SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Embarcadero Technologies announced today it is hosting a free webinar titled "Understanding Oracle Optimizer Statistics" featuring DBA specialist Karen Morton. Two separate sessions will be held on Jan. 29, 2013.
Whether you're a developer or a DBA, you want your application SQL to perform well and remain stable over time. You can stack the odds in your favor by understanding Oracle optimizer statistics and how the optimizer formulates execution plans. The calculations the optimizer uses to make operation choices are rooted in some very simple statistical formulas. These formulas, if understood, can help you make better choices when tuning SQL and improve database performance over the long haul.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- Oracle optimizer statistics fundamentals for computing cardinality/selectivity on single and multi-column predicates
- How statistics can help the optimizer understand data distribution patterns
- Reasons why certain ways of writing SQL limit the optimizer's ability and how query transformations improve the odds
