For Oracle Developers: High performance PL/SQL

  • Feb 16, 2011 · 5:30 PM
  • Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts

Presenter bio: Guy Harrison is a director of Research and Development at Quest Software, and has over 20 years of experience in database design, development, administration, and optimization. Guy is an Oracle ACE, and is the author of Oracle Performance Survival Guide (Prentice Hall, 2009) and MySQL Stored Procedure Programming (OReilly with Steven Feuerstein) as well as other books, articles and presentations on database technology. Guy is the architect of Quest's Spotlight® family of diagnostic products and has led the development of Quests Toad® for Cloud Databases. Guy can be found on the internet at, on e-mail at [masked] and is @guyharrison on twitter.
Abstract: Each release of the Oracle RDBMS is associated with dramatic improvements in PL/SQL performance. However, the ultimate performance of any PL/SQL program is still in the hands of the PL/SQL programmer. In this presentation we’ll examine trends in PL/SQL performance, look at tools to identify and tune problematic PL/SQL and examine PL/SQL performance best practices. Topics will include opportunities for improving SQL performance by using PL/SQL code, measuring and diagnosing PL/SQL performance issues, best practices for writing high performance PL/SQL and the use of new 11g optimizations to further turbo-charge application code.

    Events like this one clearly show the added value the Sydney Meetup provides, compared to the "official UG channels".
    Thanks once again to Pythian and Yuri for helping to organize this.

    I am glad that I participated. It was very good PL/SQL performance related presentation. Guy gave many hints that could be used in real life. I would suggest anyone to listen to Guy next time you will have such opportunity.
