Oracle Retail’s Merchandising Solutions Bring World-Class Capabilities to Charming Charlie

Oracle Database News - Fri, 07/31/2015 - 23:13
Press Release Oracle Retail’s Merchandising Solutions Bring World-Class Capabilities to Charming Charlie

Redwood Shores Calif—Jul 31, 2015

When consumer demand for the latest trends surges, fashion retailers must move quickly to engage with shoppers and ensure they have the right product mix on the shelves. Women’s contemporary jewelry and accessory retailer Charming Charlie, known for carrying a wide array of accessible fashion accessories merchandised by color, has met widespread consumer demand with aggressive growth and a timely upgrade to Oracle Retail Merchandising solutions that supports both its immediate needs and its international expansion plans.   Opening an average of 55 stores annually, it’s easy to see why growth was stretching the retailer’s previous IT systems.  Founded in 2004, Charming Charlie now has over 350 locations across the U.S., Canada and Dubai. The company debuted a 16,000-square-foot New York City Charming Charlie flagship store in June 2015 and is poised for further domestic and international expansion in the coming months.   Along the way, growth outpaced its IT systems and Charming Charlie launched an initiative that would establish scalable, modern retail operations on new Oracle Retail systems.    “With the complexity of a lot of product SKUs, ongoing store openings, and international expansion, we needed a technology foundation from Oracle Retail that would be able to grow with us,” said John Hnanicek, Chief Information Officer, Charming Charlie.   Over a 13-month period beginning in late 2013, with the help of systems integrator and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, OLR, Charming Charlie implemented Oracle Retail Merchandising System, Oracle Retail Trade Management, Oracle Retail Price Management, Oracle Retail Invoice Match, and Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management.  The integrated Oracle Retail systems support best-in-class operations across critical areas such as inventory management, sales forecasting, and pricing/markdown management.   Charming Charlie was already using Oracle E-Business Suite Financials, and the Oracle Retail Merchandising solutions are integrated with this and an array of in-house systems, which increases the speed at which informed decisions can be made.   Charming Charlie Streamlines Merchandising and Pricing   In addition to helping drive both U.S. and international growth, the Oracle Retail solutions provide world-class retailing capabilities. By employing Oracle’s industry best practices on merchandise hierarchy setup and price management, Charming Charlie is gaining operational efficiencies. The Oracle Retail solutions automate and streamline pricing strategy execution, adding the ability to set regional pricing and meet competitive pricing targets, and they simplify key operational processes such as reclass and markdowns.   “By implementing Oracle Retail, Charming Charlie has an operations platform to drive growth and facilitate quick-turn response to new market opportunities,” said Jill Puleri, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. “Oracle is committed to providing retailers with the right mix of solutions, global support and best practices to deliver commerce anywhere and drive profitability.”   Contact Info Greg Lunsford

DX Marketing Selects Oracle Cloud as the Foundation for its Data-Driven Marketing Platform

Oracle Database News - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 19:52
Press Release DX Marketing Selects Oracle Cloud as the Foundation for its Data-Driven Marketing Platform Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Marketing Cloud help firm reduce time to market by up to 70 percent

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 30, 2015

To build a new environment for its direct marketing solutions in a limited time frame while maximizing ROI for its customers, DX Marketing, one of the country’s most comprehensive data-driven marketing firms, has selected Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Marketing Cloud Service.

Faced with the challenge of identifying valuable consumer data, from hundreds of millions of records, for customer acquisition programs, DX Marketing’s IT department decided to replace its on premises computing platform. For its new solution, DX Marketing sought to reduce risk and infrastructure costs; adopt innovative database features to help improve time-to-market; and scale fluidly in order to meet expanding customer demand. With Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Marketing Cloud Service, DX Marketing has achieved their goals and been able to take advantage of greater performance, security and scalability compared to its previous computing environment.

“We realized that our existing environment was straining our resources and not providing the kind of performance we needed to meet and exceed customer demand,” said Ray Owens, CEO, DX Marketing. “With our Oracle Cloud solution, we have been astounded at how fast and effectively we can get to market and that is a huge differentiator that helps us deliver ROI to our customers. Oracle’s multitenant and advanced analytics capabilities are enabling us to provide breakthrough solutions, and allow us to capitalize on business opportunities that can create new revenue streams. This was not possible with our prior solution.”

