AWK to the rescue – wait event histogram from trace file

I wrote a very simple script in AWK to create wait event histogram (for db file scattered read, db file sequential read, direct path read and direct path read temp) based on 10046 trace file with wait events. Maybe someone will find it useful 🙂 The sample output looks like this: Enjoy 😉

Exadata – direct path write temp and flash disks

Some time ago one of my students asked me if temp segments are being written to flash disks on Exadata… Well I wasn’t sure 🙂 But recently I had some time to check it. Let’s create some query that will generate temp segment: Great. Now we have to do some tracing at the cell servers […]

Sparc M7 vs Intel and P8

I had a pleasure to work with my colleagues from Oracle – Radosław Kut and Krzysztof Marciniak – at comparing the performance of In-Memory queries between Sparc M7, Intel® Xeon® X5670 and Intel® Xeon® E5-2699. You can find results of our findings in this presentation: https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/s/delivery_production/docs/FY16h1/doc17/DB12c-on-SPARC-M7.pdf Following their methodology I’d like to present appropriate results […]

Oracle SPARC M7 – tracing DAX with DTrace and busstat

Thanks to Oracle I had a possibility to test the new Sparc M7 with DAX coprocessors to boost In-Memory performance. You can read about it here and here My first thought was – how to check if and when the DAX coprocessors are being used? When you have a POC for Exadata, you want to […]

oracle dblinks – performance considerations

Let’s imagine the following situation – you have a table called EMPLOYEES_TMP which is a global temporary table with a variable number of rows – totally nondeterministic. And there is a query which runs very often to compare primary key values between this table and a remote one (which is basically the same but not […]

Oracle 12c – internals of threaded execution

At UKOUG Tech’15 (Super Sunday) there was a session called "12c: A Closer Look at the Multi-Process Multi-Threaded Model for Oracle on Linux/Unix" by Markus Flechtner. Since then I can’t stop thinking about the performance of this feature. Why Oracle decided to provide it? I did some tests regarding sort operations and threaded execution was […]

Oracle 12c: PRAGMA UDF – the truth

Let’s check, why PRAGMA UDF makes execution faster, then regular function. C function responsible for calling a PL/SQL code from SQL is called "plsql_run": Now let’s try to create a new HR session and create a simple function which will multiple values by 2: From other terminal I will connect to the HR session with […]

Jak smakuje Browar z Wyrocznią

I było tak, że 31 dnia miesiąca sierpnia roku 2015, spotkali się entuzjaści Wyroczni w posiadłości AVIVA. I było tak, że dzierżąc kufle – po brzegi browarem wypełnione – zasiadło wielu aby posłuchać kilku, którzy chcieli się przemyśleniami swoimi podzielić. I stało się tak, że admin przepijał do dewelopera a deweloper do admina i pospołu dyskusja toczyła się wartka a […]

12c – SQL plan directives

One of the new CBO features in database 12c is "sql plan directives". The main purpose of this functionality is to deliver better adaptive plans if object statistics does not reflect the reality. Quoting after documentation During SQL execution, if a cardinality misestimate occurs, then the database creates SQL plan directives. During SQL compilation, the […]
