Oracle and UNIX Tuning: Maximizing Client/Server Performance is the first book that presents detailed coverage of maximizing Oracle performance by tuning both the database and the underlying UNIX system. It is also the only database tuning book that presents detailed coverage of tuning both OLTP and decision support databases. The book begins by introducing UNIX kernel-related issues that impact performance; then covers techniques for tuning memory, processors and I/O. There is detailed coverage of how to eliminate SQL bottlenecks, as well as specific guidance on tuning both OLTP and DSS systems. Installation and configuration issues are also discussed. This will be an essential resource for all Oracle database programmers and administrators.
