Well, this certainly has potential...
Alberto Dell'Era sent me an email pointing out an interesting blog entry on a new blog - the "Inside the Oracle Optimizer" blog.
The first technical article there is about the new "Intelligent Cursor Sharing" feature in Oracle Database 11g Release 1. I wrote about this very briefly in an upcoming Oracle Magazine article - but this post is chock full of details - very clear.
I liked the first entry they posted describing what this blog will be about:
This blog will be our groups opportunity to set the record straight on the Oracle Cost Based Optimizer, and the statistics that feed it. It will also give you the opportunity to post questions and have them answered by the team.
So, it sounds like it is going to be monitored by people from the optimizer group itself. I've added it to my list of RSS feeds for sure.
Definitely something to check out!
