Oracle Database Memory Serialization Control (latches & mutexes)

0 ratings | 2985 views
Oracle Database Memory Serialization Control (latches & mutexes) teaches Oracle DBAs the ends and outs about Oracle memory structure control. Oracle effectively creates the illusion of simultaneous memory structure manipulation. And it's our job to ensure this illusion remains a mystery to our users. To help you keep this illusion real, in this seminar I will lead you into the mysterious world of Oracle memory structure serialization control by exploring latches and mutexes: what they are, how they work, how we monitor their performance, how we tell if there is a significant problem and how we systematically diagnose the situation. I think you will soon understand why I think Oracle serialization control rocks! For details go to http://www.orapub.com/video-seminar-serialization-control PART ONE of this seminar focuses on why latches and mutexes are so important to Oracle's operations and how Oracle uses latches and mutexes in its kernel code. I also dig into how Oracle's time model relates to latching. This enables you to properly diagnosis and communicate to others why or why not latches/mutexes are a significant performance issue. Finally, I get into how Oracle increases concurrency by effectively using multiple latches of the same type to increase memory structure concurrency. It's fascinating and very important for DBAs who want to pursue a career focused on Oracle performance tuning. PART TWO begins by focusing on advanced latch spin control and detailing three ways to identify the problem latch. Then I'll begin digging deep into mutexes, including why they are important, why Oracle began using them and the acquisition algorithm. I'll even get into advanced mutex control using Oracle instance parameters. We will observe Oracle using mutexes by operating system tracing Oracle processes. It's pretty cool and key for any DBA who wants to become a performance expert.
