Library Note Morgan's Library Page Header
For how many years have you been working with physical servers that are starving your database of the memory necessary to deploy important new performance features such as the Result Cache, Memoptimize Pool, In-Memory Aggregation, In-Memory Column Store, and Full Database Caching? Too long? Contact me to learn how to improve all queries ... not just some queries.

Subprograms
 
DESTROY_ORACLE_FS
Drops a file system of type specified by file system type and name similar to mkfs on Unix dbms_fs.destroy_oracle_fs(
fstype IN VARCHAR2,
fsname IN VARCHAR2);
exec dbms_fs.destroy_oracle_fs('FUBAR', 'FUBAR');
 
MAKE_ORACLE_FS
Creates a file system of type specified by file system type and name similar to mkfs on Unix dbms_fs.make_oracle_fs(
fstype    IN VARCHAR2,
fsname    IN VARCHAR2,
fsoptions IN VARCHAR2);
-- comma separated file system create options
exec dbms_fs.make_oracle_fs('FUBAR', 'FUBAR', 'FUBAR');

The fact that this runs successfully, and there are no dependencies, unfortunately tells us nothing about it.
 
MOUNT_ORACLE_FS
Mount an Oracle file system on the specified mount point similar to mount in Unix dbms_fs.mount_oracle_fs (
fstype        IN VARCHAR2,
fsname        IN VARCHAR2,
mount_point   IN VARCHAR2,
mount_options IN VARCHAR2);
exec dbms_fs.mount_oracle_fs('FUBAR', 'FUBAR', '/fubar', 'FUBAR');

-- Doing this hang the session and the system ... SYSDBA can log on but a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE does not work forcing an ABORT.
 
UNMOUNT_ORACLE_FS
Unmount an Oracle file system on the specified mount point similar to umount in Unix dbms_fs.unmount_oracle_fs(
fsname      IN VARCHAR2,
mount_point IN VARCHAR2);
exec dbms_fs.unmount_oracle_fs('FUBAR', '/fubar');

-- Doing this hang the session and the system ... SYSDBA can log on but a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE does not work forcing an ABORT.
