|Chris Date||What is a Relational Database? Shedding Some Light.||So what is the TransRelational model? In essence, it is an implementation technology; it represents among other things a radically new and elegant approach to the question of implementing the relational model.||Keynote||90||Chris Date||http://www.justsql.co.uk/chris_date/chris_date.htm||English|
|Tom Kyte||Things you "know"||Many developers and DBAs (not all, but many) approach the
database with little or no understanding of how it actually works. Developers
approach Oracle assuming it must work just like SQL Server or even worse with
the frame of mind that says, "It doesn't matter how it works, I'm using
a layer of abstraction to protect me." DBAs approach the server
sometimes with a cursory knowledge of how things work, leading them to do
things like, "We can skip backing up undo data-it isn't our stuff, we
don't need it" or erasing archives because they ran out of space.
This presentation will present some of these foibles and explain how not understanding how the database actually works will lead to disaster. Some examples of things you just might not know about yourself will be explored. Oracle is big and it is a moving target. Understanding it is an ongoing process that we need to continually do.

|Tom Kyte||SQL Techniques||The presenter will describe common SQL techniques he has encountered and utilizes day to day to tune query performance. Features such as scalar subqueries, using rownum (yes, to 'tune'), analytics, some hints and more will be demonstrated. Emphasis will be on when they work (where the 'trick' applies) as well as when they don't workwhere they do not apply. Care will be taken to show these not as a "top 10 things to do" but rather techniques to keep in mind when looking at problems in general.||General||60||Oracle||Tom Kyte is a Senior Technical Architect in Oracle’s Server Technology Division.

|Ronald Bradford||Explaining the MySQL EXPLAIN||Determining the Query Execution Plan (QEP) of an SQL statement is the primary analysis tool for DBAs.

|Ronald Bradford||Understanding MySQL Indexes||There are some basic problems regarding how MySQL and MySQL
Storage Engines implement indexes in relation to other RDBMS products
In this presentation attendees will learn how to identify and verify MySQL index usage, what essential MySQL Tools exists for determining how to create better indexes and be able to verify the results of improvements. Understanding how the optimizer chooses indexes, generally only one index per table join and also the exceptions. Learn about advanced topics including covering indexes and partial column/prefix column indexes.

|Espen Braekken||Preventing downtime in production MySQL servers||Everyone wants to prevent database downtime by being proactive, but how effective are the common measures such as inspecting logs and analyzing SQL? To be truly proactive, one must prevent problems, which requires studying and understanding the reasons for downtime. We have analyzed a selection of emergency issues that we have solved, to better understand what types of problems really occur in production environments. The results are somewhat surprising and will be detailed in this talk.||Java MySQL OpenSolaris||30||Percona||Espen is the VP of Consulting & Support at Percona.

|Randolf Geist||Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting - Live Session||In this session we'll walk through some common troubleshooting scenarios, starting with the usual inefficient execution plan issues, showing that the Oracle Wait Interface and Session Statistics are usually well suited to spot anomalies and determine where excess work happens. We'll then continue with some less common scenarios where the wait Interface or session statistics tend to be useless and demonstrate some advanced troubleshooting techniques that still allow a systematic approach under such circumstances. This is a live demonstration session along with a couple of slides that describe the techniques applied. The following will be covered during this session: - Extended SQL trace resp. Oracle Wait Interface (I/O, contention, locks) - Session Statistics - SQL Monitoring - Active Session History / S-ASH - Latch/Mutex Activity - Detailed Consistent gets analysis (excess consistent gets) - Oracle cursordump/errorstack/heapdump analysis - Operating System level process tracing||Tech DBA||60||(null)||Randolf is a member of the OakTable Network, the Oracle ACE program and is an Oracle Certified Professional DBA for Oracle Versions 8i, 9i, and 10g.
