SQLTXPLAIN quick tips and tricks and DB Optimizer VST 1

Lately I’ve been busy on projects and research so I’m putting more and more stuff on my wiki/braindump… and really I need to catch up on blogging.
I have a longer draft post about SQLTXPLAIN.. but I haven’t finished it yet so I’ll just go with the quick post for now.


I’ve been using SQLTXPLAIN for quite a while, and I can say I’m a really big fan. It’s a cool tool to use for systematic SQL Tuning so I got them all neatly documented here http://karlarao.tiddlyspot.com/#SQLTXPLAIN.


Mining EMGC Notification Alerts Reply

The past few days, I’ve been troubleshooting an email alerting problem on an EMGC 11.1 install on a client site.
But this troubleshooting also includes setting up my own email server and reproducing the problem http://karlarao.tiddlyspot.com/#EmailNotificationsNotSending
Watching/digging on the EM web based interface is tedious so I devised a way to just mine on the MGMT views… thanks to the MOS 421499.1 EMDIAG REPVFY Kit – which is a good source for mining the EMGC repository.
