Optimizing Oracle Performance

Part Number:

 Cary Millsap, lead author of Optimising Oracle Performance, dispenses with database-centric metrics and instead shows how to use Oracle's response time statistics to diagnose performance problems in an Oracle application system. Former VP of Oracle's System Performance Group, Cary Millsap, clearly shows how eliminating requests for unneeded work improves performance dramatically. He also shows how the mathematical discipline of queueing theory can be combined with response time metrics to accurately predict the impact of system changes and upgrades. This is the timesaving method Oracle DBAs and developers have been waiting for.
