Today I've presented SQL Plan Directives at the SOUG Romandie event. I had a question about the import/export of directives by Data Pump. The idea is that a lot of testing has been done on QA in order to validate the upgrade to 12c. A few directives had bad consequences (see Ludovico Caldara blog post for an example), then directives have been disabled. When going to production, they want to start with those directives disabled. Yes, they can be imported. We have to pack them into a staging table, import that table, and unpack them. It's similar tho what we do with SQL Plan Baselines.

Everybody is talking about in-memory databases these days. And everybody is talking about columnar store for sets of data because this can be a benefit for analytic queries. And a lot of people start mixing these terms not realizing that these topics are not exchangeable.

Alfresco support, by default, the preview in your browser of some video formats like mp4 but doesn't support some others like mkv, avi or wmv. Even if Google Chrome can read mkv files for example, if you try to use the action "View in Browser" (this is not the same thing as the preview), Chrome will not try to play the mkv file but will download it instead. That's why if you upload an mp4 video in Alfresco, you will certainly be able to watch this video directly in your browser. In this blog, I will try to explain how to configure an external tool to take care of the thumbnails creation and transformations for your videos. To achieve that, we will install and configure ffmpeg. In addition to that, you can also very easily configure Alfresco to embed an external video player like "FlowPlayer" that would take care of playing all video formats directly "streaming" from Alfresco, not using your browser. Basically, this is done by replacing the preview page for some Mime types but I will not describe it in details here.

This blog post is something I had in draft and Laurent Schneider blog post reminds me to publish it. With the right RMAN configuration you should not have to managed backup files yourself. The RMAN catalog knows them and RMAN should be able to access them. If you want to keep a backup for a long time, you just tell RMAN to keep it.
But sometimes, RMAN is not connected to your tape backup software, or the backups are not shared on all sites, and you have to restore or copy the set of files that is needed for a restore database or a duplicate database.

The last week-end, I was at the SQL Saturday 369 that held in Lisbon. If you take a look at the agenda, you'll probably see that there is a lot of interesting sessions with a lot of famous speakers. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend to all sessions, so I decided to focus only on those that have a direct correlation with my work.

Let’s continue with this series about inserting 1M rows and let’s perform the same test with a new variation by using SQL Server In-Memory features. For this blog post, I will still use a minimal configuration that consists of only 1 virtual hyper-V machine with 1 processor, 512MB of memory. In addition my storage includes VHDx disks placed on 2 separate SSDs  (one INTEL SSDC2BW180A3L and one Samsung SSD 840 EVO). No special configuration has been performed on Hyper-V.
