Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those publications that should be on the shelf of every Oracle DBA who wants to know more about performance tuning and importantly, how to diagnose and respond to performance bottlenecks. Oracle trace data can be intimidating and obscure - on a good day. Cary's book talks through the mechanics, semantics and nuances of interpreting this data to make sense of it and how it pertains to your application SQL.
Highly recommended.

This book is a MUST for the hard working database administrator who has to troubleshoot performance without the benefit of Oracle Tuning and Diagnostics pack. It would also be good for those DBAs who rely too heavily on tools like OEM to get a new perspective on a different method of tuning.

If you have read "Optimizing Oracle Performance" then this is a great follow up. If you haven't read "Optimizing Oracle Performance" then this is a great place to start. This book is another great work from Cary Millsap. It is written in a logical and flowing manner that builds concepts and ideas through examples. I liked the explain, show and understand style of presentation. The scientific style and presentation is easily read without getting buried in the theory. This book is very practical and lessons learned from this book are very real life. Don't be fooled by the trend to all memory databases . . . being able to understand and "Thinking Clearly about Performance" is an essential skill.
