DOAG 2015 - "Oracle 12c Parallel Execution New Features" presentation material

Thanks to the many attendees that came to my presentation "Oracle 12c Parallel Execution New Features" at the DOAG conference 2015. You can download the presentation material here in Powerpoint of PDF format, as well as check the Slideshare upload.

Note that the Powerpoint format adds value in that sense that many of the slides come with additional explanations in the notes section.

My Oracle OpenWorld 2013 Presentations

Oracle OpenWorld was fantastic, as usual. The best show in San Francisco. This is the seventh year in a row that I’m attending – 3 times as HP employee, 3 times as Pythian employee, and now as a Clouderan. My life changes, but the event and people are always fantastic.

There will be a separate blogpost about what I learned at the event, new exciting products and my thoughts of them. But first, let me follow up on what I taught.

DOAG 2012 Conference

This is just a friendly reminder that I'll be talking at this year's DOAG Oracle conference about "Cost-Based Optimizer Basics" on Thursday, the 22nd of November, "Raum 1" at 13:00.

Additionally, I've reserved a slot at the "Unconference" (15:00 the same day) where I plan to present some of the interesting stuff that I cover as part of my "Parallel Execution Masterclass".

And soon the technical content will be back at this blog where I have lots of interesting stuff in the pipeline, mainly covering Parallel Execution topics.

DOAG 2012

This year again I'm going to present at the DOAG 2012 conference in November. Since it is a popular topic I decided to talk about "Cost-Based Optimizer Basics" there, too. According to the official schedule the presentation will take place on Thursday, the 22nd of November, "Raum 1" at 13:00.

Like last year, I'll also try to do some Unconference sessions in addition - if it is going to take place, which I don't know yet.

I'll post some updates as soon as I know more details.

"Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting - Live Session" presentation details

As promised during my recent public appearances at SIOUG, DOAG and UKOUG here are the presentation details for my "Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting - Live Session", in particular the scripts used for this session.

You can download the presentation slides here, and the scripts archive here.

The scripts archive contains again the presentation slides, along with two subdirectories, one containing the demo scripts used in the presentation, and another subdirectory with the tools demonstrated for troubleshooting.

There is a README file in the top directory of the archive that explains the prerequisites and the installation steps along with other details that are required for reproducing the demos, in particular which scripts need to be modified depending on the configuration and environment.

Each script is documented with a header comment that explain further details where required.

You can use the presentation slides to see which scripts have been used for demonstration by checking the script names on the corresponding "Demo Time!" slides.

Happy troubleshooting!

RMOUG Presentations

Like many other DBAs, I’ll be attending RMOUG training days conference on Feb 17-18 in Denver. I’ll give two presentations in the conference. On the same day, just thinking about it makes me exhausted.

The first presentation is “Everything DBAs need to know about TCP/IP Networks”. Here’s the paper and the slides. I’ll also present this at NoCOUG’s winter conference in Pleasanton, CA. Maybe you prefer to catch me there.

The second presentation is “Analyzing Database Performance using Time Series Techniques”. Here’s the paper and the slides.

I still have time to improve the presentations and papers – so comments are very welcome :)

SIOUG 2009 conference

I'll be presenting at the SIOUG 2009 conference that will take place in Portoroz, from 20th to 23rd September 2009.

The title of the presentation will be "CBO fundamentals: Understanding the different modes of System Statistics" and will be based on the series already available here on my blog.

So if you're interested in the details of the cost calculations performed by the recent releases of the Cost Based Optimizer and would like to here about this in a different style, this presentation might be something for you.

If you happen to be at the conference I'm looking forward to meeting you there.

Thanks to OakTable fellow Joze Senegacnik for inviting me to the conference.
