[Pdns-dev] goracle backend documentation

There seem to be no concrete examples on how to use the "goracle" backend in the documentation, just this one pasus:

"Furthermore, use the goracle-tnsname setting to specify which TNSNAME the Generic Oracle Backend
	  should be connecting to. There are no goracle-dbname, goracle-host or
          goracle-port settings, their equivalent is in /etc/tnsnames.ora."

The problem is that "tnsnames.ora" on our systems is in a different location, and "TNSNAME" is not a variable Oracle pays attention to. How does configure "goracle" backend to use the correct "tnsnames.ora"?

Can anyone provide any working examples how to do this?

Furthermore, it is unclear from the documentation whether one should be using "oracle" or "goracle" backend. Which one is better?

(OpenDBX backend fails with "Out of memory" errors immediately, so perusing it is not an option.)
