ASHtools and Visualizations - Craig Shallahamer, OraPub
Oracle Ace Director, Craig Shallahamer, will be joining us this Wednesday to share his latest research into Oracle's ASH subsystem. He'll talk about when to use ASH vs. DB time-based analysis. We'll go into the cool new BloodHound tool he recently developed to simplify utilizing ASH data for your analysis. BloodHound has been added to his OSM Toolkit that you can download for FREE from the OraPub website. Craig will also be showing BloodHound's awesome Visualization tool that he developed using the Open Source "R" language. He'll download and install R as part of the demo so you'll be ready to go back to your office and setup BloodHound for your immediate use.
