The new D2-Client does not correctly display the icon for some formats. This usually happens when the icon.css is not up to date based on the content format in the repository. The solution is to find these formats and update the icon.css.

A thread on OTN Forum about Exadata came to the following question: "But how can I monitor if it is effectively used or not?". This is a common question. There are 3 exclusive features coming with Exadata, and instance statistics can show their usage. Even better: two of them can even be checked on your current (non-Exadata) system. And that is good to foresee how Exadata can improve your workload.

When you learn about SQL Server, you will often hear that a commit transaction is a synchronous operation and that you can trust it. In this blog post, I will provide some details about what we mean by synchronous behavior. The reason is that sometimes, when I talk about the new delayed durability feature provided by SQL Server 2014, there are some confusions. If you want more details on this new feature, please read the blog post of my colleague Stéphane Haby here. A quick shortcut is often the following: writing to the transaction log is synchronous, while writing with the new delayed durability feature is asynchronous.

The new Oracle OEM Cloud Control 12.1.0.4 release migration makes it necessary for the DBA to migrate the old agent version to 12.1.0.4. If your infrastructure has a huge number of agents and if you want to apply the agent patches to the upgraded agents, this might be a very time-consuming job.

This week, I attended the SQLSaturday 2014 in Paris. During the Pre-Conference on Thursday, I followed Isabelle Van Campenhoudt for her SQL Server Performances Audit session. This conference took the form of an experience sharing between attendees. Indeed, we tried to list together the most important software, tools, features or scripts which will help an SQL Server DBA during his work. In this blog, I want to share our final list with you.
