    Currently it is possible to connect to database through TCP connection from network. If the database is exposed to internet, then the risk is even higher. Anyone from the outside world can connect to database by knowing few basic parameters. This is a...
  • OE Management Alerts - System Error

    When OE Management alerts on a SYSTEM ERROR the date and time stamp on the alert is the date and time the error was discovered, not the date and time the error was actually logged. This means you have to do some work within the logfile to work out what...

  • nap parameters in nanoseconds

    Add new startup paramaters -nanonap and -nanonapmax to specify the "nap" and "napmax" values in nanoseconds. If specified these parameters should supercede the current millisecond based -nap & -napmax startup values.
