Presentation Title

Three Approaches to Shared Pool Monitoring for Oracle Database Systems


The shared pool area in Oracle has become a huge memory area over the last ten years, and there is much more than SQL and execution plans held in the shared pool. This presentation will cover three approaches to gaining increased visibility into the contents of the shared pool: 1) using standard oracle views and diagnostics, 2) implementing an in-depth custom monitoring procedure, and 3) shared pool application SQL monitoring.

The approaches here were learned from the school of hard knocks and should be illuminating to many Developers and many DBAs. This presentation will include 12c relevant content.
