Presentation Title

Using Oracle's Extended SQL Trace Data to Quell Disputes


This presentation will discuss the use of Oracle's extended SQL trace data to help win arguments and avoid embarrassment. In the face of software problems, Oracle's extended SQL trace data can often provide the proof needed to defend your innocence, or to help fix problems of your own creation, before anyone notices.

For DBAs and developers alike, Oracle's extended SQL trace data can reveal many details regarding the behavior of software both inside and outside of a database. This behavior can be far different than developers planned or believe. We will discuss several ways that extended SQL trace data can be used to help better understand your software's behavior and its interactions with Oracle. We will look at a wide variety of details contained in extended SQL trace data, and will discuss the merging and analysis of simultaneously collected 10046 trace files, such as those associated with connection pools or multi-threaded applications.
