contain significant information only after the database has been mounted. Some <strong>V$</strong> views (such as <strong>V$BH</strong>) provide kernel-processing information and thus have useful results only after the database has been opened.<br /> <a href="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png"><img data-attachment-id="1639" data-permalink="http://oracle-help.com/oracle-database/data-dictionary-architecture-oracle-database/attachment/2-19/" data-orig-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?fit=1088%2C435" data-orig-size="1088,435" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}" data-image-title="2" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?fit=300%2C120" data-large-file="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?fit=980%2C391" class="size-medium wp-image-1639 alignleft" src="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=300%2C120" alt="" srcset="https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=300%2C120 300w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=768%2C307 768w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=1024%2C409 1024w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=60%2C24 60w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?resize=150%2C60 150w, https://i2.wp.com/oracle-help.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/2.png?w=1088 1088w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" data-recalc-dims="1" /></a>At the top layer, the V$ views are actually synonyms that point to underlying <strong>SYS.V_$</strong> views.

It will add some good knowledge in Oracle&#8217;s knowledge treasure. Normally in any interviews some of the questions ask for this topic example What is the difference between data dictionary views and dynamic performance views?, What do you mean by data dictionary views?<b></b>  <strong> </strong>Let&#8217;s have look on the technical definition.</p> <p><strong>An important part of an Oracle database is its data dictionary, which is a read-only set of tables that provides administrative metadata about the database. The data dictionary stores critical information about the physical characteristics of the database, users, objects, and dynamic performance metrics. A senior-level DBA must possess an expert knowledge of the data dictionary.</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>A data dictionary contains information such as the following:</strong></p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li>With the help of data dictionary, we can have information about what users are in the database and if any of their passwords expired.</li> <li>It displays the owners of each table and associated privileges.</li> <li>Data dictionary views show the settings of various database parameters.</li> <li>We can determine which columns have foreign key constraints defined on them.</li> <li>It displays tablespaces and associated data files and space usage.</li> <li>The definitions of every schema object in the database, including default values for columns and integrity constraint information</li> <li>The amount of space allocated for and currently used by the schema objects</li> <li>The names of Oracle Database users, privileges and roles granted to users, and auditing information related to users</li> </ul> <p><strong>Types of Data dictionary views:-</strong></p> <p><strong>Static Views:- </strong>The contents of your database, such as users, tables, indexes, constraints, and privileges.These are sometimes referred to as the static <strong>CDB/DBA/ALL/USER</strong> data dictionary views, and they’re based on internal tables stored in the <strong>SYSTEM</strong> tablespace. The term static, in this sense, means that the information within these views only changes as you make changes to your database, such as adding a user, creating a table, or modifying a column.</p> <p><strong>Prior to Oracle Database 12c, there were only three levels of static views:</strong></p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li><strong>USER</strong>:- The <strong>USER</strong> views contain information available to the current user. For example, the <strong>USER</strong>_<strong>TABLES</strong> view<br /> contains information about tables owned by the current user. No special privileges are required to select from<br /> the <strong>USER</strong>-level views.</li> <li><strong>ALL</strong>:- The <strong>ALL</strong> views show you all object information the current user has access to. For example, the <strong>ALL_TABLES</strong> view displays all database tables on which the current user can perform any type of <strong>DML</strong>  operation.</li> <li><strong>DBA</strong>:- The <strong>DBA</strong> views contain metadata describing all objects in the database (regardless of ownership or access privilege). To access the <strong>DBA</strong> views, a <strong>DBA</strong> role or <strong>SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE</strong> must be granted to the current user.