704: New Tuning Features in Oracle 11g – How to make managing your database free of stress
Penny Cookson , Sage Computing Services    Biography

Objectives: Familiarise the attendees with new tuning functionality in Oracle 11g
Provide an assessment of the effectiveness and best use of the new features and some tricks/ traps
Allow the attendees to determine whether the features are appropriate for their Oracle environments
Abstract: One of the key problems that has haunted Oracle sites since the introduction of the cost based optimiser is the ability to provide a stable level of performance over time. The very responsiveness of the CBO to factors such as changes in statistics and initialisation parameters can lead to sudden changes in performance levels. Oracle 11g introduces a number of features that will assist the DBA in providing a stable environment for mission critical applications. Excitement is for out of work time, not for managing production databases. The presentation will discuss the best use of these new tuning features to reduce the stress levels of DBAs.
