Oracle dbms_workload_repository awr_global_report_text fails with ORA-06553 PLS-307

My last post was about generating AWR reports from SQL – not a very complicated case. “But” – little word, big meaning. And suddenly we get a strange error message.

How to create an Oracle AWR report with SQL and PL/SQL

AWR is a great tool (but needs diagnostics pack). It can create very useful reports for performace analysis over a given period.

DOAG Noon2Noon Event Nürnberg / MySQL vs. Oracle – Review

It was time to try something new in our DOAG Database Community. And please, please just not another frontal conference: twenty guys look forward, one looks back, like eight-oars-and-coxswain. I don’t know if DOAG invented it, but it was a success: The Noon2Noon Event. How does it work? It’s like 24 hours of BarCamp, starting with […]
