Last week I presented at the UKOUG’14 conference on instrumenting, analyzing, & tuning the Performance of Oracle ADF Applications. Instrumentation refers to an ability to monitor or measure the level of a product’s performance, to diagnose errors and to write trace information.

The UKOUG user group conference is one conference I have wanted to get to for a long time, but never managed to before. This year, with the change in job roles to being a database architect in the DBaaS team within the Enterprise Manager product management group, I finally got the go ahead to submit some papers.

Those of you that have been around Oracle for some time may already be aware of the various OTN tours.

It’s taken me some time to get back to the promised followup blog post on setting up Chargeback, what with Oracle Open World getting in the way of things, but that’s what I’m finally doing now.
Chargeback can be setup in EM12c by any user with the EM_CBA_ADMIN role, or (more...)
Many thanks to all those who attended my session "SQL Tuning without Trying" at Oracle Open World 2014 #oow14. I hope you found the session useful.
If you want to download the slide deck, here
it is. As always, I would really, really like to hear from you.
Yet again the monster that is Oracle Open World is about to take over San Francisco. I won’t be making it this year, but considering we had something like 60,000 attendees last year I’d hate to see what the numbers are gonna be this year!
To try and make it a little easier for you to find all the Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management with EM12c material, here are the ones I know about. If (more...)
