OOW14 Session: SQL Tuning Without Trying

Many thanks to all those who attended my session "SQL Tuning without Trying" at Oracle Open World 2014 #oow14. I hope you found the session useful.

If you want to download the slide deck, here it is. As always, I would really, really like to hear from you.

OOW14 Session: Cache Fusion Demystified

Thank you all those who attended my session Cache Fusion Demystified.

As I mentioned, it was impossible to fit in a demo within that compressed 45 minute timeline. I put the details of the demo in a separate file with all the scripts and instructions that allows you to execute the demos at your own site.Download the slide deck as well as the scripts. In addition I have also written a whitepaper to explain the concepts clearer.

Download the slides, the paper, the demo scripts and instructions here.

I sincerely hope it demystified one of the most complex topics in Oracle RAC. As always, I would love to hear from you about your experience.
