I’ve just realised that I haven’t been paying any attention to the number of visitors I’ve had over the last few months, so I missed the moment when I reached the next half million. The count has now reached 4,571,856 – probably hitting 4,500,000 around July 6th – so it’s time to do another of my little summary pages to see if new topics have become important and old topics have faded to insignificance.
In fact, the top five remain virtually unchanged, though 4th and 5th places have swapped over.

The figures for the previous half million views (opens in a new window) are very similar for most of the top 5, but “NOT IN” has finally lost its staying power (it’s actually down to 19th place for the year) though it may take some time to lose its position in the all-time listings, and “AWR reports” has dropped from 2nd place to 5th. The thing I find most interesting is the continuing interest in managing free space in tablespaces – despite the amount of time that locally managed tablespaces have been around and despite the claim that they should do away with the need to worry about tablespace “fragmentation”.
The number of followers has gone up from about 3,900 to nearly 5,400 but, as I’ve said before, I suspect that there’s a lot of double counting due to twitter.
