Foreword

Foreword

Seldom does an editor have the privilege of editing a book such as this one. From the moment I first saw Cary Millsap’s and Jeff Holt’s proposal for a book called Optimizing Oracle Response Time (that was the original working title) I knew I’d struck gold. This book has everything an editor dreams of: talented authors, rigorous research, groundbreaking material.

I remember well my first foray into Oracle performance tuning. It was back in the Oracle7 days when I was becoming grounded in Oracle. I’d just been handed DBA responsibility for all the databases used by my development group, and what better way to begin my career as an Oracle DBA, I thought, than to make an impact via some serious tuning? So I bought a book. And I read the Oracle manual. I learned about the buffer cache, the shared pool, and hit-ratios.
