Winning Performance Challenges in Oracle Standard Editions

Last week (on October 4th) I presented a webinar for IOUG titled "Winning Performance Challenges in Oracle Standard Editions". For those who missed the webinar a recording is available here: http://www.ioug.org/p/cm/ld/fid=153

Oracle Diagnostics and Tuning packs offer comprehensive valuable performance diagnostics and tuning features such as: AWR, ADDM, ASH, ASH Analytics, etc. These optional packs can be licensed only on top of the Oracle Enterprise Edition. Without these packs, diagnosing performance issues may become a very complex task – even for advanced DBAs. In this session we will explore how you could leverage Oracle’s Statspack report and dictionary views to diagnose performance issues even without using any expensive editions and packs.  In addition we will see how Quest tools can help DBAs to diagnose and solve even the most complex performance issues without relying on the Diagnostics and Tuning packs and for all the Oracle Database editions.

RMOUG 18 Slide Decks - Now Available

Hi everybody,

This week I attended the RMOUG (Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group) conference in Denver, Colorado. It was my first time attending RMOUG and I must say that although it's not a very big event (I think around 350 attendees), I was very impressed by the quality of the event and the great content which was presented by very good speakers. I highly recommend it to anybody who considers attending next year's RMOUG. It's a great place to network, learn, and have fun.

I presented 2 sessions. The slide decks are now available:

I'd like to thank everybody who attended my sessions! Hope to see you again next year.

ILOUG Tech Days 2018 Summary

Last week, ILOUG (Israel Oracle User Group) hosted an awesome Oracle conference in Israel which included 30 Oracle speakers from 9 countries and 45 different sessions.
This event was organized by Ami Aharonovich, Zohar Elkayam, and Oren Nakdimon, all good friends and Oracle ACEs.
It was a very well organized event, and awesome content which was delivered by 19(!) Oracle ACEs. In addition, there was a presence of Oracle Product Management as both Maria Colgan and Gerald Venzl attended and delivered several great sessions including an Oscar-candidate show of the IT Wars (DBA vs. Developer).
Also worth mentioning, Chris Saxon from Oracle presented an awesome SQL magic show :)

My session was about overcoming performance challenges when consolidating (pluggable) databases into a single Multitenant container. You can download my presentation here: https://www.slideshare.net/PiniDibask/winning-performance-challenges-in-oracle-multitenant

Thank you everyone who joined my session, and hope to see you again next year!

My Upcoming Speaker Events in H1 2018

Hi everybody,

I'd like to share with you the plans for my upcoming speaking activities for the first half of 2018:

  • Israel Oracle User (ILOUG) Group Tech Days 2018 (Jan 22-23) - Very excited to present a session in one of the best Oracle conferences that ever took place in my country. I will be presenting a session titled "Winning Performance Challenging in Oracle Multitenant" on January 23rd about how to effectively monitor and diagnose performance issues in Oracle Multitenant environments and if needed implement resource management plans to ensure high QoS (Quality of Service) for the pluggable databases.
  • Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group (RMOUG) Training Days (Feb 20-22) - This will be my first time attending (and speaking) at this event. I will deliver 2 sessions:
    • "Winning Performance Challenging in Oracle Multitenant"- similar to the one I will be presenting at ILOUG
    • "Oracle Database Locking Mechanism Demystified" - In this session I will be talking about the concepts of Oracle Database locking mechanism, advanced locking scenarios, best practices to avoid performance issues which relate to blocked SQLs, and ways to investigate lock issues using Oracle dictionary views and performance monitoring tools
  • Independent Oracle User Group (April 22-26) - IOUG Collaborate is definitely my favorite Oracle Conference in the world - it's a combination of great location and very technical presentations. I got accepted to present the following sessions:
    • ASM Concepts, Architecture and Best Practices - Since it was introduced back in 2003 with Oracle 10g, ASM became an essential part of almost every Oracle DBA's life. In this session you will learn ASM from A to Z - starting with the basic concepts of the ASM all the way to the new features of ASM and important best practices that will help you increase the performance and stability of your Database environments.
    • Oracle Data Guard for Beginners - Oracle Data Guard is one of the most important options in the Oracle Database as it allows organizations to ensure high availability, data protection, and disaster recovery for their Oracle database environments. In this session we'll review Oracle Data Guard solution from A to Z.

I invite you all to my sessions and looking forward to meeting you there!
