Written by Craig Shallahamer, noted Oracle capacity-planning expert
Meshes well with the latest performance optimization trends in the Oracle community
Forecasting Oracle Performance is the first Oracle-specific book to assist DBAs with forecasting future performance of new and existing database systems. Because most Oracle performance optimization books on the market focus on troubleshooting acute problems like a poorly performing report, this excludes another important part of the picture: forecasting. Will the current hardware last the year? What happens when you merge the employees from a newly acquired company? Will the current system keep up with the demands of a new application? These are strategic questions that DBAs are expected to answer.
Of all the problems that an Oracle DBA has to worry about, performance issues often produce the most stress. This book shows you how to create a model of a database system. Different types of models are introduced: mathematical, simulation, and benchmark. You'll learn how to create the right model for the risks you seek to mitigate and how to validate your model. Then you'll discover how to interpret results in the form of a forecast. In total, this book gives you everything you need to confidently work with business management in preparing for the future of your systems.
