I was very impressed by Michael's presentation at IDUG Prague 2011, so I asked him to be our guest and share his tips. Thankfully, for everyone's benefit, he agreed. His SQL examples are terrific.

There are "free" tools and "freely bundled" tools, and there are folks that like to write their own scripts and tools built on top of the free tools. If you are the type that likes to "Do it Yourself", today's guest provided some helpful SQL examples. But, if you are busy writing your own tools and scripts, is this part of your core business? Who is doing the real DBA work?

During our quick commercial break, DBI showed how transaction response times and SLA attainments could be reported with integrated interfaces and work flows to SQL workload analysis. Yes, there are "free" tools, and then there are tools that smarter people use for exceptional results.
