Has anyone upgraded to V12.0? I am looking at possibly doing this for some of the new features in V12.0 but just want to see what others have seen and to make sure the software is a STABLE upgrade. Thanks! - Dave
DPA 12.0 looks to be a very stable version.
The one feedback I've heard is that new navigation was introduced with QPA (Query Performance Analyzer) that takes a little getting used to. However, once users got it, they really liked it and agreed with the navigation change.
Mind posting back with how the upgrade went (smooth, not smooth? and stability post-upgrade) and initial thoughts on new features?
Also, some videos that visually walk you through them:
mandevil - Just did the DPA update this morning to v 12 and it update went great. I think I spent more time taking snap shots and backing up the database than it took for the update. Looks great and the perfstack integration is AMAZING!!! I have to wait for the final all clear from the DBA on my team but so far so good.
Awesome! Make sure to check out the Table Tuning Advisors after a day or two. Think you'll like the insight it delivers.
If you find it cool, post back here with what you think is cool about it. If you don't find it cool, no need to follow up.
Kidding, let us know either way...
