Diagnosing & Resolving Contention Problems in Oracle 10g

Date:  Thursday 24th August 2006
Time:  10:00 am - 11:00 am (BST)

As businesses grow and more Oracle concurrent users are added, there is inevitable contention as users compete for data resources. These users are either forced to wait for each other, greatly reducing productivity, or risk reading inconsistent data due to in-progress changes. This trade-off between correctness and throughput is critical, and can have a major impact on Oracle 10g performance.

In this Webcast we will discuss a methodology for the diagnosis and resolution of Oracle 10g contention problems.

Optimising Oracle RAC

Date:  Thursday 14th September
Time:  10:00 am – 11:00 am (BST)

Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) technology allows for the creation of high end Oracle databases on clusters of commoditised hardware.  Oracle RAC increases scalability and availability of the database while lowering the costs of IT assets.  However, adopting RAC involves many new challenges, not the least of which is determining that an application will run effectively on RAC and learning new skills for discovery and resolution of RAC-related performance bottlenecks.
In this presentation, Oracle expert Guy Harrison, author of Oracle SQL High Performance Tuning (Prentice Hall) and creator of Quest’s Spotlight on Oracle RAC product will provide an overview of Oracle RAC optimisation, including:

  • The fundamentals of the Oracle RAC architecture
  • How to determine if an application will scale on an Oracle RAC system
  • The three fundamental RAC-related system bottlenecks
  • How to gather cluster-wide statistics 
  • How Quest’s Spotlight on RAC product can assist in optimising your RAC investment
