About me

I am acting as a database engineer since 1999 mainly for financial or public sectors. I love all kind of data: big, small, structured or not.
I used to work for very large and very critical environments.

I work mainly on the following oracle subjects:

  • Automation
  • Exadata
  • High Availability Design and Implementation (Standby Database, Real Application Cluster, Data Guard)
  • Automatic Storage Management (ASM)
  • Databases Performance Tuning
  • Install, Patch and Upgrade
  • Streams
  • SQL and PL/SQL Application Tuning
  • Security

I am Oracle Exadata 11g Certified Implementation Specialist, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) Administrator Certified Expert and also Oracle Database Administrator Certified Professional (OCP 9i/10g/11g).

and an OakTable member

I am currently having a lot of interest around open source and mainly PostgreSQL.

  1. Hi Bertrand,

    We are in the same LinkedIn group where I read your post about RAC one node.

    I just stopped by to wish you luck with your blog. Sharing your vast Oracle experience with others will help other DBAs avoid problems or resolve them faster. This could be very valuable.

    I will be following your blog.

    1. Hi Olga,

      Thanks you very much for your comment, I really appreciate it.
      I hope this blog will suit your needs.


  2. Hi Betrand
    Thanks a lot for the script to get the SQL start and end times using the new sql_exec* columns in 11g. This is a very useful script .. Without these new columns we had to historically depend on the average run times. But now we can find out the run times close enough to the actual runtimes for a particular execution of SQL