DX Marketing was up and running with its Oracle Cloud environment in less than three weeks, compared to the four months the company had expected, by leveraging Oracle’s resources and on-boarding support, which was paramount in DX Marketing selecting Oracle. Oracle Database Cloud Service has enabled the company to decrease time to market for customer campaigns by up to 70 percent through fast, easy database provisioning and pluggable database capabilities. Oracle Marketing Cloud has enabled the unmatched melding of online and offline data and analytics. The Oracle solution also enabled DX Marketing to automate administrative tasks and customize the environment; connect data across its clients’ marketing ecosystems to their individual customers to orchestrate a relevant experience; analyze the performance of their efforts; and implement security policies that align with business best practices.

“In the marketing industry, the sheer amount of data that organizations need to manage and glean insights from can be overwhelming,” said Jerry Gearding, Director of Marketing Analytics,  DX Marketing. “With Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Marketing Cloud Service, DX Marketing was able to take a slower and more constricting environment and quickly and easily move to a modern, agile cloud solution. As a result, DX Marketing now has the high performance, scalability availability and security it needs to respond to ever-increasing data demands and can provide our customers with unparalleled solutions.”

Oracle offers general purpose and high memory compute shapes to provide the full power of the Oracle Database in the cloud for any type of application. Oracle Database Cloud is part of the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, and business users to build, extend and integrate cloud applications.

Oracle Gets Docker in the Zone with Oracle Solaris

Oracle Database News - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 16:45
Press Release Oracle Gets Docker in the Zone with Oracle Solaris Oracle to Integrate Docker Into Oracle Solaris Zones and Provide an Enterprise Class DevOps Solution

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 30, 2015

Oracle is making significant moves to drive Oracle Solaris into cloud environments. After including a full distribution of OpenStack in Oracle Solaris 11.2 last year, the company today announced plans to integrate Docker into Oracle Solaris. The integration will allow enterprise customers to use the Docker open platform to easily distribute applications built and deployed in Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris’ built-in virtualization technology. Oracle also plans to make software including Oracle WebLogic Server available for development and testing as Docker images.

Solaris pioneered container technology more than 10 years ago as Solaris Containers. Now known as Oracle Solaris Zones, a majority of Oracle Solaris customers use the technology for its industry-leading scalability and efficiency, as well as comprehensive resource and security isolation, which is critical for enterprise class environments. Oracle Solaris Zones are also widely recognized as license boundaries for most enterprise applications, allowing customers to significantly lower costs.

“Oracle Solaris Zones make moving to hybrid cloud environments secure and simple with no virtualization overhead or expense,” said Markus Flierl, vice president, Oracle Solaris Core Technology. “Today’s announcement really gives developers the best of both worlds – access to Oracle Solaris’ enterprise class security, resource isolation and superior analytics with the ability to easily create containers in dev/test, production and cloud environments. Integrating Docker into Oracle Solaris will make that even easier and will help customers benefit from highly integrated compute on premises and in the cloud.”

“Docker welcomes Oracle Solaris to the Docker community. Integrating Docker with Oracle Solaris Zones will bring a mature and proven container technology to Docker environments running in enterprise class clouds,” said Nick Stinemates, vice president of Business Development & Technical Alliances for Docker.

“As enterprises have increasingly adopted cloud technologies over the last few years, collaboration between development and operations has become a business imperative,” said  Laurent Lachal, Senior Analyst, Infrastructure Solutions, Ovum.  “Oracle’s move to integrate Docker into Oracle Solaris is a win-win proposition. Cloud developers can take advantage of Oracle Solaris’ full OpenStack distribution, built-in security capabilities and easily migrate workloads across a broader choice of platforms.”

Oracle also recently released the beta for Oracle Solaris 11.3, which includes several new Oracle Solaris Zones features such as secure live migration, live reconfiguration and verified boot for Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones.  Download the Oracle Solaris 11.3 beta from Oracle Technology Network.

National Pen Drives International Expansion with Oracle

Oracle Database News - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 13:00
Press Release National Pen Drives International Expansion with Oracle Personalization, targeted content and analytics help National Pen fuel 20 percent annual growth online

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 30, 2015

Personalization is built into the DNA of direct marketer National Pen, which supplies 1.2 million small business customers worldwide with customized, branded products. National Pen is using Oracle solutions to serve a growing community of international customers, enabling companies of all sizes to customize consumer and business-to-business (B2B) marketing campaigns.

