      Welcome to My Nightmare – The Common Performance Errors in Oracle Databases
      Presenter: Michael R. Ault, Quest Software

      Databases grow and change as new features are added and old ones removed or changed. However, even as things change, they remain the same in many respects. We still must index properly, set memory settings correctly and specify proper hardware. You would think that by now everyone would have a pretty good idea what an average configuration for an Oracle small, medium and large database would be, but unfortunately these classifications also undergo mutation. It wasn’t too long ago that if you used several hundred megabytes of disks you had a large database. Now of course large databases are in the terabyte and larger size range. This makes setting tuning guidelines for Oracle databases somewhat of a moving target where the rules change almost as fast as you can derive them.

      Given a changing environment for tuning Oracle is the only constant this presentation will outline the ! major issues found in the last few years while tuning several dozen different client databases in addition to methods for determining set points that take into account this changing beast that is Oracle.
