Hatem Mahmoud – Memory Access Tracing/Profiling

Jonathan Lewis – Just Don’t Do It

Panel Discussion at POUG2017

Marcin Przepiorowski – dNFS for DBAs

Neil Chandler – Why Has My Plan Changed

Timur Akhmadeev – Common Pitfalls in Complex Apps Performance Troubleshooting (same presentation in Russian at Russian OUG meetup in Moscow)

Neil Chandler – Histograms are Evil like Chocolate is Evil (part of the same presentation recorded in Poland as well)

Roger MacNicol – Table Access Full
