As usual, the Goodies are intended to be debates, so please post any questions or follow-ups with the relevant time-index from the video.
Featuring Doug himself, he discusses Parallel Basics. This video is a good introduction to using Oracle Parallel features and most importantly, what problems you may have with it. Topics discussed:
- Basic Parallel Execution (PX) architecture
- Degree of Parallelism and number of slaves
- Instance configuration for parallel operation
- Hints for Parallelism
- Common problems
- Dictionary queries for monitoring parallel operations
P.S.: I love the moment that the thumbnail captured.
