I need to 'profile the database'. I am not sure if this is a fancy way of saying benchmarking/monitoring and tuning the database.
We have just moved from SQL Server to Oracle and I need to put a plan to do this. Since we are an internet startup we have too little direct activity to measure now, but I need a plan in plan as to how I would do that.
Any pointers in getting this done would be highly appreciated. I need to do an awesome job in this so any direction or at least a listing of things that would complete it would help. I have seen many scripts but want to make sure I cover all angles.
I can do the search etc, all I need is a rough list.
Thanks in advance.
Start with some good books about performance.
I usually start with the manual and Oracle 8i press books.
There an excellent section on Tuning.
Also, try metalink for some notes and the internet.
A good starter script is utlbstat/utlestat and the stats packs for 8.17 and later...
One thing to note. tuning is not a one-time thing, it's a journey...
I'm sure other can reccommend some other perscribe info...
