Right now I am involved in an Internet startup. I am stuck in the role
of DBA, but I am very new at this. I am also writing the interface to
the database for our application using Pro*C (although I'm open to using
OCI directly if necessary).
What I need is some sort of part-time consulting help. For example, my
major 2 problems that I can't solve right now are:
1) My Pro*C program is supposed to run indefinitely and it maintains
on open Oracle connection. However, it seems that after a while
the connection times out if it isn't being used. Next time I
try to execute an SQL statement, I get an error message. I have
added code to try and recover from this, but then it seems the
program gets into a bad state.
2) My Pro*C program (running on Linux) can not connect to a remote
database. 'sqlplus' can connect using the same connect string
from the same machine. The Pro*C program just segfaults (no
error is returned).
If you think you can help with either of these problems, I would be
willing to compensate you for your time.
Likewise - are there companies out there that do this sort of thing?
Like per-incident consulting for Oracle?
