 A Dutch web-hosting company caused disruption and the global slowdown of the internet, according to a not-for-profit anti-spam organization.

The interruptions came after Spamhaus, a spam-fighting group based in Geneva, temporarily added the Dutch firm, CyberBunker, to a blacklist that is used by e-mail providers to weed out spam.

Cyberbunker is housed in a five-story former NATO bunker and famously offers its services to any website “except child porn and anything related to terrorism”. As such it has often been linked to behaviour that anti-spam blacklist compilers have condemned.

Users of Cyberbunker retaliated with a huge ‘denial of service attack’. These work by trying to make a network unavailable to…

Everyone loves to make predictions and almost everyone is bad at it. Not only are we enchanted by our own forecasts, but people in all fields — journalism, politics, tech, marketing — make a nice living off fawning over the future, pretending to know which gadgets will sweep the next decade and whether the economy will recover and when. But a 2011 survey of morning talk shows came to the remarkable conclusion that the pundits featured were no more accurate than a coin toss. The realization that most predictions fail has been elaborated upon in Nate Silver’s book, The Signal and the Noise, and has even inspired Philip E. Tetlock, psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, to launch a project seeking to improve punditry’s abysmal record.

The Healthcare Marketer

Lately I’ve felt like my blog has become infographic central! Infographics are coming out of the woodwork. Trust me when I tell you that most infographics that people send me never make it into this blog. Every infographic is selling something; that’s just the way it is.

It doesn’t break any new ground, but the information, in graphic form, is interesting. Take a look. To view a larger version of the infographic, simply click on the image.

Nigel Noble's Oracle Blog

My site uses a 3rd party SQL monitoring tool which collects data based on the Oracle view v$sqlstats.  The tool collects data for all sql statements which have been executed since the previous collection using the last_active_time column. A few months ago we noticed (after an upgrade to 11g) we would occasionally be missing some sql statements from the monitor graphs. We investigated the problem, re-produced a test case, raised a bug with Oracle and Support has just released an 11.2 patch.

Before I explain the issue and demonstrate the issue, I will explain what prompted me to post this blog item. Until now I always thought this just effected v$sqlstats (and my 3rd party monitoring tool) and not AWR. If you ever trace (10046) an AWR collection you will not find any references to v$sqlstats. If the data is missing from the 3rd Party tools “I can always rely on AWR?”……
