The Statspack for PostgreSQL — Meet Pgstatspack

Sat, 31 May 2008 07:11:23 +0000

Frits Hoogland came up with a very interesting project — Pgstatspack. What can be better than a Statspack-like tool an Oracle DBA in the PostgreSQL world? Heh… right — only PostgreSQL Wait Interface. 😉 Oh well, Pgstatspack is a good start. Well done Frits!

SQL Server Performance Diagnostic — Still Guessing?

Sat, 24 May 2008 01:17:24 +0000

Well, the guess-days might be just about over for SQL Server DBA’s. People who revolutionized Oracle performance tuning several years ago, are now working at SQL Server revolution. Look what Anjo Kolk had to say about at the interview during Miracle SQL Server Open World 2008: And here is Cary Millsap from the same event: […]

There, you can leave your comments and questions about ASH and ASHMON, the tool designed after Performance page of Oracle 10g Enterprise Manager. Kyle Hailey is the one who designed this performance screen in Oracle 10g Enterprise Manager and ASH […]

BAAG Members page change

Wed, 26 Mar 2008 06:59:02 +0000

This is just a bit of administrative information. I have changed BAAG Comrades page. I removed the member numbers. Two reasons — (1) I have introduced moderation of registration a while ago and I daily discard spam and need to adjust sequence and do some updates after that and (2) numbers are not important — […]

Avoiding Guesswork in Complex Environments

Mon, 24 Mar 2008 05:13:53 +0000

One of the main reasons why it’s difficult to troubleshoot problems in complex environments is lack of documentation. This post is long overdue because it was inspired a while ago by Dan Fink’s post (again). Be sure to read it first. From time to time, I see situations when one person leaving the company leads […]

Can a Performance Tuning Tool be Complete?

Sun, 17 Feb 2008 01:44:06 +0000

Earlier this week I’ve attended RMOUG Training Days 2008 and one of the sessions was of particular interest. Mogens initiated very heated discussion about performance tuning methods that are currently in use and how inappropriate they all are because they still leave some chance for guesswork. No doubts that performance optimization has involved significantly in […]

RTFM – stuff you never wanted to know about reading the manual!

Tue, 03 Jul 2007 20:52:29 +0000

Working mainly with App Server these days, I’ve read a manual or two… I’ve even bought them (my Oracle7 manual set takes about an arm’s worth of bookshelf and almost cost a leg too). This all changed in 1997 when I loaded the entire database documentation set onto my new toy at the time, a […]

Missing the point.

Fri, 29 Jun 2007 16:39:33 +0000

One of the great problems with guesswork is that you can be led down some very blind alleys indeed. This commonly occurs when you guess what the problem is, rather than diagnose it, and then embark upon a solution. Every time you find yourself doing this think of Miriam.

BAAG is born

Sat, 16 Jun 2007 23:05:16 +0000

Today is Saturday, 16th of June 2007 and is the birthday of… (drum-roll please…) …BAAG – Battle Against Any Guess. This idea was sitting in my head for a while and finally materialized here. “Enough is enough” trigger was this Oracle-L thread followed by couple emails from Tanel Poder and David Kurtz. While replying to […]
