Hotsos Symposium 2011 Speaker Spotlight - Doug Gault

Presentation Title: Mining Oracle Application Express 4.0 Debug Data for Hidden Performance Trends

Abstract: One of the new features of Oracle Application Express 4.0 is the much improved debug information now stored in the dictionary views. Like before, it can help you diagnose problems during page rendering and processing. But did you know that it can also be used to track, monitor, and identify performance trends across your APEX application? Well, it can.

This session will introduce the idea of monitoring performance trending, the techniques and information necessary for you to mine the Oracle Application Express 4.0 debug data, and the pros and cons of using these methods in a production environment.
