Event Details

Mastering Oracle Trace Data

Oracle trace files explain in detail where your programs spend your time. With the right understanding and tools, they help you answer questions that you won’t answer any other way:

  • Why do your programs run for so long? Is there a problem in your database? Someplace else?
  • How much time should that program take? Is it efficient? Does it waste resources?
  • What performance changes will your users notice if you change something about your system?

Whether you’ve bought your software or built it yourself, trace files help you make better informed decisions about performance. They help developers optimize software as they build it, they help DBAs fix unexpected performance problems after you've gone live, and they help you avoid surprises during upgrades.

This course, designed and taught by Cary Millsap, is your fast track to becoming a trace file master. The course includes software licenses that you can use to solve real problems after the course.

Cary has the rare ability to teach complex topics in a manner that everyone can understand. He is innovative and entertaining, and he always challenges his audiences to think beyond the status quo.

Book cover               

Method R Software

In class, you will learn how to use Method R Trace and Method R Tools software, included with each enrollment. You may include Method R Profiler at a discounted price:

Method R Trace is our zero-click trace file collector for Oracle SQL Developer.

Method R Tools is a flexible and versatile utility suite that includes a trace file data mining tool, utilities for adjusting trace files, and more.

Method R Profiler shows exactly how your programs spend your time, using color and structure to guide your analysis.

Method R software licenses don’t expire, regardless of whether your enrollment package includes a software maintenance contract. A maintenance contract ensures that you will have access to design improvements, bug fixes, and upgrades for running with your most current operating systems and Oracle versions.

No other tools—free or commercial—come close to the precision and trustworthiness of Method R software.
