“tail -f” vs “tail -F”: Do you know the difference?

Hi all!
Do you know the difference between “tail -f” and “tail -F”?


Ok, don’t feel bad. It’s very difficult to find someone who knows… And with a reason, I can’t find any link explaining this by Googling.
It’s possible that I don’t know how to search it too. But I searched as I’d search if I didn’t know that… And couldn’t find anything about…

Let’s take a look on –help, so:

Avoiding lost messages in JDBC Persistent Store, when processing Global Transactions with JMS.

   A few months ago, i had a problem in Persistence Store of JMS queues, soon after perform server restart, I get error from persistence store to recover message:

weblogic.store.PersistentStoreFatalException: [Store:280064]invalid handle 55981 (server="EVENTS01" store="JDBCStore_3022" table="JDBCStore_3022WLStore"),

   To resolve this problem, just add this parameter on server startup arguments:

 -Dweblogic.store.StoreBootOnError = true

   With this parameter, the server starts with OK status in WebLogic 11g and with FAILED status in Weblogic 12c, but in both the processing of the messages continues when active,
to remove FAILED status in Weblogic 12c, just need to truncate persistence table in database and restart server (This solution can be found in Oracle Docs).

   This solution did not solved my problem, because I can’t lost or delete messages.

Let’s go analyse the problem:

Review GUORS 2016!

On the last July 6th, happened at Pontifícia Universidade Católica – RS (PUCRS), the first Oracle users Group GUORS (Grupo de Usuários Oracle do Rio Grande do Sul) event of the year.


It is such a nice initiative from the hosts to gather a lot of Oracle Professionals from different areas to discuss about different subjects.

For this one we had the following schedule:

RHEL7: rc.local service not starting

It’s very common to automate application startup in rc.local on Linux systems.

Was testing Red Hat 7.2 (Maipo), and found that apps was’t started.

Found this on some Red Hat blog: 

Systemd is a system and service manager for Linux operating systems. It is designed to be backwards compatible with SysV init scripts, and provides a number of features such as parallel startup of system services at boot time, on-demand activation of daemons, support for system state snapshots, or dependency-based service control logic. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, systemd replaces Upstart as the default init system.”

On default /etc/rc.local comes useful info:

# It is highly advisable to create own systemd services or udev rules
# to run scripts during boot instead of using this file.
# In contrast to previous versions due to parallel execution during boot
# this script will NOT be run after all other services.
# Please note that you must run ‘chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local’ to ensure
# that this script will be executed during boot.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local

Then, this ‘chmod’ turns rc.local enable during system startup.


To familiarize this new feature:
