Forecasting Oracle Performanceby Craig Shallahamer
Contained in this book are, dare I say, secrets. There is mystery surrounding Oracle forecasting, performance modeling, and capacity planning. In the pages of this book are the secrets I've uncovered and discovered through more than 20 years of working with literally thousands of IT professionals around the world. My goal is to expose these secrets as plainly and completely as I possibly can.
I wrote this book to be a kind of training course or "how-to" book. It's packed full of examples to transform the theory and mathematics into actions that you can apply practically and immediately. Plus I focus on how to communicate and translate the numbers into management information.
Years of experience, my course materials, and mountains of information and notes have been boiled down and placed into this single book. Here, you will learn how to: Choose the data collection strategy that will work best for you, Select the most appropriate forecast model, Characterize complex Oracle workloads, Apply scalability limitations to your forecasts, Methodically forecast to ensure quality and consistency, Identify resources at risk of being overutilized and causing service-level breaches, Develop multiple risk mitigation strategies to ensure service levels are met, Effectively communicate forecast results to management. Forecasting is serious business, but it's also just plain fun and very satisfying. My hope is that this book will excite you, propel you, prepare you, and give you a passion for forecasting Oracle performance.
