Welcome to my blog on Oracle SQL Tuning!
The views expressed on this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Oracle.
It has been a while since I first thought on starting a blog on Oracle SQL Tuning. Over the past decade or so I have accumulated a lot of practical knowledge in this interesting area. Even when I keep sharing this knowledge with my fellow co-workers at Oracle, I always feel like I should expand my horizon to the larger community who is out there, dealing the same kind of issues that I do, re-discovering the hard way many things that we already know.
After an enlightening moment while participating as a speaker at the awesome Hotsos Symposium 2012, I decided to open up and reach out. I have been learning from others through their valuable blogs. Now it is time to pay back, and share with whoever is interested in Oracle SQL Tuning, whatever I have learned over the years.
Nothing that I post is Oracle confidential. I blog about what I have learned through others, through my own experience, and through carefully crafted test models that demonstrate how things actually work. I also blog about the tools that I have created over the years, and which I have made available to the Oracle community through My Oracle Support (MOS).
This place is a a friendly place. If you come here, I hope it is because you want to learn something new in the area of SQL Tuning, or you want to share something you learned. I will make mistakes, and I expect you to let me know if what I write seems to be wrong. I do my best to minimize the number of mistakes that I make, but I am far from perfect. I always welcome feed-back.
With all that said, I truly welcome you to this place.
Cheers — Carlos Sierra
