Hi Guys,

   I have worked a lot around sql,pl/sql but now I want to delve into Performance tuning from the sractch. I looked at Tom Kye website, and a couple of other sources..but everybody is giving a very scattered knowledge..of performance stuff.I want it from the very basics so I have a  string foundation. To start with the database structure I have books on OCP track of DBA -I fundamentals. From where shud I start the performance tuning that starts from the basics.

Two weeks from now I will be actively on Performance tuning track. and expectations from me are of very basic nature. So help.

and at the same time..CAn anybody tell me what r the tools that r used for Performance tuning. I have heard of DB Profiler but don't know much abt it.

Hi Avi,

Start to get familar with the Cost Based Optimizer, CBO. A lot of info is available on OTN.
Even it's a tuff one to get to know, I think it can help you understand why storage layout, database parameter setting and so forth are essential and actually interesting.
- Good luck on your journey ;-)
