Small Intermezzo Towards Miracle OpenWorld 2010

Created a small YouTube introduction movie as requested by Moans for the Miracle OpenWorld 2010 event this year. I am happy they more or less resolved their issues with Oracle Legal regarding the naming for the event (see the movie and news section on the Miracle OpenWorld 2010 main page).

Anyway, made a small attempt (in HD) to tell a bit about XML on YouTube.

Hope to CU around somewhere this year.

I hope to see some of you there, and will get the final part posted before RMOUG – so the picture will be complete. If you’ve got any questions, it’s a good opportunity to come and heckle at one of those events!

Well if you have already characterized your workload, you may want to definitively determine which internal database activity is stressing your CPU, IO, and network subsystems. So this tool will avoid the guess work of selecting that “unit of work”… check out the link for more details…