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Starting with Oracle Database 12c, there is a fourth level that is applicable when using the container/pluggable </strong><strong>database feature:</strong></p> <ul style="list-style-type: disc;"> <li><strong>CDB</strong>:- The <strong>CDB</strong>&#8211;<strong>level</strong> views are only applicable if you’re using the pluggable database feature. This level provides information about all pluggable databases within a container database (hence the acronym <strong>CDB</strong>).</li> </ul> <p><strong>Dynamic Views:- </strong>A real-time view of activity in the database, such as users connected to the database, SQL currently executing, memory usage, locks, and I/O statistics. These views are based on virtual memory tables and are referred to as the dynamic performance views. The information in these views is continuously updated by Oracle as events take place within the database. The views are also sometimes called the V$ or GV$ views. The V$ and GV$ views are indirectly based on underlying X$ tables, which are internal memory structures that are instantiated when you start your Oracle instance. Some of the V$ views are available the moment the Oracle instance is started.</p> <p><strong>Note:- If you work with Oracle RAC, you should be familiar with the GV$ global views.These views provide global dynamic performance information regarding all instances in a cluster (whereas the V$ views are instance-specific).</strong></p> <p><strong>The differences between data dictionary views and V$ views, in Oracle. </strong></p> <table style="width: 673px; height: 141px;"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="width: 300.983px;"><strong>Data Dictionary views</strong></td> <td style="width: 356.017px;"><strong>V$ views</strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 300.983px;">Data will not be lost even after instance is shutdowned</td> <td style="width: 356.017px;">Data will be lost if instance is shutdown</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 300.983px;">Will be accessible only if instance is OPENED</td> <td style="width: 356.017px;">(some are) Will be accessible even if instance is in <strong>mount</strong> or <strong>nomount</strong> stage (STARTED)</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 300.983px;">Data dictionary view names are plural</td> <td style="width: 356.017px;">V$ view names are singular</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Thank you for giving your valuable time to read the above information.</p> <p>For More Detail , You can join us as follow:</p> <p>LinkedIn Group: <em><strong><a class="js-entity-name entity-name" href="https://www.linkedin.com/groups/12065270" data-app-link="">Oracle Cloud DBAAS</a></strong></em></p> <p>Facebook Page: <em><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/oraclehelp">OracleHelp</a></strong></em></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://oracle-help.com/oracle-database/fundamental-data-dictionary-oracle-database/">Fundamental of Data Dictionary in oracle database</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://oracle-help.com">ORACLE-HELP</a>.</p> Anuradha Mudgal http://oracle-help.com/?p=1620 Mon Oct 02 2017 06:08:51 GMT-0400 (EDT) markhot https://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/2017/10/02/markhot/ <p>How can a single piece of SQL text &#8211; checked very carefully &#8211; end up with multiple SQL_IDs ? There are probably quite a lot of people who know the answer to this question but won&#8217;t think of it until they&#8217;re reminded and, thanks to a question that came up on <em><strong><a href="https://community.oracle.com/thread/4085383">the forum formerly known as OTN a couple of days ago</a></strong></em>, I was reminded about it recently and rediscovered an article I had drafted on the topic a few years ago.<em><strong><br /> </strong></em></p> <p>The specific problem on the forum was about having a huge number of child cursors for a single parent thanks to a frequently executed update statement that updated all 50 columns of a table using bind variables to do so. The reason why a single statement could produce so many child cursors seemed to be due to the variation in the lengths of the bind variables supplied &#8211; which could well be the consequence of an <a href="https://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/2007/01/05/bind-variables"><em><strong>internal library mechanism</strong></em></a> rather than an explicit design mechanism written into the client code. One of the comments to my 2007 article suggested event  10503 as a damage limitation mechanism, but there was some problem with it not working as expected at the time. A quick check on MoS now reports bug 10274265 : &#8220;EVENT 10503 NOT WORKING ON THE SESSION LEVEL&#8221; as fixed in 12.1 with lots of backport patches to various versions of 11.2</p> <p>Moving on from the back-story, the case that prompted my draft note in 2014 was the simpler one of having lots of sessions constantly executing exactly the same SQL statement and child cursor, so rather than having a latch/mutex type of problem because of a large number of child cursors I was seeing a problem purely because of the level of concurrent access to the same child cursor.  The solution in the version of Oracle the client was using at the time was to tell Oracle to mark the SQL statement as <em><strong>&#8220;hot&#8221;</strong></em> by setting a hidden parameter; but the mechanism is now officially exposed in a procedure called <em><strong>dbms_shared_pool.markhot()</strong></em> that I learned about a few months ago when I was at a client who had a similar problem with highly concurrent execution of a small set of statements &#8211; with the extra twist that the table referenced in the critical statements was a partitioned table which suffered a fairly regular partition exchange.</p> <p>When a statement (through it&#8217;s <em><strong>&#8220;full_hash_value&#8221;</strong></em>) is marked as hot, an extra value visible as the <em><strong>property</strong></em> column in <em><strong>v$db_object_cache</strong></em> is set to a value that seems to be dependent on the process id of the session attempting to execute the statement, and this value is used as an extra component in calculating a new <em><strong>full_hash_value</strong></em> (which leads to a new <em><strong>hash_value</strong></em> and <em><strong>sql_id</strong></em>). With a different <em><strong>full_hash_value</strong></em> the same text generates a new parent cursor which is (probably) going to be associated with a new library cache hash bucket and latch. The property value for the original parent cursor is set to &#8220;HOT&#8221;, and the extra copies become &#8220;HOTCOPY1&#8221;, &#8220;HOTCOPY2&#8221; and so on. Interestingly once an object is marked as HOT and the first HOTCOPYn has appeared the original version may disappear from <em><strong>v$sql</strong></em> while still existing in <em><strong>v$db_object_cache</strong></em>.</p> <p>The number of &#8220;HOTCOPYn&#8221; versions of the statement is limited by the hidden parameter <em><strong>&#8220;_kgl_hot_object_copies&#8221;</strong></em> which (according to my notes) defaults to either <em><strong>cpu_count</strong></em> or <em><strong>cpu_count</strong></em>/2. On my most recent test on 11.2.0.4 it seemed to be the latter.</p> <h3>Marking a cursor hot</h3> <p>There are three options:</p> <ul> <li>set a hidden parameter in the startup file</li> <li>execute an <strong><em>&#8220;alter system&#8221;</em></strong> command to set the hidden parameter</li> <li>from 11.2.0.3 onwards (possibly earlier in 11.2) call <strong><em>dbms_shared_pool.markhot()</em></strong></li> </ul> <p>Examples:</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> Startup file: _kgl_debug=&quot;hash='cc7d5ecdcc9e7c0767456468efe922ea' namespace=0 debug=33554432&quot; Alter system call with multiple targets: alter system set &quot;_kgl_debug&quot; = &quot;hash='cc7d5ecdcc9e7c0767456468efe922ea' namespace=0 debug=33554432&quot;, &quot;hash='59a1f6575a5006600792ee802558305b' namespace=0 debug=33554432&quot; ; markhot() procedure: begin dbms_shared_pool.markhot( hash =&gt;'71fc6ccf9a3265368492ec9fc05b785b', namespace =&gt;0, global =&gt;true ); end; / </pre> <p>The <em><strong>namespace</strong></em> identifies the object as an SQL Cursor (you can mark other types of object as hot if you need to), and for those of a mathematical bent you&#8217;ll work out that the <em><strong>debug</strong></em> values is power(2,25).</p> <p>The value supplied as the <em><strong>hash</strong></em> is the <em><strong>full_hash_value</strong></em> and you can find this in <em><strong>v$db_object_cache</strong></em> either by searching on some string that easily identifies your statement, or by searching <em><strong>v$sql</strong></em> on a string to get the (short) hash value of the statement and using that to search <em><strong>v$db_object_cache</strong></em> on the <em><strong>hash_value</strong></em> column.</p> <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate"> select hash_value, full_hash_value, namespace, child_latch, property hot_flag, executions, invalidations from v$db_object_cache where name like '{some part of your critical SQL statement}' ; </pre> <p>I ran into two problems using the <em><strong>markhot()</strong></em> approach. The first not terribly serious &#8211; the second fatal, except I&#8217;m not going to do it again and I wouldn&#8217;t have run into it if I hadn&#8217;t been impatient working around the first.</p> <p>First: if you&#8217;ve already got lots of sessions executing the statement and holding cursors open in some way before you call <em><strong>markhot()</strong></em> then it may be some time before all those sessions release the hot parent and child and acquire a &#8220;cool&#8221; parent and child and unfortunately you can&#8217;t call markhot() until at least one session has opened the relevant cursor &#8211; and that&#8217;s a problem that isn&#8217;t relevant if you&#8217;ve got the hidden parameter set.</p> <p>Secondly: although eventually your hot cursor(s) will drop out of use, if you try to get rid of them early by a cunning call to <em><strong>dbms_shared_pool.purge()</strong></em> you may find that you don&#8217;t manage to purge them; if you decide to try again, and again (as I did) you may find that your session goes into an infinite CPU spin and no-one can get at the hot cursor.  Be patient, once you&#8217;ve marked a cursor as hot your application will (probably) end up spreading itself over the copies.