Oracle Database 11g: SQL Tuning Workshop Release 2; Training-on-Demand



  • Entwickler
  • PL/SQL-Entwickler
  • Datenbankadministratoren
  • Data Warehouse-Administrator


Erforderliche Vorkenntnisse:

  • Oracle Database: Introduction to SQL

Empfohlene Vorkenntnisse:

  • Oracle Database: SQL Fundamentals I


  • Identify poorly performing SQL
  • Trace an application through its different levels of the application architecture
  • Understand how the Query Optimizer makes decisions about how to access data
  • Define how optimizer statistics affect the performance of SQL
  • List the possible methods of accessing data, including different join methods
  • Modify a SQL statement to perform at its best


This course assists database developers, DBAs and SQL developers to identify and tune inefficient SQL statements. Learn investigative methods to reveal varying levels of detail about how the Oracle database executes the SQL statement; this helps you determine the root causes of the inefficient SQL statements.

Learn To:

  • Use Oracle tools to identify inefficient SQL statements.
  • Use Automatic SQL Tuning.
  • Use Real Time SQL monitoring.
  • Write more efficient SQL statements.
  • Monitor and trace high load SQL statements.
  • Manage optimizer statistics on database objects.
  • Interpret execution plans, and the different ways in which data can be accessed.

Explore the Optimizer

Expert instructors will also help you explore how the optimizer chooses the path. You'll also learn how to influence the optimizer to ensure the best method is used.

Automatic SQL Tuning Tools

This course covers Automatic SQL Tuning tools and resources available in the Automatic Workload Repository. Furthermore, take advantage of bind variables, trace files and different types of indexes.


This course is based on Oracle Database 11g Release 2.
