It's impossible to tune an Oracle database without understanding SQL tuning. Oracle is a SQL processing engine and the execution speed of any SQL query is influenced by many factors, both internal and external. As a declarative data access method, SQL relies on the Oracle cost-based optimizer to always choose the "best" execution plan for every SQL query. However, Oracle's SQL is among the most flexible and robust in the world, and along with this great power comes complexity. Tuning Oracle SQL is the single most important skill of any Oracle professional, and Oracle professionals are challenged to create SQL statements that will support thousands of concurrent executions with sub-second response time. "Advanced Oracle SQL Tuning" is a pragmatic treatment of Oracle SQL tuning, short on theory and big on real-world techniques and tips. This book is the culmination of the author's 25 years of full-time DBA experience and he shares expert tips and secrets for hyper charging SQL execution speed. This book covers advanced topics and it is not appropriate for beginners, dilettantes or neophytes.

The target of SQL tuning is the improvement of the existing execution plan. The authors discuss the removal of brakes in the execution plan. Such "brakes" or bottlenecks can be recognized by a formal analysis of the execution plan. For this purpose no data model knowledge is needed. This is especially beneficial for database administrators because they are usually not or insufficiently familiar with the data model. The book presents numerous practical examples with this method.

Expert Oracle SQL: Optimization, Deployment, and Statistics is about optimizing individual SQL statements, especially on production database systems. This Oracle-specific book begins by assuming you have already identified a particular SQL statement and are considering taking steps to improve its performance. The book describes a systematic process by which to diagnose a problem statement, identify a fix, and to implement that fix safely in a production system. You'll learn not only to improve performance when it is too slow, but also to stabilize performance when it is too variable. You'll learn about system statistics and how the Cost-Based Optimizer uses them to determine a suitable execution plan for a given statement. That knowledge provides the foundation from which to identify the root cause, and to stabilize and improve performance. Next after identifying a problem and the underlying root cause is to put in place a solution. Expert Oracle SQL: Optimization, Deployment, and Statistics explains how to apply various remedies such as changing the SQL statement, adding hints, changing the physical design, and more, and how they can be brought to bear on fixing a problem once and for all. Rolling a change out smoothly is an important topic when dealing with tuning and optimization. Expert Oracle SQL: Optimization, Deployment, and Statistics does not let you down in this critical area. The book contains two chapters of good information from an experienced professional on how to safely deploy changes into production so that your systems remaining running and available throughout the deployment process. Describes a systematic approach to tuning Oracle SQL Explains how things are supposed to work, what can go wrong, and how to fix it Takes you through the steps needed to stabilize performance in your production systems
