solution for rmcup

LESS="-X"
export LESS





Many terminals, such as xterm, support a feature known as rmcup. It
restores the screen to what it looked like before a program was run. The situation
also occurs with any full-screen terminal program, such as man or less; the
program’s text disappears after you quit the program, and the prompt
“window” is restored http://blogs.oracle.com/samf/entry/smcup_rmcup_hate

SSD for oracle databases

http://www.pythian.com/news/28797/de-confusing-ssd-for-oracle-databases/

* Placing redo logs on SSD is not recommended. Exadata now has a “Smart Flash Logging” feature that uses redo logs on SSD. Note that it uses redo logs *also* on SSD. This feature allows Oracle to write redo in parallel to a file on SSD and a file on the magnetic disk, and finish the operation when one of the calls is successful. This is a no-lose situation that can only improve performance. This is not the case if you place your redo logs on both SSD and magnetic disks yourself, in which case the redo write will finish when the slowest device finishes writing, making it a no-win situation.

Direct NFS: please check that oradism is setuid

check also : http://dbamohsin.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/direct-nfs/

from note Direct NFS: FAQ [ID 954425.1]

What is oradism? When is it used by Direct NFS?

Direct NFS client uses oradism executable to perform functions that require root privileges. oradism is configured by default on a single instance and for RAC if not using shared $ORACLE_HOME.

It is used for the following special purposes:
Direct NFS client needs root privileges to start communication with the NFS filer. It uses oradism to obtain the root file handle for the exported volume and the NFS server port and NFS mount port. Once the root handle and port information is obtained, all future communication is issued by Oracle user processes using normal privileges.

Oradism executable need always to be owned by root otherwise instance will not come up and returns the error:
Direct NFS: please check that oradism is setuid

You could also try :  chown oracle:oinstall oradism    and chmod 4755 oradism

Also, you could try :  chown root:oinstall oradism      and chmod 4755 oradism

how to send attachment from linux coomand line

A very good article : http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/sending-mail-with-attachment.html

You must have mutt installed
Use mutt command as follows to send an email with attachment:
$ mutt -s "Test mail" -a /tmp/file.tar.gz vivek@nixcraft.co.in < /tmp/mailmessage.txt
Where,
  • vivek@nixcraft.co.in - is the recipient
  • /tmp/mailmessage.txt - is the main body of the e-mail (read message from the file "mailmessage.txt")
  • /tmp/file.tar.gz - is an attachment (with option -a)
  • "Test mail" - is a subject line (option -s)

Another way is to use uuencode and mail ... but uuencode takes more time .

how to copy statistics between partitions

When dealing with partitioned tables the Optimizer relies on both the statistics for the entire table (global statistics) as well as the statistics for the individual partitions (partition statistics) to select a good execution plan for a SQL statement. If the query needs to access only a single partition, the Optimizer uses only the statistics of the accessed partition. If the query access more than one partition, it uses a combination of global and partition statistics.
It is very common with range partitioned tables to have a new partition added to an existing table, and rows inserted into just that partition. If end-users start to query the newly inserted data before statistics have been gathered, it is possible to get a suboptimal execution plan due to stale statistics. One of the most common cases occurs when the value supplied in a where clause predicate is outside the domain of values represented by the [minimum, maximum] column statistics. This is known as an „out-of-range‟ error. In this case, the Optimizer prorates the selectivity based on the distance between the predicate value, and the maximum value (assuming the value is higher than the max), that is, the farther the value is from the maximum or minimum value, the lower the selectivity will be.
The "Out of Range" condition can be prevented by using the DBMS_STATS.COPY_TABLE_STATS procedure (available from Oracle Database 10.2.0.4 onwards). This procedure copies the statistics of a representative source [sub] partition to the newly created and empty destination [sub] partition. It also copies the statistics of the dependent objects: columns, local (partitioned) indexes, etc. The minimum and maximum values of the partitioning column are adjusted as follows;


It can also scale the statistics (such as the number of blocks, or number of rows) based on the given scale_factor. The following command copies the statistics from SALES_Q3_2011 range partition to the SALES_Q4_2011 partition of the SALES table and scales the basic statistics by a factor of 2.
BEGIN
DBMS_STATS.COPY_TABLE_STATS('SH','SALES','SALES_Q3_2002','SALES_Q4_2002', 2);
END;
/

how to compare statistics

One of the key reasons an execution plan can differ from one system to another is because the Optimizer statistics on each system are different, for example when data on a test system is not 100% in sync with real production system. To identify differences in statistics, the DBMS_STATS.DIFF_TABLE_STATS_* functions can be used to compare statistics for a table from two different sources.

