Rename your DB clone completely

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Oracle | 2 Comments

Introduction Have you ever renamed your database? When you cloned a DB, you probably started it with a new name and cloning (duplicating) with RMAN provided a new DBID, right? So why should we need to rename a DB? There may be several reasons: due to changed company rules, you need to rename all your DBs After a restore you need to run the DB with another name After a snapshot clone, (see my recent…

Some Artificial Intuition in Oracle SQL_ID?

By | Oracle | One Comment

By Franck Pachot . This post is something I discovered by chance when writing about tagging SQL statement with recognizable comments. We know that Oracle is introducing more and more artificial intelligence and machine learning in the database engine, but here is the first time I see something where random or hash values seems to bring some meaning. There are two common ways to run a query and find it in V$SQL: add some tag…

Oracle – testing resource manager plans?

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, Oracle | 3 Comments

By Franck Pachot . I never remember that in order to use instance caging you need to set a Resource Manager Plan but don’t need to set CPU_COUNT explicitly (was it the case in previous versions?). Here is how to test it quickly in a lab. SQL> startup force ORACLE instance started. SQL> show spparameter resource_manager_plan SID NAME TYPE VALUE ——– —————————– ———– —————————- * resource_manager_plan string SQL> show spparameter cpu_count SID NAME TYPE VALUE…

Oracle Blockchain Tables: COMMIT-Time

By | Oracle | No Comments

Oracle Blockchain Tables are available now with Oracle 19.10. (see Connor’s Blog on it), they are part of all editions and do not need any specific license. I.e. whenever we need to store data in a table, which should never be updated anymore and we have to ensure data cannot be tampererd, then blockchain tables should be considered as an option. As Oracle writes in the documentation that blockchain tables could e.g. be used for…

Oracle Rolling Invalidate Window Exceeded(3)

By | Oracle | One Comment

By Franck Pachot . This extends a previous post (Rolling Invalidate Window Exceeded) where, in summary, the ideas were: When you gather statistics, you want the new executions to take into account the new statistics, which means that the old execution plans (child cursors) should be invalidated You don’t want all child cursors to be immediately invalidated, to avoid an hard parse storm, and this is why this invalidation is rolling: a 5 hour window…

Oracle DB on Azure with Multitenant Option

By | Cloud | 3 Comments

By Franck Pachot . If you want to run an Oracle Database in the Microsoft Azure cloud, you will install it yourself on a VM. And then, you can expect the same as when you install it in your premises, in a virtual environment. Except that Oracle makes it two times more expensive by accepting to license the processor metric on vCPUs at the condition that the Intel core factor is not applied. And in…

Learn ODA on Oracle Cloud

By | Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . You want to learn and practice your ODA command line and GUI without having an ODA at home? It should be possible to run the ODA image on VirtualBox but that’s probably a hard work as it is tied to the hardware. About the configuration, you can run the Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator on your laptop but I think it is not compatible with the latest odacli. However, for a long…

19c serverless logon trigger

By | Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . I thought I already blogged about this but can’t find it. So here it is, with a funny title. I like to rename oracle features by their user point of view (they are usually named from the oracle development point of view). This is about setting session parameters for Oracle connections, directly from the connection string, especially when it cannot be set in the application (code) or in the DB server…
