Job Overview & Responsibilities

Mythics is seeking a Sr Oracle DBA to provide advanced engineering support to assist the Customer in resolving software issues related to detecting and adjusting for failures of Oracle RAC, or the platform that Oracle RAC operates on. The Customer’s software is using TAF APIs to detect a failed Oracle instance and under some conditions, the TAF APIs are failing. Some of the failures are resulting in a Linux core file. The stack trace shows errors in the TAF API. The Customer has used standard Oracle Support to assist in resolving this issue without success and is now seeking advanced engineering support to resolve these issues. This is a remote position.

  • The Customer’s architecture is a three-tier architecture that utilizes web services and web protocols. The architecture uses C++ custom software, on Linux, that implements the business logic, utilizes Open MQ and Glassfish as the middle tier that communicates with the Oracle DB and Oracle RAC, and client software is written in C++/Java on Linux.
  • Problems to be addressed:

In this scenario, the Service Provider is to provide recommendations for addressing performance and throughput concerns to/from Oracle RAC.
    • Provide recommendations to increase availability and performance of the overall architecture.
