As Connor pointed out in his comment on the last post, Incremental Statistics might still turn out to be a bit trickier than you thought once you start using them on many or very large tables, even once you've got the basics right.
Which is why there's still a place for the detailed technical blog posts, once you've got the basics clear. The problem with not having the basics clear is that I've had people tell me things about Incremental Stats based on the blog posts and, when I read them, they make sense to me but I can also see why they might confuse others. Anyway, for completeness, here are some terrific posts about Incremental Stats.
Read blogs, by all means, but maybe start off with White Papers and the documentation and full presentations?
So the first tutorial will show how to create a jira issue directly from the database. We will create two types of issues, a bug and a subtask to an existing issue. .... Read more on my blog

The OTN Yathra 2014 tour is over and I’m back home now. Here are all the blog posts from the tour.
Although I come from the second biggest city in the UK, Birmingham has a very slow pace in comparison to other UK cities. Friends had told me how busy India was, so I was quite nervous about this trip and how I would cope with it. My initial fears were confirmed during my first taxi ride from Amritsar airport to Jalandhar. Getting ill on the first morning of the tour wasn’t a good omen either. Once the kind folks at the Lovely Professional University sorted me out with some medical attention, things started to get better and I started to believe I might make it to the end of the tour alive.
As the tour progressed I got into my stride and really started to enjoy the whole process. As I’ve said many times, I’m not a fan of travelling, but I like being at different places. The travelling part of this tour was very strenuous, which was my own fault for choosing to do all 7 events, but that was easily outweighed by getting the opportunity to connect with the attendees and speakers in all the cities.
Here come the much deserved thank you messages:
My lasting memories of India will be:

Application developers frequently experiment to achieve higher quality builds, they try things out, make mistakes and find fixes. Database design can be like that too, but rapidly changing the schema in traditional shared environment tends to break the application.
In this webinar, Kyle Hailey will explore how different types of cloning technology work and their benefits and limitations. The webinar will also demonstrate how you can setup and coordinate risk-free database experiments using Delphix and Red Gate’s Oracle tools.

Once upon a time, Oracle Support had a note called Script: Lists All Indexes that Benefit from a Rebuild (Doc ID 122008.1) which lets just say I didn’t view in a particularly positive light :) Mainly because it gave dubious advice which included that indexes should be rebuilt if: Deleted entries represent 20% or more of […]

This months project will be in the same line as last month. It will be an oracle integration to the issue tracking system Jira from Atlassian. There are two big use cases for me in this. One, is that a lot of my customers have bought the Confluence->Jira pack, so beeing able to integrate the database directly to issues and tasks, can make a lot of things easier and more effective. .... read more on my blog
