Title: Oracle Response Time Optimization with Method R
Author: Cary Millsap
Get File:
Abstract: In 2003, Cary Millsap and Jeff Holt prescribed a new Oracle performance problem diagnosis method called Method R in the book Optimizing Oracle Performance. The central tenets of Method R are that you should sequence your performance analysis tasks in business priority order, and that the most efficient way to analyze performance is to decompose the total end-user response time for those prioritized business tasks. Two years after its formal introduction, supporters of Method R cite extraordinary successes, and its critics describe various inadequacies. This paper presents a refined understanding of Method R that incorporates some years of experience with the method since its invention. The paper begins with a description of the method and its distinguishing features. It proceeds with a sequence of responses to commonly recurring questions that prospective adopters of Method R have to answer.
