Hotsos Training Day 2013

Maria Colgan will host the optional Training Day 2013 on March 7, 2013. She is a Senior Principal Product Manager at Oracle Corporation, and her core responsibilities are Data Warehouse Best Practices and the Oracle Optimizer.

Maria's topic is entitled Oracle Optimizer One Day Workshop. Since the optimizer's introduction in Oracle 7, we have been fascinated and intimidated by the Cost-Based Optimizer (CBO) and the statistics it relies on. It has long been felt that the internals of the Optimizer are shrouded in mystery and a degree in wizardy is required to make it do the right thing. This one-day workshop will explain the fundamentals of the CBO and the statistics that feed it, as well as provide a methodology for diagnosing and resolving SQL execution performance problems.
