SQLTXPLAIN (SQLT) Show and Tell at Hotsos Symposium

with one comment

I will have the honor to speak at the Hotsos Symposium 2013 next week. My session name is “Understanding SQLTXPLAIN (SQLT) Main Report by Navigating through Some Samples“. It is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5 at 8:30 am in room A.

I plan to cover my PPT in no more than 15 minutes, so I can dedicate 45 minutes to ad-hoc demo and simultaneous Q&A. SQLT is quite big, so in 45 minutes I cannot cover the full content of the main SQLT report, but I will cover for sure the parts we use more often.

If you have never seen SQLT this is a good opportunity to see what is all the buzz about it. If you know SQLT then you can learn even more, and ask ANY question you may have about it. I would love to see you there! And please, please: ask as many questions as you may have about this tool and how to use it to diagnose SQL statements performing poorly.

About Hotsos:

One more thing: if you are newbie in SQL Tuning or overall Oracle performance, you may want to know more about Hotsos and their annual Symposium.  In my opinion, this conference is the best of the best in the area of Oracle performance. I attended for the first time last year (2012) when I was accepted as a speaker. I was in awe all the time! So much knowledge in such a short time! I learned in 4 days more than in any class I have taken in my 17 years at Oracle. I also learned that most speakers have some really valuable nuggets to share with our Oracle community, and most important: speakers are so approachable! So, if you are attending for the first time, I hope you enjoy this symposium as much as I do. If you cannot attend this year, I hope you can attend next year! It is worth every cent and every minute of your time…

  1. Hey Carlos sorry to say not going to be able to make it the Symposium this time. I’ve looked and there are lots of really good speakers. Good luck with your SQLT presentation.
