While find is no doubt one of the most popular as well as powerful command line utilities for file searching in Linux, it not fast enough for situations where-in you need instantaneous results.If you want to search a file on your system through the command line, and speed is the top most priority, then there's another command that you can use: Locate.Topics: All patching of Oracle Database Appliance is done using the quarterly Oracle Database Appliance patch bundle.Oracle Database Appliance patch set release includes enhancements and fixes.If FLAG is 0 or no, locate(1) outputs the database entries even if the user running locate(1) could not have read the directory necessary to find out the file described by the database entry.If FLAG is 1 or yes (the default), locate(1) checks the permissions of parent directories of each entry before reporting it to the invoking user.
For older patches that only install on a single node, you must run the command About Oracle Database Appliance Software Updates To keep Oracle Database Appliance running with the latest software, check for and apply Oracle Database Appliance patch bundles when they are released.
The main issue is that after every new file or directory is created on the system, you need to update the tool's database for it to work correctly.
Otherwise, the command will not be able to find files/directories that are created after the last database update.
It actually refers a database (prepared by ) to find what user is looking, and based on that search, produces its output.
While this is a good approach, it has its share of drawbacks.
