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.
Thanks everyone who attended yesterday's webinar at AllThingsOracle.com.
I hope the technical difficulties with my new mic (which of course work flawlessly during several test runs) weren't too severe so that you could still understand what I said.
As usual when I do presentations in English it took me far too long so probably some of you missed the end of the session. If you did you may want to check the webinar recording once available at the webinar archive at AllThingsOracle.com, because we had a very good and extensive Q+A session with excellent questions asked.
Thanks again to AllThingsOracle.com and James Murtagh for hosting the event.

I'm normally hesitant to use the label "Best Practices" as I think things often get labeled as such and people forget to test and verify them in context of their own situations and end up creating as many problems as they attempt to solve. So my list of best practices doesn't include specific do's and don'ts. My list is more about how to approach SQL development with a strong emphasis on several key areas:
