A Tour of the Oracle Database block
April 14 @ 12:30 - 13:30Free
Session Abstract: A look inside an Oracle block, the fundamental unit of the Oracle Database. We’ll see how a block is constructed, and how the components inside the block are used by the database to provide performance and concurrency. Unlike a typical internals deep-dive, this session will be more focused on how this internals related back to real-world use cases, such as how queries work, storage optimization, and application locking.
