Time Is On My Side, Maybe

A recent MOS document discusses, albeit briefly, an issue with AWR reports that’s been going on since 10.2.0, namely that the elapsed time numbers for queries executed in parallel are considerably greater than the actual elapsed clock time. Let’s look at why that is and what can be done about it.

Inappropriate behaviour

You pick up little funny things in the day to day with Oracle.
Like this one when you try to drop a tablespace with a queue table in it:
drop tablespace MY_TSPACE including contents
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1

EM12c Cloud Control Metric Extensions – Monitor failed DBMS SCHEDULER Jobs

So what are Metric Extensions?

As the name implies metric extensions enables us to extend the out-of-the-box monitoring capabilities of Enterprise Manager and customize it according to the requirements of our specific environment.

Very often we may have some monitoring and alerting requirements for which metrics are not available in OEM and we are having  to run external scripts outside OEM.

For example we would like to be alerted and notified via OEM in the following circumstances:

The greatest cybersecurity concerns of the new year [VIDEO]


Hi, welcome to RDX! While cybersecurity experts may not have a crystal ball to tell them which threats will impact companies the most, it’s still important to prepare for the future.

So, what does the average data breach look like in 2015? More people are expected to use mobile payment solutions and other similar systems this year. As a result, it’s likely that cybercriminals will use any tactics at their disposal to infiltrate this technology and the protocols associated with it.
