About Oracle Database 11g SQL Tuning Workshop:

This Oracle Database 11g: SQL Tuning Workshop Release 2 training assists database developers, DBAs and SQL developers in identifying and tuning inefficient SQL statements. You'll explore investigative methods to reveal varying levels of detail about how the Oracle database executes the SQL statement; this helps you determine the root causes of the inefficient SQL statements.

In this course you will learn to:

  • Use Oracle tools to identify inefficient SQL statements.
  • Use Automatic SQL Tuning.
  • Use Real Time SQL monitoring.
  • Write more efficient SQL statements.
  • Monitor and trace high load SQL statements.
  • Manage optimizer statistics on database objects.
  • Interpret execution plans, and the different ways in which data can be accessed.
