IP address for sysdba connections

UTL_INADDR package provides a PL/SQL procedures to support internet addressing. It provides an API to retrieve host names and IP addresses of local and remote hosts.

Tested for my local sys connection

What happens when DATAFILE RESIZE?

There is a need to understand what will be the impact when resizing some 8000 plus datafiles consecutively.  After some search did some test like enabled 10046 trace and captured what will happen when there is a datafile resize.

Used tkprof to format and provided the output to customer explaining the behavior.

Connected to:
Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options

SQL> show user
SQL> oradebug setmypid
Statement processed.
SQL> alter session set tracefile_identifier='mytrace_10046';

Session altered.

SQL> alter session set events '10046 trace name context forever, level 12';

Session altered.

SQL> alter database datafile 'D:\ORACLE_DB\TESTDB\TESTDB\TESTDRP1.DBF' resize 150m;

Database altered.

SQL> ALTER SESSION SET EVENTS='10046 trace name context off';

Session altered.

SQL> oradebug tracefile_name

TKPROF Output.

alter database datafile 'D:\ORACLE_DB\TESTDB\TESTDB\TESTDRP1.DBF' resize 150m

Recommendation given ,
-- See the above test, when there is a resize it will go through all this events
-- This test is done on my local machine where there is a very minimal load.
-- As it took 1.99s for a single file there will be more time considering your server.
-- Considering other factors like OS/ storage performance, it will take more time
-- Do it in a small batches and in a sequential manner. So that it will not harm database performance. 
-- Also it is best to test a small batch to estimate run  time in non business hours and proceed with the activity.

how to filter records with symbol ~ (tilt)

There is one requirement for customer to select rows which has tilt at the beginning and at the end. After some searching found REGEXP_LIKE New Operator in 10G. Did some test case and seems so simple. Thought to post as I didn't get much detailed info on google.

Rows begins with ~
18:06:37 SQL> select * from test where REGEXP_LIKE (ID,'^~');


Rows begin with ~ and number and ~
18:09:55 SQL> select * from test where REGEXP_LIKE (ID,'^~[0-9]~$');


Rows begin with ~ and any no. of digits and ends with ~
18:11:06 SQL> select * from test where REGEXP_LIKE (ID,'^~[0-9]*~$');


{m} Matches exactly m times
Bracket expression for specifying a matching list that should match any one of the expressions represented in the list. A nonmatching list expression begins with a circumflex (^) and specifies a list that matches any character except for the expressions represented in the list.
^-- beginning of line
$ End of line.

Rows begin with ~ and then 2 numbers and ends with ~
18:11:42 SQL> select * from test where REGEXP_LIKE (ID,'^~[0-9]{2}~$');


Thanks for reading, Please comment on post. Happy reading.
