Top Customer Reviews
To date I have been looking for a single resource (book) to use for diagnosing performance issues. This is it! It doesn't matter if you are on Oracle 7 or 10g, this solution gathers the information you need with little overhead.
The book isn't selling third party products like many other books in its league.
Not finished the book yet but I already feel more confident in troubleshooting performance issues.
The book covers many performance tuning diagnostic methods which do not rely on this pack, but there are no warnings about the ones that do. In the interests of fairness, I would suggest this as an update to a subsequent edition.
