About this product Synopsis Optimizing Oracle Performance dispenses with database- centric metrics and instead focuses on the issue of analyzing the database’s response time to all of the different sorts of requests made of it. Former VP of Oracle’s System Performance Group, Cary Millsap, clearly shows how eliminating requests for unneeded work improves performance oraclw.


Cary also shows how the mathematical discipline of queuing theory can be applied to remove the guesswork, frustration, and expense associated with determining the true root cause of any type of performance problem.

Oracle system performance inefficiencies often go undetected for months or even lracle under intense scrutiny–because traditional Oracle performance analysis methods and tools are fundamentally flawed.

They’re unreliable and inefficient.

Oracle DBAs and developers are all too familiar with the outlay of time and resources, blown budgets, missed deadlines, and marginally effective performance fiddling that is orzcle with traditional methods of Oracle performance tuning.

In this crucial book, Cary Millsap, former VP of Oracle’s System Performance Group, clearly and concisely explains how to use Oracle’s response time statistics to diagnose and repair performance problems.

Milleap also shows how “queueing theory” can be applied to response time statistics to predict the impact of upgrades and other system changes. Optimizing Oracle Performance eliminates the time-consuming, trial-and-error guesswork inherent in most conventional approaches to tuning. You can determine exactly where a system’s performance problem is, and with equal importance, where it is not, in just a few minutes–even if the problem is several years old.

Optimizing Oracle Performance cuts a path through the complexity of current tuning methods, and streamlines an approach that focuses on optimization techniques that any DBA can use quickly and successfully to make noticeable–even dramatic–improvements. For example, the one thing database oltimizing care most about is response time.


Naturally, DBAs focus much of their time and effort towards improving response time. But it is entirely too easy to spend hundreds of hours to improve important system metrics such as hit ratios, average latencies, and wait times, only to find users are unable to perceive the difference. And an expensive hardware upgrade may not help either.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Technological advances have added impact, efficiency, measurability, predictive capacity, reliability, speed, and practicality to the science of Oracle performance optimization. Optimizing Oracle Performance shows you how to slash the frustration and expense associated perfoormance unraveling the true root cause of any type of performance problem, and reliably predict future performance.
