4.0 out of 5 stars Indepth and Comprehensive. 16 July 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really liked the bitsize format of this book. You can dip into it and still not miss anything as it is well cross referenced. It also flows well as a cover to cover read. The level of detail is impressive. The explanations are clear, concise and well thought through. Many of the scripts presented are extremely powerful (there are over 140 provided). Yes, there are some typos (missing spaces usually) and a few errors but these are obvious. It will help any Exadata DMA or anyone wanting to expand their Exadata knowledge.

with an excellent follow on to "Expert Oracle Exadata". Oracle Exadata Recipes is like a triage sheet. Quickly identify and treat the specific problem. The problem-solution approach is very targeted. Well organized and at level of detail that shows the author experience.

This book is NOT a foundation/beginner book. Some background/understanding of Exadata required.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it 27 Mar. 2013
By Paul Anderson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most of the 'recipes' in this book would not be approved by Oracle support. They call for loading third party tools in some cases. Someone should have told the author these are engineered systems and this is frowned upon. The information that was presented that was accurate would be stuff anyone who had access to an Exadata for a short period of time would know anyhow.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most quick and simple plan to meet an Exadata 25 Mar. 2014
By softdo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a server manager and I should know how manage an Exadata machine immediately.
It's very important and knowledge written on. In fact, we don't have many solutions to catch events, to monitoring logs. Oracle linux is a kind of unfriendly OS and not served precision reports.
Anyway, this book suggests other ways, methods.
Lots of time saved for me to prepare an Exadata. Thanks.

By RICARDO PRYTZ - Published on
Excellent book. Very instructive with many examples about Exadata processing. There is not much to say about Exadata internals due to it is not documented but this book performs a wonderful approach to this stuff.
