  • High Profile: Written by some of the most widely-recognized Oracle experts in the world, and backed by the OakTable Network.
  • Long-lived: The authors have made a point of writing content that will almost certainly be valuable over the next several releases of Oracle Database.
This book is an anthology of effective database management techniques representing the collective wisdom of the OakTable Network. With an emphasis upon performance—but also branching into security, national language, and other issues—the book helps you deliver the most value for your company's investment in Oracle Database technologies. You'll learn to effectively plan for and monitor performance, to troubleshoot systematically when things go wrong, and to manage your database rather than letting it manage you.
