As my frequent readers know, I have promised to not travel anymore as it’s just too much hassle compared to the benefit of being “there”. This is why I’m going to fly to London on Monday, 18th April to speak at the UKOUG Exadata Special Event. This event is just too sexy to be missed, so I made an exception (the last one, I promise!)… and it’s probably going to be warmer there as well compared to where I am now :-)
I will be talking about what’s been my focus area for last year or so – Oracle Exadata Performance.
Dan Norris and Alex Gorbachev will be speaking there too, so it should end up being a pretty awesome event!
More details here:
My abstract is following:
In order to systematically troubleshoot and optimize Exadata performance, one must understand the meaning of its performance metrics.
This session provides a deep technical walkthrough of how Exadata IO and smart scans work and how to use relevant metrics for troubleshooting related performance issues. We will review both Exadata database and cell-level metrics, cell wait events and tools useful for troubleshooting. We will also look into metrics related to Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression and the cell Flash Cache usage.
P.S. The reason why I called this post “Exadata Training” is that you’ll learn some real world practical stuff there… as opposed to the marketing material (and marketing material copy material) overdose out there… ;-)
