Optimizer Master Class with Tom Kyte

Since its introduction in Oracle7 Database, people have been fascinated and intimidated by Oracle's cost-based optimizer and the statistics on which it relies. Some felt that the internals of the optimizer were shrouded in mystery and that a degree in wizardry was required to make the optimizer do the right thing. This one-day workshop explains the fundamentals of the cost-based optimizer and the statistics that feed it and provides a methodology for diagnosing and resolving SQL execution performance problems.

The workshop begins with an in-depth look at statistics and statistics maintenance, a challenge all DBAs must face in order to prevent suboptimal execution plans. This presentation includes information on the features introduced in Oracle Database 11g to improve the quality and efficiency of statistics gathering, as well as strategies for managing statistics in various database environments. These strategies include how to use dynamic sampling and when, and how to manually set statistics directly versus collecting them.

The workshop continues with a detailed explanation of how to interpret an execution plan. Kyte examines each aspect of an execution plan, from cardinality estimates to parallel execution, and shows you what information you should be gleaning from the plan and how it affects the execution.

After lunch the workshop focuses on the process of analyzing and resolving the most common SQL execution performance problems, including poor cardinality estimations, bind-peeking issues, and selecting the wrong access method. Clear how-to examples help you learn how to identify and quickly resolve these issues and develop a methodology to prevent them in the future.
