Friday Spotlight: Vitual Sysadmin Day and Hands On Labs

Happy Friday!

If you missed Virtual Sysadmin Day last month, it is available in replay mode. It's not quite the same as the real-time environment where you could ask questions, but you do get recorded versions of the presentations that were given to give you some extra context for working through the Hands On Labs. Also, if you are in EMEA friendly time zones, there is a second live Virtual Sysadmin Day coming up on March 18. You can register here.

Speaking of Hands On Labs, the ones from Virtual Sysadmin Day are hosted on a Wiki page here. But the really cool thing is there are several additional Hands On Labs there that you can work through, too. So, if you're in the mood to learn a lot more about Oracle Linux administration, have a look and see what interests you.

Have a great week!

Happy Friday!

Over at our Ksplice Blog (which has one of my favorite taglines, "Rebooting is Obsolete"), Oracle's Tim Hill writes about the new SNMP plug-in for Ksplice, which allows the use of Oracle Enterprise Manager or other SNMP-compatible monitoring solution to monitor Ksplice instances. It's very cool stuff, we hope you check it out.

Friday Spotlight - October 25, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone!

Our spotlight this week is on a really cool technical tip on the Oracle Technology Network from Yuli Vasiliev called "How to Launch Linux Utilities from Oracle Database". From Yuli's introduction:

"By wrapping a Linux utility in a script and using an external database table's preprocessor directive, you can launch the utility from within Oracle Database and have the utility's output be inserted into the external table. This allows you to do things such as query operating system data and then join it with data in Oracle Database."

Head on over to OTN to read the full article.
