Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting in 60 minutes - Tanel Poder
We have another real treat for you at our January meeting. Oak Table author and Oracle ACE Director, Tanel Poder will give us insight into some of his advanced troubleshooting techniques. What to do when the Oracle Wait Interface isn't enough and Oracle itself doesn't know what it is doing? Tanel will be showing you the method he uses for approaching bugs, session hangs and performance problems where Oracle itself sometimes doesn't know what it's doing. If you've done much Googling on Oracle issues, you've no doubt came across mentions of Tanel's Snapper, LatchProf, MutexProf, and other utilities. Come hear from the author how to utilize these and other proven techniques.