In the example below, we compare the current dictionary statistics for the EMP table with the statistics for EMP in the statistics table TAB1; the SQL statement will generate a report .

SELECT report, maxdiffpct
FROM table(DBMS_STATS.DIFF_TABLE_STATS_IN_STATTAB(‘SCOTT’,’EMP’,’TAB1’ ));

oracle statistics

http://www.oracle.com/ocom/groups/public/@otn/documents/webcontent/1354477.pdf

Oracle Database 11g introduced a new sampling algorithm that is hash based and provides deterministic statistics. This new approach has the accuracy close to a 100% sample but with the cost of, at most, a 10% sample. The new algorithm is used when ESTIMATE_PERCENT is set to AUTO_SAMPLE_SIZE (the default)

It is highly recommended that from Oracle Database 11g onward you let ESTIMATE_PRECENT default.

The METHOD_OPT parameter controls the creation of histograms during statistics collection. Histograms are a special type of column statistic created when the data in a table column has a non-uniform distribution.

A unique column will not have a histogram created on it if it is only seen in equality predicates.

rollback segment needs recovery

In case there are some problems ( incomple or unfininshed recovery, media error ) , youo probably have a rollback segment that is in the state  needs recovery .

In this case, the best way is to follow this link : http://www.runningoracle.com/product_info.php?products_id=283  .

Put the following event
event="10015 trace name context forever, level 10"
 Find the rollback segment that is corrupted ( eg _SYSSMU6$ )  and put it offline in the init parameter file.
_offline_rollback_segments=_SYSSMU6$
 
You can also see if there is an active transaction in your database (see note 1291009.1)
 
SELECT KTUXEUSN, KTUXESLT, KTUXESQN, /* Transaction ID */
              KTUXESTA Status,
              KTUXECFL Flags
               FROM x$ktuxe
     WHERE ktuxesta!='INACTIVE' ;

do not put redo logs on SSD disks

Oracle’s redo log is a frequent source of intensive IO and, by design, Oracle sessions will normally wait for
redo log IO to complete. However, the nature of redo log IO operations is essentially optimal for magnetic
disk but least suitable for solid state disk. Redo log IO consists almost entirely of sequential write operations,
which are the worst case for solid state disk and the best case for magnetic spinning disk. Placing
redo logs on solid state disk is generally not recommended

When IO bottlenecks are limited to specific segments (tables, partitions, or indexes) then relocating those
segments to solid state disk will almost always be effective in optimizing IO to those segments, regardless of
the type of IO to which the segments are subjected

you don't need RAC

a very good white paper http://www.my-idconcept.de/downloads/You_Probably_Dont_Need_RAC.pdf

One way of looking at availability is this: If you have a standalone Unix box it will
usually give you 99.9% availability over a year (some say 99.5, some say 99.9). It just runs. And so does Oracle usually. If you have a two-node Unix cluster the availability over a year drops to 98%.

If you need to cover your behind politically in your organisation, you can choose to buy clusters, Oracle, RAC and what have you, and then you can safely say: “We’ve bought the most expensive equipment known to man. It cannot possibly be our fault if something goes wrong or the system goes down”.
Otherwise, you probably don’t need RAC. Alternatives will usually be cheaper , easier to manage and quite sufficient.

directio and NFS

Potential Lost Writes: RAC on NAS using NFS may not use DIRECTIO or HP on NFS [ID 566545.1]

Symptoms
  • When RAC is used, O_DIRECT is the default option to open files in NFS.  However, there are some cases where O_DIRECT is not used and the database may lose a write.  For this case the NFS mount point options are in accordance with Note 359515.1
  • There is another case that is specific to HP when NFS is used without the forcedirectio IO option where the database may end up losing IO.
  •  Lost IO may cause different errors like:
ORA-600 [4193]
ORA-600 [4194]
ORA-600 [4137]
ORA-600 [3020] in a media recovery
ORA-600 [kccchb_3]
ORA-600 [kdsgrp1]
ORA-600 [qertbFetchByRowID]
ORA-600 [kcbz_check_objd_typ_3]
ORA-1499 on "analyze table validate structure cascade"
ORA-8102 on delete/update
  • Some of these errors are signs of logical corruptions on undo segments, redo log files and inconsistencies between tables and indexes.

