Oracle SQL Tuning Masterclass


On a welcome return to Cork following his two sold-out sessions for it@cork last year, International Oracle author, trainer and expert, Dan Hotka, will illustrate coding techniques that ensure a consistent response time between instances and releases of the Oracle database. He focuses on performance tuning of actual SQL statements, as well as covering a variety of Oracle Server tuning topics.



Detailed Overview:

The course starts out with a complete overview of the Oracle architecture, so delegates can get an understanding how their SQL and applications can take advantage of the computing environment. It then moves to a discussion on the differences of the various Explain Plan steps such as Merge-Join and Nested-Loop, and when is it best to use each. Dan goes into considerable detail, with SQL examples, on how the optimizers (both rule and cost) make their decisions. Participants will work with a variety of SQL statements, reviewing explain plans and making changes to make these SQL statements perform better. Delegates will also experience how to monitor their application environment, and see how to find problem SQL in their applications.

This workshop includes a section on monitoring Oracle RDBMS and SQL via the v$ tables and TOAD and is packed full of scripts to discover a variety of issues.

The course utilizes a variety of current tools. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about TOAD and SQL Developer, as well as the Oracle tools like SQL*Plus, TKProf, and Stats Pack.
