Changed from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. Let’s see how it goes.

On another note I am off to Gothenburg in a couple of weeks. Pictures soon.

A better Oracle DAC startserver.sh

Just want to share my Oracle DAC 10g startserver.sh.

startserver.sh is already provides as part of the DAC 10g install. I have added a couple of extra java parameters to allow a larger heap size and garbage collection method.

1
2
3
. ./config.sh 
 
$JAVA -server -Xms2048m -Xmx2048m -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:ErrorFile='./hs_err_pid.log' -cp $DACCLASSPATH com.siebel.etl.net.QServer
. ./config.sh 

$JAVA -server -Xms2048m -Xmx2048m -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:ErrorFile='./hs_err_pid.log' -cp $DACCLASSPATH com.siebel.etl.net.QServer

-Xms and -Xmx give the dac server application 2GB of heap size to play with.

-XX:+UseParNewGC forces JVM to use parallel young generation GC with the concurrent GC.

-XX:ErrorFile should your dac server crash with a JVM error the stacktrace/dump will be stored in the specified file.

Until I feel like posting again ;)

Fixing ORA-00838: Specified value of MEMORY_TARGET is too small

I can never remember how to do this so its getting dumped here.

SQL>startup
ORA-00838: Specified value of MEMORY_TARGET is too small, needs to be at least 1172M
SQL> create pfile='/tmp/pfile.bkp' from spfile;
File created.


$ vi /tmp/pfile.backup

*.memory_target=2048m

Start sqlplus, and import the pfile settings into the spfile


SQL> create spfile from pfile='/tmp/pfile.bkp';
File created.

Ye’ should be golden!

:D

Italy Part 3 – Florence

The 3rd city on my trip to Italy was Florence, great looking city with lots to see. Museums are closed on Mondays which I thought was strange apart from that we had a great time.

The first night we stayed in. We got some take-away pizza from the recommended restaurant around the corner. It was pretty amazing, I washed it down with a bottle of red that had been given to us so it was safe to say I was sozzled by the time I hit the hay.

Below are some of the photos I took during my stay.

1 year on

Hi,

My blog is now 1 year old, I took a look at the current site stats and have just passed 1000 views :D

So over 12 months that is 83 views per month works out at around 3 per day. Maybe if i post more these will go up.

At the moment I am happy with the blog direction I may start hosting it myself rather than hear on WordPress only time will tell.
