Join ODTUG and Viscosity for a hands-on virtual class that introduces upgrading to Oracle 19c. In this class, students will get hands-on experience with on how to tune your Oracle database 19c. 

We have a limited number of user IDs available for the hands-on lab, so be sure to register quickly as a "Hands-On Participant" or for the HOL Waiting List. Registration is unlimited for those interested in only watching/listening.

Oracle database upgrades often lead to performance related issues. This is due to the number of underlying technical changes in software, introduction of new features, and general enhancement of the products. With many 19c upgrades going on, it’s good to know how to use the many technical features in Oracle for dealing with or even eliminating performance issue. 

In this lab we will go through some of the basic skills that every DBA should have around performance tuning from enhance explain plans and gathering statistics to using SQL Plan Management. We will also cover the differences between SQL Baselines and SQL profiles. This session should be good if you are an experienced DBA just brushing up on your skills, or new to using Oracle database performance tuning tools.

An Hour dedicated for Database & Application Performance

An hour dedicated for Database & Application Performance


Session Abstract: When I started my career as an Oracle DBA, it was Oracle 8i which was just released. Since then, we have come a long way. Each version of Database introduced features aimed to improve the performance of an Application. This also means that many of these features are rarely used. In this 1 hour, let's talk about database performance and do's and don'ts for maintaining a Scalable Application. I will walk you all through some real-life examples on Database Indexing, SQL Optimization and Oracle Optimizer.

Maximize Oracle Database Appliance Benefits using KVM

Maximize Oracle Database Appliance Benefits using KVM

Session Abstract: The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of database solutions for organizations of every size. Optimized for the world's most popular database--Oracle Database--it integrates software, compute, storage, and network resources to deliver database services for a wide range of custom and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP), in-memory database, and data warehousing applications. ODA release 19.9 introduced full ODA tooling support for KVM. KVM-based virtualization complements ODA’s pay-as-you-grow (core licensing) feature and enables rapid deployment of applications in KVM, resulting in a “Solution-in-a-Box”. This Webinar will introduce ODA and show how to make the most of this optimized and yet easy-to-use platform using KVM virtualization.

At the time of this abstract submission, inter-application data transfer solutions are not possible using inter-pod data maps. The session will discuss a library of solutions implemented at clients for transferring between applications in separate pods. Each configuration has its own merits and use case. The four main categories that will be discussed are - 

   1.Trickle Feed - uses a combination of inter-pod REST API connection, data management load rule, groovy scripting and scheduled EPM Automate job on a jump server to pick-up the files from source and push to target. 

   2.Focused On-save Push - pushes an intersection from source to target using inter-pod REST API connection, data management load rule and groovy scripting. 

   3.Scheduled Push- uses a combination of windows or linux job, inter-pod REST API connection, groovy 
scripting, data management load rule and EPM Automate commands to extract and push data en masse from source 
to target. 

   4.Json Extract and Load - uses a combination of groovy scripting and inter-pod REST API connection to 
extract and push an intersection on-save. 

The audience will walk-away with learnings and understanding of inter-pod configurations, mainly for EPM Cloud planning applications. Snippets of code will form the "gold dust" takeaway from the session.
