  • 18. How Oracle makes patches<br />
  • 19. The patching process<br />Creating patches<br />Porting a patch<br />Backporting a patch<br />Patch merging<br />Patch collections<br />Patch Sets<br />Patch Set Updates<br />Critical Patch Updates<br />
  • 20. Patch creation<br />Oracle consists of some 9 million lines of C code<br />This code is identical for all platforms – we have the same source tree everywhere.<br />Patching is the process of:<br />Updating the common source - a patch transaction<br />This affects one or more modules<br />These modules must then be compiled as object modules for the target platform<br />Object modules are packaged together with metadata for Opatch<br />This package is the basic patch on Metalink<br />
  • 21. Porting patches<br />The source change is done at one of two levels:<br />Either the current development level (11.9.9.9.9)<br />Or the current maintenance level (11.2)<br />This change is made on the current reference development platform – which changes periodically, currently Oracle Enterprise Linux.<br />We then determine whether the change is eligible to be merged into prior versions – back level versions – and if so we generate the information to back port the change. <br />
  • 22. Back Porting<br />This is generally done on customer demand – I.e in response to a Service Request<br />We identify a bug/defect, which has backport information for our customer’s platform.<br />We generate a backport request<br />This requests a specific patch be generated<br />For this bug<br />For a specific version: 10.2.0.4, for example<br />For a specific platform: 209, Linux on Z, for example<br />This generates the object module and Opatch metadata<br />Packaged as a Patch on Metalink<br />
  • 23. Patch Merging<br />If you already have a patch which affects a common object module, OPatch will detect this<br />Support will also ask for an Opatch lsinventory listing when generating a backport<br />If there is a conflict, i.e two fixes which affect the same module, we must merge the fixes – i.e make a source change which incorporates both fixes.<br />We then generate this as before as a patch, backported as appropriate<br />Obviously, this takes longer than basic patching as it requires source changes. <br />
  • 24. Patch Collections <br />Patch Sets<br />Critical Patch Updates<br />Patch Set Updates<br />
  • 25. Patch Sets<br />Major collections of patches and source updates<br />Goes through extensive QA<br />Oracle Numbering<br />10.2.0.4.0<br />Version.Release.<reserved>.Patchset.PatchsetUpdate<br />Contains many hundreds of bug fixes<br />Available on all platforms, although timing may vary as the work required is enormous.<br />
  • 26. Critical Patch Updates<br />Quarterly releases of primarily security related patches<br />Again, extensively QA’ed<br />Included in Patch Set Updates<br />Now generally available on demand, rather than automatically<br />
  • 27. Patch Set Update<br />Policy Change on Patch Set Update (PSU)<br />beginning with the October 2009 Critical Patch Update release, Oracle will now deliver Patch Set Updates for all platforms on the release date incl zLinux.<br />What is a PSU and when is it provided?<br />PSU is a bundle of patches Oracle recommends to apply. It consists of CPU, Generic patch bundle, RAC patch bundle and Data Guard patch bundles<br />Quarterly released<br />Benefit for Linux on z Customers<br />Verified and tested before provided to the customer<br />Easy database maintenance<br />Recommended patches now also available for zLinux<br />Reduces problem situation and downtime. <br />What About Critical Patch Updates?<br />In the future Critical Patch Updates will only available on request via SR<br />
  • 28. Linux on Z particulars<br />Patch Set Updates are produced simultaneously with other platforms<br />One off patches/backports are produced according to the severity of the underlying issue, and thus at the same speed for all platforms.<br />Automated Patch Facility for Linux on Z now available – speeding up the patch process<br />Dedicated hardware for patch investigation and production<br />Dedicated Engineers for bug diagnosis.<br />
