One common problem: You are allocated to a new project and find that nothing is documented.
By running this script, you get four important points of information: Tablespace status, installed products and its versions, oracle parameters different to default and status of tables:
SET LINESIZE 1000
SET PAGESIZE 1000
prompt You can leave this script copied at $ORACLE_HOME\rdbms\admin\
prompt - Remember to use also statspack o bstats depending on the Oracle version
prompt - Review alert.log
prompt TABLESPACE STATUS
Select t.tablespace_name "Table
This is my first entry here.
I would like to criticize criticism for case sensitive object naming in Oracle and PL/SQL.
As you might know - Oracle is converting object names to uppercase by default. Whenever you create object like
CREATE TABLE my_table(my_column NUMBER);
it would be created as
At the same time some people might create table
CREATE TABLE myTable(myColumn NUMBER);
which would become
What is tricky about the above is the way Oracle is parsing queries.
Installing Oracle 11g 64 bit on Windows Server 2008
When installing Oracle 188.8.131.52 on Windows Server 2008 64 bit, the installer gave a an error saying the Operating System ( OS ) was not supporting. In looking at the install log on c:\program files\oracle, I noticed the installer thinks the OS is windows vista.
To work around this error, I selected the check box for user verified and continued with the install.
Use the SQL Tuning Advisor for tuning SQL statements. Typically, you can run this advisor in response to an ADDM performance finding that recommends its use.
Additionally, you can run the SQL Tuning Advisor on the most resource-intensive SQL statements, referred to as top SQL, from the cursor cache or the AWR, as well as on a user-defined SQL workload.
To run the SQL Tuning Advisor do the following:
RAC Background Processes:
1. Lock Monitor Processes ( LMON)
2. Lock Monitor Services (LMS)
3. Lock Monitor Daemon Process ( LMD)
4. LCKn ( Lock Process)
5. DIAG (Diagnostic Daemon)

KILLING SESSIONS IN ORACLE

One of my procedure is taking long time to complete.
I have worked in a table with one timestamp field namely Actiondate. We have updated the sysdate value of inserting time to that field. It contains around 30 lakhs records.
I want to get the records which are inserted a particular day.
I run the following 2 queries..
select * from history
where trunc(actiondate) > trunc(sysdate)
order by docintno
select * from history
where trunc(actiondate) > '01-dec-2009'
order by docintno
Both are taking too much time to give the results.
Both SQL Trace and TKPROF help to find the statistics of an SQL statement which could be used for query optimization.
Start Oracle SQLTRACE:
In Oracle, to start an SQLTRACE for the current session, execute:
ALTER SESSION SET SQL_TRACE = TRUE;
Stop Oracle SQLTRACE
In Oracle, to stop SQL tracing for the current session, execute:
ALTER SESSION SET sql_trace = false;
Trasliteration - Conversion of double/triple byte characters to single byte characters for various requirementsSubmitted by ayush_anand on Mon, 2009-12-07 06:49
I recently came across a document where the requirement was to convert from triple/double byte characters to single byte characters to send it for export complaince check as the export compliance system can accept only single byte characters.
Basically the useful thing about this was they were using IBM ICU project(an open source project) for this process,so in a way making it more open to developers.
These were the pros and cons for IBM identified by them.
- No interface needed (written in Java, integrable in Oracle)
- High level of portability, flexibility and scalability
- No int