“Oracle solutions have been critical to the company’s rapid expansion,” said Dave Thompson, chief executive officer and president, National Pen. “Oracle Commerce and Oracle Marketing Cloud are the cornerstones of our workflow throughout the organization and have enabled us to achieve true e-commerce excellence as a business.”

National Pen first implemented the Oracle Commerce solution in 2011 to support its strategy of extending its business offering and market reach with a world-class e-commerce channel.

National Pen has grown its e-commerce business 20 percent year over year, accompanied by a strong bottom line, since launching its e-commerce business using Oracle Commerce solutions. The company has continued to upgrade its Oracle Commerce platform to help drive international growth and steadily expand its product and service offerings online.

The result is a lot of net new business. National Pen’s e-commerce customers’ average order sizes are 20 percent larger than direct mail orders and retention rates are higher. In addition, 65 percent of these online buyers are outside the company’s typical profile of direct mail customers, fostering a new customer growth rate at National Pen that the company expects will significantly increase business this year.  

“We’re a global business that acts in a very localized manner, no matter where the customer may be,” said Thompson. “We’ll create nearly 400,000 new customers this year alone.”

Oracle Commerce, used by a team of e-commerce experts at the company’s San Diego headquarters, has also improved National Pen’s speed to market. Launching a site that specifically targets accountants, for example, now takes just weeks instead of a few months.

In addition, National Pen can apply personalization and business logic to dynamically populate e-mail templates across the company’s 1.2 million-strong customer database. Using Oracle Marketing Cloud, National Pen can display different content based on whether the user is an attorney, an electrician, or a pizza restaurant.

Oracle Commerce solutions also provide National Pen with insight into the comparative effectiveness of its variable marketing spend. By increasing content relevance, National Pen is achieving a higher ROI by creating a more compelling landing page when a visitor arrives.

“National Pen started early with an Oracle Commerce platform that grew with the business and is serving them well in international markets,” said Jill Puleri, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. “Oracle continues to invest in sophisticated and user-friendly tools for localizing and personalizing the customer experience, while backing these solutions with extreme performance and scalability.”

In addition to its Oracle Commerce deployment, National Pen uses Oracle Marketing Cloud to personalize email outreach to customers and prospects. Since moving to the Oracle cloud solution, the company estimates it has more than tripled its “open rates” through automated emails, which helps increase revenues. The company also relies on Oracle E-Business Suite for its enterprise operations. 

“Oracle literally runs the entire business, including financials, inventory, manufacturing, and reporting,” said Thompson.

TekStream Streamlines Content Collaboration with Oracle Documents Cloud

Oracle Database News - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 21:34
Press Release TekStream Streamlines Content Collaboration with Oracle Documents Cloud Cuts Project Setup Costs by 30 Percent and Reduces Complexity with Oracle Cloud Platform

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 28, 2015

Oracle today announced that professional services firm and Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), TekStream Solutions, has adopted company-wide secure file sharing and content collaboration and reduced project setup costs by 30 percent using Oracle Documents Cloud Service.   For its consulting services, TekStream needed an efficient and scalable solution for accessing, sharing, and collaborating on documents with its consultants and customers. The firm wanted to be able to quickly and cost-effectively set up content collaboration instances to support new clients and IT projects, while safeguarding sensitive client content and providing superior version management, content segregation, and document accuracy.   “As a business consulting and technology implementation organization, we very carefully consider our IT purchases on behalf of both our company and the value they can deliver to our clients,” said Judd Robins, executive vice president, Consulting Services, TekStream Solutions. “Oracle Documents Cloud Service delivered the results we were looking for without adding complexity to our environment by introducing a new information silo. The service is intuitive, easy-to-use and highly scalable, and allows our consultants to share and access files anytime from anywhere, even on mobile devices, and drive effective project collaboration with our clients.”   Oracle Documents Cloud also supports document mobility, social collaboration and version control, which is designed to eliminate one-off emails that can increase inefficiency by causing confusion and errors. As a result, TekStream and its clients have been able to increase productivity and focus on revenue-generating initiatives.   By deploying Oracle Documents Cloud, TekStream was able to avoid the typical chaos around project management – 20 to 30 people collaborating over, on average, 30-50 documents often with multiple versions, and where the collaboration and document sharing is happening over a 1000+ emails going back and forth. With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, TekStream has already reduced project administration costs by 30 percent and accelerated client and project onboarding, reduced administrative overhead, and optimized the use of clients’ budgets for core projects. Both TekStream and its clients now have an easy-to-use, secure and flexible platform that enables them to share, access and store files quickly and set up file systems to meet their unique content collaboration needs, as well as integrate content with other applications as necessary.   Additionally, TekStream can now develop tailored security taxonomies for each instance of Oracle Documents Cloud. This helps ensure that all documents remain secure, and its enterprise file synch capabilities allow TekStream to efficiently and accurately manage dozens of documents and multiple versions for each IT services project. As a result of the implementation, TekStream now has a centralized repository for contracts, project workflows, IT architectures, and many other mission-critical documents securely segmented by client project.   Built for the enterprise with robust security, application and business process integrations, Oracle Documents Cloud enables users to easily store business content in the cloud, sync with enterprise content, access it securely from anywhere via desktop, web or mobile devices, and share and collaborate on it with colleagues, partners, and customers in real time. Oracle Documents Cloud is part of the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, and business users to build, extend and integrate cloud applications.   Contact Info Nicole Maloney

SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2.2 is available

The SQL Server engineering team is committed to SQL Server 2016 monthly public preview release rhythm. Following CTP 2.1 release last month, we are excited to announce the immediate availability of SQL Server 2016 CTP 2.2 release for download. This incremental release includes new capabilities for query store, stretch database, core engine, temporal, MDS, reporting services and engine scalability improvements. Learn about these improvements below.

The Stretch Database enables you dynamically stretch the cold transactional data to Azure SQL so your operational data is always at hand, no matter the size, and you can benefit from the low cost of using Azure. Improvements in this release include:

  • Row Level Security (RLS) enabled
  • Stretch Database Advisor now available to analyze existing database tables, discovering and evaluating candidates for stretch by adjustable table size thresholds
    • Bundled with SQL Server 2016 Upgrade Advisor Preview 1, Stretch Database Advisor is available for download here or through the Web Platform Installer

First released in SQL 2008 R2, the Master Data Services (MDS) is the SQL Server solution for master data management. We are making significant investments in SQL 2016 to advance strategic capabilities in the data management space. Improvements in this release include:

  • Sync entity between models allow you to setup sync relationship to sync entity from another model. Steps:
    1. Go to Admin, Sync Entity page
    2. Click Add
    3. Choose target model, version and entity, source model, version and entity
    4. Choose sync type to be on-demand or auto sync
    5. Click Save
  • SCD Type-2 support enables creation of SCD type-2 subscription view for Member transaction log type entities. Steps:
    1. Go to Admin, Entity page
    2. Choose transaction log type
    3. If transaction log type is Member, go to Integration, Create Views page
    4. Create a view of SCD Type-2 then History View can be chosen from format type
  • Compound Keys index support includes custom attributes to improve the performance or enforce constraints. NOTE: In this release Entity Based Staging batches need to start by calling stored procedures directly instead of using the web UI. Steps:
    1. Go to Admin, Entity page
    2. Click Add on Customer Indexes
    3. Choose the columns and click Save to create the index


The query “flight recorder,” Query Store, captures current and historical query plans and execution metrics, enabling you to easily monitor and troubleshoot query performance issues. Query Store has been made available since the first SQL 2016 community technical preview. Improvements in this release include:

  • Automatically switch to READ_ONLY mode when the reaches the defined max size limit and store collecting new query plans and run time stats. You will be able to detect that by looking at readonly_reason from sys.database_query_store_options. Value 65536 indicates when Query Store has reached the defined size limit.
  • Query Store UI enhancements and bug fixes
  • No force plan recompiles after MAX_PLANS_PER_QUERY is hit. The max_plans_per_query value can be examined from sys.database_query_store_options. NOTE: Force plan recompile could have potential performance overhead.

