            This guy wasn't to impressed by the new auto-tuning toys.  


            Not saying they won't go eventually, but as the man said "don't hold your breath". The first person to invent the perfect tuning software for databases, will basically be able to buy Microsoft and Oracle out of loose change!

	Tom Kyte did a nice job answering this one, here:

Mark J. Bobak Senior Oracle Architect ProQuest Information & Learning "Exception: Some dividends may be reported as qualified dividends but are not qualified dividends. These include: * Dividends you received on any share of stock that you held for less than 61 days during the 121-day period that began 60 days before the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is the first date following the declaration of a dividend on which the purchaser of a stock is not entitled to receive the next dividend payment. When counting the number of days you held the stock, include the day you disposed of the stock but not the day you acquired it. See the examples below. Also, when counting the number of days you held the stock, you cannot count certain days during which your risk of loss was diminished. See Pub. 550 for more details." --IRS, Form 1040-A Instruction Booklet, Line 9b: Qualified Dividends ________________________________ From: [] On Behalf Of Ram K Sent: Saturday, March 04, 2006 6:05 PM To: oracle-l Subject: 10g ADDM: Threat to DBAs? Hello gurus, I searched on this list for ADDM. I did not find the answer on this topic. Are ADDM and its successors going to put DBAs out of jobs? or reduce the number of DBAs required? I read about it online in one site that the dependency on DBAs for tuning might end soon.
Thanks, Ram. ****************************************************************************
