Who never had to measure the disk performances on a system?
Speaking about Linux performance monitoring includes a significant part on disk performances. If you are facing applications or databases running slower than expected or than on other environments, you may take a look on the I/O performances.
This blog aims to provide to introduction to a pretty interesting tool, iozone…
In this post, I will explain how to install Oracle Fusion Middleware Forms and Reports 11g R2 for a high availability architecture on a Windows platform. For the Linux platform, it’s approximately the same even though the node manager is a daemon.
Recently, during my many missions, a client asked me to give access rights to the SQL Server Logs from SSMS to his application managers.

This is “too many rights” for this IT manager… but no other way!
This post presents the configuration of the tmpfs filesystem size on SLES 11 in order to use the Oracle 11.2 Automatic Memory Management feature (AMM) through the Oracle instance parameter memory_target.
Last week, Oracle Ace Director Jonathan Lewis held an Oracle Optimizer Workshop at dbi services BaselArea. I would like to share some of the key learnings of this really interesting exchange I experienced together with my colleagues.
Oracle Application Express – APEX 4.1 Introduces many new features such as :
Improved error handling and user-defined exception processing
Application Express now supports the use of ROWID for updates, inserts and deletes as an alternative to specifying primary keys
Developers can now easily add the capability for end-users to load spreadsheet data into existing tables within an application
The calendar wizards have been enhanced to include the ability to create an Edit page as part of creating the calendar
Building on their initial introduction in Release 4.0, the look and feel of Websheets in Release 4.1 has been substantially improved and the controls redesigned to make it more intuitive for users

I have been advising to use Perl for a long time in order to automate Oracle processes and operations. This week however, I tried for once to write a small procedure on a simple Linux shell (ksh and bash). This posting focuses on the shell internals and “nightmare” more than on Oracle related issues.
I decided to take some times in this cold February’s month to continue this small series. This time, I’m going to speak about Reporting Services (SSRS) and these new features.
Like my other article “SQL Server 2012: New features on Integration Services (SSIS)“, this article presents a summary from new features and enhancements for SQL 2012 Reporting Services.
