Day 1 – Repairing Performance Problems

In 2003, Cary Millsap and Jeff Holt published a new method for diagnosing and repairing Oracle system performance problems efficiently (Optimizing Oracle Performance: O’Reilly). Users of what the book calls Method R (the “R” stands for “Response time”) routinely fix performance problems that had evaded repair (and sometimes even detection!) by other methods for months or more. This session demonstrates how Method R works and how people use it to diagnose and repair system performance problems in perfect alignment with business priorities. The case studies use Oracle diagnostic data specifically to show how even difficult performance problems relent quickly and permanently to the method.

Topics include:  

  • Why you can’t see your real performance problems
  • Method R
  • Profiling Oracle: how it works
  • Case studies
  • Tour of Oracle extended SQL trace data  

Day 2 – Preventing Performance Problems

After solving the important diagnostic problem, Cary and Jeff’s research turned to the subject of preventing such problems from occurring in the first place. The ultimate goal is a method through which you can always understand what your next performance problem will be so that you can diagnose and repair the problem before it ever actualizes as an end-user experience. This session summarizes the progress of their research so far.

Topics include:

  • What your business needs from your system
  • How you should measure performance
  • Matching workload and capacity
  • What you should be watching
  • Why things slow down under load
  • Cary Millsap’s “Magic of ‘2’” mistake

Day 3 – Instrumenting Applications for Performance 

The best way to make your application perform well is to instrument it while you’re designing and developing it. This session covers the motives for performance instrumentation in your application, and it covers strategies for meeting your performance management goals.

Topics include:

  • How to make your application easy to diagnose
  • The [Hotsos] Instrumentation Library for Oracle
  • Other instrumentation strategies