Cause

  • There are some cases where O_DIRECT is not used in RAC environment due to unpublished bug 5856342.  Without this fix in a RAC environment using NFS the database may lose a write unless DIRECTIO is explicitly specified.
@ See Bug 7006179

  • There is another case that is HP specific where Oracle does not check for forcedirectio in the mount options due to Bug 6922729.  See Note 6922729.8

Solution

  • For Bug 5856342 in order to prevent this issue install an Oracle RDBMS version greater than 10.2.0.3 or specify DIRECTIO in the database parameter file like:
filesystemio_options=DIRECTIO or SETALL
  • For Bug 6922729 (HP specific) install an one off patch for it or specify forcedirectio in the mount options for Oracle Files.  See Note 6922729.8

Oracle GoldenGate how to

Unlike Active Data Guard, GoldenGate captures primary database changes by reading redo records from disk, transforming those records into a platform independent trail file format, and transmitting the trail file to the target database. GoldenGate maintains a logical replica by converting the trail file into SQL and applying SQL to the target database. The target database is open read-write while synchronization occurs.  While this provides substantial flexibility as a replication solution when compared to Data Guard, care must be taken to insure that the target database is not modified independent of the source, unless it is explicitly desired to do so.

you don't need RAC

http://www.my-idconcept.de/downloads/You_Probably_Dont_Need_RAC.pdf
RAC is very cool technology. But it’s expensive.
So let’s play around with Larry’s vision of cheap Intel-based Linux clusters. Let’s buy those two cheap, 4-cpu Intel boxes and put them together in a cluster with Oracle9i and RAC on top:
Price for the hardware: About US$15.000,- or so .
Price for the OS (Linux): About US$0.50,- or thereabout (it depends!)
Price for Oracle w/ RAC: US$480.000,-

So that’s half a million to Oracle. Put another way: It’s 1 dollar to the box movers for every 32 dollars Oracle gets.
Psychologically it’s hard for the customers to understand that they have to buy something that expensive to run on such cheap hardware. The gap is too big, and Oracle will need to address it soon.

There’s nothing like RAC on the market, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy RAC. I usually joke that it’s like buying a car for US$10.000,- that has all the facilities you need from a good and stable car. Airbags and ABS brakes are US$500.000,- extra, by the way. Well, airbags and ABS are wonderful to have and
they increase your security. But it’s a lot of money compared to the basic car price.

slow datapump export in 10.2.0.4

Export Slow After Applying 10.2.0.4 Patchset On Top Of 10.2.0.3 [ID 783835.1]

Symptoms

Export is slow after applying patchset 10.2.0.4.0 on top of 10.2.0.3.

An export (exp) that previously took approximately 8 hours now takes 2 days after applying the patchset 10.2.0.4.0.

Cause

The cause of slow performance is incorrect statistics.

You have to narrow down where the possible bottlenecks are by tracing the exp process:

-- Determine SPID of export process
select distinct (p.spid), s.sid, s.serial#
from   v$process p, v$session s, v$mystat m
where  s.PADDR = p.ADDR and lower (s.program) like '%exp%';

-- connect to the process as sysdba
connect / as sysdba
oradebug setospid xxxx <-- use SPID here
oradebug unlimit

-- Create process state dumps
oradebug dump errorstack 3
... wait 30 seconds
oradebug dump errorstack 3
... wait 30 seconds
oradebug dump errorstack 3

This generates a trace file in your user_dump_dest (from sqlplus: show parameter user_dump_dest).

When reviewing the file you saw the following:

Current SQL statement for this session:
SELECT CNO, CNAME, TYPE, CONDITION, CONDLENGTH, ENABLED, DEFER, INAME, IDXSYSGEND FROM SYS.EXU8CON WHERE OBJID = :1 AND TYPE IN (1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17) ORDER BY CNO
Also, from the RDA, the AWR report seems to indicate that there is a lot of CPU time spent on
querying constraints.  Specifically, the following query:

SELECT CNO, CNAME, TYPE, CONDITION, CONDLENGTH, ENABLED, DEFER, INAME, IDXSYSGEND FROM SYS.EXU8CON WHERE OBJID = :1 AND TYPE IN (1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17) ORDER BY CNO
You can use the trace file generated from the "oradebug dump errorstack 3" to get the bind variable for the above query.  Search the trace file for "Current cursor": Current cursor: 57, pgadep: 0 ...and then search on "Cursor#57"

Bind#0
oacdty=02 mxl=22(22) mxlc=00 mal=00 scl=00 pre=00
oacflg=00 fl2=1000000 frm=00 csi=00 siz=24 off=0
kxsbbbfp=800003ffefcf2ec0 bln=22 avl=04 flg=05
value=535520 <---- This is your Bind Variable's value.

