If you’ve troubleshooted (or tuned) RAC then you probably already know Riyaj Shamsudeen and his Orainternals blog & website (links below).
Anyway, since I started delivering my Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting classes some years ago, many people asked whether I would do a similar class for RAC. I had deliberately left out the RAC-specific stuff from my troubleshooting material, because it’s a very wide and complex topic and I feel like before trying to master RAC troubleshooting, you should master troubleshooting of regular single instance databases anyway. I realized that I didn’t have the time to build (and maintain) yet another set of trainig material, especially on so complex topic as RAC performance & troubleshooting.
So, having seen Riyaj’s impressive work and his presentations at various conferences, I asked whether he would be interested in building a RAC troubleshooting class, going from fundamentals to advanced topics – and he said yes. By now we are that far that I’m happy to announce the first Advanced RAC online seminars by Riyaj Shamsudeen (split across two weeks of online sessions, 4-hours per day, in end of august and september).
We initially called the seminar “Advanced RAC Troubleshooting” but then realized, that there are some closely related non-troubleshooting topics to be covered, like fundamental concepts, internals and also how to configure RAC for performance (so that you wouldn’t have to troubleshoot performance later :-)
We’ll use the same infrastructure and seminar philosophy as I do in my own online seminars, it’s just that this is Riyaj’s material and he will deliver it too.
