Nice notebook style blog site
Posted by John Hallas on December 29, 2011
It is not often that I would post just to mention someone else’s blog but there is always a first time.
In the idle time that generally happens between Xmas and New Year I was catching up with various mails that I had marked as ‘follow-up – today’, which is quite a misnomer for me as I rarely follow-up and never on the same day. I came across a post from Karl Arao on Oracle-L in which he mentioned a script stored on a site he runs.
Karl describes it as “Just another web notebook about Oracle,Linux,Troubleshooting,Performance,etc..etc” and that is a good summary. It just contains excerpts of notes and lots of links to other web articles. It just seems a different format to most blogs and I found it interesting to browse down the r/h menu list and look at a few interesting notelets. I suspect mots of us have something similar, mine is a Word document called vodafone_notes.do although it is 5 years and 6 sites since I worked there. The difference is that this is an online shared utility and that is what attracted it to me.
Karl no doubt will be sending me as hamper as a thank you for directing thousands of hits to his site.
My next 2 posts will cover :-
- altering WRI$_OPTSTAT_SYNOPSIS tables to speed up the gathering of stats
- adding a trigger to detect when a standby database is open, in which case it will to turn off the dataguard broker.
There I have committed myself – but note that I am using the nowait option of commit so it might be a while
Best wishes to my readers in 2012.
