Read below a brief synopsis of each webinar:

Oracle Indexing Internals

This is a must attend webinar of benefit to not only DBAs, but also to Developers, Solution Architects and anyone else interested in designing, developing or maintaining high performance Oracle-based applications. It’s a fun, but intense, content rich webinar that is suitable for people of all experiences (from beginners to seasoned Oracle experts).

Indexes are fundamental to every Oracle database and are crucial for optimal performance. However, there’s an incredible amount of misconception, misunderstanding and pure myth regarding how Oracle indexes function and should be maintained. Many applications and databases are suboptimal and run inefficiently primarily because an inappropriate indexing strategy has been implemented.

This webinar examines most available Oracle index structures/options and discusses in considerable detail how indexes function, how/when they should be used and how they should be maintained. A key component of the webinar is how indexes are costed and evaluated by the Cost Based Optimizer (CBO) and how appropriate data management practices are vital for an effective indexing strategy. It also covers many useful tips and strategies to maximise the benefits of indexes on application/database performance and scalability, as well as in maximising Oracle database investments. Much of the material is exclusive to this webinar and is not generally available in Oracle documentation or in Oracle University courses.

Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning

This is a must attend webinar aimed at Oracle professionals (both DBAs and Developers) who are interested in Performance Tuning.  The webinar details how to maximise the performance of both Oracle databases and associated applications and how to diagnose and address any performance issues as quickly and effectively as possible.

When an application suddenly runs “slow” or when people start complaining about the “poor performance” of the database, there’s often some uncertainty in how to most quickly and most accurately determine the “root” cause of any such slowdown and effectively address any associated issues. In this seminar, we explore a Tuning Methodology that helps Oracle professionals to both quickly and reliably determine the actual causes of performance issues and so ensure the effectiveness of any applied resolutions.

Looking at a number of real world scenarios and numerous actual examples and test cases, this webinar will show participants how to confidently and reliably diagnose performance issues. The webinar explores in much detail the various diagnostics tools and reports available in Oracle to assist in determining any database performance issue and importantly WHEN and HOW to effectively use each approach. Additionally, participants are also invited to share their own database/SQL reports, where we can apply the principles learnt in diagnosing the performance of their actual databases/applications.

One of the more common reasons for poor Oracle performance is inefficient or poorly running SQL. This seminar explores in much detail how SQL is executed within the Oracle database, the various issues and related concepts important in understanding why SQL might be inefficient and the many capabilities and features Oracle has in helping to both resolve SQL performance issues and to maintain the stability and reliability of SQL execution.

It’s a fun, but intense, content rich webinar that is suitable for people of all experiences (from beginners to seasoned Oracle experts).

As promised last week, I have now finalised the dates for my upcoming webinars.

They will be run as follows (UPDATED):

Oracle Indexing Internals Webinar: 8-12 August 2022 (between 09:00 GMT and 13:00 GMT daily)

Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning Webinar: 22-25 August 2022 (between 09:00 GMT and 13:00 GMT daily)

Special Combo Price for both August 2022 Webinars” 

I’ll detail costings and how to register for these events in the coming days.

 

There is already quite a waiting list for both of these webinars and so I anticipate available places will likely go quickly. Sorry to all those who have been waiting for so long and thank you for your patience. Please note for those on the waiting list, I already have places reserved for you.

It’s highly likely these will be the last time I’ll ever run these highly acclaimed training events (yes, I’m getting old)…

So don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn important skills in how to improve the performance and scalability of both your Oracle based applications and backend Oracle databases, in the comfort of your own home or office.

It’s been one hell of a hectic year!!

For all those of you who have been patiently hanging on for the next series of my webinars, I finally, at long last, have some good news.

I’m currently just finalising my calendar for the upcoming months, but I shall announce the next running of my webinars next week.

I plan to run both of my webinars in the coming months (follow links for full details on each webinar):

 

Note: There is the very distinct possibility that I will be running these highly acclaimed training events, either as a webinar or in person as a seminar, for the very last time.

Ever!!

So these will indeed be unique opportunities to attend some quality training on how to improve the performance and scalability of both your Oracle based applications and backend Oracle databases.

I’m please to announce that both of my highly acclaimed webinars scheduled for February are now confirmed.

These webinars are a must for any Oracle DBA or Developer interested in designing, developing or maintaining high performance, highly scalable Oracle-based applications or databases.

However only a few places are currently available on each webinar with numbers very strictly limited, as I only run small classes to give every attendee the opportunity to get the most from the training experience.

Webinar details are as follows:

 

8-12 February 2021 (5pm-9pm AEDT) – Oracle Indexing Internals and Best Practices Webinar  (International Customers Only)

This seminar examines most available Oracle index structures/options and discusses in considerable detail how indexes function, how/when they should be used and how they should be maintained. It covers many useful tips and strategies to maximise the benefits of indexes on application/database performance and scalability, as well as in maximising Oracle database investments. Much of the material is exclusive to this seminar and is not generally available in Oracle documentation or in Oracle University courses.

I have just scheduled a new “Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning” webinar to run between 20-23 August 2019, specifically for my friends in New Zealand, but is open to anyone.

It will run between 7am-11am AEST each day, which is perfect for those in NZ, but also other parts of the world such as Western USA.

This is a must attend webinar aimed at Oracle professionals (both DBAs and Developers) who are interested in Performance Tuning. It details how to maximise the performance of both Oracle databases and associated applications and how to diagnose and address any performance issues as quickly and effectively as possible.

A unique feature of this training is that you can submit YOUR AWR reports and using the tuning methodology and techniques discussed in the webinar can be applied directly to determining and addressing performance issues with YOUR own databases.

For all webinar content and how to register, please visit: https://richardfooteconsulting.com/performance-tuning-seminar/

As always, places are strictly limited and can be purchased below:
