“The size of a thumb was used by humans as a measurement for very long time. Used by craftsmen, the size of body parts like a thumb, hand, forearm, foot and so on were both good enough to be used within a team, and even the ratio between those measurement were acceptable accurate and comparable for each individual. But such a system comes to its limits. Different regions had different commonly agreed definitions for the same unit. This makes it hard to properly compare and convert, especially when it comes to written contracts between different regions…”

Gary Gordhamer writes, “In the world of Oracle databases, DBA’s and system administrators don’t always see eye to eye. Mostly I have found that this is really just about coming at challenges from different angles. Some of the major changes in Oracle since 10g version has been the introduction of Oracle Automatic Storage Management or ASM. This has led to many features such as ASMLIB, ASM Clustered Filesystem (ACFS), and now the ASM Filter Driver (AFD or ASMFD). These features require OS specific compatible libraries, and kernel modules.”
For this blog, he focuses on Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL)
Alfredo Krieg writes, “Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) 13.4 is available in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Marketplace. This image is very flexible and allows you to choose between different EM Deployment sizes ranging from Simple (Single node) to Large (Multi-node) setups.”
Dayne Carley says, “Oracle Analytics for Applications (FAW / OAX) is built on top of Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) and is powered by Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW). FAW extracts and loads data from your Oracle Fusion Applications Cloud into an instance of ADW and provides a semantic model with prebuilt KPIs, dashboards, and reports in OAC.
This post describes the OCI and Fusion Applications components required to provision FAW, the components created by the provisioning process and a step-by-step guide to the process.”
“Nobody will argue that Oracle Support is a word class experience. Like it or not, the service is here to support thousands and individuals can get lost in the process. If you navigate the process correctly, you can get results.”
Ludovico’s blog begins with:
