Speaker: Mr Luca Canali Oaktable
Company: CERN
Co-presenter: Zbigniew Baranowski - CERN
Presentation abstract: A whole new set of tools for investigating OS processes in the userspace is becoming available in the recent Linux kernels. These are of great interest for Oracle DBAs and performance analysts as they offer new ways to probe into the Oracle execution engine for troubleshooting and investigations, notably for those cases where the Oracle wait interface does not provide enough information. The talk will cover the use of Perf, System Tap, DTrace and will also provide examples of relevant visualization techniques such as Flame Graphs.
