Format: Paperback
I found it very helpful that this book also references 8.1.7 as well as 9i. The index, found in the back of the book, has several references to the SPFILE. It also has a detailed section on memory usage. Not only does this book give a summary of
Oracle Memory usage on Windows 2000, but goes into detail on how
to set up the boot.ini file when using 8i. Therefore, the reader
knows what 9i can do, and what it can't. This is very helpful
when tuning your database and deciding what version to upgrade to. It is obvious that the authors put a lot of research into this book.

I've found this book literally packed with useful information that I could hardly find anywhere else (apart from oracle's support web site, of course). The authors have taken the unusual route of choosing Windows as their reference platform. Not only they have succeeded with their endeavor, but they filled the book with tips & techniques that are really valuable in the Unix environment too.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good book, covering many Oracle features. You can find more info on setting up Advanced Replication, FailSafe, Standby Databases, Real Application Clusters than you can find in most of the other Oracle books on the market.
The book is dedicated to Windows platforms, but lot of the information is also applicable to other platforms. Definetly a 5-stars work for me.

By mhingram on January 13, 2002
Format: Paperback
I am always skeptical about using a book to resolve my issues. I like playing around and trying to figure it out for myself or if that fails asking around. However, I was in a bind, the Database I administer is a production 7 by 24 instance. It is not very big but, I can't just bounce it on a whim. I had a user who had created a lock on one of my tables. I did not want to bounce the instance as it takes a while to come back up. Unfortunately, the DB was running very slowly and I was getting user calls. I tried killing the session; it would just hang OEM or SqlPlus. What about orakill! Page 192 is forged into my memory now: step by step directions on tracking down the thread and killing it, all the while the instance stays up. Thanks guys it sure is nice having a practical book out there. I highly recommend it.
