Day one was quite interesting! We learnt a lot of staff about tuning approach, I have got confirmation that most of the “WE KNOW THAT, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO” were maybe one day true, but are no longer, for example “separate index and tables”, or, delightfull, “you must periodically reorganise your tables”. I also learnt about DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO, which I may use in my dba-scripts too.
I also feel relaxed that designing a table to be IOT or Hash-Clustered is NOT a dba task, but a developer task. Wow, finally, the dba have to look at the database not at the table structure to gain performance…
In the evening, we had a dinner with my friend Fabrice, my ZKB-collegue Roman, my future ex-lc collegue Marc, a reader of tom blog and mine one called Leo, and also Lutz, who is working for Oracle University, and of course Tom, who enjoyed the fishes 😉
soon day 2, so i have to go to bed right now
