Oracle’s Realworld Performance Team and a New Blog

Greg Rahn of Oracle’s Realworld Performance Group (under Andrew Holdsworth) has fired up a blog. His first entry is about the art of problem diagnosis and I wish I said it this way first, but I didn’t…I quote:

In times like this I find it very productive to create a list of my observations at the different levels: host/system, database, application, etc. Once all of the observations are documented, relationships between them often become more apparent. Remember, it’s better to spend more time and correctly diagnose an observation than to prematurely label it incorrectly.

Sage words indeed. I hold people like Andrew Holdsworth in the highest regard and since Greg is in his group I’m looking for good things from this new blog.

Greg’s blog is :  Structured Data

    Don’t mention it. Readers here know I don’t tip a hat to anyone undeserved. Andy Holdsworth runs a class act and a vital function. I’ll be pleased to get to know any of his crew. He likely wouldn’t remember me…unless you mention Oracle 7 Parallel Query versus Informix PDQ benchmarking for MCI…now THAT was a long time ago…
