My next Embarcadero sponsored webinar will be on May 14 and is entitled Using Optimizer Hints for Oracle Performance Tuning.
Thanks everyone who attended the 3rd segment of my 3-part DBA Performance webinar series. I enjoyed delivering them and hope you found them informative and useful.
There were two SQL statements in the deck that were used to produce execution plan output (either using dbms_xplan.display_cursor or dbms_sqltune.report_sql_monitor). So you won't have to type them if you want to use them, here they are:
-- SQL to produce execution plan using dbms_xplan.display_cursor
Join me on Wednesday, September 26 as I present a webinar entitled "Making Impactful Performance Changes". This is the final segment in the 3-part DBA Performance Series sponsored by Embarcadero. Register even if you can't make it and you'll get an email with the link to the webcast video after it's over.
In this webinar, I'll cover
During last week's webinar, there were several questions that I did not have a chance to answer so I wanted to follow-up by answering those questions here. I also wanted to provide links to previous webinar recordings as many people had asked where to find them.
Best Practices for Developing Optimally Performing SQL
Diagnosing SQL Performance Problems (Part 1 of 3 part series)
Making SQL Performance Solutions Stick (Part 2 of 3 part series)
The first question I wanted to address was something I provided an answer to but an audience member provided a follow-up that I wanted to comment on after having a chance to do some research.
Thanks again to everyone who attended part 2 of my Oracle SQL Performance webinar series entitled Making SQL Performance Solutions Stick. Embarcadero will be posting the recording within the next few days. In the meantime, I have uploaded the slides and scripts.
Thanks again and don't forget about the final installment in the series coming next month on September 29 entitled Making Impactful Performance Changes.
I hope to see you then!
There are many questions from few of my clients about asmlib support in RHEL6, as they are gearing up to upgrade the database servers to RHEL6. There is a controversy about asmlib support in RHEL6. As usual, I will only discuss technical details in this blog entry.
ASMLIB is applicable only to Linux platform and does not apply to any other platform.
Now, you might ask why bother and why not just use OEL and UK? Well, not every Linux server is used as a database server. In a typical company, there are hundreds of Linux servers and just few percent of those servers are used as Database servers. Linux system administrators prefer to keep one flavor of Linux distribution for management ease and so, asking clients to change the distribution from RHEL to OEL or OEL to RHEL is always not a viable option.
Do you need to use ASMLIB in Linux?
Just a quick note, I will be presenting on “Truss, pstack, pmap, and more” talking about advanced UNIX utilities and how it can be utilized to understand inner working of an application or even Oracle Database Engine.
My timeslot is between 2:15 and 3:15 in Room 2016.
Uploading presentation files. Thanks for attending at OOW12.
