A new day, still importing tablespaces

Categories RDBMS

Just realised that it’s a new day. 2 AM, and 16 hours since I left home. Another one of those days.

As a techie this happens really often, sometimes I like it, other times I just hate it. I’m going to have to explain this to my girlfriend again :).

I’m importing tablespaces, and it has to be over until 6 AM, as it’s a production application and if it’s not online and fully functional I’m going to get a lot of messages from a couple of thousand of users.

Lot’s to think about while waiting, and a lot of coffee to drink.

I wish to thank the guys that designed the oracle imp utility, which keeps on fighting on the remote datacenter, although the power in the office went down twice in the last two hours, taking my shell with it.

Only 4 Gigabytes left, with a little luck I’ll be done by 4 AM.
