    How to Tell If There Is an OS Memory Shortage
    March 7, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    An operating system memory shortage can cause very strange and intense performance situations. In this webinar, we will explore different ways to tell if there is a memory shortage and how this affects Oracle processes. Using a simple shell script, Craig is moving towards slowing increase memory usage.

    Then, we will watch what is happening using the vmstat, iostat and sar commands. And of course, we will also be monitoring the active Oracle sessions, key SQL statement elapsed times and key throughput metrics. As you will see, a memory bottleneck (rather, memory pressure) can cause some really strange performance behavior.

    The Database Cloud Server (DCS): The Next Generation Appliance for Oracle Databases
    March 9, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    Vendita has developed a product known as the Database Cloud Server (DCS), an easy to deploy alternative to Oracle Engineered Systems. In this education focused presentation, key hardware and storage concepts critical to database servers are presented and explored in a way that makes sense to DBAs. This paves the way for attendees to learn about the capabilities of the DCS. The presentation makes a strong case for the DCS as an alternative to other systems of delivery for Oracle Database. This presentation also explores cloud concepts and the cloud capabilities that are made possible by the DCS.

    Learning Outcomes:

    1. Hardware and OS concepts that DBAs must know.
    2. Basic cloud concepts and paradigms and which are prevalent (per Forrester Research) for Oracle database servers.
    3. Logical Partitions (LPARs) vs. Bare Metal Servers, and how LPARS make cloud possible.
    4. How Oracle licensing costs can be drastically reduced, with budget impact.
