 Oracle Software Development All Stops For Intel Itanium Microprocessor 

Since that time, HP will continue to try to Oracle supports its products with Itanium, gradually raising the charges to Oracle until the last day-June 15 HP sued Oracle.

AWR Formatter


Anyone who usually look at AWR performance reports to analyze Oracle performance problems, often have their own reading process and approach to all data that shows this report, but I always missed a tool that will facilitate reading all data. I've found! "AWR Formatter" developed by the DBA Tyler Muth facilitates this reading. Fantastic, you must try.

AWR Formatter is an extension of Chrome (file with. Crx) free once installed in the browser, each time you view an AWR report in HTML, gives you the option to format to help you see all your information. Once formatted text, HTML is browser in different tabs.Highlight the following features that gives you added the format:

  • Possibility of performing conversions dynamically KB / MB / GB / TB in the various indicators
  • Possibility of searching the meaning of a pending event, parameter, etc ... (this is really useful)
  • Formatted tables sortable, much like an Excel ...
  • Ability to view the text of the SQL command's ...
