After what seems like eons since we first started on it, I’m excited to announce a new book I co-authored is finally out. The book is called “Building Database Clouds in Oracle 12c” and is available on Amazon. Of course, it really isn’t that long ago that we started writing the book, but there’s been a lot happening between then and now!
The book was co-authored with Tariq Farooq and Sridhar Avantsa. Tariq asked me to write the material on Enterprise Manager (chapters 4 – 8 in the book), which was done over a number of releases of EM12c. We deliberately left the material on the versions it was written on, because people are still on a variety of different releases, so you can see how it applies in the version you’re using.
From a content perspective, this is what the book covers:
This issue can be seen in either EM12c or EM13c AWR Warehouse environments. It occurs when there is a outage on the AWR Warehouse and/or the source database that is to upload to it.
As some of you would already know, for my sins I am the product manager with responsibility for BI Publisher in Enterprise Manager [I must have a lot of sins because I’m also responsible for Change Management, Compliance Management, Configuration Management (these three form the Database Lifecycle Management pack), jobs, the target discovery framework, and at least part of DBaaS along with data cloning and refresh
This question was posted in Twitter from @matvarsh30, who asked, “How can I display CPU usage over different periods of time for databases in Enterprise Manager?”
SQL Monitor is one cool tool. Via EM12c, it empowers everyone, (yes, that means the developer, too, so give them the access to view this data via Cloud Control, please!) This is a top five list, but it doesn’t stop there, just remember, this is my favorite features when using Cloud Control with SQL Monitoring.
Creating a trace file from EM12c is quite easy and doesn’t require a DBA offering up the world to allow a developer or support person to perform this action.
I’ve had a lot of people email and message me asking me what I’m doing with the Raspberry Pi and I wanted to share before the actual RMOUG Quarterly Education Workshop, (QEW) this Friday at Elitches.
More and more companies are consolidating environments. Server sprawl has a high cost to any business and finding ways to consolidate to more powerful servers or to the cloud is a productive undertaking for any company.
The Consolidation planner in Enterprise Manager has been around for quite some time, but many still don’t utilize this great feature.
Happy Birthday to me!
I had a chance to take a closer look at the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance, (ZDLRA) via Cloud Control today and really liked the dashboard that’s included in the plugin for the product. This post isn’t going to cover the installation of the plugin or configuration- I was just intrigued by the dashboard and wanted to go over the great features that are part of it.
