Christian Bilien’s Oracle performance and tuning blog

Just back from some long, laptop-free vacations. I’ll slowly resume blogging as soon as I have cleared up the pile of unread mails. A couple of casual news before getting back to more serious matters:

My blog just reached 10000 hits this morning, a modest but still rewarding accomplishment of a 7 months existence. I had an audience bump a few weeks ago when some excellent well-known bloggers and book writer (Jeff Moss, Doug Burns, Jonathan Lewis, Jeremy Schneider – I hope those I did not name won’t be offended) were kind enough to reference my blog. The RAC entries get by far the most hits, followed by the PGA and storage array related posts. Solaris DISM/ISM posts are also in the top league. Most comments are targeted at storage array cache and raid stuff.

I found in my post office mailbox the awaited “Forecasting Oracle Performance” Craig Shallahamer published at Apress. I indulge a craving for mathematical forecasting so I hope this book bridges the gap between Oracle’s own data (AWR and ASH) and the queuing theory.



  1. If you get chance to blog a review of “Forecasting Oracle Performance” it would be appreciated. It went onto my amazon wishlist yesterday, which probably means I will read in in about 12 months time ( big backlog of books to catch up on ).

  2. Mathew,

    I’ll modestly try to give a feedback (to be honest, I could not resist to go through it this afternoon, but I need to really read it before commenting).
