how to import a big mysql database backup in phpmyadmin

The first things to check (or ask your host provider to check) are the values of upload_max_filesizememory_limit and post_max_size in the php.ini configuration file. All of these three settings limit the maximum size of data that can be submitted and handled by PHP. One user also said that post_max_size and memory_limit need to be larger than upload_max_filesize.

temporary tablespace in ramfs

One good article : http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2008/11/overview-of-ramfs-and-tmpfs-on-linux/

The idea is to user your RAM in order to put there the temporary tablespace ( I suppose you have a box with a lot of GB for RAM ).

Sometimes , your database could have a bottleneck in your temporary tablespace ( in case of large sorts ) .
RAMFS is  a good filesystem which resides in your RAM memory. This means that the data in RAMFS get lost forever when there is a electrical problem  and your server is restarted or stopped .

This is not such a big problem in our case, because in OracleDB,  temporary tablespace  does not contain persistent information and is not subject to the recovery mechanism .

Read and write in your ramfs filesystem will be very fast.
In case your server is restarted, we can switch to the old temporary tablespace ( alter database default temporary tablespace temp; )

As root:

mkdir /ramfs
mount -t ramfs -o size=500m ramfs /ramfs

In your oracle database ( as user sys or system ) :
create temporary tablespace temp_ramfs tempfile '/ramfs/temp_ramfs.dbf' size 10M autoextend on next 10M maxsize 32G;

alter database default temporary tablespace temp_volatil ;


how to resolve a hang in database

Starting from 11g, there is a welcome change though – there’s a new V$WAIT_CHAINS view, which lists all the hangs it has detected, it’s RAC-aware and is accessible via plain SQL. No need to run oradebug anymore, assuming that you are able to log on to query that V$ view :-)

netapp cifs: file is in use by another user

BUG 530748 http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=530748

 While editing a file, Microsoft office 2007 writes the content to a temporary 
 file and renames the temporary file to the original file name while saving. 
 When this happens the file's create time stamp will reflect the create 
 time stamp of the temproary file which would be different from the original 
 create time of the file. So after this happens, windows client will have to 
 send a CIFS request to restore the create time stamp to the original value. 
 However, this request will be sent only when the share permission is set to
 full control. In all other cases the create time will have the modified time.

Solutions :
1. Change the share permission to full control.
2. Upgrade to Office 2010.

Another workaround 
Increase  CIFS Max Multiplex
