Collaborate14 Session: Cache Buffer Chains Demystified

Thank you all for coming to my session Cache Buffer Chains Demystified at Collaborate 14, especially for sticking around for a geeky topic like this to the very end. Much appreciated.

I was not aware that I would not be allowed to use my laptop; so I couldn't show all the demos I so carefully prepared. Please download the scripts and execute them yourself.

As promised, here are the materials I used in the session

The Slide Deck
The Whitepaper
The Scripts (this is a zip file; so right click and Save As ...)

Needless to say, your comments and feedback will be highly appreciated. And, yes, please don't forget to do the evaluation on the Collab Mobile App.

Thank you all for coming to my session "The Art and Science of Tracing" at Collaborate 2014. As I mentioned, I prepared a full session even though this is supposed to be a quick tip. I hope you enjoyed it and get the value from the full presentation deck.

Collab14 Session Should You Drop Indexes in Exadata?

Thank you all those who attended my 8:30 AM session at Collaborate 14 "Should You Drop Indexes in Exadata" (Session 316). I will appreciate receiving your feedback and giving it on the IOUG website and mobile app.

Here are material I presented. I have the slides here; but I suggest you download the paper as it is more standalone in nature.
