A fountain of database enlightenment awaits you, but will you embark on this mission to find it?
As lore would have it, a DBA’s treasure of performance intelligence was said to exist in the data center, yet was never found. But now, thanks to intriguing database discovery, the tables are turned and its riches are now within your reach. Grab your trusty mug and prepare to cast off from your current environment in search of enlightened database performance and desirable loot (aka cool prizes).
Sources tell you that Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) 12.0 has the map you’re seeking. Start exploring with Query Performance Analyzerand you’ll find that continual monitoring for inefficient query data access can take the heavy lifting off your shoulders. Database Performance Analyzer can also help you find the queries causing the database engine (and your systems) to work really hard for very little return. Look for Table Tuning Advisors along the way. Discover how you can aggregate the workload from those queries at the table level, supplying the necessary information to help make better proactive tuning and optimization decisions.
Go forth and navigate perilous low ROI queries, missing indexes, and table workloads to dig into a wealth of correlation and analysis. “X” marks the spot for optimizing your database performance!
