Solving or planning for performance issues is a core part of the database professional's toolkit. The Oracle database is very flexible, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Consequently, it is highly tunable, presenting a bewildering set of choices to the inexperienced. Tuning Oracle is as much about approach as about understanding the technology. It is more than tweaking parameters or following a set prescriptionit involves matching application-specific knowledge with what's happening inside the database. Based on author Christopher Lawson's long experience working with Oracle, The Art and Science of Oracle Performance Tuning book uses a five-step model to help identify and isolate the cause of nonperformance. This book shows you how to approach problems, get the information you need from Oracle, and follow the process through to success.
