    2016 Code Talk Series: Hinding All the Red M&Ms: A Story of Indexes and Full Table Scans
    Chris Saxon, Oracle Corporation

    Live from Kscope16!

    “Why isn’t my query using an index?” is a common question people have when tuning SQL.

    This talk explores the factors that influence the optimizer’s decision behind this question. It does so by comparing fetching rows from a database table to finding all the red M&Ms from their bags. It contrasts using an index range scan and a full table scan to do this.

    It introduces the concepts of blocks and the clustering factor. It discusses how these affect the optimizer's calculations. It goes on to demonstrate how these concepts work in practice using real SQL queries.

    This session is intended for developers and DBAs who want to learn the basics of how the optimizer chooses between an index range or full table scan.

    How to Do and Choose Your Best Performance Analysis Strategy
    Craig Shallahamer, OraPub
    The phone rings. It’s performance again, and users are not happy. What is your next move? What is your strategy to identify the issue, develop solutions, and communicate that to others? That’s what this webinar is all about.
    As Oracle DBAs, we have two fundamental performance analysis strategies: time-based and sample-based (ASH). Each strategy has strengths and weaknesses. Knowing these differences and how to exploit them gives you the edge in solving the puzzle.
    In this webinar, you’ll get a quick introduction of each strategy, highlighting how they work, their differences, and how to use them. This webinar will be 80% “how to” with live demonstrations (typing) and 20% pure knowledge (slides).
