I’ll be co-speaking with Tyler Muth at E4 and we will be talking about Performance Visualization… some of you may already know that I’m really a big fan of Tableau and just to give you an example on what the tool can do I’ve consolidated all the different viz that I’ve done during my sizing & performance gigs here http://goo.gl/xZHHY and Tyler has also been doing a lot of Exadata performance & benchmarking gigs lately and there were a couple of times where we collaborated on specific viz (him doing it on R) just to validate each other’s work. In short, we are passionate about this stuff. And we are going to be awesome
The session title is: Performance data visualization with Oracle R and Tableau
and here’s the abstract:
I’ve been really busy lately doing a lot of stuff, and most of the time if I’m doing some intensive research on a topic I would just put them all in my braindump (wiki) so if you’ve been following this blog might as well subscribe on my wiki RSS because there are just a bunch of bits of research going-on (see this mindmap) and what usually happens is I put them all together to make an awesome presentation/white paper.
So this 2013.. I’ll be presenting at RMOUG, IOUG Collaborate, and KSCOPE 2013
If you’ll be at RMOUG next week make sure you have the Guidebook app on your phone then search for “RMOUG Training Days 2013″ and clicking on it will download the whole guide which has all the details you need to make the most out of a very technical conference the app is awesssomeee, and you can take a pic, tweet, maps, facebook, and most of all my schedule is lined up in one page and very searchable. My schedule is below:
This is a quick video of our Big Data Appliance first boot yesterday in our server room (with Kerry and Andy), now she’s beside our two Exadata quarter racks all we have to do now is connect both of them through the infiniband spine switch located at the bottom of each of the rack. At the latter part of the video you’ll hear me counting as I power on the top half of the rack, I’ve seen enough blinking green lights yesterday and that’s what I call “server porn”.. thinking about how can I push the limits of those servers and all the fancy monitoring and workload characterization I can do with it.. but of course this is everybody’s R&D machine at Enkitec Andy and I had a quick look on the server, it comes bundled with a particular image version and running on UEK kernel (OEL 5.6).. the machines are not yet configured, and it has a similar Exadata onecommand utility to configure the entire stack which the doc names it as the “Mammoth Utility” http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E36174_01/doc.11/e36161/mammoth.htm#BABFCEGJ which will install and configure the Cloudera Distribution including Apache Hadoop plus the other Big Data stuff (connectors, NoSQL database, etc.)
