One of the Day 1 presentations that really annoyed me was Anthony Zitelli’s Using Oracle’s Extended SQL Trace Data to Quell Disputes. Zitelli is a brash speaker. He introduces himself every year as a developer and then somehow pits himself as a DBA who fights with all developers. You would think that he’s the most anti-developer out there. For some odd reason he calls himself a developer. What irony?
During his presentation he mentioned a freeware tool from Hotsos called the Hotsos Test Harness and Tools Pack that compares query execution details. This is one of the multiple tools that we will have a member of the team investigate.
