It's webinar time again.
Join me on Wednesday, May 8th at AllThingsOracle.com for an overview session on the specifics of Oracle Parallel Execution.
The session starts at 16:00 UK (17:00 Central European) time. The webinar is totally free and the recording will made available afterwards.
Here's the link to the official landing page where you can register and below is the official abstract:
Embarcadero is sponsoring another Oracle Community webinar on
January 29 (rescheduled) February 5 conducted by yours truly. Register for Understanding Oracle Optimizer Statistics and join me as I cover
Just a couple of announcements:
1. I had the message already a couple of days added to the "Upcoming Public Appearances" sidebar on the right hand side of this page, now the official home page is available and registration open for the "CBO Days" at Trivadis 11th and 12th December in Zurich.
Join Mohamed Zait (Manager of the Query Optimizer Group at Oracle), Maria Colgan (Senior Principal Product Manager at Oracle), Jonathan Lewis, Jože Senegačnik, Christian Antognini and myself for two days fully focused on the Cost-Based Optimizer. You will not only learn about the history and present, but also the future of this very important Oracle Database component.
2. Oracle University is going to organize my one day master class "Mastering Parallel Execution" from December on.
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.
You can find the recording here and the presentation slide deck here.
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
Thanks everyone who attended my last webinar at AllThingsOracle.com.
The recording of the webinar and all scripts used during the live demos are now available for download.
The README.TXT contains a description of the scripts used - there are a couple of helper scripts along with the main scripts, so that should allow you understanding which scripts you need to use for reproducing the issues demonstrated.
Furthermore the README contains links to some of the resources on the Internet that address questions that were raised during the Q+A session.
Thanks again to AllThingsOracle.com and James Murtagh for hosting the event.
Thanks to everyone who joined me for part 1 of my Oracle SQL Performance webinar series! Embarcadero will be posting the recording within the next few days. In the meantime, I thought I'd post the slides and a few scripts that were shown.
Thanks again and I hope to see you again next month for part 2!
In a couple of days, on Wednesday, 1st of August, I'll be presenting another free webinar hosted at AllThingsOracle.com.
Although it is called "Oracle Cost-Based Optimizer Advanced Session", don't be mislead by the title.
It is not a truly "advanced" session, but rather I'll try to delve into various topics that I could only mention briefly or had to omit completely during the first webinar on the Cost-Based Optimizer.
In principle it's going to be a selection of the most recurring issues that I come across during my consultancy work:
- I'm going to spend some time on statistics and histograms in particular and what I believe are the most important aspects to understand regarding them
Please join me for another Embarcadero sponsored Community Webinar on July 31. This is the first in a series of three webinars. My topics for this triple feature are:
Thanks to everyone who attended my webinar sponsored by Red Gate and All Things Oracle. My topic was "How to Gather SQL Resource Consumption Metrics in Oracle". The webinar recording has been posted at AllThingsOracle as of May 9 but I thought I'd also make the materials available here for anyone interested. In the zip file, you'll find a PDF of the presentation slides, several example reports (ASH, AWR, SQL Monitor) as well as several scripts I used and a text file containing all the demo queries and output.
So to wrap this up, the webinar recording (this time hosted on YouTube, the recording available from the webinar archive is hosted somewhere else) along with the webinar material for download is now officially available on AllThingsOracle.com.
I suggest that if you still have any questions regarding this webinar then you can comment on the post over there and I'll try to address them.
If you interested in more stuff like that, then stay tuned as there are more of them planned covering many of the aspects that I deliberately left out or mentioned only briefly in this basic introduction.