Temporal enables handling and analyzing database records that changes over time. Improvements in this release include:

  • Full support column with ROWVERSION (TIMESTAMP) to support UPDATE operation on ROWVERSION column in temporal table
  • COLUMNPROPERTY exposes ‘ishidden’ property
    select columnproperty (object_id ('dbo.sample_table'), 'SysStartTime', 'ishidden')
  • Several improvements in SQL Server Management Studio:
    • Syntax highlighting for temporal keywords
    • Transact-SQL client side validations
    • Script table as DROP TO includes DROP script for history table
    • SSMS surfaces IsHidden information in column Properties dialog

Query Execution provides improved diagnostics for memory grant usage. The following new XEvents were added to facilitate better diagnostics. Showplan xml is extended to include memory grant usage per thread and iterator (additions in “RunTimeCountersPerThread” element).

  • query_memory_grant_blocking
  • query_memory_grant_resource_semaphores
  • query_memory_grant_usage (details on ideal vs granted vs used memory)

Core Engine Scalability improvements dynamically partition thread safe memory objects by NUMA node or by CPU. This improvement will enable higher scalability of high concurrency workloads running on NUMA hardware.

  • Thread safe memory objects (of type CmemThread) will be dynamically promoted to be partitioned by NUMA node or by CPU based on workload characteristics and contention factor. In SQL 2012 and SQL 2014, TF8048 is needed to promote memory objects partitioned by node, to be partitioned by CPU. This improvement not only eliminated the need for the trace flag, but also dynamically determined partition based on contention.

DBCC CHECKDB improvements in this release include:

  • Persisted computed columns and filtered indexes validation. Persisted computed columns are frequently used. DBCC CHECKDB can take long time to complete with persisted columns. This improvement provides an option to do persisted column validation under EXTENDED_LOGICAL_CHECKS.
  • Performance improvements when validating a table with thousands of partitions.

Reporting Services added treemap and subburst charts. Report authors can now create two additional chart types:

  • Treemap
  • Subburst charts

Press Release Maitland Group Selects Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing to Deliver Global Transfer Agency Services with Improved Coverage, Control and Efficiency Leading global transfer agent replaces legacy system to accelerate time-to-market and boost operational efficiencies

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 28, 2015

The move is designed to enable Maitland to support its entire value chain of diverse investment products and funds – including long-only funds, retirement and unit-linked products, hedge funds, and alternatives – on a single application that is optimized for global distribution of investment products.

Maitland also selected Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing to standardize and consolidate its transfer agency services across product lines, global markets and customer segments to improve operational and cost efficiencies.

Oracle Communications Continues to Simplify Design and Delivery of Network Services to Support NFV and Business Agility

Oracle Database News - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 12:10
Press Release Oracle Communications Continues to Simplify Design and Delivery of Network Services to Support NFV and Business Agility New release of OSS suite enables agile and seamless network service design and order delivery across physical, virtual, and hybrid network environments

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 28, 2015

For communications service providers (CSPs), the design and introduction of new services is often a lengthy and manual process—especially when such services span physical and virtual networks. Exceptions such as order jeopardy and fallout, the design and delivery requirements for customized business-to-business (B2B) services, and the dynamics of newly virtualized networks add to this complexity.

Oracle Communications has released a new version of its operational support system (OSS) suite to help CSPs rapidly and agilely design services spanning physical and virtual networks. The suite is also designed to help streamline the operational delivery of customer orders—including high-growth B2B and wholesale orders—enabling CSPs to capitalize on the opportunities of a network function virtualization (NFV)-driven communications world.

With the upgraded OSS suite, Oracle Communications continues its focus on simplifying and automating the service design and order fulfillment process, regardless of order size and complexity, or the type of network on which it is delivered. Specifically, with this OSS suite CSPs can:

