    Using DevOps for an Oracle Data Warehouse
    December 8, 2016, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    Data Warehousing and many areas of analytics and performance management within the Oracle stack can take advantage of source control management, continuous integration, and DevOps processes. Though these historically database object artifact silos often find some means for cooperative development, migration, and release cycles, they do not necessarily meet standards proven and approved for standardized software development life cycles or agile deployments. Your Data Warehouse lifecycle management may not follow best practices or even align with the corporate standard for application development elsewhere within the organization. This session takes into account Data Warehousing design, development, and lifecycle management and provides a beginner’s introduction on how and where source control, continuous integration, and DevOps, can be used in an organization to better organize and develop within an Oracle Data Warehouse paradigm.

    • Christian Screen, Oracle Analytics Practice Manager, Datavail

    How to Develop Solutions When the Top "Event" is "DB CPU"
    January 4, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    Overall performance is less than ideal as far as the users are concerned. After months of meetings, management finally wants you to get involved. You run an AWR report for one of the most intense hours and notice the top “event” is "DB CPU," followed by "cursor: pin S wait on X.”

    This is where the webinar begins!

    Craig will demonstrate how to do an Oracle time based analysis, looking at the OS and also the “top” SQL. This journey also includes a trip into Oracle’s library cache, serialization control and some interesting ways to improve SQL statement performance.

    • Craig A. Shallahamer, President & Founder, OraPub - Oracle ACE Director

    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.
