Dennis,
We use DB links to allow selects where data info is needed on two instances. One is a report type and the other is being updated by the users all day. They work great. To keep the table naming simple and allow the application to be written on one development instance, I use synonyms to identify the tables over the link. Create synonym table1 for table1_at_dblink.

If all he needs is select he cannot corrupt the DB if the DBA does not grant unnecessary privileges. Folks
use dblinks all the time.

One of our development DBAs suggested today to build a private database link between production and test database so that he can run some queries against both at the same time. I am a little concerned because he might make a mistake and accidentally corrupt the prod database. Anybody out there who is doing the same thing? Are there any other potential ramifications?
TIA