  • Efficiently deliver and manage contemporary network-based B2B services: Carrier Ethernet 2.0 is the network connectivity technology of choice in many areas such as the interconnection of data centers to support the growth in cloud services and the back-haul of network traffic to support the growth in LTE mobile services. To help CSPs leverage these opportunities, the upgraded OSS suite enhances the visual modeling, design, and configuration of packet-based network connectivity, including built-in support for MEF’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services such as E-Line and E-LAN, and the ability to efficiently process large B2B or wholesale orders up to 6,000 line items per order. The suite also supports agile orchestration and delivery of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services across multiple network operators, aligning with the MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration architecture recently demonstrated at TM Forum Live.
  • Seamlessly support the design and delivery of services on physical, virtual, and hybrid networks: Oracle Communications provides CSPs with a single, integrated, end-to-end design environment spanning business, operations, and network processes that, in conjunction with Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution, extends the OSS suite to deliver services on virtual and hybrid networks. This helps to ensure that CSPs avoid cumbersome or fragmented design approaches and can achieve not just network agility, but actual business agility.
  • Accelerate solution design in collaboration with existing provisioning systems: With a new catalog export capability, CSPs can holistically design their fulfillment solution once and then propagate the design to any number of participating systems, from enterprise catalogs to specialized provisioning systems. This end-to-end design approach enables faster and more efficient solution design by reducing manual steps in the process.
  • Efficiently manage exceptions in order processing: The upgraded OSS suite includes new tools to more effectively process complex orders and manage exceptions during order processing, including enhancements to order jeopardy and fallout management and batch order changes. These new tools can help CSPs diagnose and resolve issues faster without requiring custom modeling or specialist skills, in turn reducing operational costs and improving the customer experience.

“Enterprise and wholesale network services represent a significant growth opportunity for many CSPs,” said Dean Ramsay, senior analyst, Analysys Mason. “However, CSP market success has historically been impeded by legacy network technologies and operational complexity. With the increasing adoption of Carrier Ethernet and IP as technologies of choice, CSPs are seeking OSS solutions such as those from Oracle that offer built-in support for such technologies, enable efficient operations, and support the transparent delivery of such services on both virtual and physical networks.”

The new version of the Oracle Communications OSS suite includes updates to several products, including Oracle Communications Design Studio, Oracle Communications Order and Service Management, Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management, Oracle Communications ASAP, Oracle Communications IP Service Activator, Oracle Communications Network Integrity, and Oracle Communications Network Intelligence. It is integrated and optimized to work with the Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle Database 12c, and Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c, improving performance, manageability, and security and enabling future OSS suite deployments in the cloud as well as on premises.

“As CSPs continue to standardize and virtualize their networks, agility in service design and automation in service delivery have become major focus areas—which is putting a spotlight on OSS to rapidly launch and efficiently deliver innovative services on an increasingly dynamic network,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “This release of the Oracle Communications OSS suite accelerates design agility, provides support for the latest network technologies, and further simplifies network-based B2B service delivery in practice, supporting our commitment to delivering innovative OSS solutions in an increasingly virtualized communications world.”

pgCluu release 2.4 is out

PostgreSQL News - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 01:00
pgCluu 2.4 released

PostgreSQL Cluster Utilization

pgCluu is a Perl program used to perform a full audit of a PostgreSQL Cluster performances. It is divided in two parts, a collector used to grab statistics on the PostgreSQL server using psql and sar, a reports builder that will generate all HTML and charts output.

This release is a maintenance release that fix some issues. There's also some new interesting reports:

  • Transfers per second (read/write/both) on all devices from sar -b
  • Transfers per second for each device from sar -d .
  • Number of tasks created per second
  • Number of context switches per seconds.
  • Improve pg_stat_statement report by adding all shared block stats and read/write I/O timing per query when track_io_timing is enabled.
  • Add device with highest tps on overall system information.

and useful features:

  • Add --capture mode to pgcluu_collectd to be be able to build a snapshot of the PostgreSQL instance and exit. pgCluu will automatically adapt the report to this capture mode. It will use a temporary directory /tmp/pgcluu_capture to generate a tarball /tmp/pgcluu_capture.tar.gz containing the capture.
  • Add pgCluu logo and ico to the html output.
  • Add --charset option to be able to change the html charset, default: utf8.
  • Allow regular expression in database list available in reports, for example: with --db-only "p.*", only database beginning with p will be reported.
  • Allow pgcluu to parse and compute statistics from gzip compressed files.
  • pgcluu will not stop anymore if the sar file is not found, it will only show a warning message and continue.

This release also adds -r | --rotate-daily and -R | --rotate-hourly options to pgcluu_collectd be able to rotate statistic files on a daily or hourly basis. You can use -z or --compress option to compress rotated data files.

There also some code relative to next coming major release that will be used to allow a full incremental mode and a temporal selection into the collected statistics from a CGI program. This code enable caching (option -C or --cache) by dumping statistics stored in memory into binary files. With those files, data files can be removed (automatically with option -c or --clean) and report can be build later from them. This is not really useful now but this s the first stage to build incremental and cumulative reports.

