I've found a few bits of interesting reading over the past week or two. Most of this content is not brand-new, but since they've added some technical enrichment to my life, I figured that a "shout-out rollup" was appropriate.
- Jonathan Lewis' review of a Collaborate '09 presentation on tuning by cardinality feedback, and the slides from that presentation, helped me refresh my approach to a report tuning exercise.
- Kerry Osborne saved my sanity with an 18-month old post, as I tried to figure out why a 'shared server idle wait event' was skewing my 11g Statspack reports.
- Ever wondered what the translations are for the command_type column in V$SQL? Martin Widlake offers a few pointers to get that info, in not one, but two posts.
- Finally, if you're interested in some real-world information about using Oracle E-Business Suite on VMware (and who isn't, really?), J Weinshenker (Twitter: @aus_effendi) has recently spun up a blog about those topics and others of interest to ORACLENERDs of the DBA/Apps DBA variety. Quality content there; go read!
