I love talking about Oracle Ksplice and how cool a technology and feature it is. Whenever I explain to customers how much they can do with it, they often just can't believe the capabilities until I show them, in a matter of literally 5 seconds that it actually really -just works-.
During Oracle OpenWorld, we talked about it a lot, of course, and I wanted to show you how far back these ksplice updates can go. How much flexibility it gives a system administrator in terms of which kernel to use, how easy and fast it is, etc...

In order to understand how to effectively manage NFS file systems within the Oracle VM Manager, we must first understand the underlying assumption that each NFS server being accessed by Oracle VM servers are for the exclusive use of Oracle VM. It is assumed that no non-Oracle file systems are being shared/exported from a storage array that is part of an Oracle VM environment.
The MySQL team just released MySQL 5.6.20. One of the cool new things for Oracle Linux users is the addition of MySQL DTrace probes. When you use Oracle Linux 6, or 7 with UEKr3 (3.8.x) and the latest DTrace utils/tools, then you can make use of this. MySQL 5.6 is available for install through ULN or from public-yum. You can just install it using yum.
