IOUG Select Journal Editor’s Choice Award 2011

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:

Woo-hoo! :-)

The article itself is here:

Thanks to IOUG crew, John Kanagaraj and everyone else who has read, used my stuff and given feedback! :-)

Note that this year’s only Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting class takes place in the end of April/May 2014, so sign up now if you plan to attend this year!

    Congratulations! I have that article push-pinned near my laptop. I’m a big fan of LatchProf thanks to your article.

    The unspoken part I have liked about LatchProf? It enables me to prove that latches aren’t the problem to folks (let’s not mention the vendor, dammit) who seem convinced they are.

    @Kevin Fries

    It’s easier to say that the DBAs need to “tune” the latches instead of building efficient application code…
