    Explain the Explain Plan- Interpreting Execution Plans for SQL Statements – Part 1

    12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CT

    The execution plan for a SQL statement can often seem complicated and hard to understand. Determining if the execution plan you are looking at is the best plan you could get or attempting to improve a poorly performing execution plan can be a daunting task even for the most experienced DBA or developer. This two-part webcast series examines the different aspects of an execution plan, from cardinality estimates to parallel execution and explains what information you should be gleaming from the plan and how it affects the execution. It offers insight into what caused the Optimizer to make the decision it did as well as a set of corrective measures that can be used to improve each aspect of the plan. Part 1 covers the best techniques for generating an execution plan, understanding cardinality estimates and the different access and join methods. While part 2 covers join orders, partitioning and parallel execution.

    Meet the Speaker:
    Maria Colgan is a master product manager at Oracle Corporation and has been with the company since version 7.3 was released in 1996. Maria’s core responsibility is to advocate for the Oracle Database and the best practices for incorporating it into your environments.

        Oracle 19c: Performance Tuning

        10:00 AM – 12:00 PM CT

        Viscosity Online Training!  Join this lecture followed by a hands-on lab on SQL tuning.

        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.
