Title: Optimizing Oracle Performance
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Cary Millsap
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Great Book


This book is a great starting point for beginners (like myself) or a good reference for even experienced Oracle DBAs. It is just what you would expect from an O'Reilly book, it is very readable and presents information in a logical manner. It is refreshing to finally find a book about Oracle performance that does more than provide a collection of "tips" that you can try and then cross your fingers hoping it will improve things. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and it will definitely stay in my library.
I give it only 4 stars instead of 5 because of a couple reasons.1. The author really pushes his hotsos profiler, which I don't mind too much. What did bother me a little bit is that in his case studies and any time showed "Method R" in action, he used the output of the profiler as a starting point. It would have been nice to assume the reader is not going to purchase the profiler and proceed from that point instead of always starting at the resource profile which the profiler outputs. This is a little nitpicky I admit.
2. I would have liked to see an expanded section on seeing Method R in action, or even downloadable sql scripts that you could run on a database and then find the bottleneck in its execution.
Overall, I definitely would recommend this book. It is well worth the money and time.

Good Perl Cookbook


This is not the book you need to read page by page. For my own experience, whenever I find the Perl tasks I need to work out, I would look up this book as the reference. Very comprehensive book provide almost every Perl application in different aspects. Becasue this is not a stand-alone book, you need to buy another Perl book for cross reference. Worth buying.
