Performance, Escalation, Storage, EBS, Lessons Learned


What's the best optimization conference of the year? On this planet it's the Hotsos symposium. The keynote for 2010 is Tom Kyte and the day-long seminar is by Tanel Poder. You can't beat that.

Chris Warticki has a great article on the step by step process of escalating an SR over at his Oracle Support blog: Support Escalation Process…Again!. Remember, even with Priority Support you will benefit from going to the escalation manager process first, then your SDM.


Kevin Closson enlightens us on some of the under the hood differences between NUMA and SUMA: Intel Xeon 5500 (Nehalem EP) NUMA Versus Interleaved Memory (aka SUMA): There Is No Difference! A Forced Confession. Warning, if you're not REALLY into storage in a very technical sort of way this will lose you before the first comma.