See ChangeLog for a complete list of changes and bug fixes.

The goal of this project is to provide a complete PostgreSQL auditing tool that don't need any dependency to be run easily to audit a local or remote server.

If you just have a sar output file, pgCluu can be use to draw graphs about the system utilization only.

pgCluu is an original collection of tools built during my work at Dalibo. Those tools are published under the PostgreSQL License to be shared, any one is welcome to contribute.

Leverage DB2 BLU Acceleration technology for tables involving unsupported data types

IBM - DB2 and Informix Articles - Fri, 07/24/2015 - 05:00
DB2 BLU Acceleration can provide performance improvements ranging from 35x to 73x and beyond for analytical queries with minimal tuning. In the mixed environment between OLTP and OLAP called OLTAP, DB2 shadow tables can be used to leverage BLU Acceleration without sacrificing OLTP performance. On the other hand, there are some restrictions such as data types. Though most data types are supported, some data types such as LOB and XML are not supported. For example, if your fact table contains invoice PDF data stored in a BLOB column, you cannot use BLU Acceleration as it is, which means you cannot create tables such as column-organized table. But there are ways to leverage BLU Acceleration even in such cases. This article guides you through those steps.

Oracle Database 12<em>c</em> and Oracle Database In-Memory Certified and Supported by SAP for use with SAP Solutions

Oracle Database News - Fri, 07/24/2015 - 00:28
Press Release Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Database In-Memory Certified and Supported by SAP for use with SAP Solutions Oracle and SAP continue to collaborate to help ensure the latest Oracle Database technologies are available for use by customers using SAP applications

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 23, 2015

Oracle today announced Oracle Database In-Memory has been certified by SAP for use with SAP® solutions based on the SAP NetWeaver® 7.x technology platform. Customers can use SAP applications together with Oracle Database In-Memory to perform real-time data analytics together with real-time transaction processing on their existing applications, by adding SAP tables into the in-memory column store. This continues the longstanding collaboration between Oracle and SAP to meet the demand from customers to run SAP software together with Oracle technologies. Earlier this year, SAP certified Oracle Database 12c, Oracle Exadata Database Machine X5-2, and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X5-2 for use with SAP solutions.

Oracle Database In-Memory was released by Oracle a year ago. In its first year, sales have been nearly triple that of all new Oracle Database 11g options combined during their first year. Customers are delighted by the ease of adoption and potential performance gains delivered by Oracle Database In-Memory. 

“Lion Corporation’s business-critical Financial Management systems run SAP applications on Oracle Database and it has proven to be a solid solution that has helped us grow our business and become more efficient,” said Masatoshi Utsunomiya, Director of the Integrated Systems Division, Lion Corporation. “With SAP’s certification of Oracle Database In-Memory, we are excited to explore how the real-time speed and application transparency of Oracle Database In-Memory can further evolve us towards a real-time enterprise.”

“Oracle Database is the #1 database among SAP customers around the globe, and SAP’s certification of Oracle Database In-Memory, coupled with our extended reseller and support agreements, is indicative of its importance,” said Andy Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Database Server Technologies, Oracle. “Customers can be assured that their SAP applications running on Oracle Database and Oracle Engineered Systems are fully supported. Oracle Database In-Memory provides mutual customers with an enterprise-grade, in-memory solution from Oracle.”

“The fact that SAP certified Oracle Database 12c in March 2015 and Oracle Database In-Memory just three months later is a testament to the compatibility of Oracle Database In-Memory with existing applications," said Carl Olofson, research vice president, Application Development and Deployment, IDC. “This is a big win for customers who will now have a choice of using the latest technology from Oracle with existing SAP applications.”

Oracle Database In-Memory implements a unique dual-format architecture that delivers fast analytics together with high-performance OLTP. It processes data at a rate of billions of rows per second rather than millions and allows analytics to run directly in OLTP databases, further reducing delays and improving accuracy. Oracle Database In-Memory is easily deployed under any existing application that is compatible with the Oracle Database. No application changes are required. Oracle Database In-Memory uses Oracle’s mature scale-up, scale-out, and storage tiering technologies to cost effectively run any size workload. Oracle Database In-Memory inherits all the proven functionality of Oracle Database 12c, including the sophisticated and robust high availability solutions embodied in Oracle’s popular Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA).
