Database benchmarking is a task that many DBAs only perform on rare occasion - such as before adopting a new hardware and/or software platform. Yet the DBA is often asked to provide an expert opinion on the relative chance for success based upon performing database benchmarks. Yet most database benchmarking projects fail totally or provide less than accurate predictions often resulting in huge surprises. The basic or root cause is almost universally due to common myths and misconceptions. In this session, Oracle ACE Bert Scalzo will prepare you to perform both repeatable and reliable database benchmarks - and how to avoid the most common problems and their associated misery.