Now you can determine how long it is taking to complete that query:

SQL> set pages 1000 lines 132
SQL> set autotrace on
SQL> SELECT CNO, CNAME, TYPE, CONDITION, CONDLENGTH, ENABLED, DEFER, INAME, IDXSYSGEND FROM SYS.EXU8CON WHERE OBJID = 535520 AND TYPE IN (1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17) ORDER BY CNO ;

That should tell you how long it takes to to complete that query.

Solution

Workarounds:

1.  Export with constraints=n

filesystemio_options and disk_asynch_io

What do filesystemio_options and disk_asynch_io Do?

disk_asynch_io is a kind of master switch, which turns on or off Async I/O to database files on any type of storage, whether it's raw device or filesystem. The filesystemio_options parameter gives finer control over I/O to database files on filesystems. It allows you to turn off async I/O to filesystem files but keep async I/O to raw devices if the "master" switch disk_asynch_io is set to true.

Instance initialization parameter filesystemio_options has four options:
1. "asynch" : means buffered I/O + Async I/O
2. "directIO" : means Direct I/O only
3. "setall" : means Direct I/O + Async I/O
4. "none" : disables Async I/O and Direct I/O

One should always use at least Direct I/O with OCFS/OCFS2. In fact one does not have choice as the database automatically adds that mode whenever it sees the file is on an OCFS volume or OCFS2 volume mounted with the datavolume mount option.
If the user wants aio with OCFS/OCFS2, use setall.
If the user wants aio with ASM/ASMlib, he is expected to set disk_asynch_io=true, this is because ASM bypasses the filesystem layer in this case and ASM I/O is entirely controlled by DISK_ASYNCH_IO parameter. AIO needs to be enabled/disabled by setting disk_asynch_io to parameter values TRUE/FALSE, please see Note 413389.1 .

From our past experience, we have noted that 11.2 install/upgrade hangs at "Check: Time zone consistency" if user installing Grid Infrastructure has entered an interactive shell in the profile script.
Please check the profile script for the O/S user oracle or grid for anything interactive and disable it.

If you are unsure about anything interactive then please upload the login shell profile for O/S user oracle or grid and we will check it.
Problem was solved by commenting the 'IF' statement and the 'bash' command in file '.profile'. Thanks! You may close the SR.

Follow these steps for each middle-tier instance on your host. Be sure to complete the steps entirely for one middle-tier instance before you move on to the next.
  1. Log in to the host as the user that installed the middle-tier instance.
  2. Make sure your ORACLE_HOME environment variable is set to the middle-tier Oracle home. Do not use a trailing slash (UNIX) or backslash (Windows) when specifying the variable.
  3. On UNIX systems, set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64, LIB_PATH, or SHLIB_PATH environment variables to the proper values. The actual environment variables and values that you must set depend on the type of your UNIX operating system.
  4. Run the following commands in the middle-tier Oracle home:
    • On UNIX systems:
      cd ORACLE_HOME/chgip/scripts
      ./chgiphost.sh -mid
      
      
    • On Windows systems:

bind peeking in Oracle Siebel

Siebel Bind peeking performance degradation future enhancement [ID 1273535.1]

_optim_peek_user_binds

A very good article about bind peeking in Oracle Database 10G : http://www.pythian.com/news/867/stabilize-oracle-10gs-bind-peeking-behaviour-by-cutting-histograms/

exec dbms_scheduler.disable('SYS.GATHER_STATS_JOB');

here are three things that might put you at risk of unstable plans due to bind variable peeking. Those are histograms, partitions, and range-based predicates.

histograms and bind variable peeking can cause an unstable plan.

In 10G, bind variable peeking happens only on a hard parse, which means that all following executions will use the same plan, regardless of the bind variable value.

