      DBA, Developer, & SA Finger Pointing: How improper Wait
      Event analysis leads to the database blame game!
      - presented by Confio Software
      ============================================================
       
      DATE: Thursday, April 20th
      TIME: 11:30 am
      PLACE: UAB, 15th St. Classroom
      LUNCH: Provided by Confio
      RSVP REQUIRED: Yes
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------
      Presentation Overview
      ---------------------------------------------------------
      In the last few years, the Oracle community has shifted away from count-based and ratio-based tuning to wait-event tuning. Unfortunately wait-event tuning is typically used incorrectly. This misuse of wait-events is a key reason why communication between DBAs and Developers often results in finger pointing during performance problems.
       
      This session covers when wait events can be deceiving or inconclusive. It also covers why many tools, like Oracle Statspack, display wait events improperly. In some cases, the results of incorrectly used wait events can mislead organizations to launch tuning or upgrade projects that will have little impact.
       
      The last part of the presentation will be a live demo of Ignite for Oracle that will include performance results achieved from Confio customers like Nike, ESPN, Seagate and Nationwide Insurance.