</p> <p>One last detail &#8211; if, for any reason, you decide that a cursor no longer needs to be marked hot there is a procedure <em><strong>dbms_shared_pool.unmarkhot()</strong></em> that takes the same three parameters to clear the property and allow the copies to disappear.</p> <h3>Footnote</h3> <p>The OTN problem that prompted me to write this note wasn&#8217;t about high concurrency levels, it was about mutex contention while searching for the right child cursor. The <em><strong>markhot()</strong> </em>procedure doesn&#8217;t really look as if it&#8217;s designed to address this issue but, as a side-effect of having multiple parent cursors for the same statement text, there should be fewer sessions searching each child-cursor chain at any one moment and this may be enough to reduce the contention. Statistically, of course, every child chain is likely to end up the same length so the amount of shared pool memory used by the SQL statement will eventually grow by a factor matching the number of hot copies produced &#8211; but if the problem is contention it may be better (e.g.) to have 16 times the memory used so that 100 concurrent sessions can be spread across 16 different chains rather than having 100 sessions all trying to search the same chain at the same time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p><br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17306/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/17306/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=jonathanlewis.wordpress.com&#038;blog=491988&#038;post=17306&#038;subd=jonathanlewis&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" /> Jonathan Lewis http://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com/?p=17306 Mon Oct 02 2017 03:42:06 GMT-0400 (EDT) Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : User Group Sunday http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheOracleBaseBlog/~3/8k5PjWQjsr0/ <p><img class="size-full wp-image-7496 alignleft" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/oow-2017.jpg" alt="" width="147" height="146" />The day started with a <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">run</span> walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. We gathered in the hotel lobby, and since I am now a performing monkey I had to do the splits for Jeff Smith, then we got a taxi across to the visitors center at the city side of the bridge.</p> <p>Some folks stayed behind to wait for the other runners to get there. A group of us just walked across and back.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-7562" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/IMG_2658_small.png" alt="" width="700" height="467" /></p> <p>The view was terrible. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt="🙂" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /></p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-7563" src="https://oracle-base.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/IMG_2660_small.png" alt="" width="700" height="467" /></p> <p>Then it was back to the hotel to get ready for the day to begin.</p> <p>The registration queues were really long, but they moved quickly. I didn&#8217;t have time to pick up the additional materials because I had to get to the first official events for me at OOW17, which were the multi-presenter EOUC events.</p> <ul> <li>EOUC Database ACES Share Their Favorite Database Things <ul> <li><a title="Posts by Franck Pachot" href="https://blog.dbi-services.com/author/franck-pachot/" rel="author">Franck Pachot</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.confluent.io/blog/author/robin/">Robin Moffatt</a></li> <li><a href="https://helifromfinland.blog/">Heli Helskyaho</a></li> <li><a href="https://antognini.ch/blog/">Christian Antognini</a></li> <li><a href="https://juliandontcheff.wordpress.com/">Julian Dontcheff</a></li> <li><a title="View all posts by Oren Nakdimon" href="http://db-oriented.com/en/">Oren Nakdimon<br /> </a></li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/mfevzikorkutata?lang=en">M.

The attendance was low this year, especially for the second session. I think database people left after the first session, which was a pity as the Dev Champions spoke about things database people need to know too. The internal layout of the Marriot Hotel didn&#8217;t help. Things were so much more obvious in Moscone. I found the sessions enjoyable. I really like this format.</p> <p>After those sessions were complete I met up with <a href="https://twitter.com/yoyo_gbiker">Gilbert Standen</a> to talk about his Oracle on Linux Containers project <a href="https://github.com/gstanden/orabuntu-lxc/releases/tag/5.0-beta">Orabuntu-LXC</a>, which will support Docker in the future.</p> <p>From there is was back to the queues to pick up the rest of my registration items, then back to the hotel. In the evening we went down to the pier for the Oracle ACE dinner. After a quick photo call it was food, drinks and socialising for the rest of the evening.</p> <p>Cheers</p> <p>Tim&#8230;</p> <hr style="border-top:black solid 1px" /><a href="https://oracle-base.com/blog/2017/10/02/oracle-openworld-2017-user-group-sunday/">Oracle OpenWorld 2017 : User Group Sunday</a> was first posted on October 2, 2017 at 6:54 am.<br />©2012 "<a href="http://www.oracle-base.com/blog">The ORACLE-BASE Blog</a>".