It might be a good idea to wipe out all histograms in a database (gather your stats with FOR ALL COLUMNS SIZE 1 clause), and manually add them when you decide that you really need one.

faster index creation

A good article : http://iggyfernandez.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/take-that-exadata-fast-index-creation-using-noparallel/

Leverage the Oracle cache! This is one case where “direct path reads” and parallelism hurt instead of helping. The trick is to use NOPARALLEL so that data is loaded into shared memory using “db file scattered reads”—instead of being loaded into private memory using direct path reads—and to run multiple CREATE INDEX statements simultaneously. In the words of David Aldridge, you’ll get “get 1 index creation process performing the physical reads and the other 9 (for example) processes greedily waiting for the blocks to load into the buffer.”

rman with VTL deduplication

http://www.backupcentral.com/phpBB2/two-way-mirrors-of-external-mailing-lists-3/ibm-tsm-13/data-deduplication-60390/

According to Dilligent, when RMAN uses Multiplexing, it intermingles the
data from each RMAN so the data block will be different every time so the
blocks are different, similar to Multiplexing with Netbackup

1) Do the best you can to put like data together. (ie all Oracle
DB Backups go to the same de-dupe VirtualTape head (Repository),

2) Turn off all compression (Client and DB's)

3) Oracle Specific
Do not use RMAN's Multiplexing in RMAN will combine 4
Channels together and the backup data then will be unique every time thus
not allowing for de-duping)
Use the File Seq=1 (Then run multiple channels)

4) Do not Mix Windows and Unix data, It wont de-dupe well.

a new feature of 11G: direct read in case of a table bigger than %2 of buffer cache

An excellent article : http://coskan.wordpress.com/2011/06/24/plan-is-same-wait-profile-is-different/

"From the ouput above, you can see PRD database is doing direct path reads and QA database is using db_file_scattered reads and PRD is 3 times slower for each run. Somehow oracle favours doing 11G direct path implementation for full table scan (Links for direct path Doug Burns,Alex Fatkulin, Dion Cho ) on PROD. If you read the links you can see that this has to do something with the memory the buffer cache and small table threshold (for more information about this threshold Charles Hooper-great discussion with Jonathan Lewis on comments, Tanel Poder )."

There have been changes in 11g in the heuristics to choose between direct path reads or reads through buffer cache for serial table scans.
In 10g, serial table scans for "large" tables used to go through cache (by default) which is not the case anymore in 11g (where this decision to read via direct path or through cache is based on various stats).

"De multe ori, banii costa prea mult"

a bug of JDBC 10.2 with JDK 1.5

original link : http://marist89.blogspot.com/2008/12/bug-part-ii.html
Oracle (the database software) let a bad piece of data in. Oracle says the client should type the data when binding. I agree. But I also think that the server shouldn't let non-numeric data into numeric columns, regardless. I contend that this is a bug on the server side as well as a bug on the client side. This is only one specific case of a Java program inserting bad data.

ORA-3136 WARNING: inbound connection timed out

A possible cause may be SGA latch contention 
The theory is that while the shared_pool was being re-sized in the SGA, Oracle grabbed a latch. The memory resize operation took a while and while Oracle held that latch, nobody could login.

consum

"Concluzia e trista- consumam din ce in ce mai mult, mai ales lucruri de care nu avem nevoie. In urma cu ceva vreme o prietena imi spunea urmatoarele: cu cat castigi mai mult, cu atat consumi mai mult si nevoile iti cresc. Si in ciuda eforturilor noastre, intotdeauna va exista ceva mai bun decat ceea ce avem noi, cel putin cand vine vorba de partea materiala.
Mersul la cumparaturi a devenit si la noi o modalitate de distractie, de a scapa de stres, de nervi, de a depasi depresii etc. De abia imi mai aduc aminte timpurile in care mergeam la cumparaturi fiindca aveam nevoie de ceva: ghete noi deoarece perechea veche imi ramasese mica, un tricou nou pentru a-l inlocui pe cel agatat etc. Bineinteles, pe atunci eram copil iar hainele nu valorau prea mult in mintea mea. Acum, am nevoie costume pentru munca dar si de tinute pentru timpul liber. Citeam pe undeva ca astazi purtam, in medie, de patru ori mai multe haine decat se purtau acum 25-30 de ani. Cumparam mai mult si mai prost, nu in sensul de calitate si pret, ci de armonizare cu venitul si posibilitatile noastre.

This procedure is used in capacity planning to determine the size of the table given various attributes. The size of the object can vary widely based on the tablespace storage attributes, tablespace block size, and so on. There are two overloads of this procedure.
·         The first version takes the column information of the table as argument and outputs the table size.
·         The second version takes the average row size of the table as argument and outputs the table size.
