So one more successful annual conference of All India Oracle Users Group (AIOUG) happened on November 9th and 10th at Hyderabad, India.
Earlier I used to attend Oracle database sessions at AIOUG but this time AIOUG board had done a remarkable job by extending the coverage to Solaris topics. Obviously as a Capacity Management professional this gave me an opportunity to listen what is going in Solaris world and at the same time share my knowledge around the subject matter. As part of this, I’ve presented a paper on Effective Capacity and Performance management in Solaris Zones environment.
Those who couldn’t attend it can download the paper here. I intentionally kept it bit verbose so that readers will have more details around the topics. Any questions, doubts or suggestions are welcome 🙂
Last month I have posted a poll on my blog and LinkedIn group Oracle Database Performance Tuning about suggestions for a topic for webcast. I am enraptured by the response I got and as you can see below majority of the people have voted in favor of presentation title “Database Capacity Planning how to start?”.
This is inline to my expectations. Last year I have delivered a presentation at AIOUG’s annual meet Sangam11 on the topic “Day Someone Say the word Capacity?”. It was about the basics and concepts related to Capacity planning in general with some specific examples related to Oracle database. Interested people can download the presentation at AIOUG website or Papers and Presentations section of my blog. Since then I have been receiving emails asking how can one start doing Capacity plan for their Oracle databases. The curiosity is also visible in the poll results.
Before organizing a webcast of people’s favorite topic “Database Capacity Planning how to start?”, I am presenting it on upcoming 1-day Event in Pune called “TechDay @ Pune”. It will be on 28th July 2012 at Pune. Details are available here TechDay @Pune.
After this presentation soon I will plan for a webcast on the same topic. Looking forward to meet you on 28th July in case you live in or near to Pune otherwise we will chat during the webcast.
Today I am back from AIOUG Sangam11. It was a great experience seeing and listening to others – Arup Nanda, Kuassi Mensah, Richard Niemiec and Bryn Liewellyn. The session which I liked most was “PL/SQL Enhancements in Oracle Database 11g” by Bryn Liewellyn. He had an excellent slide deck and on top of that he presented with great enthusiasm and style. Then comes Richard Niemiec – he wonderfully presented Oracle Exadata features and configuration. Rest most of the sessions were by Oracle Product Managers – I didn’t like them much.
I am happy with my presentation. It was satisfactory to see large and active audience. No surprise these days people are so interested in capacity planning stuff and Oracle DBAs community is not an exception. Those who couldn’t make this time can find the presentation here:
On 9th December in Bangalore, India I will deliver a presentation at the annual meet of the All India Oracle Users Group (AIOUG) – Sangam11.
My presentation is entitled “Did someone say the word ‘Capacity’?” It is about how to proactively detect the performance problems before they actually happen and Capacity plan your Oracle database. It will demonstrate the methods with an example. You would enjoy the content I have prepared.
Full details are available on the AIOUG website.
I know, it is too early, but hoping to see you there!
