    What I've been waiting for!

    I was thrilled to get a copy of the Grid Control "holy grail"!!! This is exactly the material I've been looking for the last 4 yrs while working with Grid Control. Knowing the internals of GC is a key piece to a high performing, scalable, working GC system that can run your entire database operations. The material is presented in a concise, understandable format that will make being a GC Admin much easier for everybody. People don't realize that GC is it's own application that requires care and feeding. The detailed examples will help you put all the expert knowledge to use in your environment. Must have for anybody with GC 10g!
