SOUG: Where's Tanel Poder?

In Tampa, on January 27th, that's where.

Details can be found here. Please RSVP here.

The title of his talk is Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting in 60 minutes.

We have another real treat for you at our January meeting. Oak Table author and Oracle ACE Director, Tanel Poder will give us insight into some of his advanced troubleshooting techniques. What to do when the Oracle Wait Interface isn't enough and Oracle itself doesn't know what it is doing? Tanel will be showing you the method he uses for approaching bugs, session hangs and performance problems where Oracle itself sometimes doesn't know what it's doing. If you've done much Googling on Oracle issues, you've no doubt came across mentions of Tanel's Snapper, LatchProf, MutexProf, and other utilities. Come hear from the author how to utilize these and other proven techniques.

Tanel Poder is an experienced consultant with deep expertise in Oracle database internals, advanced performance tuning and end-to-end troubleshooting. He specializes in solving complex problems spanning multiple infrastructure layers such as UNIX, Oracle, networks, storage and recently the whole Exadata hardware/software stack. Tanel is one of the first Oracle Certified Masters in the world, passing the OCM DBA exam in 2002. In addition to consulting and delivering seminars worldwide, Tanel also publishes troubleshooting tools and technical articles at his website and blog

This even will probably be very well attended. The Central Florida Oracle User Group (CFOUG) is already aware of his presence, so I'm sure they'll be sending a few people down. Since our group is quite heavy on the DBA side, we should have more than our normal number of attendees. I suspect this will be one of our better attended meetings giving the popularity of Mr. Poder. So RSVP early so we can make sure we have enough 1, room and 2, food and drinks for everyone.
