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:
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.
