OOW 2015 Sessions and Labs – Oracle Open World

OMG … only a few weeks to go … Oracle Open World 2015 in San Francisco is coming closer and closer …

And this year will be really tough as we have a reduced number of people there – but more work to do as in previous years. 3 talks (2 for Upgrade, 1 for Data Pump), 4 labs (all in Nikko Hotel 15min walking distance from Moscone Center) – plus a good number of customer meetings already lined up. Plus the chance to meet so many great people … and not to forget the Data Warehouse Global Leaders event at the Oracle HQ.

I have that strange feeling that I will be VERY tired when I’ll board the plane on Friday night heading back to Germany … 😉

Focus On Upgrades/Migrations

As the fantastic application we are using for the OOW content catalog doesn’t allow me to link directly to a session Roy has built a Focus On document to guide you to some important talks around Upgrades and Migrations at OOW2015.for your convenience:

  1. Yes, I know (read) that. so I put this question. every year we enjoy Tomkyte’s Keynote and his Top N style (Top 11 things about 11g, Top 12 things about 12c and five things about sql/plsql/performance) presentation. Miss you Tom !

  2. Believe me, we all miss Tom a lot.

    But he worked so entirely hard the past years, spending tons of time in airplanes, taxis, airports, trains, taxis, airports … at some point you need to take some time off and see what is life all about.

    Thanks
    Mike

  3. Mike,

    Tom explained yesterday that in Oracle Database 12c Incremental Statistics Collection has gotten a few excellent extensions making it more efficient:

    Smaller footprint on disk for synopses compared to previous releases
    Incremental stats with partition exchange operations
    Ability to define a stale percentage for existing partitions

    </quote>

    By any chance do you have the test scripts / benchmarking results that Tom used for this "Smaller footprint comparision with previous releases" ? can you share that?

  4. There’s no benchmark script available to test this. We know it simply from changes in the code. You could of course verify the footprint in disk in
    SYS.WRI$_OPTSTAT_SYNOPSIS_HEAD$
    SYS.WRI$_OPTSTAT_SYNOPSIS$
    and compare 11g and 12.1.0.2 to each other – then you’ll see a significant difference.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Mike,

    For those who missed OOW like me.

    do we have any chance in near future to get access to the above presentation?

    Thanks
