  Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, and this is especially true for those who use Oracle Discoverer and Oracle data mining for analyzing historical data and identifying significant correlations. Oracle professionals are now applying the techniques of predictive modeling to Oracle performance data and using the gold mine of information in STATSPACK and AWR to develop Oracle tuning models.

This paper will examine the types of data stored inside STATSPACK and AWR and examine techniques for trend identification and predictive modeling. Using these techniques Oracle professionals remove the guesswork from change to the Oracle instance and provide a framework for gathering evidence to justify database changes.

This is an indispensable presentation for any Oracle developer and DBA who assumes responsibility for making system-wide Oracle database changes

  Oracle 10g has greatly improved the wait event information in Oracle10g, providing the Oracle professional with an unparalleled opportunity for detecting and correct database bottlenecks. This presentation will show the internal structures of the ASH tables and highlight the important wait events within the tables. The attendee will see simple scripts for identifying the top wait events over time, and see how to quickly drill-down to find the cause of the bottleneck.

Best of all, this presentation will show how to perform time-series wait event analysis. Oracle bottlenecks are very transient and unique combinations of events create unique bottlenecks. This paper shows working scripts that are used in real-world Oracle 10g databases to detect repeating patterns of bottlenecks and show hidden events that are often too transient to see with real-time monitors. This presentation is indispensable for the Oracle professional who wants to know how to use ASH to automate the tedium of

  Oracle has always been very predictable and this presentation will explore Oracle’s long-term commitment to improving Oracle in the 21st Century. Combining Oracle new features with changes in technology, this dynamic presentation will explore how Oracle will change in the next decade. The presentation will explore the new technology movements such as server consolidation, the death of client-server and the new solid-state storage systems. We will also explore the new Oracle features and examine Oracle’s progress in automation, management and monitoring.

We will examine the use of artificial intelligence inside Oracle from its modest beginnings with Oracle Expert to the new Oracle diagnostic and recommendation engines. We will look at the evolution of Oracle monitoring from bstat-estat to the new 10g kernel-based monitors and speculate about the advances in future releases of Oracle.

  This presentation will explain the why and how of using regular expression with Oracle. Unix SAs know the power of matching with regular expression and now the Oracle DBA and Developer can put that power to use. But regular expressions are not the only (of even the best) answer in all situations. We will cover your regular expression options in SQL, PL/SQL and Java. While most DBAs do not use Java, it does provide a rich and powerful regular expressions capabilities that SQL and PL/SQL do not have. Improper use of regular expression can have a large negative impact on database performance. The presentation will explain the pros and cons of each method and when they can best be utilized to provide you with high performance matching capability.

  Oracle Database 10g has been built with utilities aimed solely at automating and simplifying routine database management tasks. The database has a built-in sophisticated self-management infrastructure to know more about its operation and provide solutions to avoid any potential problem during its operation. This is accomplished through various server components, which collects statistics automatically and provide feedback about resource utilization and performance. Using these advisors in Oracle Database 10g, the DBA can get a better insight about the database and its sub-components. This paper will give detailed knowledge on making the most of database advisors, insights on their operation, and optimize the time spent on performance tuning and maintenance efforts.

  Oracle Database 10g, next-generation database, is the industry's first designed for grid computing. Grid computing reduces the cost of IT by clustering servers together to act as a single large computer, dynamically shifting server resources between applications on demand. Daniel Liu, the co-author of Oracle 10g New Features for the DBA by Rampant TechPress, will introduce the new features in Oracle Database 10g Release 1&2. Those topics include: new initialization parameters, Automatic Storage Management (ASM), Cross Platform Transportable tablespaces, new SYSAUX tablespace, high-speed Data Pump utility, extended Flashback functions, RMAN enhancements, Column-level Virtual Private Database (VPD), database tuning and performance improvement, high availability improvements in Real Application Clusters (RAC), Data Guard, Oracle Streams, and more. The topics covered in this seminar are primary for the database administrators.

Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Venue/Room: Gaylord Opryland Resort - Canal A
Paper Num: 452
Abstract: Forget all the inferior Oracle tracing diagnostic tools. We’ve all used autot in SQL*Plus and the tried and true tkprof. These tools are useful in their own way but neither are as powerful as Trace Analyzer. Available only via a metalink download, this open source gem provides a gold mine of information to the Oracle technologist. This session will review everything that Trace Analyzer can do and compare it to the other well known trace file diagnostic tools.

Title: Secure your Oracle Database Infrastructure in Phases
Speaker: Nanda, Arup
 
Expertise: All
 
Focus Area: DBA
Date: Sunday, Apr 23, 2006
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Venue/Room: Gaylord Opryland Resort - Bayou A
Paper Num: U1
Abstract: Most DBAs are so absorbed in the day to day administration of the database that they tend to overlook some of the most imprtant elements - security being one. With today's environment with myriads of laws and regulations, security is not just a nice-to-have anymore, it's a requirement. So, how do you plan for a secure database infrastructure without being overwhelmed?

This calls for a phased approach. This session will show that tasks can be broken into four phases - done in a day, in a week, in a month and finally six months. At the end of each period, you will have accomplished almost everything that is needed for an acpetablly secured database. The attendees will learn from small matters such as the permission flags of the oracle executable to advanced topics like Virtual Private Database. Special emphasis will be placed on regulations such as HIPAA, SOX and GLBA. The courseware will include tear-away cheatsheets to help the attendees remember exactly what to do.

  Oracle has provided the ASM (automatic storage management) with its 10g database release two years ago. While many of us were on sidelines and began wondering if it is viable alternative for the traditional file systems, 10gR2 has added some more functionality with the release of command line interface and other enhancements. No doubt, ASM is here to stay.

This session discusses ASM role and utility. Especially for RAC implementation, think ASM as the clustered file system and volume manager in a box. The main objective of this session is to provide a practical guide for the use and management of the ASM. This session goes beyond the basics and covers some of the mainteance issues one could face while handling the ASM entities. It also discusses many best practices and considerations.
