Oracle patchest


Some people tweet about new Oracle patch set I decided to check it too but I can't find it on MOS any more. Not only me as Tim Hall  (@oraclebase) tweet about that situation too.
Anyway there is one important note on MOS - 1189783.1 - starting with patch set new Oracle patch sets will be full installations of Oracle Software and patching out-of-place will be preferred one or even mandatory one in case of Grid Infrastructure.
I hope this note doesn't disappear from MOS like patch set and will be still valid after a few days.
Now I'm waiting for to appear once again.

New version of Simulating ASH


I have mentioned some time ago about using Simulating ASH to solve performance issue in Oracle 9i database.
According to some restrictions I have to customize it a little bit and than I agreed with Kyle Hailey that I will publish it as a new version of S-ASH. A new project has been created on SourceForge to keep a repository and this new code and installation instruction can be find here.

Please feel free to post any comments or remarks. I have some idea about potential enhancement of that tool but I'm open for any new too.
