2-Day seminar with Tanel Poder

This seminar is concentrated entirely on Oracle troubleshooting – understanding what exactly is Oracle doing right now or what was it doing when the problem occurred. You will gain the skill to systematically work out the reasons for crashes, hangs, bad performance or other misbehavior.

The seminar takes a holistic approach for end-to-end troubleshooting. It will explain the full lifecycle of a database request, from database client libraries and network to Oracle database kernel and underlying OS. For each layer a troubleshooting technique is provided, along with advice on using the right tool for the right problem at the right time.

The two days are full of intensive learning, reading dumps, stack traces, network packet captures and Oracle SGA directly. You’ll be using debuggers and custom tools provided to you for real-time and post-mortem diagnosis.

The emphasis is put on production troubleshooting - safety comes first and the techniques are designed to require no change to database schemas or instance parameters.

The skills that you will learn during the seminar will allow you to reduce the troubleshooting time, to prevent similar issues in the future - all while keeping the risk of occasional downtime low.
