I am not aware of RMAN (for 8.0.x/NT) and its usage.

Can someone suggest me some goodies on RMAN on Internet sites.

Performance   (223 Views)
Hi Guys, We are running Oracle817 on sun solaris 8, I use toad to monitor the database performance. The performance utilities are taking a long time and there is performance degradation on the dba user. The user schema's performance is good except for the sys or system user. Any pointers will be appreciated. One more thing we recntly went live before there was no archiving, now archiving is enabled.

enhancing performance   (164 Views)
I've recently inherited an application that really wasn't created all that well. For example, most of the important data is stored in one tablewhich contains 31 fields. Fields like 'manufacturer' have no look up tables. ALL of the data is stored in this 'spreadsheet' style table.'s a nightmare. I need to execute a like query against a varchar2 field. Considering there are close to 1 million records in this table, is there anyway to enhance the speed of the return of the query (without pulling that data out into another table) It currently takes 2 minutes to bring back one record. The field is indexed.....and that is the only thing I know of that would help.

Self Join....performance...   (154 Views)
Friends, I am trying to do self join with one table. my requirement is get data based on different date. so i had created 3 times self joins but it had performance issue. select sum(a.col1), sum(a.col2), sum(a.col3), sum(a.col4), sum(a.col5), sum(b.col1), sum(b.col2), sum(b.col3), sum(b.col4), sum(b.col5), sum(c.col1), sum(c.col2), sum(c.col3), sum(c.col4), sum(c.col5) from tablename a, tablename b, tablename c where between (select sysdate from dual) and (select sysdate -1 from dual) and between (select sysdate-2 from dual) and (select sysdate -3 from dual) and between (select sysdate-4 from dual) and (select sysdate -5 from dual) group by a.col6
Query performance   (185 Views)
I have a database tables which contains two tables with records > 30000. I wrote a database query "SELECT rank, b.isbn, book_name, volume_no, author, publisher, price, quantity FROM tbl_rank_books b LEFT OUTER JOIN (SELECT * FROM tbl_rank_stock WHERE customer = " + ddlCustomer.SelectedValue + ") s ON b.isbn = s.isbn AND b.category_id = s.category_id WHERE b.category_id = '" + ddlCategory.SelectedValue + "' ORDER BY rank;" It took me about 1 minute per time in my developer machine while it has timeout error in the server. I would like to know if there is any room to optimize the query performance. I have already used indexing to do this. If there are no problems, how can i eradicate the timeout problem Thank you
To Boost Performance   (174 Views)
We are designing the database for a high load web application. We used 4 techniques. 1.No outer joins,No Unions, > only in reports 2.No joins in main forms 3.Choose the smallest dataTypes possible. 4.Used a single instance for all users. Are there any additional MAJOR ones using ORACLE with .net
very slow performance when using sum and group by   (190 Views)
I have a query which runs very very slow, it is doing a full table scan on tab1: select sum(col1) from tab1 where col2 = 'x' group by col3 There is an index on (col2, col3), the following query runs very fast: select * from tab1 where col2 = 'x' I tried to change the index to (col1, col2, col3), but there is no improvement by doing that, how can I improve the performance of this query

rman`backups`and`raid`5   (121 Views)
I was wondering whether anyone has experienced poor backup times with oracle databases on RAID 5 We are using netbackup in conjunction with rman to backup a 1.5TB database that takes about 16 hours to complete. A host of rman parameters have been tried - combinations of filesperset and maxopenfiles - with no benefit seen. Our database uses RAID 5 spread over about a 100 disks. We have noticed that no matter what we do the maximum throughput for the backup is only 50mb/s. We are using an LTO3 tape library whcih can write at 60mb/s per tape drive. But no matter how many tape drives we allocate for use we only get 50mb/s as the total throughput - resulting in a backup that is over 16 hours. I have monitored v$backup_aysnc_io and have noticed that there is for the most part poor read rates as seen by the effective_bytes_per_second for TYPE='INPUT'. From that I can only infer that the slower the read done by rman the slower the backup will be. We have seen with a filesystem backup we are able to achieve a rate of about 100mb/s - although this type of backup is different to an rman backup there is quite a difference seen in the rate. Just wondering if there is someway to work out if the RAID configuration could be the issue here
rman status   (152 Views)
The below Query doesnt show the % completed status.It always shows 0.But the time now keeps changing..and the backup finishes in the nor mal speed as it has to do. select sid, serial#, context, round(sofar/totalwork*100,2) "% Complete", substr(to_char(sysdate,'ddmmyy hh24:mi:ss'),1,15) "Time Now", elapsed_seconds from v$session_longops where substr(opname,1,4)='RMAN' Oracle version on AIX 4.3.2 Did anyone faced like this.

Oracle add rman backup standby database to release the rman backup on system io pressure, and now i am testing it. I have some question: 1. Can the backup be done while system is open read only when doing rman backup, rman write some information to controlfile. Does the read only mode allow modification to the controlfile will there be anything wrong I am testing it , and it seems ok, but i am not sure 2. When i was backing up the standby in mount status, oracle begin to do recovery. SO, will the backup be ok Can i use this backup to recover
