In May I received the IOUG Select Journal Editor’s Choice Award for my Systematic Oracle Latch Contention Troubleshooting article where I introduced my LatchProfX tool for advanced drilldown into complex latch contention problems (thanks IOUG and John Kanagaraj!).
As the relevant IOUG webpage hasn’t been updated yet, I thought to delay this announcement until the update was done – but I just found an official enough announcement (press release) by accident from Reuters site:
The article itself is here:
Thanks to IOUG crew, John Kanagaraj and everyone else who has read, used my stuff and given feedback! :-)
NB! Dates updated: After a 1.5 year break, this year’s only Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting training class (updated with Oracle 12c content) takes place on 14-18 December 2015 and 11-15 January 2016 (I had to reschedule the start from November to December). So sign up now if you want to learn new cool stuff!
